Bria ApronFirst, happy Wednesday! You made it half way through the week…I hope you feel accomplished because I certainly do.

So, back in December I was searching for the perfect birthday present for L’s best friend and I stumbled across these little gems. I found them at RetroActive Kids and completely fell in love with them! They are art smocks and aprons for kids in really bold and cute patterns from Luke & Loolu. This company was co-founded by a Seattle mom…which you know I love.

Luke & Loolu also have a number of other great products check out their site to see more.

Check out the aprons & smocks:

SincPizza Felt Foode I was a little girl I have always loved play food. On many occasions I have told D how excited I am to buy L her first pieces of play food. I don’t know what it is about the fake food…it just makes me smile. I came across these Etsy finds the other day and I’m pretty sure I will buy some. It is play food made from felt by Pickle Things. There is everything from sushi to pancakes to chocolate chip cookies. These sets are adorable. Here are some of my favorites:

I love handmade things. I think they make the sun shine just a little bit brighter even here in Seattle. Today, me, L and D were taking our usual Sunday morning walk, we stopped into RetroActive Kids (one of my favorite places) and this product made me smile, Mama K’s Aromatic Play Clay. Handmade play dough is just so cute…and it smells good too, what could be better then that? We bought the lavendar.
