The Amazing Moby Wrap

Moby Wrap in Pacific
Moby Wrap in Natural
Moby Wrap in Sienna
Think of a dream carrier for a new baby – what would make it perfect? How about something that is comfortable for both mom (or dad, grandma, whomever) and baby, brings the two of you closer together and soothes fussy babies. It should be easy to wash AND simplify life for mom, allowing her to be uniquely close to baby while remaining hands free to do daily tasks, gentle workouts and breastfeed with ease. Sounds impossible, but Moby Wraps truly do all that and more. Uniquely designed without cumbersome padding, snaps or belts, Moby Wraps are easy to adjust and accommodate different positions and holds based on baby’s age and weight. Made from soft, slightly stretchy cotton, Moby Wraps have a devoted following who will gladly tell you what they love most Moby Wraps and baby wearing. We’re fans of how they can be used for skin to skin “kangaroo care” for newborns and still be used until baby is up to 35 pounds. Read more about these innovative wraps here and shop for your favorite color at Layla Grayce.

Which Petunia is the fairest of Fall?

If you are finding this question hard to answer, you are not alone. As the saying goes – “Petunia Pickle Bottom: The original, collectible, fashionable, diaper bag.” With strong designs this fall, oh how easy it will be to pick up a new bag (or two) to add to your collection. Perhaps it’s the scrumptious Chocolate Decadence Cake Clutch with its melt-in-your-mouth velvet detailing. Or if a bolder modern look is more your flavor, indulge in Dancing in Dublin Boxy Backpack. Its chic Euro styling paired with Petunia’s sleek and functional glazed exterior has this bag sky rocketing to best seller status. And who isn’t wild about Scout? Their rugged Rubicon Rucksak (say that three times fast) was reviewed as the “Best Daddy Bag” by, so you know this bag is the cr?®me de le cr?®me and chicest of the chic – daddy-wise of course. Petunia my dear, you’ve done it again.

Artisan Spotlight – A Gem of Summer

As an inspired artisan, Rachel of Adeline a Mare shares a few words with us regarding the visions and influences of her work.

“I have always from a very young age had an eye for all things beautiful and feminine. My grandmother taught me how to sew and crochet as a child, in school I was always drawn to art and photography. I guess jewelry was just a natural progression, and came somewhat easy for me.

Inspiring Rachel’s creative process:

I love to sit at my worktable with all of my gemstones spread out in front of me, and I just play with different color combinations and textures….faceted stones with smooth, and golden wire wrapped coils, with pops of silver. Living in Hawaii I am always surrounded with vibrant colors, as well as a very unique hippie/chic/European vibe here on the north shore of Maui. My favorite color to work with, of course, is that beautiful aqua blue of the ocean, ahh…”

Enjoy Rachel’s quality collection and be the gem of your summer gathering all year round.

DwellStudio Fun Kit To The Rescue

DwellStudio Fun Kits
How clever is this? We’re having a hard time deciding who will love this more – children or their parents. Picture this: You’re out and about with your little angel, maybe visiting with a friend, grabbing a bite to eat with the family or hanging with the in-laws. And suddenly that little angel starts getting a wee bit out of control because they have NOTHING TO DO and repeating over and over “WHEN ARE WE GOING TO GO MOM?” Before total meltdown ensues, the well prepared mom can pull out her handy DwellStudio Fun Kit and save the day. This all-in-one entertainment station comes with crayons and a scribble pad plus a zipped compartment for Play-Doh, small toys or pocket games. Made of coated canvas, DwellStudio’s Fun Kit is compact and style savvy, available in your choice of five colorful, graphic prints. Ditch those broken crayon stubs nesting in some inner pocket of your purse and make room for the Fun Kit. You may even get to enjoy some uninterrupted adult conversation!
