My children delight in finding treasures. So do I. Here are my little gems.
Le souk always carries simple and elegant designs for the home as well as a small selection of items for children. I have a few domestic projects lined up, one being my son’s room. And, like many little boys, he loves cars. After a busy day running around like speed racer, I think this pillow would be the perfect bedtime companion for him.
My kids are in preschool so I haven’t been keeping up with any “back to school” finds. However, most kids would probably find fragrant writing tools entertaining. The pencils (or smencils) are made from 100% recycled newspaper and come in an array for smells. What a fun way to draw as well as keep those busy backpacks smelling lovely.
How cool are these Trebimbi utensils? I thought my kids had pretty stylish Trebimbi sets but these Lego ones are so much fun! You can find them on Amazon.
I adore vintage cars and couldn’t resist capturing this image of a Morris Minor parked at our local service shop. Still cool.
I wish I knew who built this sand castle, it really made my day!
I'm trying not to feed my daughter's pink obsession, so only a small amount of fresh raspberry purée was used for a hint of color.
I love how
Gesine Bullock-Prado refers to meringues as “crunchy clouds” in her book,
“Confections of a Closet Master Baker”. My daughter thinks there is something
magical about meringues - fluffy little treats that she cannot categorize as a
cookie, cake, or chocolate (as she explains to her younger brother). What she
does know is that they are full of sugar goodness and make her giggle (always
the recipe, Gesine writes about her experiences with families who visit her
bakery. I laughed at her comparison of adults and children as decision-makers.
When it comes to sweets, the kids “always know what they want, how they want
it, and when they want it.” So true.
