Friday & Summer Toys

kitchenfunHappy Friday!

It’s been a busy week for us at the new house. This morning I visited the pediatrician to make sure we were all good to go with shots. Camp starts Monday and both Harper & Rex will be going together! I’ve also been researching babysitting as well as preschools for fall. There are so many choices out here & it is a difficult decision.

Before we moved I donated a bunch of our bigger toys. So, now I am shopping for a few new things for the kids to play with. They love playing make believe & I have my eye on a few summer stands as well as a new shopping cart. All of these cute toys are currently on sale at Zulily. Which one is your favorite?

Hi Shari,

I wanted to share this picture of my daughter playing with her Noah’s Ark that my Mum knitted for her. There are two of every animal and it’s been a year in the making!

Thanks for the beautiful blog!

Baby Girl

Hi! Irene here again from designstiles.

I’m at the age now where everyone I know seems to be having babies. Friends, friends of friends, sister’s friends, mom’s friends. Okay maybe not mom’s friends, but you get the point. I have a few clients too who are having baby girls. And while I spend some time searching for their baby’s nurseries, I can’t help but save some items that draw my attention.

Here’s a collection of baby girl items that I think are just kind of cool. Like this crib, with an acrylic front. Sleek and modern.Little_girlspinkaquanursery

Happy Wednesday!

Rexy’s New Sandals

Hope you all had a nice Memorial Weekend! We spent the weekend unpacking/organizing our new home. If you’ve been following our move across the country on Instagram, you know why blogging has been sporadic. After our week long road trip from NJ to AZ, we moved into our new house on Tuesday afternoon. Now that we are here and settled (well kind-of), I’ll be back to regular blogging.

So, today I want to talk about sandals for boys. Do you have a favorite brand/pair?

Before our cross country road trip I searched everywhere for a cute/comfortable pair of sandals for Rex. I wanted something leather, masculine, unique, and fast to put on his little feet. When I saw Livie & Luca’s black Stego Sandals I knew they’d be perfect! They go with so many of Rex’s outfits, are super comfortable, and he can run/play in them as well.

What do you think? Have you purchased shoes by Livie & Luca? Here are a few of my other faves for summer:
