Honor Roll

Sometimes I come across something so cute/sweet/charming/funny/pretty/inspiring/lovely that I just want to share it with you.  These are the things that have made my  honor roll.


I also write for Babble’s Family Style blog. Here’s what I’ve been sharing there…

  • This iPad book, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, is amazing. The story is really sweet too (it makes me a little weepy). Take a look at out how they made it.
  • The new IKEA catalog is out! Browse the whole thing and see the small-space inspiration that went into it.
  • Personalized plates for kids. (The milk and cookies one is my favorite.)
  • Colin Meloy (of the Decemberists) and his wife, illustrator Carson Ellis, have teamed up on a chapter book: Wildwood.
  • I think Eleanor would love wearing these! Think I should get them for her?

    I’m a 26-year-old ‘little girl’ and love wearing those boots (okay, so I love making them swish)! I’m sure your little girl would love them too!
