This made us all laugh! How cute is this little handmade costume? We are loving it!
Hello everybody! My name is Eric Pfleeger and I am a stay at home dad. I will be a regular guest blogger here so I just wanted to introduce myself briefly. I hope you all enjoy the post and I’ll see you again next week!
My stay at home dad skills were put to the test just recently while my wife was on a job in Asia for 3 1/2 weeks. Japan was the one place that she was able to shop and here are a few of the things she brought back. Pretty much everything is for our daughter’s lunches. They take their lunchtime pretty seriously over there. And from what my wife brought back, it seems everything is pretty dang cute. She found this amazing fabric that our daughter helped sew into napkins for school and then there are these foil papers that they wrap their sandwiches in that have happy faces all over them. One of my favorite items is an egg carrier with very minimal graphics to represent a chick. The egg sits perfectly inside with about an eighth of an inch space around it. Tomorrow begins the second week of kindergarten for our daughter and I am very excited to spruce up the lunch situation. That’s right, Japan brought back the fun in my lunch making, and hopefully my daughter’s lunch receiving. Today I am wrapping a sandwich in nifty foil paper with smiley faces and sticking little plastic letters in it that spell her name. Followed by cute little bunny boxes containing small steamed vegetables. The napkins are one of a kind hand sewn by her and her mommy and will be strawberry pattern this time. Next time they will have acorns. I might even throw in one of those plastic sushi grass things. I know…I’m out of control. This enthusiasm might even last through the week.

There were so many cute photos of the kids at our Halloween shoot. Here are a couple of them!
Andrew & Audrey is an amazing new label that I just can’t get enough of. We have an exclusive interview with designer Rujira as well as a look into their Fall/Winter collection! This winter the must have trend is plaid and stripes which are classic but still cool patterns and I love how Andrew & Audrey have incorporated these trends in the newest collection! I defiantly need to get that plaid jacket in the last photo for my 2 little guys!

Why did you start Andrew & Audrey?I was inspired by the Americana theme & my love with fully fashioned sweater.
We love children labels! What makes fashion for kids more appealing to you then doing a line for adults?I love when I see the joy in the kid’s faces when I put my cloth on them. It is very rewarding
What is your favorite thing in your current collection?Boy: 1/2 striped v nk cardigan* I love the simple cardigan shape but we made it more fun by mixing fully fashioned sweater with striped jersey fabric
What is your personal style like?I love neutrals colors, layers, simple cut/shape & makes which can look even more interesting by playing with different proportion. It creates a very interesting & a different look every times when u get dress by just playing with different length & width of your garments. You should try it.! It’s lots of fun when I play dress up with my nieces.
What was the hardest part about designing or wanting to be a designer?Creating something from inside & be consistent
What advice could you give any mother or person who would want to start a line?If you are passionate about what you do. You will be very successfulWhat a great interview with such an inspiring designer. Thank you so much for taking your time out to talk with us about your line!

This magical dollhouse made of found items reminds me of when I was in kindergarten and the teacher made a cubby hole into a magical leprechaun house. I remember staring at the little cubby hole hoping that the leprechaun would jump out so I could catch his pot of gold. I love how being little ones have those little moments when there is absolutely no worries and everything is still so magical! Dollhouses make great gifts for kids
