Little things all around me...

For those of you who know me,
you well know of my infatuation with all things little--
tiny chic clothing (of course!), quiet details,
and a most favorite song, by Los Lobos,
bearing the name "Little Things".

So you can only imagine my thrill at
having the chance to create
exclusive tiny chic styles
for the new web-based store, (get ready!)--
the little-little black dress shop.

You'll find all three styles (clockwise, from top left)
Lainey, Greta & Ava dresses
ready for whatever special occasion your little one has on her calendar.

tiny chic treehouse

 This past Saturday in San Francisco was like a summer's day.  At least, like a 'summer's day' in any other part of the country.  In San Francisco, I suppose, this time of the year is when we get our summer, something that I still find hard to accept, even after I have passed my ten year anniversary of residing here!

So on that sunny Saturday, my daughter and I climbed, (barefoot, mind you!) up to her treefort and made a dreamy little bedroom where she could lounge and read her favorite books.  You know, the kind of thing you do on a lazy summer's day.

The job entailed finding just the right tree branch that could double as a curtain rod; and then scouring through the assortment of 'stuff' in our garage, until we found the shower curtain clips that made it all come together.

And even though the sun was shining and the temperature was soaring above 75degrees, we hung Christmas ornaments and twinkling lights, knowing that the weather would soon honor the season and start to cool down.

And here is the finished piece...enjoy.

ses petites mains and EARTH tees

Ah, Mother Earth--I adore her. 
The movement, the seasons, the rhythms;
all of it -- she is the quintessential work of art.

So when I saw the EARTH tee by
the talented artist Philip Krohn,
well, I had to get my hands on them. 

Now, my little work of art can show her love
for her Mother...I mean Mother Earth.
And when you purchase a tee you are actually supporting
nonprofit groups that tend to Mother Earth. 

And there we are, right back from whence we came.

Get yours here....Available in youth sizes s, m, l.  $22
Made of imported organic cotton, printed in the USA.
