  • f&f holiday q&a: chase simmering of strange birdy studio

    by Summer

    Meet Chase Simmering. She's the creative force behind Strange Birdy Studio. Strange Birdy is a small design studio that has re-imagined the standard baby "book" & how baby's 1st year is documented. Super upbeat, modern, edgy... and relatable.  And? She's even thought to document all the miscellaneous milestones such as "peeing on parents" (been there!).  Strange Birdy Studio is also part of the current batch of Forest Finds.

    What is your fondest childhood holiday memory?
    My fondest childhood holiday memory is probably driving and picking out our Christmas tree from Mr. Potter's farm. Mr. Potter delivered fresh eggs and chicken to my family for years and each Christmas, we would drive an hour to his farm and walk deep into his land in search of the perfect tree. We'd have sugar cubes and carrots in our pockets for his horses, and there were always litters of newborn kittens to hold and thermoses of hot cider to drink. Every year my sisters and I would try and pick the biggest and fullest tree we could find and the search was very focused but extremely exciting. There were more than a couple years where the tops of the trees would be bent under our ceiling--from a child's perspective, once fully decorated and lit-up, it felt like the set of the Nutcracker in our living room.

    What is your child's/family's most loved holiday tradition?
    My daughter is 2 1/2 (and soon to be a sister) and just starting to really understand holidays and traditions. One thing that my husband and I have made a tradition is picking a special food we can make with her for each holiday. My husband loves to take her to the garden to learn about and pick ingredients for the meals they create together--I typically handle the desserts. For the upcoming holidays, she'll definitely be doing a lot of dough rolling and pie-filling. We also have carried on a tradition that my mother began, where each year she would design an ornament for each of us that symbolized something significant from our year. It's wonderful to unpack and hang the ornaments, and tell each story as you go. Her sister is due to arrive shortly after Christmas so we're going to fold in as much old and new tradition as we can before then!

    What is your favorite holiday treat?
    Being raised by an amazing cook and foodie and now being married to one, picking a favorite is nearly impossible. One savory treat I can't seem to handle skipping every Christmas though is Yorkshire Pudding. It's pretty decadent but definitely one of those nostalgia foods I can't seem to outgrow. I wish I could link to my mother's recipe but found this one which seems pretty spot on.

  • f&f holiday q&a: elle rowely of solly baby wraps

    by Summer

    elle rowley, solly baby

    Meet Elle Rowely. She is the hot mom & brilliant business women behind Solly Baby. She's re-invented the traditional baby wrap that mothers have used.... forever and given it a clever, stylish update. If you have not had success with other baby wraps (they're always too big for me and I dislike all the excess fabric) .. then Solly is the one for you! And? Solly Baby is a part of this month's Forest Finds.

    In the spirit of the spirit of the Holidays I asked Elle about all of her favorites... thx Elle!

    What is your fondest childhood holiday memory?
    I spent much of my childhood in the swampy lands of southeast Texas as the youngest of seven children in a rather poor family. We rarely got new clothes, much less new toys throughout the year, except for on Christmas.

    To say it was merely exciting would be a gross understatement. It was like we won the lottery every December 25th. My parents went out of their way to make Christmas over the top and they’d spread the presents out so far you couldn’t walk into the living room, which was easy to do with presents for seven children.

    Walking into that room was like magic. The closest thing I’ll ever get to being in a fairytale. I’d love to create really big, exciting moments like that for my kids now.

    What is your child’s/family’s most treasured holiday tradition?
    My mother in-law started and passed down the tradition we call “25 books”. We wrap up the same 25 children’s Christmas books every year and put them under the tree. Every night your children choose one to unwrap and we read it cuddled up under a Christmas quilt she had made for our family.

    It keeps us close as a family through the busy holiday season and really gets us feeling the holiday spirit early on. Plus, my husband and I are avid readers so any chance we can share that with our children we feel like we’re doing something right.

    What is your favorite holiday treat?
    I am obsessed with The Ticket Kitchen’s hot chocolate on a stick. Their vanilla mint and salted caramel are to die for. It’s like Christmas in your mouth.

  • i love kooroo

    by Summer


    This month's Forest Finds selection was all about simplicity and well crafted design. Kooroo was at the forefront of my curating as their animal banks encompass just that. 

    Well crafted simplicity.

    Kooroo's troop of animals are conceptualized in the studio of husband & wife Jake and Cara, and then brought into reality using local Kansas craftspeople.

    My favorite is the Lion bank. He's perfect.  Shop the Kooroo collection!

  • beck to nature

    by Summer


    It's the Rocking Horse that got me.  A timeless classic, thoughtfully updated. Solid wood and a cute saddle seat! Beck to Nature is a total Forest Finds.

    Beck to Nature's collection of children's furniture is handcrafted, solid wood and heirloom quality. On the spendy side perhaps, but for good reason -- beautiful pieces that will surely outlast the rug & tug of childhood play.

    And did you see the Koko Balance Cubes? Think couch cushion stacking meets pillow fight playing. The Koko Balance Cubes were created for just that and more. Stacking, balancing and even a game of leap frog. Made with the same inside goodness as Beck to Natures crib mattresses and covered in organic cotton canvas.

    Check out the entire collection of Beck to Nature, including their eco crib mattress & accessory collection.

  • goatmilk

    by Summer


    Goatmilk is one of our amazing Forest Finds right now & oh what a find! With European sensibility, Goatmilk's organic underwear for babies and kids is perfection.

    Working within a simple color palette, Goatmilk has created a beautiful collection of clothing & underwear rich in subtle texture and thoughtful designs. I love the pointelles and stripes and sweet baby tank one pieces.

    And because I have big boys, the Tartan Thermal Bottoms and Striped Boxers bring a smile to my face.

    Shop the Goatmilk collection.
