Plush Herbert

Aren't Maggie Hurley's Plush owls the cutest?!  I must buy one for my godson but just my luck, they're sold out. I'll have to custom order one, but I can't decide because there are so many to choose from! Which one do you like?

Also, check out the book she self-published called "The Accidentally Adventures of Herbert the Owl." Cute.

flora and henri children's boutique

As I was wandering around the Capitol Hill neighborhood the other morning, I turned a corner and came across the sweetest children's boutique I have ever seen - flora and henri! Such a sweet name too! Take a look at these adorable outfits...

The sweet little bloomers remind me of the matching dresses my two sisters and I wore growing up - unhappily, of course! My mother sewed the dresses herself along with matching bloomers for underneath. For some reason, I don't remember swooning over them back then as much as I am now.

Along with the adorable clothing and toys for children, they carry many things for mothers as well including Repetto ballet flats (love!) lightweight scarves, and delicate jewelry. Such a lovely shop for the stylish & chic mother and child!
