Sukha Amsterdam. Sukha is a cool version of a warehouse. Everything they sell is fair trade, made with love and appreciation of detail: clothing, furniture, jewelry, books, etc. The concept of the store was envisioned to be a place where people are easily drawn in by the warm atmosphere. Gray Label has therefore found a home for her collection. The store is located on the Haarlemmerstraat 110 and is open Monday from 12-6pm, Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-6.30pm and Sunday from 12-5pm.

Linda Magazine, tipped me about this coat... What can I say... It's just so adorable! Little Goodall was started by Molly Goodall, who’s story many of us can relate to. These designs are all custom made with wool blend ECO felt and cotton linings made from 100% post consumer plastic bottles. Other styles are also available like the fox, bear or dinosaur. More than just a jacket, they are like little works of art that are meant to be handed down from generation to generation. But to be honest, this is one I wouldn’t give up!

Danish Crafts. Carved in wood by hand, and in genuine lambswool, the rocking sheep is a concentrate of love, gentleness and authenticity. I love this beautiful sheep, super soft, that you want to adopt immediately. There is no more "huuu dada", from now on long live the "bééehhh"! It is certain, you will love it... Little piece of information: Each sheep is a unique piece. Therefore the length of the wool may vary from one model to another. Available at brebi.it (BTW also great webshop)

School Supplies, a collection of fabric stationery artwork by Los Angeles based artist Megan Whitmarsh. The adorable collection includes Sharpie colored pens, erasers, pencils, ruled paper, 4-color pen, all with authentic colors and hand-embroidered details.

fun masks created by Rachel Domm for JCrew blog, and had to share. All you need to do is download the pdf template, add your own color touches, glued it on a cardboard, punch some holes, and you have a pretty cool mask for Halloween, or any parties! Oh yes, and don’t forget the ribbon. I really like how it adds color, texture and personality to the mask. For all kids and even adults (as long as the mask fits you )… Download the template here.

SPIRIT HOOD. Spirit Hoods from Los Angeles, first started making spirt hoods for adults. It was such a hit with celebrities they decide they would be the perfect accessory for the little ones and boy they were right. Spirit Hoods connect kids in a unique and creative way to nature and our animal friends. Spirit Hoods are about friendship, family, love, generosity, and bonding with each other. A Spirit Hood is more than just a cool furry animal hat; it inspires children to bond in a completely new way to the world around them. Spirit Hoods was founded and inspired by the relationship that humans have with the animal world. They believe in inspiring positive change and educating people that everyone can help; this is why they created PRO BLUE! When you purchase a SpiritHood with the PRO BLUE logo, they donate 10% of net profits to a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and rehabilitation of that particular Spirit animal. A major goal of theirs is to educate people on the importance of helping these animals and empowering them to make a difference Buy a Spirit Hood, Help an animal.

For cookie lovers with a sense of humor. If you’re wondering, ABC stands for “already been chewed”. These slightly imperfect gingerbread cookie cutters will create cookies that make you smile, even before you take the first bite. Comes packaged as a set of three in an acetate box. Pretty cute huh? Imagine your guests’ reactions at half-chewed cookies … Available on Amazon.com

I found an ideal bag for going to the beach with kids or for a weekend away… this limited edition LOVE bag. The unique bag is hand made from recycled sailing cloth (100% cotton). It is made by local fishermen in Kenya who now are able to earn an income to support their families (which they couldn’t with fishing). I just love it!

After giving birth, I had enough time to relax and search for new inspiration for my blog. I found some wonderful things, this is one of them; a vintage themed kids’ birthday party that is designed by Vicky Hudgins of The City Cradle. It has to be one of the sweetest celebrations I have come across!
I love everything about it, from the cute vintage photo booth, creative props, to the mouth watering treats at the sorbet stand. Each activity is beautifully thought out, created and decorated, while keeping to a gorgeous peachy pink color palette.

Uncle Goose blocks are a favourite at our house! Our 2-yr old son loves them (especially arranging them by colours on the embossed sides), and after months of use they still look as good as new! The Uncle Goose ABC Blocks are hand crafted in Grand Rapids from sustainable Michigan basswood and embossed with child safe inks. Each block features a unique animal picture, a number or math symbol, and four letters for a total of four alphabets.
Not only are blocks fun for all, but they’re great for developing fine motor skills.
