Juniper Wilde

Recently, I came across Juniper Wilde while searching for “mountain baby blankets” for an upcoming baby shower. Pinterest and Google both took me straight to this sweet little shop, filled with cozy organic baby things. I ended up purchasing the sweet mountain baby blanket, for a friend’s soon-to-be baby boy. Everything in this shop is so sweet and so cozy. From hats and headbands to blankets, sheets, and pillows, these designs are just lovely! Started by a new mom in 2010, Juniper Wilde sells only handmade, eco-friendly options for little ones. (How adorable is that peach cloud blanket above??!)   […] Continue reading →

The designer created the Casaurus, a dinosaur shapped bookshelf as part of his senior thesis project and man oh man is it ever cool! This dinosaur offers a tail-like slide for children as well as plenty of shelves and small boxes – all of which are made for climbing. There is even a reading nook located underneath the dinosaur’s […] Continue reading →

It would be wonderful if Europeans would come to America and teach our government how to build a public school. Because really, doesn’t every child deserve a rainbow in the middle of their playground and whale dividers in the washrooms? I say it should be […] Continue reading →
