hand crafted wooden toy giveaway

simple.great- organic wooden toy giveaway

Friends, I’m so excited to share today’s post with you. Like, so so so very excited.

wooden play makeup set (by simple.great on etsy)This little collaboration can be traced back to when Piper asked for makeup for Christmas. Adam and I said no way. She redoubled her niceness efforts and asked for ‘play makeup’ instead. We said we’d think about it. Then I started shopping around and could only find bright, plastic-y, tacky options- no thanks. Have you ever tried to find ‘play makeup’? It’s rough out there.

simple great wooden makeup setEnter simple.great., my brother-in-law Patrick’s organic wooden toy company. I asked if I could commission a wooden makeup set and he graciously agreed. And, y’all, this all natural, wooden ‘play makeup’ is the best thing ever. Not only is Piper Jane absolutely over the moon about it, I love the natural aesthetic as well! It’s beautiful and functional- creative play at its very best.

wooden block setLittle did I know that we’d be receiving a whole box of simple.great goodies… like this wooden block set for Burke.

handmade block set by simple.greathandmade wooden blocksIt is truly fantastic… like, Land of Nod quality. Again, it’s a win-win because Burke thinks it’s amazing and I don’t mind if he leaves it out in the living room when we’re having people over.

handmade wooden toysJust a few other simple.great things I love- this rolling wooden dog pull toy, these little trucks, tractors and tanks (the tank is Burke’s other favorite pick)… In fact, there isn’t anything in this shop that I wouldn’t be so excited for my kids to receive and I’m kind of picky about toys!

aqua and gold stenciled guest closet

stenciled guest closet

I have to admit- ever since I saw a wallpapered closet at Belle Maison, I’ve been pining away for a wallpapered closet or two of my own. And then I remembered the fabulous wallpaper-esque stenciling I’ve seen floating around (1, 2, 3, 4 for example). Paint seems so much less of a commitment than wallpaper- […]

the new house, stage 1 (and a $100 Amex card giveaway from Bagster!)

new house demolition

I think that remodeling is a little bit like childbirth- because you only see the beautiful result of your toils, you forget what it took to get there. From the middle of the mess, I am here with a reminder that remodeling is WORK. Lots of hours of work. Not that fun work. And TONS […]
