New: Wall Tiles

I had a brief but intense flirtation with Harvey before Oscar caught my eye. And then George. But in the end Henry won my heart. Dreaming of baby names was my absolute favourite pregnancy activity. (If we're not counting double toasted bagels.) I know I'm not alone. Every baby's name is special, and the result of happy hours spent daydreaming and pondering and, probably, a little bit of negotiating too. Then one just fits. And you know you've got it right.

Brand-spanking new to the shop this week are these cutie personalized tiles. Birth Day tiles include baby's name, height and weight; Baptism tiles commemorate this special day. Both make a rather precious gift that becomes a keepsake down the road. Name tiles come in a ton of really cute designs, and would be such a lovely gift to celebrate the arrival of a sibling or moving into a big boy or girl bedroom.

The tiles are handmade in the USA by a husband and wife design team. Southern California natives Charlie and Kathleen traded in sun and surf for an East Coast community complete with Amish buggies and small town parades. The original designs are inspired by vintage fabrics, Kathleen's doodles and the pair's two young daughters. Sweet.

Now through the 19th of May the tiles are at an introductory price of $36.80. Check them out here.
