Fill Your Pockets Up With Fun


Pockets are secret hideaways for treasured toys. Little pouches that safely carry happiness and joy along for every ride. Watch a child play with them and you'll see that for them, pockets are full of possibility and hope.

You're never Too Old To Enjoy Playsilks! Stylist:Katie


Playsilks play in mysterious ways...we know this is true. One minute the kids are playing with them, the next minute we find ourselves playing and imagining all the things each silk might do. You can imagine how happy we are when we learn that we're not the only "older" kids playing with silks.

My friend, Carol, told me for years how her daughter, Katie, enjoys playsilks. I decided it was time to get to the heart of the matter and talk with Katie myself.

Celebrating Chinese New Year in the U.S.

Wonderful China

Here's my suggestions for taking part in this many thousand year tradition:

Discover the Magic Inside Your Child's DIY Fort!


If you've ever built your own secret hideaway, then you can certainly remember all the fun it delivered. It was more than just a place where you could snuggle up inside. There were secrets shared and mysteries solved, stories hatched and dreams declared.



In 2012 we resolve to:

  • play more
  • build forts
  • create seasonal nature tables
  • dress to please ourselves (in silk, wool, cotton, and linen) 

Celebrating Advent


My nice red rosy apple, has a secret all unseen...

"Advent, advent a candle burns

First one, then two, then three then four

Their stands the child outside the door."

We light our candles adding one each week. The children put little shells and bones on week one, around the candles.

Week two they add some greens and other plant life found in our yard.
