Q&A with new baby brand KinderStuff: “We have solved the problem that kids grow but clothes don’t”

The blocks are by Janod Toys: Kubix 40 Letters and Numbers Blocks ($25). Designed and manufactured in France for the past 40 years, [...]

Sunny days in the Bay

Kirby Cove, where have you been all my life? On Saturday some friends and I discovered our new favorite sunny day spot, just a quick drive across the Golden Gate Bridge followed by an easy one-mile hike.

A chat with Manimal founder Kristen Lombardi: On reuse, making miniatures and being a mom

  In 2004, Kristen Lombardi founded Manimal, her line of impeccably handcrafted moccasins and leather accessories. To hold one of her baby moccasins in your hand is to appreciate the skill and caring that goes into each piece — they’re perfectly formed, perfectly sturdy, and they’re lined with cushy faux fleece!

Also two years ago I first attended Alt, a mind-blowingly fantastic blogging conference in Salt Lake [...]
