And welcome back to:
LilaKids : …and a little something for you too!
As a Waldorf mom I enjoy bringing beauty to functional objects. Everything I sew in my shop, from aprons to pencil cases to pillow covers, is made one at a time. I don’t cut corners (except literally, with very sharp scissors), and I set a very high bar for the quality of my craftmanship. Most of the gorgeous fabrics I use are silk-screened by hand at an old fashioned family-owned textile mill in my town. Figuring out what to make with a particular design and choosing how best to set it off with other patterns is a real joy for me. I hope you love your purchases as much as I love sewing them!
And thank you to our returning sponsors:
.: Earnest Efforts: Natural Woodworking
Every teething rattle, box, spirit shaker and barrette we (the husband & wife team known as Earnie & Ellie Efforts) create is handcrafted as a functional and artistic object using found or sustainably harvested woods of Oregon. We were born artists and children of Mother Earth and we honor and praise her in our mission to create the treasures that we share with you and those you love.
.: Timberwolf Farm
Inge and Wolf are operating Timberwolf Farm, a small homestead in Oregon situated in the foot hills of the Cascade Mountains. They are keeping sheep and two alpacas for the sole purpose of transforming their wool and fiber into beautiful yarns, needle-felting wool and finished items like hats, trivets, scarves and more. All dyeing is done by Inge on the farm using dyes from homegrown plants and environmentally friendly acid dyes (Greener Shades brand). Inge is also making dollhouse miniatures using a variety of techniques.

.: Little Red Barn Produce
Little Red Barn Produce was born out of my love for gardening and wanting to grow good food to help feed my large family. However, I always grew too much! So, in order to find a way to both provide my family with healthy, naturally grown, fresh food, and to make the best use of our resources, I started Little Red barn Produce. I sell my produce on Lanelocalfoods.com, and at the Veneta Downtown Farmers Market. In addition we also provide weekly produce boxes. And yes, we do deliver! (=
Beautiful goods that celebrate imagination and nature. Hand-dyed playsilks, organic flannel & silk blankets, and more.
.:SO Awesome : Modern, durable, irresistible wallet-sized card sets for awesome kids!
Inspired by her twin boys, Momma and graphic designer Marie-Claire Camp created educational, wallet-sized card sets to help her small children (and now yours) understand the world around them. Montessori-infused, spit-proof and approved for all ages and stages, these cards are a perfect addition to home classrooms and a welcome companion on voyages outside the home.
