ABC Personalized Rattles
toys are a favorite in my house, and our go to is Little Alouette. My daughter loves the Pyramid Stacker and the ABC Personalized Rattles make great gifts. I’m planning on getting the wooden sword for her when she’s old enough to know that taking jabs at the dog is just not cool. I feel comfortable letting her put the toys in her mouth, knowing they are made from natural wood and finished with organic flax seed oil. What’s even better is that Little Alouette was started by a mom and pop, so knowing what kids like is their forte.

There’s no such thing..
Apolis Market Bag $58
as too many reusable totes, in my opinion at least. Most of mine, maybe all of them actually have long handles and I’m liking the shorter leather straps (that are naturally dyed by the way) on this one. The Market Bag sold at Apolis is made from 100% natural golden jute fiber harvested in Bangladesh and has antique nickel hardware reinforcements. Seems really sturdy and way better than wasting a bunch of plastic (much like the water bottle from bobble).. handy for trips to the farmers market, or just the grocery store around the corner.
Keep it natural..
