Well, thanks!

An astounding number of your have completed the Oliver + S survey, so thank you! Your information and suggestions have helped me to start planning the fall line, and I loved your comments! Very helpful and insightful. I really appreciate your help.


And you really loved the quilt trees! Since you asked, here's the back of the one I made. Amazingly, the back of Grandma Gabrielson's tree is identical to the front, and I'm still trying to figure that out. There must be a trick, and one of these days I'll sit down and determine just how it works.


Did you see this piece in the New York Times over the weekend? Sort of the antithesis of my own aesthetic and that of my two favorite kids stores, but an interesting concept.

  1. Just a quick delurk here. I love your blog and those excellent trees. Am a bit frightened by that pink display in the NYT piece, however!

  3. I can't wait to sew up some more Oliver and S! This is the year of friends having babies for me. And then the teaser of a fall line as well? It can only be good as well. :)

  5. I am also a fan of Enchanted Toys on the UES, if you ever get up there.

  6. Hey--I know you do a lot of hand sewing, but I am wondering if you have any good reccomendations for a beginner's sewing machine. I haven't been on one in at least ten years--but I think I want to sew my new baby on the way's bedding. Thoughts?

  7. Oh, the back is pretty, two.
    And that pink picture. Ouch. My teeth feel sore after just looking at that. Wait, there's a kid in the picture? I didn't see her. I'll have to look again. Yikes.

  8. I don't know why, but that picture makes me feel very sad. I haven't read the article (just stopping by for a quick visit) but it seems like the epitome of wanting everything, getting it, and not being happy. Maybe I'm totally missing the point, though. It's probably an article about pink. :)

  9. I so love the tree, you've inspired me to make one of my own. I spend last night cutting out the pieces.

  10. You have to be the coolest parents around. I love "checking in" with you all and appreciate your sharing your lives and creativity on your blog. Thanks, too, for the link to kidonyc. I called about the white art supply storage unit pictured on their homepage and was blown away by the price. Have you seen anything like it anywhere else?
