Today I decided to check out the new additions at Tea Collection. Their summer designs are full of fun colors, fresh designs, and classic construction.
Here are our summer favorites:
Daily Tea Star Flower Shirred Dress
Daily Tea Butterfly Tank Top
Kofu Grasshopper Tee

Check out the rest of their collection at teacollection.com.
One Step Ahead has come up with a mini-sized beach cabana ideal for baby's first summer at the beach. The tent includes mesh sides and a roof that is ventilated to maximize the summer airflow. For their protection, it has UPF 50+ protection and is designed to block 98% of UV rays. When nap time hits, you can roll down shades for extra privacy.
When it's time to pack up for the day, the tent easily folds up and comes with its own carry bag.
Currently $39.95 at One Step Ahead.
The pieces are full of rich colors, contrast stitching, and graphical designs inspired by nature. We're especially loving the animal onesies that are made for some major infant fun.
The entire collection is reasonably priced ranging from $15 - $40.
I'm totally loving this Somerset Shirtwaist Dress by Ses Petites Mains. The shirtwaist dress is two stylish pieces in one. It can be worn as a dress or over pants for a casual look. Normally priced at $72, discount priced at $49 during the sale.

Ahhh... summers by the ocean. There's just something about summertime by the water -- the smells, the sounds, the feeling. I just want to capture it for a moment and hold it tight. As a result, my kitchen is designed around just that feeling. I'm always on the lookout for great finds that capture that spirit.
I love this outdoor seafood sign that I discovered at Ballard Designs. The vintage inspired print was designed by contemporary artist BJ Schonberg to capture the spirit of mid-century advertising styles.
Available in two sizes and priced between $80 - $160.

Or if you are just a pickle fan or are looking for a great shower gift for a pickle fan, check out the "The Pregnancy Pack" from Rick's Pick. They are the perfect gift for the mom-to-be in need of a pickle fix. Each pack includes a jar of each of their four cucumber pickles: Kool Gherks (crunchy whole dills), Bee N Beez (bread-and-butter pickles), Spears of Influence (cumin-lime spears), and Slices of Life (classic sliced dills).

It's the boys first week of summer vacation and we've been busily working on outdoor projects. During our frontyard cleanup, I noticed that the peal-and-stick house numbers that were on the mailbox when we moved in had started to un-peal-and-stick. I decided it was time to replace them (and the mailbox too!)
In my search, I found these gorgeous numbers available at Design Within Reach.
The Industrial House Numbers were created by designer Erik Spiekermann with a very distinct, clean, aestetic and modern design. They were inspired by metal stencils where the numbers themselves are cut away from metal.
Currently on sale for $9.99 per number.

First up is a new release from Edward Hemingway (the grandson of Ernest). His new release is titled, Bump in the Night, in which a boy discovers that there is a fun-loving monster living under his bed.
Billy wakes up to a bump in the night and discovered a monster that loves yo-yos, horseback-riding, and all kinds of adventures. This great tale takes the scare out of the unknown monsters under the bed and brings some playful fun to bedtime monsters.
This great read hits shelves on June 19th.
