Mom Monday {my clothes for Piper}


It has been such a gift that my mother kept some of my clothes from when I was a child. Ever since Piper was born my mother has been bringing age appropriate outfits that were mine as a child. It’s so much fun dressing Piper in some of these vintage treasures. Here is an outfit I thought I would share. The tank top (petit bateau) she has been wearing since she was one! It’s so soft, and I will be so sad when she grows out of it. And how adorable are the Jordache jeans?! Thanks mom! So grateful for these gifts.


Happy Birthday to My Princess!


I cannot believe it’s been 3 years since I held my baby girl in my arms for the first time! She is such a gift, such a blessing, and I am beyond grateful for my little fire cracker. She is about to start pre-school in a few months, becoming more and more independent, and has the most amazing imagination. She is at such a fun age and I am just trying to savor every minute. Happy Birthday Piper Marie!!


And a look back at the beginning.

Honest Company Shower Collaboration


About a month ago we had the honor of collaborating with The Honest Company and some amazing wedding vendors to create the ultimate baby shower inspired by a new Hippo pattern diaper Honest launched. It was such a fun project and working with Jeannie of Details Details is always a dream. Photograpby by Jessica Claire.


These were some of the different elements we created!


How fun to see it all in action!! The shower was graciously hosted by Honest Co. founder Jessica Alba.


The amazing dream team that put this gorgeous shower consisted of:

Mom Monday {BIRTH day presents}


With the excitement of a new baby coming into this world, so often the mom gets forgotten,  the presents for the tiny miracle come pouring in. But what about mom!? Whether a hospital birth, a birth center birth or a home birth, it’s so important to create a serene and comfortable environment for the mom. Here are a few of my favorite ideas for Birth day presents. Pick one up for a friend, or pack a bag full for yourself!


This aromatic, soy candle from The Honest Company creates the perfect calm environment.


A handmade one of a kind soft cashmere bunny from The Stitch Farm offers the perfect amount of comfort to mom.

Organic lip balm is a MUST! from The Honest Company.

A gorgeous silk Plum Pretty Sugar robe would be perfection don’t you think?

Or one of these luxurious and uber comfortable robes from Intimint.

And the ULTIMATE all in one “Hospital Box” from the one and only Hatch Collection…cashmere socks and all…wow!


Announcing the arrival of….


We are all over the moon excited about the arrival of Emily’s sweet baby girl, Haddie Aveline. Here are a few pics of our new addition to the Wiley Valentine family.


One of the most special things about when Haddie was born, is that she shares a birthday with Emily’s late beloved father. It just felt like such a gift to have them share this connection. The top photo above Emily wrapped sweet Haddie in one of her father’s old flannel shirts. So precious. Mom & baby are doing great! We are all smitten!!

Behind the Scenes {signature cocktail recipe}


At parties, and baby showers especially I really like to offer one signature cocktail giving guests the option of adding alcohol if they like. This keeps things simple, and keeps the guests that don’t drink in mind while still offering a great signature drink for all. For Emily’s baby shower we served a pale pink drink I dubbed “Baby’s blush tonic”. A mixture of pink lemonade, sparkling water and honey with a splash of gin for those that wanted a bit of a kick. The drinks were a huge hit!


We served the drinks in these great bottles, from Specialty Bottles.


The drinks were very simple to make and are absolutely delicous! I hope you enjoy! Cheers.

Mom Monday {The Stitch Farm}


This post is very dear to my heart. I am so proud to share with you this beautiful work from Barbara of The Stitch Farm, who also happens to be my amazing mother. The idea started for her when she wanted to make something for sweet Piper. She had a lot of old cashmere sweaters that were out of style, or had holes in them…and the idea for the Stitch Farm was born. She began by making these adorable bunnies, that are so soft and cuddly.


The collection has grown to include tiny piglets, gorgeous ballerina pillows made with vintage napkins. My personal favorite though is the Sentiment collection where you can send in your old sweater, or the sweater of a loved one, and she can custom create bunnies or pillows so you never have to part with that sweater.


These tiny piglets fit in the palm of your hand and are just about the cutest thing!


Her Signature Bunnies are so soft and adorable.


Her newest items are these gorgeous ballerina pillows made from vintage cashmere and vintage napkins! They would make the perfect addition to a little girls nursery or little girls room don’t you think!?


One of my favorite things about her creations is that each one arrives in a handmade pouch made from upcycled clothing or bedding!


You can see the entire Stitch Farm collection right here!
