WINNIPEG Hochbett 4.1

We celebrated the unexpected (to us) public holiday last Friday, May Day in Germany when absolutely everything is closed. The three day weekend allowed us to visit northern Germany and enjoy the picturesque scenery plus all the colorfully decorated May Poles.

Now, back to our mission of finding what’s new and exciting for kids. Take a look these winners –  German Adventure Beds that will grow with your child from first big bed to college loft. The accessories make these not only beds for dreaming, but most definitely in a child’s eyes, dream beds. Add a slide, swinging rope, crane, hammock, ships steering wheel and more.

GRAN CANYON bunk bed

Clever and crazy fun beds offering space for four lucky kids.

Hochbett weiß

Ahoy mateys, this could be your next treasure.

MONTEREY Etagenbett 1

WINNIPEG loft bed 4.8

Always a princess – she deserves her own castle with storage and work space under the loft.

These adventure beds not only help to develop the mental and physical abilities of children but are child friendly and durable.

Stay tuned as we add more findings from the land of innovation.

Seed Hearts

Not too long ago we were thinking of the winter birds and seeds. Now, with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, seeds blended into heart shapes for friends and family will be a Science Saturday project for the kiddos. We will see if ours turn out as pretty as the inspirational hearts from Hill City Bride. She used them for wedding favors and has a beautiful tutorial.

Seed Bombs

Jamie from Dabbles and Babbles makes these Valentine Seed Bombs that we will attempt making one of these days. Our friends in southern states will be able to plant them weeks before the snow melts here in Minnesota. We will be forced to wait until May for our plantings. But until then, they will provide decoration in a glass vase reminding of future springtime days filled sunshine and summer flowers. Hop on over to Dabbles and Babbles and learn how to create your own Heart Shaped Seed Bombs.

Hope that you give these a try!

London Bus        Little Ben

While in England on a trends tour we found these icons, Big Ben wall decor and the Double Decker Bus Bunk  Beds. We are constantly searching for unique beds and accessories for kids. Here are just a few of our British discoveries. Currently the beds are not available for sale in the United States, but we are working on changing that.


Caravan Bed


Beefeater wall decor ready to guard your bedroom.

Camper Van

Set up for sleep and dreams of the surf.


Scallywags Loft Bed


Black BMW Bed – We enjoyed driving a-“round” in a sporty Vauxhall while remembering to drive on the left and learning to embrace roundabouts.

Map of London

Beginning  with a good map rather than driving around in circles (roundabouts) would have been wise. This one however is made to hang on your wall

Candy Cane Hearts

Our Christmas decorations are now all neatly packed away for another year. Once again there was a little over zealous purchasing in the candy cane department. What to do with slightly over a dozen of those peppermint-y seasonal sweet sticks?

Sprinkle Some Sunshine has a “sweet” pictorial on how to upcycle candy canes if you too have some left overs. All you need are of course the candy canes, 6″ lollipop sticks
1 cup white candy coating, like CandiQuik and sprinkles. Another Recipe for Fun.

Birdseed House

This time of year we always like to think of our fine feathered friends living out in the cold.

Mary, at Home Is Where the Boat Is, inspired our plans for National Bird Day next week on January 5th. Our bird neighbors will be getting this Gingerbread House built especially for them to celebrate the new year in style. Pop on over to her blog for the blueprints.

Bird Food

A few years back we surprised the birds with these easy to create treats. Join us Celebrate Celebrate with Your Fine Feathered Friends

For some this day is bitter sweet. Ross, our customer care manager, tuned in his car radio to disappointment this morning. No Christmas music, it is over and so are the tunes. Personally, spending the long holiday season deep in retail, today is one that brings a sigh of relief, “it is over!”

For our friends to the north of us in Canada and those across the pond it’s Boxing Day.

Boxing Day is a holiday in the United Kingdom and many countries (including Canada) that were once part of the British Empire. The origin of this holiday’s name is not clear. In feudal times in the United Kingdom, the lord of the manor would ‘pay’ people who worked on his land in the past year with boxes of practical goods, such as agricultural tools, food and cloth. These were often distributed on the day after Christmas Day. More recently, employers traditionally gave their servants a gift of money or food in a small box on the day after Christmas Day. Some people in Canada still give gifts to people who provide them with services.

Other stories relate to servants being allowed to take a portion of the food left over from the Christmas celebrations in a box to their families and the distribution of alms from the church collection boxes to poor parishioners. These traditions evolved into the Christmas baskets that some employers distribute to their employees during the holiday season at the end of the year.

So, if you did not get enough Christmas, or experienced too much of it, hopefully you will be wrapping up Christmas on a happy note.
