Dream job

Our neighborhood here in San Francisco is teeming with families and the accompanying stores full of kid stuff, especially clothes and toys. I spend a lot of time taking baby on long walks and window shopping. Last week I wandered into a lovely store called Speesees a few blocks from our apartment. Everything is organic and fair trade and I just love the design. I can't wait til Tilda is old enough to wear this:

Or these:

They had some stuffed toys too:

I got to chatting with the owner and designer who is also a painter. When she found our I illustrated children's books she exclaimed that was her dream job. Its funny how the grass is always greener. I love my job but designing kids clothes sounds like a dream job to me!

I know exactly what you mean! I was just sitting here thinking that owning an organic children's clothing boutique must be a dream job.

Those clothes are darling! My sister blessed the world with a little girl and a little boy and I'm having the hardest time not spoiling them rotten.

I hear you- it is hard not to buy every cute thing for a baby!
