MP spotted these sweet, applesauce and cinnamon ornaments on Katy Elliott’s wonderful blog last year (proof how long it takes MP to get to things). The beauty of this project is its welcome ease. All you need is applesauce, $1 store ground cinnamon, and some baker’s twine or string.

While at the SEA Holiday Art Sale in Portland last weekend, MP had the pleasure of shopping Yarn & Cloth Clothiers. Owner Melissa Sailer, a mother of two boys and talented textile designer, creates beautiful children’s clothing using vintage inspired fabrics, fun patterns, and vibrant colors.

MP was thrilled to discover Yarn & Cloth clothing and accessories. Melissa’s super cute buffalo plaid skirt is perfect for the holidays.

A fun skirt to wear with leggings or tights.

Last week, we posted about a new, family-friendly restaurant in Yarmouth called Gather. One of the things we appreciated about Gather was the play area, as well as the knowledgeable waitress who sat us right next to the toys and games. While we were there, we discovered a wooden barn that belonged to owner Matt Chappell when he was a boy. MP started to think about how cool it would be for the kids to have a keepsake barn of their own.

Enter Finns & Flowers. The Palermo, ME-based toy company makes lovely wooden and felted toys. Their classic New England barn, made of Northern White Pine, is perfect for little kids with big imaginations.
