During this white and wintery time of year, MP craves color. What a treat it was to discover the Wildflower Soup Etsy shop. Shop owner and Brunswick Mom, Tammy Johnson, makes dolls and colorful quilts that are sure to brighten anyone’s day. Take a look:

There’s not a parent in Maine that’s not familiar with the daily winter routine. Every morning, without fail, we’re ushering our children into warm socks, boots, mittens, scarves, snow pants, coats, and hats. Sometimes the routine goes smoothly, and sometimes well, not so much. And who could blame the kids for not wanting to get in full cold weather regalia? No child wants to feel like—what’s hilariously described in A Christmas Story—as a tick that’s about to go pop, right?
That’s why MP turns to great local Etsy shops like BabbidgePatch Hats. Shop owner Cathy Costa made CP#2 a Star Wars hat last season, and he looks forward to wearing it each day. Cathy makes beautiful knit hats adults and kids want to wear.

When our family is snowed in, there’s nothing MP enjoys more than baking. Post-holiday, however, MP wanted to make a healthy snack for us all. She turned towards an old favorite, a banana bread recipe pulled from the pages of a Betty Crocker cookbook MP and DP received for an engagement present years ago.
