A Peter Pan Moment

There is something about a little girl (or big girl) in a peter pan collar that I am loving.  It’s so Audrey Hepburn inspired and sweet and vintage all the things that make a fashion moment great. Here a just a handful of all the lovely items I found on Etsy – all three I want to incorporate into my daughters wardrobe asap. At 4 years old her biggest fashion influence is Zooey Deschanel … actually Zooey and her music have been all she’s talked about since she was 2. I think all of these are very Zooeyesque and would meet me kiddo’s definite approval. Oh and Zooey if you are reading this – Sofia would like to invite you to her birthday party.

Just in Time for the Holidays


My daughter is going through a “horse” phase that most little girls go through, so I was doing a little search on Etsy for ideas for Christmas when this little guy popped up. Why settle for an imitation when you can give your child the almost well kinda sorta real thing? WTF in all caps with a whisper yell because I don’t want to wake my kid up! I have been oddly obsessed with this guy ever since I stumbled across it. I’ve shared him with co-workers hoping someone would say “wow that’s pretty freaking awesome” and then I can breathe a big whopping PHEW someone out their finds this awesome and will take him home. Okay I just realized I have been rambling and you all are probably like WTF is she talking about? THIS IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT VERY LOUDLY IN MY OWN HEAD:

This is one amazing horse. It is a child’s toy and made from real animal skin. The skin is very soft and appears to be in great shape for the age. He has stitching along the stomach and the inner legs. He is a black and white color with a brown tail which I’m pretty sure is horse hair. His ears are intact and his reins are in great shape with tiny, little nails to keep them in place. The most wear I see is on the nose of the horse.
This is a truly wonderful toy and very rare.
He measures 8 inches long and 8.5 inches from head to toe.
Please don’t hesitate to ask me questions. I will do my best to answer.

Oh I definitely have some questions like how much therapy would a kid actually require after being gifted a gift a toy horse made of REAL ANIMAL SKIN?!? Thanks Mommy a real dead toy horse just what I meant when I asked you guys for a PONY! I am probably going to get all sorts of emails about this rant – but really c’mon how could I keep this find all to myself? And for the price of $625 this little guy is a steal. Is it just me or does he/she have a bit of crazy behind the eyes?

I cannot say enough about the importance of music in a young child’s life and Anya does it better than anyone by introducing kids to different genres from all over world.
