Writing about style, design and all things that catch my eye!

Perfectly imperfect and casually luxe; these are a few of my favorite things.

Clover (always a lucky find in this children's shop)

Butterflies and bright clothes hanging out in the window display.

Since 2004, high on the list of stops for families in Ballard is Sarah Furstenberg's Clover. Featuring a delightful array of unique children's toys, games, books, attire *and* room decor, her shop is a tiny wonderland for kids and adults alike. Upon entering through the wide, heavy door with it's antique hardware and large, glass window, one instantly steps onto terra cotta tiles that quietly set the stage for a European feel. Glancing about, you'll soon notice that these items are hand picked for quality, durability, and most importantly-- that extra special, magical element that kids will be drawn to. Fueling imaginations is a specialty around here!

With Easter around the corner, I focused my camera on the clothes hanging in the window and in the furthest side room. There are plenty of choices here to dress the kidlets just right for that egg hunt that's mere days away (from infant on up to pre-school/early elementary school sizes). I couldn't help but take a few snaps of the tall bookcase, a stunning rug and a portion of the Easter window display though. All the other toys, games & art supplies are just waiting for you to come in and take a look at them though because...

 Don't you hear the hopping of the Easter Bunny who's getting closer to town?

How cute is this!! Tea camp shirt, plus a fedora for the boys. There are many other boy offerings though; head on out to Ballard and check them out.
A mix of brands-- mainly Catamini from France, and Tea of S.F.

Loops belts for the stylish, pint size guys and gals.

Handmade Hair Pins.
Find your favorite classics; plus, some new tales ripe for the picking.
The New York Review of Children's Books put out these must read, once forgotten classics.
I love the red binding and their historical style sketches. 
Dash & Albert wool area rug (4' x 6'). I couldn't resist rolling it out. 
Letting the Easter Bunny know where he can go to fill the area baskets!

Thanks to owner Sarah Furstenberg for all these years that I've been coming in with my kids and chatting away. It was fun taking pictures and writing about Clover, too.

For everyone reading, you should see the fairy house that my girl got here 4.5 yrs ago. It's magical! Maybe a 1 photo post is soon to come...
