Danish Designs by Maileg

New gift items for spring have been arriving almost every day. The first out of the box (literally) were these tiny creatures by the Danish company, Maileg. They have a wonderful collection of beautifully designed and crafted soft toys for children. These newborn twins come tucked away in their own sleeping bag with crocheted trim, all of which fits into their "matchbox" bed.

There are also wonderfully soft bears named Ted and Rose along with a tiny angel mouse complete with silver dotted wings.

A bit larger toy is the somewhat retro inspired owl with a removalbe mouse in its pocket. All of the toys can be found in the new Children's section of our online shop.

Maileg designs include more than children's toys with these flower and bird ornaments as well as spring inspired paper napkins. Blossoming branches will be coming in soon—a perfect display for these colorful creations.

Happy Christmas to All!

I've been spending a bit of time on etsy lately with my new vintage shop there and have come across this beautiful blog and shop. I thought it a wonderful way to sign off for the holidays. We are now taking a bit of a break and Sprout will reopen Tuesday, January 15. Wishing you a holiday filled with joy!

We have amaryllis bulbs planted in birch pots that make wonderful holiday gifts. This one is a deep pink called Hercules. I like the idea of decorating for Christmas using colors that are not quite as traditional—as seen here—but we have them in red as well. These are hefty bulbs that normally produce two stems with 4 blooms each and often last over a month so they're great for adding a splash of color throughout the holidays.

Tillandsia Orbs

Still looking for that unique gift—check out these tillandsia orbs. Tillandsia (aka air plants) are low maintenance plants requiring only a slight misting a couple times a week. They can be displayed separately or in multiples as the orbs are interlocking.

The plants come in a variety of shapes and shades of green. Tie on a bow and you have a beautiful living ornament.
