Daisies are like sunshine to the ground.” – Drew Barrymore

Green Daisies - daughters

Jason and Julie's Daughters

Stop and smell the daisies???  Although daisies really don’t have a fragrance, the idea of saving some time is sweet!  When you need to find some really special children’s clothing for your little one, or a great children’s gift, save some time and visit our friends at www.Green-Daisies.com.  Jason and Julia Pugh, busy parents of two little girls ages 2 and 4, started their online store to give other on-the-go parents the opportunity to access all the amenities of a neighborhood boutique in the serenity of their own home.

Julia was sitting in her garden watching her daughters pick daisy after daisy and it occurred to her that daisies bring simple happiness to life.  The name Green Daisies seemed unique, and it reflected their goal of creating a store that offered an exceptional, high quality and pleasant shopping experience.  She understands that busy parents want outstanding customer service and high quality clothing, but browsing through stores is not always a simple task with little ones!

Julia and Jason love the location they have chosen to plant their family – a little town with a big name – Boulder, Colorado.  They encourage other outdoor-minded families to come and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Rocky Mountains, the wonderful hiking trails, or to participate in the largest annual 10K run in the country.

GreenDaisies_sig7Although Green-Daisies.com is only 7 months young – there seems to be a following that has developed, including some ‘anonymous’  and ‘not-so-anonymous’ celebrities – including Campbell Brown! I am sure Campbell would agree that time is of the essence when you are a working mother – and signing on to Green-Daisies.com is like having your neighborhood children’s store right in your own home!  Julia and Jason are attentive to the needs of your children, your privacy (including all those anonymous celeb’s out there!) and your time.

You can keep up with their daily happenings, newest items, and much more on their “neighborhood” social networking sites.  So come, Tweet, Facebook & Blog with Green-Daisies.com today!  Julia and Jason love the satisfaction of listening to suggestions from their customers, and to make Green Daisies a satisfying and rewarding shopping destination for busy parents.  Drop in for a “chat over the neighborhood fence” – and see the great le top styles featured on Green-Daisies.com!

TC’s favorite Sci-Fi star David Boreanaz (Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel – and currently starring on Bones) and his wife Jaime Bergman are expecting their second child in September. Their first child, son Jaden Rayne, is now 7.

Their happy announcement was revealed as an apology to fans, disappointed at his absence from the Comic-Con event last week that was scheduled to promote Bones. “I’m a little bit stuck in Los Angeles due to the fact that my wife is on her 34th week [of pregnancy with] our second child.” explains David in his video. “And I’d like you to know that it’s going to be a girl.”

countyfairEvery summer my family and I look forward to the County Fair. We love the rides, the shows, the animal races, the fireworks, and most especially THE FOOD! Corn dogs, cotton candy, snow cones, chocolate covered bananas, deep-fried Twinkies, and our family’s favorite… FUNNEL CAKES! We visit the fair at least three days per season. One day is devoted to getting there early, pigging out on all the food, watching animal races, riding a few rides, walking around to see the displays, seeing a concert, and staying late for the fireworks. (The two other days are to eat more fair food because it will be another year before we can consume such greasy, fatty goodness.)

This year was my son’s first time at the fair. He is only 3-months old, but we weren’t going to let his age stop us from enjoying this family tradition. Big Sister wanted to show him around to see why the county fair is so much fun. She took him to see a circus act and bought him his first clown nose. Daddy showed him every kind of food he bought before eating it so that he can admire the crazy shapes and sizes, such as footlong corn dogs and tornado potatoes. And I took him to his first rock concert: Night Ranger! I don’t know how much fun my son had or if he even understood what was going on, but we’ll be making sure he knows how important county fairs mean to this family.

Raise your hand if you think we are all “drama queens!”  Is this blog becoming a place for ‘true confessions’ or what?!  Not only have we admitted that we are hooked on reality television, but yes, (GASP!!!) we love our soaps as well! Although there are those at le•top who love GH (General Hospital) and One Life to Live, the classic Day’s of Our Lives stole our hearts a couple weeks ago!  Why? Well, it is NOT the convoluted details of the relationships – but…after E.J. married Nicole – they had a baby – Sydney – who had the panache to appear dressed in le•top Strawberry Fields – petal top and bloomer set!

The short version of this complicated storyline is that someone at DOL has a great sense of style! If you want all the juicy details, and to see what le•top outfit Sydney will be featured in next, catch Day’s on your local NBC channel!

No, I did NOT say that!

No, I did NOT say that!

Checking in on her daughter who is recently potty-trained, Mommy walked in the bathroom when her daughter abruptly said,

Mommy, I need my priva-seat.

Adornment is never anything except a reflection of the heart.”  ~Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel

Quinlin_Zoo_2948Children’s hearts – pure and innocent – are the inspiration for Le Top clothing.  The whimsical designs we create here bring smiles to our faces – but children cannot live on clothes alone…they must have shoes to go out in the world!  When preparing for our Fall 2009 photo shoot we looked around the market and came up with the idea of collaborating with a children’s shoe company, hopefully one with the same design esthetic as ours – the choice was easy, pediped™!  We love the shoes – and knew them first hand, since they had been the choice for many le•top and rabbitmoon outfits for Chris’s grandsons.  Anna Carpio (our Design Room manager and Technical Designer) planned everything with Penny Redlin and Lauren McGlynn at pediped™ footwear over the course of three months to find the perfect accompaniment to each outfit in our collection.  Anna says, “They were so easy to work with. They are very family-oriented like we are and have a fun, quality product. It was a pleasure working with them on this project.” 

For the current season each company will feature the other’s products in their catalogs and marketing materials. “It seemed a natural fit for pediped™ and le•top to share our collections with each other from a styling standpoint. Our collections complement each other well. I think that the result has been fantastic! Congratulations to le•top on another fabulous collection,” says Angela Edgeworth, co-founder and president of pediped™ footwear. Find the style that goes with your little ones outfit at www.pediped.com.
