Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are starting the week on a positive note. This week, I am featuring a fantastic small business that I recently discovered, Willowee. This shop has the most adorable soft essentials for babies and toddlers. I love that my product came with a thank you note and coupon code for my next shopping trip, but what I love most is that the owner included a little message about small businesses. It stated, “When you buy from a small business, you are not helping a CEO buy a 3rd vacation home. You are helping a mom and dad put food on the table, pay the mortgage; a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy gets a jersey for his football team. Our customers are our shareholders and they are the ones we strive to make happy.” The message warmed my heart and made me thankful for small businesses where products are created on our home soil and helping families live out their dreams! I will pay a little more to support a company like this, and I hope that you will, too.
The product that I purchased and fell in love with is the natural teething ring. With my oldest child, I used the rubber teething toys filled with strange goop, but with Leighton, I wanted something more natural and, of course, pretty! The print pictured above is the natural teething ring in wild posy. The wooden ring is made from natural maple hardwood that had no chemicals or treatments added. It is hand-brushed in organic beeswax and olive oil to seal and prevent it from splintering. Cloth “ears” are made from 100% cotton and Pro-ECO bamboo fleece. My little one loves it when I wet the “ears” and pop it in the freezer! Best of all, the fabric can be removed and machine washed in cold water.
