Little Hip Squeaks

Little Hip Squeaks believes that kids are fun, and their clothes should be, too! Our aesthetic is for of bright colors and bold prints, with modern babies, tots and kiddos in mind. 

Juniper Wilde

Juniper Wilde began in 2010 when Owner and Designer Nicole VandenToorn gave birth to her first son. She was unable to find organic, eco-frientdy nursery decor that fit her own rustic/modern aesthetic. Being a trained designer it seemed only natural for her to take on the project herself. That's where is all began and from there a passion was born, soon to be followed by an Etsy shop! Nicole designs all of the fabrics for her collection and they are used exclusively for Juniper Wilde. All of the products are organic and the inks used in the printing process are non-toxic and eco-friendly, which makes Juniper Wilde items perfect for snuggling the style-savvy littles in our lives.


The whole Egg-A-Go-Go product line is painted, designed and printed by Sarah in Boston. From tiny watercolor paintings on clay to screenprinted clothing and from clever cards to cute postcard sets, Sarah hopes to make things that make people happy and to bring appreciation to small and often-overlooked wonders.

Busy Bonnie Bee

Busy Bonnie Bee grew like a magic mushroom out of my crafts and crafty works that had started to accumulate over the years. As my kids were born and grew, I enjoyed dressing them in this and that, and I'm still tickled when they wear my clothes or when someone compliments their clothing and it's something I've made. My philosophy of creating clothes and toys is to have fun and love what I am making.


I am a 34 years old, and I am very proud to say that I was the first one to bring crochet nursing items to Etsy. It was a fantastic creative process five years ago. My hobby and Etsy customers literally saved my life in 2011. I had to spend two weeks in the hospital and deliver my second daughter after six months of pregnancy. She didn't make it. I almost lost my life too. It was my Etsy shop that helped me to survive. I received orders and lovely feedback every day, so I just kept crocheting and my husband was my personal postman. And we made it. Day by day, our first daughter kept us busy as well and we are okay now.

I am working on an art deco collection for women and girls and hope to launch in 2014.

Happy Friday!

Ahoy! I'm thrilled to have reached the end of what seemed like a very VERY long week. Lucy has the sniffles and has been sneezing her paci out of her crib almost every hour on the hour, and I'm a bit of a zombie at this point. On a happier note, lots of fun things happening around here -
I'm currently prepping for a big holiday giveaway and gift guides to go up next week, getting ready for a family Christmas photo shoot, we've got a play to go to, breakfast with Santa, and a birthday party this weekend, and Lucy is sitting up on her own and army crawling a bit, so needless to say we've got a lot going on here at the H-Haus!

Here are some links that I'm loving on for your weekend enjoyment:

Have you seen Joanna's fabulous apartment makeover?! Emily Henderson can seriously do no wrong.

I'm using these lovely photos as inspiration for our family Christmas photos we're having taken at the end of the month, and collecting more on my Winter Wonderland Pinterest board.

Such a refreshing post from Nicole.

This kind of makes me sad - Thanksgiving dinner in a tent in front of Best Buy?! But I'm glad to hear some big retailers are letting their employees enjoy their Thanksgiving holiday.

The difference between parents and everyone else (made me cry I laughed so hard)!

A pretty print from one of our sponsors.

Me elsewhere - Thanksgiving ideas for kids and pretty DIY Advent Calendars (you can check out all of my posts for Apartment Therapy here)

Lucy will be wearing these adorable boots and this pretty little bow for our family photos, I'd love to get this hat for Violet (but I'm not sure she would keep it on), and either this dress or this one for myself.

If my washer and dryer weren't absolutely ancient I would totally do this!

A Thanksgiving garland and Thanksgiving table.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! xo, Lauren

Help Me Choose


I had a gift card to Saks (yippee!), and I decided to buy this pretty dress for Violet for Christmas. Now I'm hung up on the accessories - which tights would you choose?

1. Gold
2. Polka Dot
3. Bow
4. Tartan
5. Stripe

And aren't these pom shoes adorable?! I haven't bought them yet, but I'm considering them. Thanks for your help! xo, Lauren

P.S. Violet's picture with Santa from last year.

Favorite Parenting Links Lately


Love when mamas keep it real.

If  you're a parent, I think we've all been here.

It can be so hard to find a balance between keeping things consistent for your kids and having adventures. Love that Jen decided to go on one with her kiddos.

Tell a friend, "You are a good mama."

Not waiting for "someday".

P.S. Favorite parenting links from October and you can find me on Instagram here.

Plan Toys on Zulily


Can you tell I'm getting a lot of Christmas shopping done? Sorry for all of the toy shopping posts, but it's that time of year, and I love a sale! xo, Lauren

P.S. Here's my invite link to Zulily if you need one!

Lots of Goodies on Gilt

A Thanksgiving Kids' Table (Plus Free Printables!)

If you're looking to make something a little special for the kiddos this Thanksgiving, here's a fun and simple set up for you...
  1. Kraft paper makes a fun table cloth and bonus: the kids can color on it! Fill a jar, bag, or pouch with crayons and trust me, they'll figure it out :)
  2. Kids can write what they're thankful for on paper pennants and pin or tape them onto a mini tree. This one's from a season or two ago, but here's a similar one, or if you fill a vase with pebbles and use a few branches from your yard it would work just as well. 
3. These wood-veneered leaves give the table that special Fall feel. You could write kids' names on them and use them as place settings if you'd like.

4. Free printable place mats to add a fun dose of color. (download below!)

5. Wrap your plastic or wooden cutlery with washi tape to make them fun and festive.

6. Add a colorful garland in the background to add that party feel! 

And here are the printable place mats for you:

P.S. Don't forget to download our friendly paper dress up turkey to keep the little ones entertained!

A Euro-Inspired Kid's Room


I love European children's spaces - the way they seamlessly combine both modern and vintage pieces, pair playfulness with sophistication, and warm up clean white spaces with colorful accents and warm wood tones. Check out twenty of my favorite pieces to get the look in your own little one's room over at my ideabook on

P.S. A woosdy camp-inspired nursery and a colorful, happy kids' room.

Fun Fall Idea: Make a Leaf Turkey

We've been collecting a lot of leaves on our walks lately - the colors are so beautiful right now, it's the perfect time to create a fun Fall craft. There are so many choices, from pressing leaves between wax paper to making a garland or a leaf crown. With Thanksgiving coming up, we decided to make a turkey!

You'll need a variety of leaves - colors, shapes, and sizes, as well as scissors, paper, a black marker, and glue. Use your longer leaves for the turkey's tail feathers. On top of those glue your largest leaves. Finally, create the turkey's body and head with smaller leaves. For the head and beak you may have to trim a couple of smaller leaves with your scissors. Lastly, use stems for the legs and feet and draw dots for eyes with your marker. Glue it all down and press with books so that your leaves don't curl up as they dry (be careful that no glue is sticking out, as you don't want to glue your project to your books!) And voila!

If your kiddo is too little for this version of a turkey, maybe try this idea instead - use leaves for the tail feathers only and pre-cut paper shapes for the body and head. Happy leaf hunting! xo, Lauren

Christmas Forest Advent Calendar - Free Printable

We are trying to keep things fun and cheap here at the H-Haus this holiday season, so I decided to make our own advent calendar in lieu of buying a lot of decorations. It'll be a great display on a TV stand, console, or mantel and a fun activity for Violet (and someday for Lucy too!) I actually got the idea from some old paper party hats we had, but they weren't the right colors, so I decided to trace them and make my own version. Then we printed them out, decorated the "trees", and folded and taped everything together and voila! Cheap (and inexpensive) Christmas fun!

I've included the files for you all as a free printable as well, just download, print, decorate, and assemble - it's pretty self-explanatory but if you have any q's I'm happy to help! We used dot stickers (left over from our raid-your-craft-stash gift wrap last year) and a gold paint pen to decorate our trees, but you could leave them plain too and they'd look just as pretty. To put them together I used packing tape because it's a lot stronger than regular tape and easier to work with than glue. I printed some on a thick textured paper which looked really pretty - almost like watercolor, but I ran out and printed the rest on regular printer paper and that worked just fine as well. You can hide little gifts under each cone and in the packages, then lift up the cone on the appropriate day - easy peasy :) Downloads available after the jump!

Wooden Puzzle Maps

I came across this wooden puzzle map of the U.S. at The Land of Nod and I was seriously in love, but not with the price tag ($69). Since Violet's really into puzzles, and this would be a great way to help her understand where she lives in the world, I decided to look around and see if I could find something similar for less money, and I did. Turns out Etsy has a lot of great options, some higher and some lower in price. They would all make awesome gifts...

Favorite Holiday Cards 2013


We'll most likely be going with our usual holiday photo cards from Minted this year (it just seems expected when you have kids - all of the relatives want to see a cute picture)! But if I was going for a traditional card, I'd definitely choose one of these lovelies...

Clockwise from top left: Sir Rudolph, Reindeer, Letterpress Trees, Thumpety Thump Thump, Let it Snow, Secret Decoder Tree, Joy, Season's Greetings, O Christmas Tree, Deck the Halls

Halloween 2013

A Lovely Lark HalloweenI'm a little sad now that Halloween is over - even with all of the exciting holidays coming up, it's one of the few that we really celebrate at our own home with our friends and family. This year we had a pumpkin carving party with a few friends a few days before the big night - the Mister got to try out some really fun carving tools that were sent to us by Häagen-Dazs (you could attach the "pumpkin gutter" to your drill - craziness! I'll never use a wooden spoon again) along with some yummy munchies and various other paraphernalia. Violet chose the face - she wanted the "nice" classic jack o'lantern. I love having a kid to choose the face now, because I am sooo indecisive and could never choose what to carve on my pumpkin. Luckily HD also sent us a really cool fake remote-control candle, because Kev decided to to go Tim the Tool Man and clean Sharpie off of our jack o'lantern using kerosene. Yeah...sometimes fake is good. ;)

For most family events, we either go to my sister-in-law's or one of our parents' houses because our house is teeny tiny, but for trick or treating we have the best neighborhood! So we had all of our family over this year for Halloween night and it was a blast. We had a chili bar set up with a white chicken chili that I make (and amazingly that Kevin actually likes! Normally he's the cook in the family.) I wanted to get some pictures of it, but trying to get ready for a bunch of people to come over with two little ones, photos just didn't happen - at least not good ones. Maybe next year :) Most of us went trick-or-treating while my mom and dad hung back and gave out candy. Then we all came back home to check out the kids' loot, steal some of their chocolate, and watch The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and Garfield Halloween. It was a great night full of family and fun and food (and candy candy candy!) and I hope the tradition continues for many years to come. I feel like if and when we ever do move we need to find a neighborhood that is just as wonderful as our current one, if only for trick-or-treating purposes! 

And speaking of trick-or-treat, Violet had an amazing time - she ran from house to house trying to keep up with her older cousins, and although she had a few tumbles in the dark on our uneven old sidewalks with her not-so-practical-for-running shoes on, she was a trooper. She totally "got it" this year, saying "Twick or Tweet!" and "Sank you!" with so much enthusiasm at every house - it killed me. I was kind of sad when I had to go back a little early to feed Lucy and put her to sleep - holidays with kids are seriously so amazing. It's like being a kid all over again! Lucy was such an awesome big bad wolf - she's been making these hilarious faces lately, and it was just perfect for her costume, although Violet made it clear that she was a nice wolf. She said, "She's not weally going to eat me - it's just pwetend." Followed by, "And Daddy's not actually going to kill baby Luce with his axe (he was the woodsman), because then we wouldn't have a baby sistuh anymore, and I love my baby sistuh!" You wonder what goes through their little minds sometimes lol.

I have my mother-in-law to thank for Violet's adorable cape - she took some $1 red fabric I found at the Salvation Army and made it into something beautiful. Lucy's costume was a hot-glue-gun and felt special thrown together on the day of by yours truly :) Nothing like a little procrastination to get your glue gun going! 

Hope your Halloween was truly lovely! xo, Lauren

I have been chosen by Häagen-Dazs as an ambassador for their Moment for Me campaign. It's all about celebrating those little moments that you take for yourself, or even doing something you love with your loved ones - whether it's a hot cup of tea while your little ones are napping, carving pumpkins, or having a big bowl of homemade chili with your family. So I'll be sharing those types of moments here on A Lovely Lark as well as on my Instagram feed with the tag #HDmoment. We'd love for you to join in too - just tag your photos on social media and your moment may be shared by Häagen-Dazs!

Lucy Vivian - Six Months


So many fun things happening this month little one! Where do I begin? You love getting up into crawling position and rocking back and forth on your hands and knees, and you're even crawling backwards a bit! I can leave the room and when I come back in, you're almost always in a completely different spot than where I left you :) You've gotten better at falling asleep on your own (sometimes without any crying!), and the night waking has gotten less for the most part. Some nights you even sleep through the night (few and far between, but I'll take whatever I can get!) You absolutely adore your big sister - she never fails to make you smile, and you've been making the funniest sounds and cutest faces. You make me laugh every single day with your antics.

We've also started on solids! We're doing a combination of purees and actual real person food. Your favorite purees so far are carrots, prunes, and mangoes, and your arch nemesis seems to be pureed peas. I don't blame you - they look pretty disgusting. As far as real person food, you seem to like most everything I give you. So far you've sampled apples, asparagus, carrots, potatoes, avocado, green beans, chicken, and pork. You're also sitting up on your own, although mama keeps a close watch because you're still pretty wobbly!

Our biggest issue this month has been the dreaded numero dos - I guess all of that new food we're putting into your belly is causing some issues! While we're still nursing like champs, mama has started supplementing before bedtime with a small bottle of formula, because you always seem so unsatisfied when I try to put you down. It seems to be doing the trick - after a few extra ounces your tummy is nice and full and you go right to sleep. You're still our happy, smiley, curious girl and we love you to pieces! Happy half birthday baby! xo, Mommy, Daddy, and Violet

And here are months one through six...

Gobble Gobble - Free Printable

If you want a little (free) Thanksgiving fun for your little one, I've got you covered :) Created this little turkey friend for Violet and thought I'd share it as a free printable. It could be a great way to keep little ones entertained at the kids table on Thanksgiving, no? I actually had to create a whole extra page of clothing/accessories after I showed it to her because there wasn't enough "princess stuff" :)

Print it on thick card stock or magnetic paper if you want to use it like the haunted house printable. Dress him (or her) up however you'd like!

Just right click or drag to your desktop and then print it out! Easy peasy. xo, Lauren
