Greta is growing like a weed. I mean, she has been for four years straight (!!) but it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Always growing means always eating and I am always in the kitchen making something for her. I had this idea to make her a snack bin for our pantry so she can get something to munch on by herself.
I just covered an old popcorn tin with a chalkboard label, similar to the ones I used for Faye’s nursery baskets, and put it at Greta’s level in the pantry. She likes to have a say in what she eats, so I keep it stocked with a lot of different sweet and savory options so she can pick whatever she wants.
The NatureBox snacks are great because they are all healthy (No High Fructose Corn Syrup, No Partially Hydrogenated Oils, No Trans Fats, No Artificial Sweeteners, No Artificial Flavors, No Artificial Colors) and even though she always goes for the fruit chews first, she seems to enjoy the other ones, too! As soon as we receive our monthly delivery, I divide them into small snack bags. Each bag has 3-5 servings in it, but I usually get at least 5-6 servings from each bag for Greta’s snack bin.
I keep an eye out for what goes the fastest (the carrot strawberry fruit chews and the salted caramel pretzel pops this month!) and what lingers (the everything bagel stix were a hit with Chris and I, but Greta didn’t like them as much) and pick some new things for next month.
(Yes, Greta has been having “fun” with markers…again.) They whole system has been working so great! Greta can pick a snack whenever she wants, she doesn’t need to ask and I don’t feel guilty because I know she is snacking healthy. I think I am going to start one for the fridge with string cheese, yogurts and fresh fruit, too! Do you have a snack bin for your child? Or you? ;)

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Last week, Chris and I had the incredible opportunity to travel to London for work. We were invited by Williams Sonoma and William Morris and Co to preview their newest collaboration and the inspiration behind it.
