Baby It’s Cold Outside

Baby It’s Cold Outside

In Vermont today it’s 10 degrees and going down.

I like to include as song for your listening pleasure while you read. I’ve heard about 12 versions this year, this is a favorite: Baby It’s Cold Outside

Every year at this time the same thing happens.

First of all it gets cold. Baby It’s Cold Outside!

I don’t know why I feel shocked by this: I’ve lived in Vermont for almost twenty years, and although that doesn’t make me a Vermonter, I shouldn’t have that surprised doe in the headlights feeling every time it happens. (Sadly, I’ll never really be considered a Vermonter. Even my daughter who was born here is not really considered a Vermonter because, as I have been repeatedly told over the years: just because a cat has kittens in the oven, it doesn’t make them muffins)

Second, every year I’m thinking I have plenty of time and then all of the sudden Christmas is almost here and I feel totally not ready. My cookies aren’t made, I’ve done very little shopping, the stocking stuffer dilemma is looming and my customers are clamoring for special orders. No matter how well I think I planned for the season there is always that one item that everyone wants and I struggle to keep in stock.

Royal Blue Fleece VestThis season has been year of the vest at boysenberry. I have sewing them madly the last couple of weeks, struggling to keep any in stock. I spent the last few days cranking them out and have a pretty good stock ready for this week, which is usually my biggest sales week of the year.

Popular colors have been the jewel tones: Deep Red, Royal Blue, and Ultra Violet. The cooler Ice Blue, Teal, and Lime green a close second. See All Vests

 

Fleece Hats: 7 SiblingsIce Blue and Teal FleeceThis year I also made color matching hats for all the vests, as well as buntings in most of the same colors. I have been so enjoying the splash of color in my line this season.

Looking forward to this busy week, it always ends up to be so much fun to help all of you fill your Christmas giving needs.

As always, peace, Beth

 

Winter Baby Gift Ideas

Welcome to the world winter baby!

4flakesIRA1-150x69

I love to see them all bundled up when all you can see is a sweet little pink face, big blue eyes and chubby cheeks peeking out among all winter baby wear. There is nothing sweeter then a baby and a baby in softy fleece is even better.

 

I’m a winter baby and I was thinking there must be ton information out there on the topic of winter baby so I searched around and of course there is no lack of info on the subject. I found an article on Lumosity.com that made me particularly happy about how winter babies are smarter than summer babies that sites a study that “found that winter babies (born in winter and spring) were on average both bigger and brighter than their summer (born in summer and fall) counterparts.” (See Article) I might also add that my mother has reminded me many times over the years that, (at a whopping 7 LBS 4OZ), I was her biggest baby. She never tells me that I’m the smart one but I think that it goes without saying. So while you are putting on all those winter warm up layers, just tell yourself it’s adding to the brain activity of baby.

 

Fleece Baby BuntingA specialty of boysenberry is clothing for a winter baby.
A winter baby can be particularly troubling for a new mom because of worries about the cold and I like to think I am helping to relieve some of this worry by offering warm cozy clothing as well as adding a unique flair and fun colorful choices for winter cheer. Buntings.
One of things I’m proud to say about boysenberry is each of my pieces is hand cut and sewn individually in the studio in the store and these days made in American clothing is a little hard to come by. I use only Polartec® fleece because of its incredible high quality, amazing choice of colors and, I’m so happy to say, it is also made in the USA. I probably shouldn’t say this but these are heirloom pieces for future babies. I know that the quality of the Polartec® Fleece is such that it can be passed down and still look great.

 

Blanket Hat and Blanket gift set Using this wonderful fabric I’ve created a line of warm, fun and, as always, colorful winter wear for babies. Our buntings, hats and blankets colors all coordinate with each other and use the same high quality fleece.
The Primary Colors gift set is a particularly good choice if you are giving a gift when the gender of the baby is yet unknown and a lot of parent prefer to dress the baby is clothing other then pink or blue. All our buntings, hats and blankets colors coordinate with each other and use the same high quality fleece. So mix and match and be sure that your choices will look great together!

Take joy in your winter gift of a new baby! and once again:

Welcome to the world winter baby!

Peace, Beth
