It's always such a joy to be contacted by an indie shop who wants to carry our natural teething rattles, but when they're already familiar with them because their kiddos grew up chewing on them - that deserves a HURRAH!
This morning we're heading to the post with the first order for Cutie Pie Consigment in the beautiful city of Hood River along the Columbia Gorge on the Oregon side. They first discovered our teething rattles in Eugene where they lived until they purchased Cutie Pie last year. They have a wonderful following in their community and a newly remodeled shop that is getting rave reviews from their customers. We look forward to a visit one day and hope if you get up that way you stop in to say hello and shake some rattles!

I love the pic of my boots in the water - I'm standing in the middle of our hiking trail. Myrtle gets a hike every day around our land in Olalla Valley in SW Oregon. We have created paths that weave through the woods, pastures, along the creeks and up on the hill - over 2 miles in trails. Although the weather has been gorgeous for the past 2 weeks, prior to that we had some good solid Oregon rain. It came back last night, so we're back to growing moss between our toes.
