we finally went to check out smock - it was great going there during the day - so quiet, it's a cafe that serves lunch with a craft area for kids to create and play, it was nice sitting having a cappuccino with j and the kids occupied with something fun, also nice moms there to chat with. aside from the craft area lliam loved the lego column and the little reading nook and piper loved the small kitchen.
it's located on roncesvalles, they also do classes and workshops for kids - I'm sure we will be visiting often. if you're in the hood go check it out!


  1. i adore the paint all over her smock
    and it got me thinking
    of a custom apron smock made from one of your drop cloths :) :) :)

  2. What a great place for family time...your pictures capture the vibe so well. I think Margie has a good idea.

  3. That's such a cool concept! I love that first pic of P painting, she's such a beautiful girl! Just like her momma :-) Yes please! we all want aprons made of Bookhou dropcloths! Smart Margie ;-)

  4. Hi! We met on your visit :). My daughters legs are in the photo! Great meeting you...wow to your creations!! You are creating beautifully unique work.
    Much love and light, Nicole, Isla and Neva.
