Inspired by >> Wild Horses

There is something so magical and special about running horses, their power, beauty and intensity is simply magical! They have inspired many artists through the years, and now a few of our favorite designers have taken the iconic horse and created some beautiful patterns and prints using various themes including abstract geometric, classic and folklore.

Shop horse inspired clothing and toys here:

Musicians and writers are also drawn to wild horses. Here are just a few of our favorite Wild Horse quotes (images via Pinterest).

 "In her dreams she rides wild horses." - Kenny Rogers

""Wild horses couldn't drag me away" - Rolling Stones

" I see the girl I want to be, riding bareback on the shore" - unknown

Summertime classic: Gingham

Gingham is the name of a classic style of checked fabric. Usually known to come in combinations of blue & white, red & white or black & white.

For such a simple fabric it sure does make a big impact, and is often reminiscent of summer days! Here little Raccoon is decked out in his gingham shirt, and a little girl somewhere is waiting to dress up in a matching shirt and leggings so they can go out for a day of wildflowers collecting!

Want more? Here are some more gingham print styles available in our shop!

A trip down memory lane with a Little Golden Book

Do you remember the Little Golden Books? They have tons of titles and this is the story of my absolute favorite one, "Where did the Baby Go?".

    

  


Thank you Etsy for the most amazing vintage items! I found my absolute favorite book as a child - "Where Did the Baby Go?" so I can now read it to my kids.
My baby was playing with my sun hat recently and I had a total flashback to this book and just to find it. I didn't know the book title just that was a Golden book imprint. The distinctive silver spine is how I remember finding it on my bookshelf when I wanted my mom to read it to me.
I showed it to my parents this weekend and they were so surprised! Brought them back to the early 80s with lots of happy memories.
So now I am marking this trip down memory lane with my favorite page in the book, my floppy hat, my baby quilt hand stiched by my grandma, and best of all my own little baby! Big brother liked the story but wasn't too interested in my photo project.

Interview on Baby Dot Dot

Read the interview with Tina Bar, owner of Wild Dill featured on the blog Baby Dot Dot!

The Interview


tina-bar-wild-dill-founder

BabyDotDot: Tell me about yourself.

Tina: My name is Tina and I am a mother of 2 little boys ages 5 and 10 months. We live in beautiful northern California just outside of San Francisco. I've always wanted to be a business owner and this little store is my dream come true.


wild-dill-rocker

BabyDotDot: How did Wild Dill start?

Tina: Wild Dill was actually launched in 2008 under a different owner. In 2014 I came across the store and was able to buy it from Jennifer and from then I've made a lot of changes to modernize and improve the shopping experience but have kept the core values of organic, fair trade and natural products for kids. I've also added new independent brands from all over the world and am expanding into accessories and jewelry for moms.

BabyDotDot: Where do you gather your inspiration?

Tina: I'm always inspired by my kids! I love watching them play and explore the world and seeing things through the eyes of a child is truly magical. I am also inspired by different cultures and the natural world. In my store I carry brands that have that touch of whimsy and a global perspective.


wild-dill-body-suite

BabyDotDot: What is your favorite part of contributing to the industry?

Tina: I am happy that I can support other small businesses and believe that together we can make a difference in letting women find new careers through handcrafts and fair trade products in their home countries, but also through supporting independent brands that create jobs for designers, photographers, small factories, and even farmers.

BabyDotDot: What do you love?

Tina: My kids and nature.


wild-dill-romper

BabyDotDot: What do you dislike?

Tina: Plastic and fast fashion


wild-dill-toys

BabyDotDot: What are you proud of?

Tina: Growing my business, and learning how to do everything myself from building a new website to customer service.


BabyDotDot: What motivate you?

Tina: The desire to always learn something new.


BabyDotDot: Which of your current creations that you like the most and why?

Tina: I have 2 favorite brands at the moment - Pebble makes the most amazing fair trade toys that give opportunity to disadvantaged women in Bangladesh. My baby is obsessed with the carrot rattle. The other brand that does really well in the store are the organic, made in USA line of clothing from Winter Water WaterFactory. Their prints are so cute and the clothes stand-up really well to washing.
