For the wee ones!

Kids are coming to Sanctuary! After searching for just the perfect thing to debut, I found the cutest collection of toys, bags, and wee stools perfect for our favourite little ones.
Manufactured in morrocco, these adorable little gifts will make you want to be a kid again.

Cake Journal

Cupcakes are the chic way to go for weddings, showers, and after dinner desserts. While they are already so fabulous and fun... these wrappers just make them that much better. I cant wait to build a perfect little stand ( see below) for them. Kim... you know you are in heaven right now!

Skinny Skinny

I am loving skinnyskinny soaps, handmade in Brooklyn New York. They are 96% organic and made from extra-virgin oils, unrefined butters and essential oils. Sustainability is also important and allof the packaging is totally recycled or reclaimed. We have had the soaps ( rosemary mint is my favorite)... now be on the look out for the salts.

Mindy Weiss
