How To Really Love a Child

We think that this is the recipe for a happy life.


Julie and Mimi xoxo


Be there. Say yes as often as possible. Let them bang on pots and pans. If they’re crabby, put them in water. If they’re unlovable, love yourself. Realize how important it is to be a child. Go to a movie theater in your pajamas. Read books out loud with joy. Invent pleasures together. Remember how really small they are. Giggle a lot. Surprise them. Say no when necessary. Teach feelings. Heal your own inner child. Learn about parenting. Hug trees together. Make loving safe. Bake a cake and eat it with no hands. Go find elephants and kiss them. Plan to build a rocketship. Imagine yourself magic. Make lots of forts with blankets. Let your angel fly. Reveal your own dreams. Search out the positive. Keep the gleam in your eye. Encourage silly. Plant licorice in your garden. Open up. Stop yelling. Express your love. A lot. Speak kindly. paint their tennis shoes. Handle with caring.

Children are miraculous.

tinycottons’ New Spring Collection is here!

This season tinycottons celebrates friendships, love, and art. The designs are gorgeous and the fabrics are exceptional. To find out how the new collection came about, read on. It’s inspiring and fun…just like the brand:

” We started this collection with a clear focus, FRIENDSHIP … from there we started searching for the perfect meaning or FRIENDSHIP expression. Dogs easily came to our minds, isn`t this the best expression for friendship? Isn`t this the most pure friendship, the man and the dog?

Since we admire deeply Yves Saint Laurent`s work, and he was in love with his dog MOUJIK, we brought their friendship on board. Paris during the 70`s, Yves Saint Laurent and his loyal friend, a little french bulldog. Inspired by this special relationship and moved by the unconditional love, we pay our own tiny tribute to friendship, love, and art.”

tinycottons‘ Barcelona based studio brings us a bit of  sunshine for our littles’ wardrobe! We promise, you will love the collection. Yves Saint Laurent’s best friend will become your kid’s best friend,

Julie and Mimi
