"Wear it!" Wednesday

It's that time of the week again! Yep-- Thursday, the day I get around to posting our "Wear it!" Wednesday post.

Meet mega-cutie Amelie Jo! Amelie Jo is the daughter of Anna, who owns our newest online retailer Amelie Jo American Baby Boutique! Anna also recently blogged about our line! (:

Amelie's favorite animal is the family dog Hektor, who is a BEAUTIFUL German Shepherd. Her favorite food is organic blueberries and yogurt and she enjoys toddling around the coffee table. Her mother also reports that the darling Amelie Jo enjoying headbanging to Iron Maiden to her father's delight!

"Wear it!" Wednesday

Wow-- we are so very much delayed posting this as I (Kyle) am in the middle of a move to San Francisco! YIKES!

So I am happy to introduce the adorable Chase!

Chase's mom Michelle was kind enough to send us this adorable pic of Chase enjoying his Palms Tank. As natives of Florida, Chase & family were particularly fond of the Palms design!

Michelle reports that Chase loves todance and is a huge fan of Elmo and Yo Gabba Gabba!

We think he's totally stylin'!

You Know You Want to Help!!!

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble filling their quota of getting free food donated daily to abused and neglected animals. All it takes for you to help is to go to their website and click on the purple box that reads "Click here to give." It doesn't cost you anything more that a few seconds of your time as funding for food and care is paid by site sponsors and distributed to animals in need at the Fund for Animals' renowned animal sanctuaries, pet shelters supported by the Petfinder Foundation, North Shore Animal League, and other worthy animal care facilities supported by the Greatergood.org foundation.

Each click donates .6 bowls of food. Click! Click a lot!!


Tell everyone you know!!!
PS. That's Gus, Jodie's puppy. Who is way bigger than that now.

"Wear it!" Wednesday

That's right, Bubble is over and we are back to blogging on Wednesdays! In fact, get ready for multiple posts this week. Whoa, right?

This week's "Wear it!" Wednesday is all about little miss Ja'Naya here. This cutie is 4 years old and the daughter of Jennae, of Green Your Decor fame. Jennae recently created another incredible blog, Green & Gorgeous, which launched on Monday! Definitely swing by to check it out. If Green Your Decor is any indicator, we are certain its going to be a daily must-read.

We at barley & birch were of course thrilled to read Jennae's super sweet review of our Octi Tank posted today.

But, lets get back to Ja'Naya, shall we?

Ja'Naya's favorite colors are red and pink, and her favorite foods are spaghetti and friend plantains. Her favorite animals are Beluga whales (ever since seeing them at the Georgia Aquarium.) Now, I, too count Beluga whales among my favorite animals and manage to burst out into the Raffi song at any given moment from day to day.

Her mother also reports that Ja'Naya enjoys playing games on Webkinz and PBSkids, noting that she is surprisingly computer savvy for only being 4. Hmm, we wonder where she got that savviness from...

All we know is that this cutie has officially made the Octi tank look totally, well, Green & Gorgeous!

Thanks to Jennae and Ja'Naya for the picture!
