Yep that's right we've had some big transformation happening around here.

After only about 5-6 days we had 5 shiny chrysalids on the lid of our caterpillar cup. 


This morning we carefully moved them to their happy habitat. They now reside in the front window of the store. If you are passing by be sure to peek in and check on them. They won't be chrysalids for long, pretty soon we'll have 5 pretty butterflies flying about this place.


Patiently waiting for our babies to hatch.

Butterfly Garden

Jul 25, 2012

We've got something fun brewing in the store.

We have Butterfly Gardens for sale ($20 each), but as there weren't too many takers in the spring and early summer purchasing these kits we decided we'd get this one for ourselves and hatch some beauty right in the store. 

Our caterpillars arrived in the mail just a couple of days ago and they were this teeny...


4 days later...


Look at how huge they are!


Stay tuned.


Organic Cotton Fruits & Veggies

Jul 22, 2012


We just restocked all of our Under the Nile organic cotton fruits and vegetables.  They are small, soft, and sweet, making them ideal for babies as they practice grabbing things.  


Also, since they are made of 100% organically grown cotton, you don't have to worry about exposing your baby to any chemicals if they chew on them.   We love dipping just the tips of ours in water or chamomile tea, putting them in the freezer overnight, then letting our baby gnaw away to help with teething pain.

Haven Belle

Jul 16, 2012

We have a sweet friend that is battling something big and mean!


We just got a handful of bracelets delivered to our door this morning and they are $5.00 each. If you purchase one the funds go directly into Haven Belle's medical account. They are on our front counter and we prefer you pay with cash or a check if you get one. You'll be helping someone very special and sweet.


And, she and her family appreciate the love. If you want to check up on Haven Belle or donate to her medical account you can follow the links. Otherwise - let's get some Missoulians sporting some of these sweet bracelets - come get yours at Walking Stick today!


Gus and Simon have theirs!

Christmas in July!

Jul 12, 2012

Mark your calendars & call to reserve your space.


We are celebrating Christmas in July. Everyone really wishes, come December, that they'd started their Christmas crafting in we're doing it! We are sewing wool felt ornaments on July 21st to hang from our hot hot Christmas Tree. If you are 5 and older we'd love to have you join us. Parents are encouraged to stay with their kids for the class. 

We are going to be sewing wool felt into dangling delights for your holiday tree, or maybe just for your fruit tree. Class is at 2pm and we have air conditioning and cookies to share. Call 406-543-1179 to reserve your space or message us on Facebook

Underwear Calendar

Jul 07, 2012

Did I get your attention? 


We have some hand-crafted upcycled undies for kids sizes 2-8 in the store. A sweet Mama that lives right here in Montana made them for us and she decided our shop was the place for them to be. I think you'll all agree once you get your mits on them. 

As for the Calendar portion - remember that Calendar of Color we posted about a while back...well it has grown significantly as we are now in our 7th month of the year (how can that even be?). Erin and Willa selected some red wooden beads for July and it is looking more and more attractive as the year advances. If you want to see it in person come by our little shop, if you can't do so, here is a little sneak peek. 


Happy Sunshine-Filled Day!
