The beloved print Horses and Apples, pictured below, is now retired.
“Eighty percent of the diaperings in this nation are done with disposables. That comes to 18 BILLION diapers a year. Each one has an outer layer of waterproof polypropylene and an inner layer of fluff made from wood pulp plus super-slurper sodium polyacrylate that can hold a hundred times its weight in water.”
“Those 18 billion diapers add up to 82,000 tons of plastic a year and 1.3 million tons of wood pulp — 250,000 trees. After a few hours of active service these materials are trucked away, primarily to landfills, where they sit, neatly wrapped packages of excrement, entombed undegraded for several hundred years.”

“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
-William Morris 1834-1896
“Some are content to chew on the garrulous sounds of people chattering away, while others, to varying degrees, worry about what the words actually mean. To my ear speech and song are not mutually exclusive: there is music in speech, and speech in song.”

Sweet Puppy Love!
This oh so sweet puppy print was the inspiration behind the set. A Stinky Couture side snap fitted cloth diaper complimented by an Ann Claire Petit hand made designer pooch. The set has since been a favorite though the puppy print will soon be retired.
