Jord Wood Watches


Hand-crafted wood timepieces that tell a story. Start the conversation. That is the slogan for Jord Wood Watches. Isn’t it just fantastic. These watches truly are works art. They come in gorgeous wooden boxes that are themselves a work of art. The watch we received is stunning and it really does start conversations. Its not everyday that you see such a beautiful wooden watch that sits like a work of art upon your wrist. The watch itself is pretty light I was surprised at how it fits so comfortably (you can have them custom sized to your wrist). It comes with a scratch resistant mineral glass face, isn’t that just fantastic. I love that this company values sustainability and is so Eco-conscious and that they have shown it can be done with great efficiency. Where we live there is a strong eco movement, sustainability is expected and when you can make that eco friendly product not only consciously but fashionably its a win. And that’s what Jord Watches are they are a win. A win for the person who gets to where these beautiful watches and a win for our environment.
JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. We spend our days creating, considering, arguing, and hopefully agreeing. Then they scrap it all for the joy of starting new. They have fun. This is their journey. They are focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. They value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. They make their watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.

HABA Expedition Tent

Pretend Play is so important for children the creativity and problem solving that flourishes during pretend play extends into real world applications that promote confidence and positive social interactions. My children as well as the many children I have cared for have all absolutely adored pretend play in fact I have never met a child who does not in some way love using their imagination to extend play into something extraordinary. Play tents and forts can be great imagination starters and the HABA Expedition Tent is no exception. It is one of the largest play tents I have ever used. It is tall and its circumference gives plenty of room. My whole family and our dogs can fit inside. The kids love going inside and curling up with a book as well as creating elaborate stories and scenarios in which they are caring for injured animals, rescuing princesses and princes or just camping in the woods. There is no limit to their wonderful imagination and the plethora of creativity this tent exhumes.
The HABA Expedition Tent has created hours of entertainment in our home. It is so inviting and I just love watching my children getting along and working together to create lasting memories of adventures they create together. As for the setting up and taking down of this tent it is very simple and I am very happy to say that it stores very easily. It comes with a carrying case and folds small and flat which makes storing super simple. You can store it under a couch or in a closet. We have left it up because honestly the kids love it so much and it is so cute I have not felt the need to take it down.
This rugged, free-standing adventure-themed tent is the perfect addition to any child’s home. Measuring 75″ high and 59″ wide it provides ample play or relaxing space for you and your little ones. Go inside and read a book together, pretend it’s a cave or just sit and play a board game; either way this tent will be used over and over again. High quality printed and applique designs are complemented by an entrance that can be opened and secured with ties and a window on either side. The Expedition tent has two flexible support rings that can be twisted and folded into a neat space saving, storage tote. Pop the tent open, easily slide in the high quality support rods and plop the decorative cap on top and voila! Sewn of the finest cotton and polyester blends and mesh and free from harmful chemicals such as fire retardants, water repellents, BPA, PVC and phthalates.
