Merrilee Liddiard  Crafting a Playful Life. Share how you #playcreatively | @merrileeliddiardshop

Psst psst...Did you see the stellar sneak peak of the next #mermagxgathre collab mat? Launching next Tuesday friends. ✨ 💫 🌟

It’s been so fun seeing how you are styling your @iralovesmae + @mer_mag Velma dresses. The removable scarf can be tied in your hair, tied in a bow or draping down as shown here. Which way would you style it? #iralovesmaexmermag

Another simple, easy to make, costume I created for the @betterhomesandgardens Halloween issue - out now. And I know a little miss in our house that is obsessed with the sparkles on this one ✨. #mermagcostumes #mermaghalloween PC @nicolegerulat

Bruised knees and always daydreaming, just like her mamma. And our favorite shoes for school (much like the ones I wore as a schoolgirl) by @mrugala.

What are the little vignettes of childhood that you’re going to miss? Little visions of tossed shoes on the floor? dancing kids twirling until their spins become apparitions in your home reminding you of what came before? Trying to be more present and hold onto these dissipating scenes of early childhood as long as possible. #babyturns6nextmonth #mrugala

We’re live friends! ‘Of Land and Sea’ a mini collaborative collection with @iralovesmae x @mer_mag is available now.

"Whenever children say "let's pretend", a new landscape of possibilities for learning is revealed. When children pretend, they try on new feelings, roles and ideas. They stretch their minds along with their imaginations". -Curtis & Carter

🍂‘Of Land and Sea’ 🍂collaborative collection with @mer_mag + @iralovesmae launches tomorrow at 10 am mst time. • •
These Orson dungarees were designed and inspired after my great grandfather Theras Orson Allred. He was a lover of music, opera and plays. He raised my grandfather with the notion that fun and play were not trivial things, but important ways to live life to the fullest. Consequently my grandfather was always at the ready to add jolly to every family event and never too tired to play pretend with his grandkids. The Orson dungarees are so soft - and have pockets! - making them the perfect piece for play. 🍂 Oh and a little birdie told me about a giveaway going on over at @iralovesmae 🍂 #iralovesmaexmermag

Can. Not. Wait. For this years season of tricks and treats! If you run by a newsstand pick up the October issue of @betterhomesandgardens and you’ll find 5 diy costumes i made (with templates so you can easily make them too!). Like this sweet little 🐭. And could this babe be any cuter? #mermagcostumes #mermaghalloween

Beautiful moment on #thebanisterhouse stairs from the @finandvince fall line. (Friends it’s so good!). Shot by @_beckykimball

the Velma dress (with matching doll dress!) and the Orson dungarees for the mini ‘of Land and Sea’ collection with @iralovesmae, launching sept 12. Both pieces are named after grandparents. See pics in stories.

Velma is my grandmother who I feel a strong kinship with. She was a painter and creator. She made a life for my father and his siblings in rural Boulder, CO - building their mid century dream home from the ground up - all by reading books. (I so wish I owned their home now!). She cultivated art and creativity and a strong sense of DIY in her home. Each of the kids rooms had loft beds hung from the ceiling. We loved climbing up into them as kids. I was in awe her, her paints, her clothing and her home as a child. And I love that this Velma sailor dress is a tribute to her. #iralovesmaexmermag

Quiet afternoons. So glad we put off full day kinder. Next year she’ll be more than ready for more than half day but this year we both love having each other around a little bit longer. •

Love this dress my friend @houselarsbuilt created with @winterwaterfactory. Prettiest print. Milla loved finding all the bugs 🐜 on it. #larsforwwf

My little dreamer. Any tips on helping restless kids love reading more? One good thing is that when he does read he gives me a play-by-play of Every. Single. Thing. That happens. ☺️ Pretty adorable - Especially because it’s been hard for him sit still long enough to read. Would love any ideas 🍂

And these dungarees, inspired by life and play on land, (and my great grandfather Theras Orson) are a new fav for both Oliver and Milla. (And Milla our texture police, gives the the extra soft approval). Coming Sept 12., a collab with @iralovesmae and myself. #dreamcometrue #iralovesmaexmermag
