Two young entrepreneurial sisters making a difference with a fashion forward organic cotton baby clothing!

Thank You from Nancy O’Dell and Ashby! August 30, 2010

Named one of “Television Week’s” 10 Most Bankable Stars in Syndication, Nancy O’Dell has proven to be a force in all areas of her career as a journalist, author, producer and entrepreneur. One of the country’s most respected and leading entertainment journalists, O’Dell served as the co- anchor of “Access Hollywood” for thirteen years. She has also contributed reports to NBC News’ “Today” show and “Dateline.” With 20 years of live television experience, Nancy is a go-to host for live network specials having recently hosted ABC’s 2010 Fall Preview special, VH1’s 2010 Critic’s Choice Awards Live Red Carpet Special, and the 2010 Superbowl Fan Jam Concert Special .

When Nancy was pregnant with her baby girl, Ashby, she found herself saying often, “Why didn’t ya’ll friggin tell me that was gonna happen!” Nancy took notes during her pregnancy (the reporter in her never rests), so she would have memories of all the crazy, unexpected, scary, sometimes embarrassing things that happen during pregnancy. Now, she’s passing them on to expecting mothers and fathers so they won’t have to be as surprised as she was!

We recently received a thank you note from Ashby and Nancy:

Thank you so very much for the amazing basket you sent for my 3rd birthday. Everything in it is fantastic and I am truly enjoying! Mama Nancy says thank you as well!!
All my best!

Sama As Featured On, Greener Nests. Healthier Childhoods. August 12, 2010

I Gave at the Office

by Claire Douglass

Group gift giving can be tricky, as Mrs. Always Wears Pearls from PR, and Ms. Nose Ring and Impossibly Black Hair from Tech, can never agree on what to give Mrs. Preggos.

SAMA baby has the perfect solution. A gorgeous basket of everything that any new green mama will need that is sweet enough for Pearls, and Earth Mother enough for the angry girl from Tech.

To wit – the Deluxe basket includes:

All organic:
2 Towels
2 Blankets
Washcloth Set of 3
Knotted Hat
Gown  (Depends on the size chosen – we will ensure 3 perfect outfits for every order!)
SS Onesie

for the low, low price of $264.

Available in green, blue and pink.

For a team of 20 people that’s less than $15 each.

Surely she’s worth that.

Kelly Rutherford And Daughter Have A Super Saturday

Kelly Rutherford is now a mom-of-two but Rutherford spent years moving from town to town across the country, under the guardianship of her fashion-model mother, Ann Edwards, until she reached her teenage years. At that point, Rutherford, Edwards, and the family’s oldest child, Anthony, settled in Newport Beach, CA. Rutherford made a beeline for New York City after graduating from high school in the late ’80s, where she planned to enroll in a formal drama program; instead, she signed to do several commercials and appeared on the daytime soapers Loving (opposite Luke_Perry) and Generations. Returning to the West Coast, Rutherford subsequently trained at the Beverly Hills Playhouse.

NOw the 40-year-old Gossip Girl star welcomed her second child, daughter Helena Grace Rutherford Giersch, in Los Angeles last year. Helena joins big brother Hermés Gustaf Daniel, 2 ½. Last year Kelly revealed that big brother Hermes, 2, was looking forward to his sister’s arrival, saying, “He’s getting excited about it. We talk about it. I don’t know if the reality is there yet but he’s really sweet. He calls her by her name. I think he’s going to be an amazing big brother.”

We recently received a thank you for our participation in gifting Helena a !st birthday bag! Read a copy of the note below:

Thank you for spoiling us! Helena looks so cute & loves all of the beautiful things you send! Thank you for your generosity!
xoxo, Kelly Rutherford & Helena Grace
