We’ve taken to the halls of the Museum of Fine Arts for a stroll with the masters on this blustery winter day. Elise marvels at larger than life works of art and we are soon lost in wonder at the museum.  She’s determined to find pieces from thumbprint images in our guidebook and each discovery brings a moment of pride and excitement.

Walking through exhibit rooms and halls, she’s easily spotted in a darling red ensemble from Valya Kids and Blue Alma Knits.  A red corduroy skirt with heart shaped pockets is a happy addition to her wardrobe.  Valya Kids, a new childrenswear brand with a heartwarming story, enchanted us with their twirly skirts and matryoshka printed tops.  The brand pays homage to the designer’s grandmother who sewed and knit clothing for children in her village.  Valya Kids transports us to times past, evoking feelings of nostalgia and childhood.

When the art of craft is passed down through families and generations, modern-day results can be marvellous, such is the story behind knitwear brand Blue Alma Knits, maker of Elise’s apple red cardigan.  Lightweight and easy to wear, these knit pieces seamlessly fit into any little one’s wardrobe and I’m smitten by their unique and stunning designs.

During this time of great political divide, it seemed fitting to visit with our nation’s first president, George Washington, a mighty presence in the Americas wing at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
