greyboy handmade & greyboy vintage shops

summer series coming soon....





greyboy handmade shop: childhood, nostalgia, city aspects, gender neutral street style

i blame art school for subconsciously making everything a concept and pushing ideas to a specific point and reason. greyboy started 3 years ago as a hobby. making my son handmade clothes. once i started i couldn't turn it off and it has now developed into its own style. all designs are hand-drawn & handprinted (mostly screen printed but some are hand painted) raising my kids in the city has been my biggest inspiration. they already seem to have a sense of style and are aware of all their city surroundings. we have a lot of fun items to share. stay tuned!
new instagram: @greyboyshop with have all the sneak peaks. summer series is coming soon :) 



greyboy vintage: sprouted from having a creative block. its a great way to turn my mind off and get into a different realm. almost like getting lost in a good book. thrift stores are my therapy. escaping into the past to find decades of fashion designs. there is nothing better than that special find. you didn't know what you were looking for until you found it. that high drives me to then create more. so basically my life is creating and finding and then creating more.

monday munchies / sweet potato, apple & cranberry hash (with oxo tot)

 an easy fall snack. to get your thanksgiving juices flowing.

ingredients:
two small apples
one sweet potato
1 cup of cranberries
1 tablespoon of cinnimon
2 tablespoons of coconut oil

preheat 400 degrees. cut the apples and sweet potatoes in cubes. coat the bottom of pan with coco oil. put the apples and sweet potatoes on top. cover with cinnamon. bake for 15 min. put cranberries on top and bake for another 5 min. enjoy warm or after it cools.

the best part about this snack, is its great for kids as well as babies. 
using oxo tot's [food masher] you can control the consistency. chunkier pieces for older babies and pureed for younger babies.
store the left overs in these [glass baby blocks] 
 this [feeding spoon set] makes it easy for Jules to feed himself
i think he is ready for thanksgiving feast!
