This post is brought to you by the letter B! We're going behind the scenes of 'B is for Baker' today to bring you the original video featuring Chundo as the Baker that was first aired on Sesame Street in 1996. We love this adorable segment and Chundo's enthusiasm in the kitchen as he makes a sweet baked confection for his baby. In the photograph, the cake was actually baked by Wegman's sister Pam and decorated by Chundo himself. Enjoy!
Have you checked out our incredible giveaway yet for a first edition B is for Baker? This brand new release on LittleCollector comes to you courtesy of acclaimed American photographer William Wegman whose work has been exhibited internationally, and who we've been dreaming of having on the site for a long time. We couldn't be more excited about this amazing collaboration!
Here is William's introduction to the edition: " B is for Baker, inspired by the nursery rhyme "Pat-a-Cake," features Chundo, Fay's number one son and the go to guy for most of my leading man characters in the 90's. He was named after a giant of a man I met on a trip to the south of Chile in 1989. Chundo's willingness and grand sincerity and overall largeness made him a wonderful actor and model.
In B is for Baker, the set was simple, the costume appropriate. The cake was provided by my sister Pam and decorated by Chundo himself."

We love photographer William Wegman (2013 Puppy Calendar anyone?!) and, having had the chance to visit his wonderful New York studio, we're always fascinated by his process. This video gives great insight into his working process and the wonderful characters of Faye and her brood. If you're interested in why and how photography this is a video not to be missed.
We love the gifts that are really personalized for the holidays, whether it's an embossed set of glasses or a monogrammed throw. And what better gift to give a child than their name or initials for the holidays?! LittleCollector is pleased to offer two alphabet collections from Trey Speegle (who has collaborated with Anthropologie and Stella McCarney among others) and John Nickle, whose Alphabet Explosion was published as a book. And if you're stuck for idea, PEACE, JOY and LOVE always capture the spirit of the season.

LittleCollector staffers Annie and Grace stopped by the Kate Spade store in Soho last night for a fun holiday shopping event. We also checked out the super fun photo booth where we had the chance to dress up in tons of Kate Spade winter gear and make our own animated gif! Check out the pics here and the gifs online! We think we just found the inspiration for our holiday card!
