I have been fascinated with mobiles since I was a kid. I remember the first time I saw Alexander Calder’s work in person – back in grade school – and being absolutely mesmerized. He developed the most amazing mobiles, and many of the modern mobiles you see now use similar balancing techniques and sometimes the same forms. I’m […]
Sometimes Monday mornings need a little extra cheer. A ltitle pick me up to help breakfast and teeth brushing and finding shoes and packing lunches seem less than ordinary. We can start with a cup from Meyer Lavigne. Meyer Lavigne’s collection of cups, flower pots, and dream saver boxes (and other textiles too) make an everyday […]
The cold weather shows no sign of letting up. It’s the end of February, and yet the forecast still shows below average cold weather into the first week of March. I’m really sick of being cold. Keeping warm is essential, isn’t it? When Birdie was small, I swear I had blankets of every size and […]
As any parent will tell you, storage and organization take on an entirely different meaning when you have kids. I’m finding it’s especially true as Birdie gets older – suddenly all the pieces are 10x smaller, 10x more plentiful, and 10x more lost. All the time. So when a product promises to get your kids […]
Somehow I always feel a little weird preparing for Valentines Day in January. But now that it’s February – it’s all systems go! Celebrating Valentines Day when you have kids around is so much more fun, and these new Valentines printables over at Smallful prove that point very well, at least I hope so! Whether […]
Let’s all take it easy this week and enjoy the Holidays. In the spirit of easy: I’ll throw in a little daily inspiration with my favorite Objects of the Day all week long. With the Holidays over and the festive colors coming down, maybe it’s time to redecorate with this Chindi Bust from World Market.
Let’s all take it easy this week and enjoy the Holidays. In the spirit of easy: I’ll throw in a little daily inspiration with my favorite Objects of the Day all week long. I want to design Birdie’s entire big girl room around this stunning Dandelion Chandelier from Remains.
Let’s all take it easy this week and enjoy the Holidays. In the spirit of easy: I’ll throw in a little daily inspiration with my favorite Objects of the Day all week long. This makes me anxious for Springtime and scooter rides. See the Gotta Roll Fox Pillow at Deco Baby.
I love Fall, but sometimes fall decorations leave me a little irritated. I’m not a big fan of fake leaves and cartoonish turkeys. But I think I’ve come up with a solution this year! I wanted to add some nature around the house – because a big part of Fall’s appeal is all of the […]
Coffee tables can be anything from boring, too big, too small, painful corners, great storage, running all the way to unusual. But for families, coffee tables become even more: game time, train table, Lego central, movie night meals, etc. etc. But I’d never considered using one as a dollhouse before. Designed by Ulyanov Architects, this beauty of […]
They may not have any eye holes, or ribbon ties, or anything else that would make them actually wearable. But Abigail Brown’s paper mache masks are still some of my favorite masks ever. They’re just so well-formed in a totally not-quite-real way. And you can own your own to hang on every wall in your house. Personally, if I […]
Keeping Birdie from melting down is feeling like a full-time job this summer. Between the lack of routine, warm weather, and random summer indulgences (like popsicles and a trip to the fair), she’s begun to think every day is a big fat adventure waiting to happen. Throw in the fact that she could probably still […]
