pillows that come in all flavors

Thumbnail image for pillows that come in all flavors

Average pillows, poufs, and bean bags are ok. They serve their purpose. But I think any kid would agree that Woouf! has made some much more appetizing options! But where do we start? The bean bags shaped like cupcakes, ice cream cones, or maybe a giant tennis shoe? Or, you can start smaller and choose […]

Little kids need a place to sit too, right? And it doesn’t have to look like a boring old mom chair. In fact, let’s go beyond what you might expect and try out a chair that kids will love: the chairs from Gobble by Form Maker They look like they’re about to eat you up, which […]

save your cents with these piggies & more

Birdie found a stash of spare change in the car today, and spent a significant amount of time counting, and sorting her riches into one of her piggy banks. It turns out we have several – thanks in part to a favorite paint-your-pottery shop in our favorite weekend spot. One of these days I’m going to […]

let’s be compatriots

I like to think my home has some life to it, and these Compatriot Stools would definitely add to that vibe. I prefer the subtler stool with all four legs on the floor, but the other version, with hands holding up the seat, is pretty sweet too. Or maybe one of each?

Birdie and I were knitting yesterday, and boy did it feel good to knit side by side! I’ve taught her the basic knit stitch a couple of different times over the past year or two, but I wasn’t sure it really sunk in. Well today, she was on a roll, doing it all by herself with just […]

chasing paper for your walls

I have been a firm wallpaper-hater for years. I’ve seen too many home improvement shows where someone else’s decor choices mean backbreaking labor for the new homeowners! Why would I ever want to choose something so permanent for my walls? I’m too indecisive for that. Luckily, I’ve found Chasing Paper. They make removable wallpaper. Actually, […]

One of a kind kids pillows have become The Thing lately, have you noticed? There are lots of options out there, but I’m loving these sweethearts from Ava & Yves. Ava & Yves is a stationery and housewares brand based in Germany, and these brand new pillows are actually similar to some of their prints. […]

spring bunnies, the wooden kind

Sometimes one just need the perfect excuse to purchase something they’ve been wanting for a long time anyway. That’s how I feel about sculptural wooden animals, and since Spring and Easter are right around the corner, bunnies come to mind! Which would you choose, the Lucie Kaas rabbit above, or the Kay Bojesen rabbit below?

Happy St. Paddy’s Day! Make sure you have the luck of the Irish and download Smallful’s Rainbow Crown! It’s springtime! I want to shout it from the rooftops and hilltoops and mountaintops like that famous scene in Sound of Music. I want to throw my arms wide and shout: “Let’s make some Spring printables!” Okay, […]

new from Smallful: in the clouds mobile

Thumbnail image for new from Smallful: in the clouds mobile

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 […]

a cupboard full of characters for you

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 […]

keeping warm with twiggy and opal baby quilts

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 […]

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 […]
