Thumbnail image for 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

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 […]

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 […]

want some dolls with your coffee?

Thumbnail image for want some dolls with your coffee?

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 […]
