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 […]
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. […]
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!

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, […]
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.
