monster alphabet

Usually a stuffed menagerie of animal letters makes me think of kids rooms – let’s write their name or add their initials, right? Somehow, I think the Monster Alphabet creatures would be better suited to something a little loftier. Perhaps it’s the extremely unique handmade approach to each individual letter. Or maybe it’s the price, […]

It’s got to be interesting. This rocking horse is more than interesting, it’s pretty much awesome. If you love a more modern look, then Blooey’s Hobbel horse clearly falls in that camp. Plus, it looks lightweight, portable, and potentially indestructible. Think it would work indoors and outdoors? On top of that, just think how easy […]

your last bit of ice cream pillows

It is the last day of August, which to me, is synonymous with the last day of Summer. I don’t care what the equinox says, and I know September will still be fairly warm and sunny for the most part, but when August is done, everything shifts. It’s only fitting that we celebrate this last […]

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 […]

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, […]

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?

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 […]

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 […]
