putting the mobile mojo in mobiles

Thumbnail image for putting the mobile mojo in mobiles

Travel-sized musical mobiles have always been the ugly cousin, at least the majority of them. While it’s possible to find some stunning beauties in the ceiling-hung variety of nursery mobiles, somehow travel-sized models are always lacking. Like, severely. So Ferm Living’s Music Mobiles are , heh, music to my ears! And to my eyes, because […]

Thumbnail image for chevrons + babies = awesome

Oh lovely squishable huggable soft sweet-smelling babies. I was talking babies all afternoon on a playdate yesterday with a couple of expecting moms, and now I’m itching to squeeze one more than usual!  Add some pieces from Little Hip Squeaks and I think any baby would be absolutely impossible to resist. Chevrons are having a […]

shiny new notebooks – my top faves

Thumbnail image for shiny new notebooks – my top faves

There are lots and lots of wonderful things about fall. But one of my favorites has got to be the plethora of new notebooks that are available. Or, perhaps more importantly, the ready excuses I can find to buy said notebooks! Even though Birdie is in preschool – and has no immediate need for notebooks […]

bounce it on the floor: brinware

Thumbnail image for bounce it on the floor: brinware

There’s something so gorgeous about Brinware’s photography that I keep salivating. So, first of all, thank you Mr/s. Product Photographer for creating such awesome product shots! But Brinware is, in and of itself, pretty fascinating. These kid-friendly dishes are made of glass – but it’s tempered glass. So it’s about as sturdy as you can […]

Toys. Messes. They kind of go hand in hand. When you’re in the glittering toy store dreaming of your kidlet’s countless happy hours playing contentedly and lovingly with all those beautiful toys, one forgets the harsher reality: toys everywhere and underfoot, literally! I’ve had my eye on Swoop Bags for awhile actually, they’re such an […]

Did you see our advent calendar this year? Aside from the activities and some handmade things from me, my favorite advent gift for Birdie was one of these recycled pouches ($9 – $15) from a local fave: Trigo. Awesome, right? Recycled bicycle tires, cute little stamped images, and that perfect red tongue! (and by the […]

I’d planned on writing about Puj Baby months ago. Months and months ago. In the world of blogging, that can seem like a lifetime. Still, there are outstanding design examples that heartily deserve to be revisited and adored. So I’m going for it anyway. Particularly because this baby bathtub is one of my if-we-have-another-one-must-haves, which […]

Giant Erasers, of course. Forget all those collectible mini masterpiece erasers. This school year, stomp out the little ones with one big, giant, slightly squishy elephant foot. Giant is a relative term of course, these guys are around 3″ tall. Jonathan Adler (King of Hip, but of course) is thoughtful enough to provide you with […]

There’s a fascinating side effect to making Babble’s Top 50 Design Blogs for Moms. Companies are suddenly seeking me out. And I gotta admit, I’m enjoying it a bit. By and large, the conversations are friendly, the products are cool, and everyone benefits. But it’s the absolute best when  a company I already like contacts […]
