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 […]

round about: duck shrubbery & mod paper bags

Thumbnail image for round about: duck shrubbery & mod paper bags

Well, folks, Birdie made it through the first week of school. In one piece, without any major tantrums, or forgotten lunches. And it sounds like she only ran around trying to kiss the boys twice. I guess that’s an acceptable amount in her eyes, but I’m not sure the boys would agree. I feel like I […]

replace your throw pillows with these

Thumbnail image for replace your throw pillows with these

So your sofa is covered in striped, patterned, nubby, or velvet throw pillows. They’re pretty, semi-functional, and totally expected. I dare you to replace them with one of these characters. Though, if I tried to tell Birdie that the stuffed toy from Poosac sitting on the sofa wasn’t hers, but instead belonged to the sofa, […]

School starts next week, and my little baby will officially be a big kid attending Kindergarten. In so many ways I am so not ready. But the universe has decided to throw me a couple of curve balls that are ensuring that I will find a way to be ready. As one opportunity ends, a […]

let’s all get out our animal masks

Thumbnail image for let’s all get out our animal masks

They may not have any eye holes, or ribbon ties, or anything else that would make them actually wearable. But Abigail Brown’s paper mache masks are still some of my favorite masks ever. They’re just so well-formed in a totally not-quite-real way. And you can own your own to hang on every wall in your house. Personally, if I […]

back to school backpacks

I tried to convince Birdie that she needed one of these amazing little backpacks designed by Michelle Romo for the Land of Nod. But she’d already found a unicorn backpack she prefers, and I’m not really surprised, since unicorns are one of her top most favorite of favorite things! Still, if we hadn’t seen the unicorns, […]

Some seem to have a world all their own – like this timeless beauty of a doll by Severina Kids. All those screenprinted details – I particularly like the lacey little […]

Sometimes something happens and your whole view of your little world shifts: you realize how lucky you really are, in comparison to all the crap that happens out there. I’m ending this week in a bittersweet but grateful mood. I’m happy for my little family, my little career, and the sunshine afternoons with the sweet […]
