harriet & mickey

I don’t know why I have never seen the work of Annie Lavigne before… she teaches right here at RISD and her work is A-MAZ-ING! 

Whimsical and cheery… I want all of these prints!
Her site is my new go-to place for baby gifts, birthdays and even weddings.

Annie has a super cute blog too, written by her two main characters, Harriet and Mickey!
ps- to: garnet hill + land of nod- why are you not selling Harriet + Mickey!?!

little red

in the spirit of the season…
red is such a lovely, and often ignored color for a fun kid’s room.
bright and cheerful, red is a wonderful base; easily unisex (as shown here)… for a more girlie take, add punchy flowers, for a boy, trucks!
i especially love red because it is such an easy base color to use when mixing bits of vintage with handmade and modern finds…

buttoned up with love

christine and I worked up another cute, quick and inexpensive way to get gussied up for valentine’s day…
cut out some cute hearts from felt, slit them across the center and button them up into your favorite shirt!
recycle the felt “cut out” by backing it with a contrasting color, stitch it down the side, add a festive ribbon and VOILA! 
a bookmark for dad!

oh, baby baby!

here is the second part to my Martha Stewart Baby/Kids posting…

there really is nothing better for inspiration than Martha Stewart, and these timeless magazines hit all points- nursery decor, birthday parties, halloween costumes, food and gifts.
scoop them up on ebay when you can… you won’t be sorry!
