ABC3D Ships!

Yeah, my copies of Marion Bataille's ABC3D are finally on their way to me. Thanks Amazon! I pre-ordered them months ago and had basically forgotten all about them. So the email saying they shipped was a nice surprise and now they will be on the doorstep any day now. I bought three copies, one for my little one (yummy, books are delicious!), one for safe keeping and one for some lucky friend. Check out the video here to fully appreciate just how cool ABCs can be!

Naughty is Nice

I love Rob Ryan’s work. My recent favorite image is “Why are you so naughty?” It makes me think of my daughter and the devilish looks she gives me when she is ripping off her diaper or peering out from her hiding spot behind the chair. The tile version is sold out but now there’s a children’s T-shirt available at his new store Ryantown in sizes 12-18 months, 18-24 months and 24-36 months. A size for every naughty little stage! I want to get one for the upcoming terrible twos!

Wee and Wonderful Worlds

Wee Gallery's wall graphics are a great and affordable way to add interest to your little ones' room. As an added benefit they are designed to be seen by the littlest of babies and sure to stimulate even the youngest imaginations. My favorite's are the Jungle and Woodlands with its own little hedge hog.

A Good Hair Day Makes Me Giddy

Or rather giddy giddy. I love this mom-owned company's sweet line of hairclips for little and big girls. As the mother of a little girl who arrived in the world with a full head of hair containment is a big issue and hairclips an everyday essential. So, I was thrilled to find these cute clips while browsing small magazine's site which consistently showcases great stuff for kids along with amazing photography and illustrations. I loved the small flower clip they featured (like the orange one above) and went to giddy giddy's site in search of it. Instead, I found even more great clips and now can't decide which I like best. Here are some of my favorites.

Cat Adoption

A friend sent me a lovely email today inquiring if I wouldn't be interested in adopting her cat. Said kitty is a pedigree, has a lovely disposition and is cuddly. Unfortunately my cat Lola is mutt from Brooklyn with a mean streak! But very lovable and cute in her own right. So adoption is out, although I'd be happy to give these two lovelies from little love blue a home. Cary Walker crafts lovely little creatures and flora too. Her mushrooms and pumpkins are a perfect fall gift for someone you really like.
