Hook Me Up...

I try to link to other bloggers with design/art/creative blogs as they comment or as I stumble upon them but sometimes I might overlook. If you have a design/art/creative blog and are not already linked here leave a comment or shoot me an email and I'll hook you up. :)

Messy Fish

Adorable little playmates with a website to match, these funky monkeys by Paolo Fiorentini would make great unique gifts for the little ones. They're sure to become a family keepsake. Enjoy!

For Pink...

Casapinka is having difficulty deciding how to decorate her children's room. The problem? It's one room that will house a boy and a girl. There must be a balance of the sexes. And let's not forget that the girl must have pink. My suggestion for Pink, one among many, is to go white with the walls and let each child's bed speak for their own space and sex, sort of like two separate spaces within one open room. I would connect them together by mirroring the patterns while separating them with colors that contrast but blend...and the girl gets pink.

Below are two fabric groupings, one for a girl and one for a boy. I would do the duvets from the dots. This might lean a wee bit on the girly side, but since they're quite young I think it can easily be pulled off. I would do the accessories (pillows, etc.) with a mix and match from the rest with the color that ties them both together being the lime green. This is just a suggestion and maybe it will help Pink in one way or another. Enjoy. :)

Find A Penny Pick It Up...

all day long you'll have good luck. This penny plate from etsy seller RickiMOUNTAIN is almost too cute to use. At $12.99 it's a great buy and the perfect item to catch your change. Enjoy!
