I found this skirt made from a recycled tablecloth for Sugar Sauce on etsy, which is eBay but artsy--you buy directly from the artist. She is going to love it three years from now when it fits her. More needlework made modern!

The girl Marco Polo nursery started with the hope that Fuzzy Nuzzle has a life of exploration and discovery. This Manchurian Crane portrait and its diptych partner, by Victorian painter Henry Marks, have an exoticism and serenity about them that is whimsical without being wacky, and now they are roosting over board books.
There was a time when Martha Stewart's universe revolved around me. I had only to imagine a craft project or start a new collection, and her magazine would arrive in my mailbox telling me all about what I was craving. But Martha hasn't been hearing my brainwaves: I love modern and I love needlework. So Garnet Hill bounced this Patisserie Bedding into my psyche.
My sweet little Natalie Noodle Poodle is turning one soon, and I thought it was time I told the world about her and all things that make me happy. Today this super cute layered rabbit jigsaw puzzle came in the mail, and Booty Toot is very good at taking it apart. Right now, I'm shopping for toys like crazy--probably to make up for not being able even to begin decorating the nursery. She's one. Pretty soon she can tell me herself what she'd like. I have the vision--a very subtle Marco Polo theme, Venice to China, and all the animals and adventure that entails.
