Angelique Verstsappen, the woman behind the blog about taste and inspiration (mentioned in the post below), also sells lovely handmade things for children at her shop zoet-stof. I fell in love with this tiny blankie and its embroidered message: "I would like you to walk with me through this beautiful life together forever." Yes, Sweet Baby, I would. (via Bloesem Kids)
I love the way French company Harmonie Intérieure presents their line of wall stickers, which can be ordered in assorted colors and sizes. The Polaroid styling is lovely, as are the color schemes for their rooms. I particularly like this simple arrangement of twin lavender beds against beige walls. (via about taste and inspiration)

I have Little Toot's toys in storage baskets woven from the same seagrass as this under bed storage basket from The Company Store, and they are great because there is no funky reed smell, no eye-watering varnish smell, and no splinters. The caster wheels on this make it almost fun to tidy up those toys.

Today was sunny, but spring hasn't sprung yet here in Seattle. It snowed earlier this week, and the flakes were so giant (like old silver dollars!) that the weight uprooted one of my trees. I much prefer the delicate, lacy type of flakes like these snowflake cookie cutters from Cox & Cox.
Just about everything at car-möbel is perfection, including this basket pram bassinet for a real, live baby! I always thought it was sad that many bassinets have solid walls so momma and baby can't gaze at each other sideways (I've reached Olympic sport level at baby gazing). And although My Possum is too big for this tree, I could keep her teddy bears in it until I pop out another Possum or two. I'm afraid to ask what shipping from Germany is, but 89 euros for this Korbstubenwagen seems like a great deal.

I don't know what these flower people watercolor paintings by Harrison Howard remind me of. They are the very definition of fantastic. It might be the deck of cards I had when I was a little kid with the floral costumes on the royal portraits that decorated each suit. This painting is called Sea of Poppies, and you can buy a print for Poppybonnet's room for $350. (via The Peak of Chic)
