I'm not that into pink, but the Amy Romantic Floral Sheeting from Pottery Barn Kids sent my mind back to my girlhood sheets. The pattern is very subtle pink on organic cotton, so I picked up a pair of pillowcases as a gift for Fruity's upcoming birthday. They're really lovely and selling out fast.
Here is another gorgeous work of art from the same May 2009 issue of LivingEtc as the yellow flower in the post below. And yesterday, I stumbled onto the source for both! Surface View in the UK prints images from museum collections onto canvas, wall murals, window blinds, and even ceramic tiles. I love the giant lace!

City Walks: Seattle looks like a great tool for exploring my city with the Little One. The series covers places all over the world, and each box has 50 cards with maps and tips for visiting. What a super deal (and tour guide) for around ten bucks!
Fruity Boot has been driving me crazy with a weird eating phase for weeks. She won't eat much real food, just bottle after bottle of hot milk. She used to eat everything and every kind of vegetable. We got rid of the bottle (she was nursed for 15 months and we just use the glass bottle instead of a plastic sippy cup), and she got sick and dehydrated. So we caved. Anyway, the curse has been lifted. This recipe for zucchini trifolati is so amazingly delicious. The basil makes a sweet sauce (I omitted the garlic), and a two-year-old and I just ate mountains of it. It is better than pie.
