Etsy Find: Animal ABCs from Jen Oaks Illustration

We’ve done alphabets, and we’ve done animal alphabets, but I’m really enjoying Jen Oaks‘ specific take on the animal alphabet.

My favorite is Oklahoma Animals.  I love this collection of creatures and the wonderful colors.


The Earth’s Animals version is another great print the absolutely a great piece if you like purple and green.

My Modern Nursery: The Baby’s Big Boy Room

Before you know it, the baby has grown out of his perfect nursery and you have to move him on to a big boy room.  This was so hard for me and while I put it off as long as I could, we finally made the transition at the beginning of the year.  Even though this isn’t a nursery, you can easily turn this space back by simply changing out the bed for a crib.  I though this worth sharing to show how the design boards translate into a real space, plus I’m excited to share the photos of how his room turned out!

Nuggie's Room

1- I collected decor and pieces from some of my favorite artists and designers–
March Owl Illustration from Gingiber (similar)
Cool Cool Clock from Little Nest- $150
Lovely, Love My Family Print in Yellow from Tuesday Morning- $25
You Are My Sunshine from Petit Collage
2-  Here in Florida, fans in the bedroom are pretty much a necessity, so we forego the fancy light fixture for the most stylish fan we can find. The Minka-AireConcept II Flush Mount Ceiling Fan ($270) fit the bill.
3- I love the Magnetic World Puzzle English Edition from Janod as art as well as a toy- $45
4- Light Bulb Garlands from Oeuf- $64
5- Just because it was time to get rid of our Oeuf crib didn’t mean I wanted to quit Oeuf, so my furniture choice was a no-brainer.  I went with the Merlin Three Drawer Dresser and
6- a Sparrow Twin Bed and Nightstand.  The Tulip Lamp was a vintage find on Fab.com and I adore it.
7- I picked the Sailor Yellow Sheets as well as the Regatta Yellow Sheets from Unison. They also come in crib sizes.  I like to mix and match the narrower stripes with the wider ones.
8- Pierre the Bunny from blabla kids is a perfect companion for any child, mine included- $56
9- Herman is a sweet plush owl from Sleepy King and is a treasure.
10- We used the same rug we had in the nursery.  It was from Ikea several years ago.  Even though we’ve changed the colors of the room, the rug still works perfectly.
Finally, the Monte Como Glider is one of the most comfortable and beautiful seats ever.  Just because you don’t have a baby to rock doesn’t mean you have to give up a great spot to sit while in their room.

As I planned the space, I used Pinterest to collect all my ideas and you can see more there.  I finally put the final item in last week and so I just have to tidy up.  Soon I’ll post photos of the room all finished!

Marvelous Maps: USA

For some reason we usually feature world maps here on the blog, but a beautiful map of the United States can be treasured in the American home.  Local geography is just as important as the global version.  In preparation for the 4th of July this week, here are a few of my favorite educational versions for your child’s walls.

From Urban Tickle, this patriotic red, white and blue version comes as a 24″ x 36″ poster, canvas or jumbo canvas.


The Pixel Prince has a few different US map designs but my favorite is the cute art print with illustrated details throughout.


The USA Children Map from Vassi Slavova is perfectly simple and straightforward with easy to use colors.


Children Inspire Design is famous for their map prints and my favorite US map from them is this labeled My Travels Personalized Wall Map Print.


Petit Collage recently released this new fabric wall decal of the U.S.A.  I suspect (hope) this might show up in one of my nephew’s rooms soon.


Finally, by Jon Cannell, this Grand Canvas Map Banner is a unique print on a natural canvas banner.
