The Tea Art Gallery

As I limit myself to NOT discussing clothing and kids fashion here on the blog, I never get to talk to you about my #1 BY FAR FAVORITE clothing brand for my kids. For YEARS a majority of their wardrobe (not counting school uniforms) has comprised of the great designs and comfy fabrics from Tea Collection. I stock up on the summer clothes at the end of the season, and in here in Florida, my boys wear their Tea Collection tees and shorts all year long. For proof, just scroll through my Instagram feed. You’re bound to see what I’m talking about.

So, WHY am I talking about this when the blog isn’t about fashion? Because Tea Collection has partnered with Art.com to bring their graphics, including this season’s Germany Collection to you in art form! The art of Tea,suits your walls as much as your wardrobe!  Previous seasons have been inspired by China and Morocco.

Tea Collection Germany Girly

And this is just a small sampling of what’s available.  So much potential nursery wall art!

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.

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.

il_570xN.280678356

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.
