There are theme mobiles and felt mobiles but Gulnara Kydyrmyshova does themed felt mobiles really well.
I love how the pieces hang off the large palm in the Pink Flamingo Mobile.
Owls and stars are common mobile motifs, but Gulnara’s Owls and Stars Mobile has a fresh and original look.
And for something really original, check out the Taco Dreams Mobile.
You can find these at uncommon goods for $48 each (and be sure to search for the matching booties!).
January 5th is National Bird Day, which reminded me of the awesome bird plushies I was admiring at Ikea last week.
Part of the ÖNSKAD collection, this colorful Rooster for $4 will be their partner in playing farm.
The pink Flamingo is a Florida favorite so I may have to snag one for $7 on my next Ikea run.
This “clown of the sea”, the Puffin, makes an adorable friend for $5.
And finally, the Parrot is a beautifully detailed soft toy for $5.
These are some of the most lovely stuffed animals I’ve seen at Ikea and I was truly tempted to grab them all.
Also this National Bird Day, help preserve bird habitats and consider donating to the National Audubon Society.
We’ve enjoyed Charley Harper books, toys and art kits, but now The Land of Nod is bringing Charley Harper’s art and style to your home in a new way. The Charley Harper for Nod collection features home decor, accessories and bedding full of bold patterns, shapes and colors.
For the nursery, the Florida Keys bedding collection is stunning– and I’m not just saying that because I live in Florida. The collection includes a quilt, crib sheet, and changing pad cover.
Colorful pillows accent the bedding collections, but they’d be great to add to solid bedding sets as well. Take a look at the Bear, Raccoon, Ladybug Striped Sham, Ladybug, Tiger, and Butterfly throw pillows.
I’ve seen Giraffe and Flamingo growth charts before, not none as cute as these.
Finally, the Charley Harper for Nod rugs are bold and bright. These really make a statement.

New from Numi Numi Design, these powder coated steel growth charts are off-the charts cool. They’re among the few growth charts that are as functional as they are beautiful works of art.
As a Florida girl, I can’t decide between the Flamingo and the Alligator, but I’m sure most of you will go for the ever-popular Giraffe. $200

3 Sprouts is introducing a few new animal characters to their collection of storage bins, boxes and wall organizers.
The new Camel Storage Bin ($32) is my favorite bin so far, and the new Unicorn and Dragon storage boxes ($26) are straight from a fairy tale.
The two new wall organizers ($26) are the Flamingo and Giraffe.

These are some of my favorite posts from around the web over the past week.
First of all, I have to show you this incredible (Not So) Mellow Yellow Mood Board from chalk + dot. Just paint the walls your favorite shade of gray and you’ve good to go! Visit the post for all the sources and the inspiration.
I seriously had no idea you could do this, but Honey & Fitz shared their secret of Converting an upholstered chair into a swivel glider. There is no longer any acceptable reason to have an ugly rocker or glider in you home.
Being a Floridian, I had to take note of babyology’s A Flock of Flamingos. Such a fun roundup (even though I’ve never actually seen a Flamingo in Florida!).
Coos & Ahhs rocked another “Word of the Week” post (they’re all incredible) with this super-fun elephant roundup. Twenty-two wonderful elephants 🙂
Remember Chic & Cheap Nursery’s guest post from last week? Well, (of course) she’s come up with a few more affordable options to get the look for the Pink & Navy Preppy Nursery. See Save vs. Splurge: Affordable Copy Cats for all her finds.
