Finally we can talk about the cute, modern kid friendly lamps from Dutch design studio, Mr Maria. With their iconic Miffy lamps at the helm, Mr Maria lamps will be arriving on US shores thanks to Cool Kids Company.
Finally, Snuffy is not a lamp, but he’s awfully cute.
No timeline or pricing details are available yet, but I’ll update this post when the time comes.

I might have to make a rare visit to JC Penney to check these out in person but I can’t believe I haven’t heard about this partnership before today (thanks Pinterest!). Happy Chic is Jonathan Adler’s lower cost decor and furnishings collection for JC Penny and if his style is prohibitive for you at regular prices, this might just be the perfect solution. I’m not sure why this hasn’t been publicized more widely (a la Target special collections), but here are my favorite picks to add to your nursery decor plans or just around the house.

Squirrel Magazine Holder- $25

Oh my. I have come to get really excited about those days of the year when The Land of Nod (one of my favorite affiliates!) comes out with their new products for the season. I can’t wait to share them with you. At the same time I know I’m in for a marathon blogging session, because there’s SO MUCH I’ve got to post for you to see! Here goes…
This new low-rise crib made by El Greco Woodworking exclusively for The Land of Nod is an incredible new addition to their furniture collection and an excellent option for any nursery. The crib is shown here in grey but also comes in white and white with espresso base and white with maple base. They are all beautiful. $900
And the As You Wish Upholstered Bed is a simple design with a lovely curved headboard. This can be upholstered in a number of different fabrics but the one shown below is pretty fabulous. $899-$999
As You Wish Storage Benches are seating and storage in one. Pick your color for $350.
There are lots of cute new decorative pillows as well.
There is also a huge collection of new kids bedding but there’s too much to share, so just take a look.
I’m quite sure these Spell Ya Later Letters are going to be a huge hit. The letters of the alphabet (about $3 each) are available in girl and boy colors– but you could totally mix and match them. Then you buy a 3 yard shoelace ($4) and voila, you have yourself a super cool name banner. Really thinking of getting this for my boys, and maybe for all the kids I know!
The new (faux) leather poufs would function as bright pops of color as well as a seat or ottoman. $79
I hope you’re inspired and go take a look at all the stuff I skipped. Kudos again to The Land of Nod for their excellent choices and always keeping it fresh.

I think there were some of you out there who hadn’t ever visited booninc.com and explored their line of beautifully designed and useful products. I consider that a shocking state of affairs and I’m glad to have rectified the situation.
One of their most fun new items is the Glo nightlight and I’m excited to announce that the winner is…. Missy L. who also likes Boon’s Bug Pod.

I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Boon’s Glo since I first spotted it at last year’s ABC Kids Expo. This unique nightlight was one of the most fun and exciting decor accessories at the show and I knew that as soon as it came out, I wanted to share one with my readers.
The wait is finally over and Glo is ready to shine! Boon calls Glo a “color-changing nightlight with portable glowing balls” and that really sums it up. This nightlight features illuminated Glo balls that change color on the base and can be removed for play or to be taken into bed. After about 30 minutes, the light fades away.
