Etsy find: Beautiful Nursery Pillows by Collette Bream

The beautiful pillows in Collette Bream’s Etsy shop collection are swoon-worthy.  When I found them a few weeks back they instantly invoked images of reading bedtime stories and singing lullabies in a peaceful and serene modern nursery or child’s room with kisses from our little ones.

Most of the pillows are 100% organic cotton and all come in the most lovely colors.

Cloud shaped pillow ($68)

Star pillow ($24)

Wolf pillow ($89)

Kisses goodnight pillow ($58)

There’s lots more in the shop, so please go browse.

Happy Holiday Giveaway 2012 with fawn & forest: Week 3 Winner

It’s been fun to hear about your holiday shopping progress this week.  I shop all through the year for my kids and hide the gifts in my closet until December.  I THINK I’ve managed to retrieve them all from their hiding places and they are now wrapped and ready to go!  This isn’t to say that I’m all done already.  I still have to figure out some gifts for people like the mailman.  What do you get for YOUR mailman?  And I’m probably NOT going to be baking.  Ideas?

Now for our winner… Stephy O’D– is not even close to being done with her holiday shopping, but she’ll get this robot gift pack to help get her a little closer!

Some cool kid in Stephy’s life is going to enjoy these Ferm Living Mr. Robot pillows,

as well as this Petit Collage Robot Print.

Congratulations Stephy!  I will email you shortly.

Stay tuned for the Week 4 (and final) giveaway…

Superhero Room Accessories

This week I keep getting closer to my little one’s 4th birthday party, and with a superhero theme, that’s about all I have on my mind.

I love these plush superhero dolls on etsy.  Unfortunately for me, it’s too late for me to order one in time for this weekend, but you still have time to order some as holiday gifts.

1- Custom Boy Superhero Doll from My Gigi Doll- $55
2- Superhero Super Girl Doll from Emily Ann’s Kloset- $30 (though if you sew, you can get the pattern for this from G and G Patterns for $10)
3- Superhero Dolls from Oh Sew Cute By Mel- $82 to $105 each

I don’t know how you couldn’t love the Super Hero Art Prints from Loopz Art.  It’s $75 for this set of 6 8×10″ prints, but there are more and they come in different sizes as well.

I like the reverence for the characters expressed in these Minimal Heroes prints from Jeff Janelle Art Design.  $15 each.

ABC SH by Fabian Gonzalez is an alphabet print classic in my book.  Can you figure out which superhero each letter represents?

Finally, these pillows would really go with the party decor we’ve got going on at our house right now.  They are $24 each from nokomomo.

Don’t forget that you can still enter to win a Superhero Dress Up Set by Little Hero from fawn & forest.  The giveaway ends tomorrow at midnight so do it now!  It’s a great gift for any little superhero in your life.

Quick and Easy Seasonal Switcheroos for the Nursery

For me, decorating for the holidays got so much better after my son was born just over 18 months ago. Now he notices everything and loves it. There is something so wonderful about sharing holiday traditions and the warmth and love that come with them when you have a family. Here are three easy ways to add seasonal decor to your nursery or children’s rooms.

1. Seasonal art

Buy one nice frame for your nursery or child’s room. Then just switch out the print in the frame as seasons change.

Baby’s First Thanksgiving print including baby’s footprints by Pitter Patter Print on Etsy ($30) would be a fun one to bring in year after year as a reminder of how little your sweetie once was.

Autumn Pumpkin watercolor print ($25) by Apple Sprout Studios is a simple, clean option that could go in the nursery or could easily work with other adult rooms in the house.

Roolaroo Designs also offers some cute fall prints for children featuring animals (4 for $45). While these prints have a fall flavor to them, they would also make great art all year round.

Or for the least expensive option, you can do what I do! I purchase seasonal scrapbook paper from Archivers or craft stores and simply frame it.

2. Throw pillows or stuffed animals

Soft Tree throw pillows ($35 and up) by Palomita on Etsy are an easy way to add Autumn to the nursery. Toss it on the floor, in the rocker or glider or even on a bookshelf or dresser.

This hedgehog print throw pillow ($39) by Earth Lab on Etsy comes in the colors I think of when I think of fall or Thanksgiving.

3. Embellish your nursery with seasonal garland, banners or bunting

This Felt Fall garland by Modern Simple Baby ($34.50) on Etsy would be a subtle touch. You could hang it on a wall shelf or even your curtain rods.

This Be Thankful Banner ($18) by Lulu and Jayne is simple and a good reminder for all of us. It would be great over a mirror or on any empty wall.

The Paper Circles Garland from The Path Less Traveled on Etsy ($8) is an easy addition to your nursery. The pom and paper lantern cluster craze in nursery design is the perfect place to add seasonal elements. String it through your cluster.

I’d love to know about your favorite ways to make your home change with the seasons.
