Mr Maria Lamps

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.

But Miffy and Miffy XL are not all that we’ll be seeing.  There is also Anana the elephant, the hanging Miffy Dream, Nanuk the bear and Kokeshi.

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.

Etsy Find: PIllows from Cecil & Clyde

March will be roaring in at the end of the week so I want to be sure you have plenty of time to order a selection of Easter Bunnies from Cecil & Clyde.

But that’s not all you can find in Margaret’s etsy shop.  My favorite selection from Cecil & Clyde is the Sun and Cloud Pillows.  This cute set is available with either blue or pink piping, or you can request a custom color.

And there’s a whole variety of cute animals in different color and fabric combinations that you should definitely take a look at.  There’s bound to be something the suits your nursery perfectly like these Elephants, Sheep, Whales and more.

Disclosure: Cecil & Clyde is once of our lovely sidebar advertisers

Rich or Reasonable: Pico Pillows from Areaware or Laura Frisk Pillows

I was admiring the block printed animal pillows by Laura Frisk on etsy.  Her woodblock printed plush animal pillows are charming, fun and would go well in many-a-nursery. (Woodland Creatures Collection shown below)

As I looked at all the designs I was reminded of one of my favorite sources of animal pillows– the Fauna Pillows by Ross Menuez.  His photographic images are quite different from the block printed ones, but on a budget, Laura Frisk’s designs could be used for similar impact!

Fox Pico or Plush Fox Pillow in Yellow
Elephant Mini Cushion or Plush Elephant Pillow
Tabby Cat Mini Cushion or Orange Tabby Cat Throw Pillow

They Posted These So I Don’t Have To: Easter Edition

These are my favorite Easter themed posts from around the web this past week.  All you bunny fans are in luck this week!

First, Li’l Magoolie put together this great roundup of beautiful bunnies from her local stores in Australia.  See all eight of her picks in Hippity Hoppity Easter’s On Its Way.

As proof that great minds think alike, Small for Big posted her top six stuffed bunny picks in Every Bunny Needs Some Bunny.

These adorable Miffy Lamps were featured on Kid Crave. I so wish they were available in the US.

Inhabitots featured the Imagination Kids Wooden Play Food Carrot and Bunny as a Perfect Eco Easter Gift.  I have to agree with them.

And Petit Planet had a few more Eco-Friendly Easter Basket Gifts for Green Kids.  Aren’t these tiny felt bunnies the sweetest?!

Hope you had a very happy first week of Spring!  We’re spending our first spring Friday at a friend’s pool and will finish off our Spring Break with a quick trip to Legoland Florida!  Have a good one.
