These are some of my favorite posts from around the web over the past week.

Bambino Goodies put together a great list of the most stylish versions of the ever popular memory game.  Every home needs at least one and they make a great gifts.

This fantastic tutorial from Modern Parents Messy Kids makes me want to finally get a sewing machine.  Be inspired and see “How To Use Spoonflower to Make a Customized Play Mat!”

Design Mom featured the book “Where Children Sleep” by James Mollison.  I’ve been waiting to have a look at this book and you can now read it online!  It’s worth a look.

One of my favorite wall decor ideas is to hang a map.  I even had one in my college dorm room.  It added color and helped me learn my way around town.  Design*Sponge posted a gallery of maps used as decor.

I also really loved Modern Kiddo’s roundup of vintage kid chairs.  These little gems would really add character to a child’s space.

These are some of my favorite posts from around the web over the past week.

Coos & Ahhs posted her finds from Toy Fair 2011.  Part 1 and Part 2 covered tons of fun finds.  It’s like being there, but without all the walking!  Plus it’s too cold for me in New York this time of year!

I loved this nursery featured on Nursery Notations this week.  I particularly love the art over the changing table and the fabric used for the bedding.  It’s a very calm and peaceful nursery.

My other favorite nursery tour was Finn’s Room, which was featured on ohdeedoh.  It’s simple, clean and beautiful.  I love the gray stripes and the pops of orange.

I’m glad Bambino Goodies posted about Ikea’s new Duktig workbench.   We saw it at Ikea last week and I’d have gotten one if we didn’t already have a toy workbench.

Finally, the Monster Mash post on With Two Cats was fantastic.  Nine fun monster finds!

This week, my favorite links from around the blogosphere are Valentine related.  You’ve got all weekend to make or print these holiday creations so you’re all ready by Monday.

See how to make these sweet “Keys to My Heart Lollipop Valentines.”  They’re really cute and kinda easy– except for the fact the lollipops are handmade too!

These color theory Valentines by Merrilee and her son on mer mag are fabulous.  I love the colors and can’t imagine my boys turning out anything that nice!

If you still haven’t bought or made Valentines, you’re in luck, because Mari at Small for Big has got you covered with these adorable, Download-able Monster Valentine Cards.

If you’ve got a lot of extra time on your hands this weekend– get folding!  Origami Heart Garland is where it’s at!  I think I’ve got a stack of origami paper around here somewhere.

Another printable Valentine goodie comes from Diaper Style Memoirs.  Take a look at the sweet “Oh So Many Loves!” Valentine Card Collection.
Have a fantastic we

Bloesem Kids celebrated The Year of the Rabbit with an adorable rabbit roundup featuring nine of the cutest rabbit items to be found.  The Miffy light makes me happy!

The ladies at Babyology were raving about the So-Ro cradle, which is available as a single or for twins.  It’s incredibly beautiful but not available in the US.

Since I was on the subject of bees this week, I couldn’t help admiring the Bee Birthday Party featured on Honey and Fitz.  Would make a great baby shower too.

Holly highlighted the new spring home decor collection from Anthropologie on decor8.  The animal hooks and animal pots are of particular interest as nursery accessories.

Spearmint Baby featured a nice Modern Gender Neutral Nursery with the Oeuf Sparrow collection and a Monte Luca gilder.

These are some of my favorite posts from around the web over the past week.

Take a look at this beautiful “Grey & Pink Nursery” I saw over on Spearmint Baby.  Gray and pink can be done in so many ways.

Honey & Fitz had some great ideas for “Chalkboard Contact Paper.”  You’ll never need to paint anything with chalkboard paint again.

I’m not big into crafty things, but Prudent Baby’s tutorial on “How to Make a Yarn Pom Pom” has me looking around to find a use for pom poms.

Ohdeedoh found this really interesting “High Chair or Toddler Life Guard Tower?”  Click through to the design boom page to see more.

And Chic & Cheap Nursery has been doing a very nice series “Top 5 Design Trends for 2011” all week long.

If you’re looking for fun drawer pulls, look here first.  A great post on li’l magoolie with ways to dress up an ordinary drawer.

Coos & Ahhs put together a great post featuring her favorite plastic toys.  We particulary love Schleich at our house and I want a record player too!

Ohdeedoh found these pine bookholders on the front page of etsy.  From Wonderland Furniture, they make for great nursery storage/decor.

Take a peak at these crazy space age kids’ spaces on daddytypes.  Once you get past the “furniture,” take a look at the light fixtures!

House of Turquoise posted pictures of this amazing nursery featuring the $1600 Ioline Crib from Kalon Studios.

Robot Matryoshkas

I found these Robot Matryoshkas (nesting dolls) and they’re so cool I had to share.

If you’re interested in more “Matryokshka Madness,” the blog “if it’s hip, it’s here” already did a great post with all kinds of matryoshkas so I don’t have to.
