Rock Scissor Paper: We Heart Doxies

Rock Scissor Paper is my new favorite stationary shop. Here's why...

No words can express how insanely adorable I think this all is. And I'm pretty sure Jesse needs that 'Head Honcho' mug...

Dream Pets

Have you ever seen Dakin Dream Pets? My mother (and probably yours) had them as a child, and I used to love playing with the few she still had. They're made of velveteen and sawdust- they were originally used as additional packing protection for toy trains. They're also... adorable.

They were re-introduced back in 2004 (sold at Hallmark I think), and I fell in love! Collecting the new ones wasn't nearly as difficult as the original 200+ designs. I always knew I wanted to use them in my future nursery, and that's where they are now. I'm loving the playful, carefree look they lend the room. Something always seems 'off' when nurseries don't look like children actually live there- a little too grown up. No stuffy nurseries here!

Sleeping Beauty

I've already shared the mobile, but the blank walls above the crib are now filled as well! The clock on the right is the It's My Forest Clock from decoylab, and I fell in love with it long before I was ever pregnant. The detail is just so darling, but since it's small, I painted a super-pale chartreuse circle behind it.

The canvas on the left is a reprint of a Polish poster for Sleeping Beauty designed by Hanna Bodnar. Isn't it stunning? I got a high-res version of the poster over at www.MoviePosterDB.com, did some tweaking in Photoshop (to make it fit available print sizes), and had it printed on a stretched canvas from ArtsCow. I was a little anxious about how it would come out, but it looks so fabulous in person, and cost me about $30 all said & done.

I still can't believe that in a few more months I'll have my own little sleeping beauty in the bassinet below!
