Shadow boxes

30 May

Shadow boxes never go out of style, in my humble opinion.  I wanted to share some of my favorites from around the web.  Even if the object you want to put on display is somewhat mundane — a great way to pimp out your shadow box is by adding decorative wallpaper or wrapping paper as a background.  

The photo at the bottom of this post is a shadow box filled with tags is a “wishing tree” which was created as a wedding shower gift.   Each tag shares a wish or piece of advice from close friends of the bride and groom.  The shadow box is a great way to keep these thoughts with them all the time. 

Great online shop for baby stuff

3 Apr

I’m probably very behind on this but I just discovered this great website for baby gifts and nursery items called Fawn & Forest.  http://www.fawnandforest.com/ There are so so so many cute baby decor and gift ideas on this site.  I think it will be my go-to site for future baby gifts.  Lots of great stuff and all very design-y — like modern nursery furniture and a very trendy dollhouse with floor to ceiling windows and LED lights – how cool.

MacKenzie Childs Ceramics

12 Oct

I’ve been a fan of the whimsical ceramics of MacKenzie Childs for a lot of years now.  So much so that I even painted a pair of hinged wooden school chairs like the Piccadilly pattern. (The chairs now grace my mother’s front porch in Texas).

It’s because there’s such a child-like aspect to the MacKenzie Childs products that I’ve become such a fan of their children’s enamelware.  Wouldn’t this be perfect in a little girl’s tea set?  If they don’t already offer one, they should! Might be a fun stop to visit their headquarters if you’re ever in Aurora, NY. http://www.mackenzie-childs.com
