Window Shopping Wednesday – Little Woodlanders

So I stumbled on this website the other day and I just had to share with you guys!  I think her ideas on toys are great.

Here’s what she has to say:  I started making wooden toys for my children shortly after I discovered the Waldorf ideas about play. I love the idea of open-ended toys, made of beautiful natural materials, that allow children to use their imagination. Toys that can be used in so many different ways, not just with one function or purpose. It’s such a joy to hold a beautiful wooden toy in your hand, a piece of nature. It’s even more of a joy watching children’s imaginations go wild with the toys!

I think this Life Cycle of a Butterfly is a great idea for a child or for a teacher.  It’s visual and tangible.  Lovely.

Aren’t these little chicks just adorable?  I definitely would love to have these guys for my Easter table!

 

I love ladybugs and think this little guy (gal?) is just precious.

I think these acorns would make great decoration for fall or you could even use them as hostess gifts.

I think this is a beautiful figurine that any new mother would enjoy.

Thanks for shopping with me today!

Window Shopping Wednesday – Z Gallerie (odds and ends)

Hi friends.  I’m back for another installment of Window Shopping Wednesday.  Today we will pick up with our last stop at Z Gallerie.  As I’m sure you remember, we already found several fabulous pieces of furniture as well as some amazing art and mirrors.  This week, we’re going to take a look at all the other goodies that Z Gallerie has to offer.

I’m sure this would be an absolute nightmare to keep clean but I really want to rest my feet on this totally snuggleable Ludlow Pouf in Winter White.

Speaking of incredibly snuggleable things, I’m dying for this Lazo Throw!  It comes in several colors: Steel, Aquamarine, Aubergine, Charcoal, Peacock (pictured), Platinum, Sunset, and Winter White.  If you’re wondering what I want for Christmas, I’ll take one in every color please!

I love this Ciambella Table!  It’s a little quirky, a little modern, but it’s a great piece.

This Cloud Stool in White is such a wonderfully soft and feminine piece.  I can definitely see this in a bachelorette pad or in a master bathroom.

How great are these Parker Lanterns?  Wouldn’t these be just fab hanging on your patio?  AND they’re on sale!  SCORE!  (sold individually)

I think I have a love for herringbone pattern (as detailed here) .  I definitely have a love for these Midas Votive Cups.  Can you believe these suckers are created by hand?  Craziness!

These Bling Tealight Lamps would make amazing statement pieces in a formal dining room.  They need to come live at my house.

So if you don’t know that Chevron is all the rage in home decorating right now then you’ve probably been living under a rock.  However, if you’re not one who really ascribes to trends or if you like the idea but don’t want your entire house to look like a slightly askew jailhouse uniform then these Zig Zag Candles (available in black and teal) are a great way to incorporate the trend.

How sweet is this Notting Hill Table Clock?  I think she needs a place on my office desk, STAT!

If you have a man in your life or you ascribe to a slightly more masculine aesthetic then this Moving Gear Wall Clock is for you.  It’s pretty bad ass if I do say so myself.  This big guy might just find his way under my Christmas tree for the Hubs.

So if you’ve read my blog for a while you know that I’m an avid reader.  Being such, we have a lot of books in our house.  A lot.  Like we kinda look like a library.  Anyway, I’m loving me these White Owl Bookends because they’re understated but still fun.  It’s a great way to get in on the owl trend without it being overwhelming or cutesy.

I love the Moroccan feel of these Mimosa Frames (available in Mango, Indigo and Aquamarine).  These would be such a fun seasonal add for spring and summer.  And now I kinda want to book a vacation to Morocco…

So the goofball in me really likes this Wine Monkey.  I wouldn’t actually want him in my house but I’d totally give him as a hostess gift.  Would you be thrilled or mortified to receive this?

Yet again my love of quirk has led me to this Spoon Dish.  What a cute way to display and serve little nibbles at a dinner party.

This Casablanca Dhurrie Rug in Fog is soooo me.  Great color, interesting pattern, and all without being completely overwhelming.  L-O-V-E (it also comes in Indigo, Lemon, and Steel)

So I’ve had the luxurious privilege of walking on and scrunching my toes through this super-soft Indochine Rug in Platinum.  Truthfully I just wanted to roll around on it.  Seriously people, it’s like sex for your feet.  (also available in Peacock and Aubergine)

Thanks for shopping with me again!  We’ll be on to a new store next week so make sure you come back!
