Adorable Alert: Bobo Choses

Summertime, sunshine, and adorable babies!  Can you just picture a chubby infant in these onesies?  This clothing line, by Bobo Choses, exudes the cheery ease of hot summer days.  It’s a little expensive, but so cute!  It can at least serve as inspiration as we get our first hints of spring here in the Bay Area..

Sophie the Giraffe Inspired Nursery Mood Board

We all know about Sophie the Giraffe, an extremely popular (and adorable) teething toy.  After a suggestion from Edyta to create a Sophie-inspired nursery and subsequently finding out that Sophie is turning 50 this year, I decided it was a perfect time to make a mood board dedicated to this lovable giraffe.  A neutral nursery with some color accents felt appropriate for Sophie on this rainy Sunday.

Spring break!

This means no mood board today, but we will leave you with this–the perfect travel bag for your modern kid! I’m not gonna lie–I wouldn’t mind having an …continue…

How cute is this train print?  I know plenty of little girls and boys who would love to have this around (my niece happens to be a gigantic sucker for trains). While you’re at it, check out the rest of Shop Sapling Press‘ goods.  Most of the letterpress cards had me giggling, such as the one that says “Dear Fork, I understand that we haven’t spoken since I ran away …continue…
