More Lovely Things

I’m smitten with several items in the latest Design Within Reach catalog…Especially the Nobuho Miya iron book-end/”collectables”* atop little wooden blocks.


*I typically don’t fall for anything referred to as a “collectable”, but I’m totally digging these.

My favourite is the soy candle - I seem to have a bit of an inclination towards things tied up with string...

Those bookends are way too cute. I know several people who would go nuts over them as a Christmas gift.

really? not a collectable girl?

no precious moments? no lladro? no...{incredulous gasp!} snow covered villages with tiny people milling 'round amid faux snow?!

and here i thought you had style.

if you are close to an anthropologie, they have that nicholas book on sale for $7.95. unfortunately they don't have it listed on their website.

that soy candle looks pretty perfect.

We have the wooden elephant. It was my husbands when he was a boy and it has survived all sorts of traumas.

I love the little wooden animals :) How darling!

Ooh! A great list! I remember seeing those wooden animals in the most recent Elle Decoration UK and thinking they were perfect; so childishly endearing yet with such grown-up personality!

And I still remember all the mild french insults that I picked up reading Nicolas in high school. the illustrations in that book are classic.

thanks for the finds!

I have such a fascination with vintage, foreign, or otherwise interesting children's books. I want to fill a whole nursery with them someday!
