Love it

Love it – lamp

For over a year now I have been in love, and secretly desiring, these lamps from Mr Maria. My favourite is the Miffy Dream lamp.


Miffy Dream lamp

I’ve been looking for the perfect lamp for Anakin’s room for some time. I want it to be fun, special, beautiful and something not easily outgrown. And I think this is it. Honestly, I’d just as soon put this in my living room.


Miffy XL

I also like the Miffy and the Miffy XL.

Unfortunately living in a rental house makes us also have to put a few things we want on hold, and I think this lamp is one of those things. So, I’m still looking, for something slightly more affordable and in the table lamp category. I also fell in love with a large soft serve ice cream lamp, but they’re not only hard to come by, they also cost a fortune to ship.

So the search continues.

The Mr Maria Miffy lamps can be found here.


Little people in the wall

I’ve always had an active imagination and I want to do everything I can to make sure Anakin has a childhood full of magic and mysteries. Needless to say I fell in love with this idea the instant I saw it.

Imagine waking up one day, going about your business and then stumbling upon small, mysterious doors around the house. Perhaps one has a letterbox, perhaps a ladder or other small signs of life. How exciting!

I stumbled across this post on fairy doors over at Kate’s Creative Space. Anakin is still too young to understand it, but once he gets a bit older I can’t wait to create something like this around our house for him to find.

Perhaps there are little gnomes living there, perhaps it is the lego man and his family. I simply can’t wait to do this and hear all the stories Anakin will have about what’s going on. Love love love!!
