The Gift of Time – Wall Clocks!

The other day I came to the realization that I am surrounded by time, yet I never have enough of it.  The microwave, the coffee maker, the stove, the computer, the alarm clock, the cable box, the stereo, and my cell phone constantly remind me how very little time I actually have.  I swear I have aged like 10 years since I gave birth.  I don’t know where it goes, but time really does fly. Anyway, the point is that I have all of these digital clocks all over the place and not one wall clock – which is ridiculous.  The wall clock is a staple of the home and we can’t let that quiet tick-tock be silenced by an LCD display.  So, give someone the gift of time this holiday season … or give it to yourself – you deserve it.

This MDF and bamboo creation is the work of Keith Moore of PILOTdesign in Minneapolis.  I love his color combinations!  Be sure to check out the rest of his modern clock pieces and his lighting designs – very cool.  Splat White-on-Green Clock $59.00.


This little owl clock is soooo cute!  Made from laser cut bamboo and fitted with a silent motor [making it perfect for baby’s room!].  Made by Maiko Kuzunishi of Decoylab in Kansas City, MO.  $48.00.


These beautiful china clocks are the works of Jenilyn of Faire Houre.  The clock on the left is made with a porcelain plate from PiP Studio and on the right, some gorgeous lacey looking repurposed china.  ON SALE – $39.00 / $33.00


Such a simple design and a totally modern feel.  I love this Pendolo Clock by husband and wife team Vincent and Jessie of uncommon.  Available in a wide range of colors.  $59.00. You should also check out some of the amazing furniture pieces handcrafted by Vincent at Dust Furniture.

Nursery Porn

Pink for a girl, blue for a boy, and yellow if it could go either way.  How boring!  Preparing your baby’s nursery is one of the rites of passage into motherhood. You want it to be as perfect as your newborn bundle … and you want it to be the envy of your mommy friends.  Just be sure not to go overboard.  Keep it simple, add some personal touches, and remember that this room is for your baby [not you].  Also keep in mind that your baby will grow out of things and into things pretty fast, so design a room that can grow and change with your little one’s needs.

One of the biggest trends in today’s nurseries are modern and playful wall decals.  I found a great selection at blik, including this beautiful “Anise” design by Ilan Dei.


Another great way to add some personality to your nursery are mobiles [and your baby will love them too!].  This fanciful silk bird mobile by NightByrd is available at Fey Handmade.


I spent hours on the internet looking for ideas for Ava’s nursery.  Project Nursery is filled with inspiring photos of readers nurseries, inspiration boards, DIY projects, and more.


And the nursery porn over at ohdeedoh cannot be beat.  They also have tons of DIY and fun kid-friendly activity ideas.


The most important item for your baby’s nursery?  Love.  You can’t go wrong with that.  XO
