nursery accents























This is Jubilee. She is a sweet little lamb made of chenille that I purchased from the wonderful doggiepiggie on etsy.























I received this cute sock monkey as a gift yesterday from the lovely muffintopdesigns. Each one of my kids has a muffintopdesigns sock monkey, and she felt it was only fitting that the mini papercut should own one too. I think we'll name him Socko.

I've been on the look-out for nursery accents lately. Nothing tradition, maybe a little quirky and a bit whimsical. I'm only looking for a few things for organization: diaper caddy, container/canister to hold ointments, nail clippers, thermometer etc., and a night light. Up until now I haven't seen anything that really appeals to me, but today I was lucky enough to find a couple of items that fit the bill. This whimsical table lamp will be used as a nightlight, thanks to a low-wattage light bulb and the sugar canister will house all our odds and ends.

























Yes, I realize that these pieces are not intended for a nursery, but I kinda like the retro, vintage feel of the sugar canister, and the table light is just too cute, don't you think?

Brianne, the table lamp is from a store in Canada called Homesense, in the US it's the equivalent of Homegoods. I believe both companies are owned b TJ Maxx. The lamp came in 3 sizes and the one I have is the smallest of the 3 :).
