We want to get 'The Kid' some blocks. We (I) are going for 'learning' toys for our kids. Little to no plastic toys is the goal. Especially ones that make noise. I realize this is our first child and recognize that we've got 'dreams' that may go out the window later on. (Ah...the idealism of the new parents).
Blocks! I was talking about blocks!
About a year ago I saw these dreamy blocks on the MOMA web-site. I've been in love ever since. And I'm secretly jealous that I saw these on a popular blog as well. Blast it! I thought I was so cool for having found these unique blocks. It was my little secret. I know. I'm lame. But here they are:
Aren't they beautiful??
And because I LOVE these blocks, they, naturally, are expensive. I want them for myself. And I don't feel right about my kid, much as I love him, drooling (etc.) on a set of $120 blocks. Sigh.
Oddly enough, since I've had these on my mind, I'm seeing some similarities in other things I come across. Perhaps there's a pattern here, eh?
Like Mary Blair. Love.
Every trip to Disneyland I realize just how much I love the outside of this ride. Thanks Mary.
And today I found this guy.
And he's pretty dang cool too.
One more and I swear I'll stop!
Found this guy a couple years ago. And anyone who wants to buy me a print for Christmas is more than welcome.
Am I crazy or am I really seeing some major similarities here? Or maybe I've finally tapped into an actual style I like. (gasp)
It's amazing what a simple 'Christmas shopping' conversation does to my brain. Happy art-ness!
