In honor of upcoming Valentine’s Day, I would like to share how much I heart this mobile we hung in Ian’s nursery. Rob picked it out on etsy. It’s by Sqrl & Bee Studio, the creations of Melissa Frueh. It’s colorful, whimsical, and made of sustainably farmed wool. When you blow on it or push it, it looks like a bunch of dancing planets.
This fiber artist makes all different versions of this mobile. This one happens to be called: “Circus Came to Town.” I wasn’t sure if it would work well with the city/nature theme we have going on in there or jive with the backdrop fabric we got at IKEA years ago, but it’s all just crazy enough to work.
The best part about this is that Ian (six weeks old) is also starting to love it. I present an action shot:
Now that his eyes are focusing more, he can while away whole minutes in his crib gazing northward. This new hobby/fascination allows his mom to wash a dish, put on her socks, get a few gulps of coffee, or…post this blog. Woo hoo! The question is: what is our little superhero thinking as he watches this magical mobile bounce…?
I had every intention of posting a big ‘ol blog about his entire nursery…turns out I’ll be sharing in installments, for obvious reasons, ha! Hope you are all well!
