Surprisingly, to us at least, we had a really hard time finding baskets for the nursery. Either we found a color we liked in the wrong size, or found the size we needed in the wrong color. Do you know why they call it The Container Store and not The Perfectly Sized and Colored Basket Store?
Hint: they don’t have a large variety of baskets.
We finally found something we could work with at the Land of Nod. They had a pretty large selection of baskets in a wide range of colors and sizes. Of course the ones we chose were out of stock, but luckily we got started early and had plenty of time. We decided to get grey baskets and found sizes that fit pretty well into our IKEA furniture.
Either the internet has just started going crazy over babies or I have just started to notice it since I have become totally immersed in all things baby. I’d say that it’s a toss-up.
Here are some particularly impressive and cool baby links
- World’s Best Father photo gallery – A guy who has found creative and humorous ways to document the bond between a father and his daughter.
- Wengenn in Wonderland – While she’s not the only one who does this, I think she does a pretty remarkable job at it.
- Welcome to Dinovember – This has since become a Facebook fad that is poorly executed but this guy does it right and captures the essence perfectly when he says “Childhood is fleeting, so let’s make sure it’s fun while it lasts.”
And finally, I love this idea so much that I cannot wait to steal it!
