I've decided to update the kid's room. They don't know this yet, but I'm thinking of a science theme. Calder loves space, everything about the body, and Milo likes dinosaurs. Of course my first change will be the artwork and my first stop is antique print store on etsy. They have soooo many cool vintage prints to choose from. Here are a few of my favs.

kate spade Saturday

I love kate spade. I'm not necessarily the kate spade girl, but I love the brand image and quality of products. I have owned a few bags and dresses over the years, but wear them out mainly for wedding and showers. But the new 'lower priced' brand kate spade Saturday is right up my alley, although I apparently fall out of their target demographic :) Saturday feels more casual like the name implies and is at a lower price point. Recently they had a sneak peek sale of and I immediately snatched up the half circle bag in bright blue and the mod tea pot and cups. They just launched a bright yellow store in Tokyo and will be coming to New York this spring.

Okay I know it's everywhere you look, but I still loooove a pop of neon. These paper airvases were designed by Toraful Architects in Japan and you can get them at this cool Australian shop, Upon A Fold. If you're not feeling neon, they have black as well.

the greyhound of the sea

I've been meaning to post these amazing photos of the 63-foot-long fin whale skeleton at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. The room is just large enough to house the skeleton and when you walk in the whale song is playing and a huge shadow is cast along the wall. It took my breath away!
