Things I Like Thurs… er, Saturday.

I’ve been slacking on Thing I Like Thursdays but it’s not because I have run out of things I like.  So, I’m back at it!

TIL #1 – BUNNIES!

I decided the other day, after seeing a super cute rug with white bunnies and orange carrots on it, that bunnies and carrots would be the theme of the nursery for Baby Plum.  It is different, it is mostly orange, which is kind of gender neutral, it isn’t overdone, and I didn’t find it annoying.  So I started my search for non-feminine or silly orange and bunny nursery items.  I do realize how ridiculous that sounds.

I realized only later that perhaps I was attempting to relive a bit of my magical childhood.  I had the most amazing rabbit wallpaper in my nursery/childhood bedroom.  I still remember it vividly. It was brown rabbits, dressed in clothes, living life in a little village.  Sounds weird, but it was lovely and whimsical.  My mother remembers that she just had to have it, even though it was a huge stretch financially to buy it.

So imagine my joy when I ran across a sweet little toile rabbit nursery linens (click on the images for links to the site)!  It doesn’t look anything like my wallpaper did, but it is rabbits, dressed in clothes, doing everyday activities! (Again, I do realize how wacky I sound.) It is a little expensive for me, and perhaps a little feminine if I end up with male Baby Plum, but I think it is just lovely.  I want it for my own sheets.  My husband is patient, but I think human-bunny sheets might push him over the edge…

The cuteness is overwhelming!

Coming in a close second, and perhaps more appropriately gender-neutral green, is the nursery rhyme toile, also from Carousel Designs.  Adore!
