Stretch those necks! A giraffe's spotted coat may help protect the animal in the wilds of Africa, but it also makes for great nursery design inspiration. Forty-nine years ago, squeak toy Sophie the Giraffe made its way into wee hands and now kiddos can delight in their lair outfitted in her likeness. Check out some of our favorite pieces.
I've always swooned over the Jonathan Adler Giraffe Lamp, and he's done it again with his new Giraffe Sconce ($195). Something about the little giraffe head used as a finial sticking out of the paper shade just makes my heart go pitter-patter. The sconce is available with the giraffe facing left or right, so you can buy two to frame a piece of artwork and have them looking at each other. I'd love to use them against some graphic or textured wallpaper. What do you think?
With springtime coming up, I've been scouring my fave shops for some cool and light tees to wear when the weather gets warmer. Since I hardly ever have time to shop, between work and spending QT with North and his BFF's at the doggie parks, I usually reserve shopping time for weekends or online. Thankfully, being the animal lover that I am, there are tons of goodies out there that will allow me to display my love for the animal kingdom any time I want. Cruising over Urban Outfitters' latest duds, I saw that they had a number of creature-inspired looks that got me on my own PetMarking mission for themed tee shirts. Like this Cat Eyes tee from UO ($28) . . . the purrr-fect shirt for the kitty lover in me. Dress it up with jeans and some heels for an exotic night out, or wear with shorts while running errands, it works both ways! There's lots more to see, so check out my widget of animal tees below when you read more
