Two Tiny Spots for Tiny Tots

Here’s a little Monday bonus post – because I was up to my elbows in enchiladas this weekend and (as good as they are) I just can’t look at them anymore!
Oh, to have a little corner in the world as lovely as this.  Above is a crib/dresser/changing table hybrid called “Nina’s House” from Dave Keune (spotted by me at Black Eiffel).  It is an amazing (and probably incredibly expensive) model of how to transform a tight spot into a beautiful modern nest.  Click through for one of my all time favorite baby spaces.

On the homespun end of the spectrum is this sweet space.  The mini closet is simplicity at its best and ties in so well with the adorable little clothes on the changing pad cover.  Of course the pièce de résistance is that handmade felt cradle hanging from heaven the ceiling.  Hetty over at lightbluegrey writes, “Thanks to other bloggers I’m inspired, so maybe you get inspired too?”.  Uh yes, Hetty…I get very inspired too!

These are both really cute. However, the second one definitely would not work in my house because Big Brother Bubbie would have it down from the ceiling in no time. lol. Thanks for posting

That cradle is absolutely adorable!! I’m with Jessica though, big sis would have that thing down in a heartbeat. I see a big swing for big sis!!

I totally agree ladies – I would be scared to put S in there with C running around! But I think this was a tiny makeshift nursery in the master bedroom so “little helpers” could be kept out.

It may not be practical for all of us but it’s just SO sweet.

I’m happy we had no problems with swinging or coming down from the ceiling or whatever at all!
