blue chickadee

Whilest, I do not have kids, I love them (and all of my friends can stop laughing now thanks). I definitely get sappy over baby clothes, nurseries, and Goodnight Moon. Thanks to some of my Charleston homies, I've been introduced to WayWay Allen and her sweet line blue chickadee. WayWay is a mother and artist, handpainting everything from totes and bloomers to colorful canvases. Her work is cheerful and bright. She's also got a fantastic blog where she shares her tasteful eye and adventures in motherhood, etc.; she also has a  shop on etsy so you can shop her wares; and she'll also do custom work if you don't see exactly what you're looking for. There is something powerful about the graphic simplicity of her designs. Her paintings can the centerpiece-or the starting point for an entire room. Love it! 

Enjoy some of my faves:

My (very close) second fave, animal cameo fabric & paint mobile.

Totes, picture frames, pillow covers!

Stunning heron (crane??) pillow covers.

Measuring chart, I believe in the artist's own home. I would do this immediately if I had kids.

Notecards and paintings

A fabric lab! I love, want one in honor of my lab!

Marine Life triptych.

And bloomers and bibs!!!!

  1. Wow, Catherine! Thank you so much for the kind words!

  2. I love the measuring chart! We just moved into a new home and my daughter is 14 months. This is a perfect idea for us!
