Today, Maurice Sendak, author of Where the Wild Things Are (1963), died at age 83 in Connecticut due to complications from a stroke. Although for some reason I did not have his books growing up, I read them over and over to my own boys. I always savored the illustrations in this one, and really enjoyed the silliness of Into the Night Kitchen (1970). I put together a few decorating ideas inspired by these wonderfully creative tales. RIP Maurice Sendak, storyteller.
I don’t have any bunny rabbits ’round my house, but they’re awfully cute. My friend bought the most adorable bunny for her daughter. Live! It snuggles and practically purrs. Who knew they could make such great house pets? Since Easter is coming up, I thought you might be interested in seeing where you can pick up some less intrusive, stylish bunny objets, for you, your kids, or a friend.
So, have you decided you should get a wall sculpture? Can be cheaper than a painting (or not) and certainly are textural. I still haven’t taken one of mine out of the box – you might just want to make an offer on it. There are lots of sources for wall sculptures, both vintage and new . . .
