Neverland: This Little Lamp Of Mine

I love vintage nursery lamps so much!
They seem to instantly transport me back to my childhood, and they make for gorgeous decoration too :) 
Here are a few that are currently in my wish list:
 
 That little lamb just melts my heart!

 I can hardly bear how cute this is...
{via}

 A classic favourite :)
{via}

 I always wanted to live in a shoe when I was little...
{via}

 I just love everything about this one...the colours, the pose, his little hat...sigh!
{via}

 This makes me wish I was their size and able to join them :)

The kitten in the wash tub plays a lullaby song while the kitten spins around...be still my heart!
{via}

 And that dozing cat turns to play 'When you wish upon a star' 
(Which is, coincidentally, my favourite melody of all time)
{via}

 I love rocking horses! This adorable lamp also plays 'La Rond', and the blocks light up!
{via}

 How sweet is this?

 This rather peculiar lamp features a tin drum, and what's more, it's double-sided! 
I think I am in love...

Read Me A Story: Il Etait Une Fois

I have been known to hold a soft spot in my heart for pop-up books, 
and this one was love at first sight...


Benjamin Lacombe's Il Etait Une Fois comprises of eight classic fairy tales (Alice In Wonderland, Pinocchio, The Sleeping Beauty, Bluebeard, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, Mrs Butterfly, and Thumbelina ) conjured up by a double-page masterly crafted mechanism.
The result is, to say the least, stunning:


Even the promo video for the book is a work of art:
