’Open the door, my princess dear,
Open the door to thy true love here!
And mind the words that thou and I
By the fountain cool, in the greenwood
That is how the Frog is calling on the princess to keep her promise of making him her friend. Happily, she does.
Our fourth nursery decor list is inspired by the best known story from the “Picture a Tale” set of prints: “The Frog Prince”.
Enjoy and don’t be afraid sometimes to kiss some frogs!

Living with a toddler and a baby, I often feel like putting everything in order (and I was not too far from lining up some pine needles only a few weeks ago, all while reflecting on the advantages of plastic Christmas trees):
From Ursus Wehrli’s “The Art of Clean Up” via Fubiz. For more on his projects, watch his TED talk about tidying up art.
On week three of the series of nurseries inspired from the “Picture a Tale” prints, we are taking on the picture with the slightly confusing name: a fox called “The Golden Bird”. It turns out the fox is the main character of this story, the one who leads the action and helps the hero conquer all obstacles to reach his goals: a golden bird, a golden horse and a princess. The story ends in a seemingly gory, but happy way for the fox.
Browsing through Etsy, I found a whole lot of foxes. It seems like they are starting to take over the owls as the trendy nursery image (well, maybe not yet, there are still flocks and flocks of owls out there!). Here is a toned-down take on the fox nursery:
