Now that my children are out of babyhood – and almost out of toddlerhood in fact – I keep coming across the most adorable, cool or just plain practical things that don’t seem to have been around nine years ago when I was originally in the market for baby paraphernalia. At times it makes me feel old and un-hip, and I find myself thinking “If only they’d had that in my day”. Aaarrghh, what is happening to me. In my day? Where did that come from?
That said, I am still young enough to have friends having babies so I have been stocking up on ideas for baby presents. If I can’t use all these lovely, newfangled things myself, at least I can be the cool gift-giver. One gift idea I have been eyeing up for a while and waiting to have someone to give one to is a Scrabble Art Frame. Individually made to order in County Louth by Muireann at Say It With Scrabble, these frames are a gorgeous addition to a child’s room. With a large initial, the child’s name and the cute addition of the date of birth on a little wooden heart, these are simply adorable.
Muireann also – very cleverly – makes crossword style family frames and has even branched out into Scrabble photo frames for occasions such as weddings, First Holy Communions and the first day of school. The frames are sleek and simple and Muireann’s fabulous taste in colour schemes and patterns really makes those wooden squares stand out. I think you’ll agree.
