Birds of a feather flock together...

We are ecstatic about some of the latest entries to the Small Kids, Big Color contest on Ohdeedoh... one of our very favorite places to scroll through each morning with our cup of coffee. This room for a baby on the way in California has a homespun feel but remains uncluttered & cheerful. Our favorite element is the natural branch mounted on the wall holding fabric birds.

This reminded us of an art installation we spotted at the Crow Collection of Asian Art in Dallas which had origami cranes hanging from every inch of a hallway ceiling with fishing line. We immediately envisioned something similar for a children's room or nursery and later thought it would be a nice jesture to have friends help fold the decorative paper birds during pre-baby festivites such as a shower. Pre-cut sqares of paper with fun motifs can be used to decorate place settings, then guests can scribble special wishes to the little one on one side before folding; making a cherished statement piece made entirely by your closest friends & family.


  1. Do you know where I can find the fabric birds?

  2. I believe they are homemade by the homeowner.
