I've been in major nesting mode for a couple of months now and the baby (#6) is not even due till the end of August!

I'm taking advantage of the nesting mode and trying to make the childrens rooms a more warm and inviting space. I absolutely love looking at the blog Frontier Dreams for inspiration. I noticed she has a lot of beautiful postcards that I'd like to buy, but have only been able to find a few of them like at Three Sisters Toys, etc.. Is there another source you can recommend for these postcards?

I'm also loving this display of birds she has above the alphabet letters in the following link:http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_TAygf9zwdA...h/IMG_9859.JPG Any ideas where to find these cute birdies?

There is a thread somewhere on the Mothering forums regarding playroom pics, but there are just a bunch of links. Does anyone know if there is a Flickr group or something of that nature where people post pictures of their Waldorf home?

Thanks!

Wife to sweet hubby and Mama to ds 11, ds 10, ds 8, ds 7 dd 5, dd 2, and ds 6mo.

Nicole is on here if you want to ask her directly where she got those things. Not sure of her username, but, I'd try frontierdreams. Check out A Child's Dream Come True for the post cards.

I follow her blog as well and she is truly inspirational! Her username on her is counterGOPI , I think, if you want to PM her.

Oh, and you could check out etsy for the postcards
I bought the cardholder from threesisterstoys and a postcard to display.. However I absolutely LOVE the cardholder that Nicole has on her blog (the one pictured in the entry you posted the link to.

About the birds....
the etsy shop "saraschalliol" has some similar.. not sure if I can post a link but if you want it I suppose I could PM it to you

The cards are made by Eeboo and are available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Fairies-Garden...9469623&sr=8-9

They have other cute styles, too. The birds themselves though...not sure. Maybe try Etsy as someone recommended?

You can find postcards and holders here though they may not be exactly the ones you were looking for.

Hope that helps!

That playroom thread on here is awesome, though it does take some time to click on all the links. Somebody had the coolest little teepee on there.

my toy shop on etsy.com: wooden baby keys, natural bathtub toys, wooden animals, little kitchens, waldorf dolls...also check out my blog about saving money, creating things, and natural living
