Sheep mobile

This delicate sheep mobile (an Original Museum Mobile from Flensted in Demark, we have the Futura hanging in our office) is one of several that will eventually be hanging up in the nursery, and I bought it because of the somewhat abstract shapes and the black and white color scheme. We hung this one directly over the crib, and I imagine that we’ll soon have several more in different corners of the room just because of the zen-like way in which these things move. There’s something very peaceful about the energy mobiles bring to a setting, and that is exactly the mood I’ve tried to establish in designing this nursery. Pictures very soon, I promise!
