For Marlo’s room

These are limited edition prints by Heather Ross that I plan to frame and hang in Marlo’s room. (Unfortunately they are sold out, but Heather has a line of fabrics at Purl Soho.) The only things in her room are her crib, a rug, and a rocker. That’s it. I’m waiting to jump into the design of her room until she transfers from the crib to a normal bed (you know, WHEN WE ALL DIE), so right now I’m in the collecting phase. I’ll get to point to these animals and say, “See? They are sleeping. Pretend you’re a raccoon. WAIT. FORGET I SAID THAT.”
