french changing table (nursery rhyme)
There was an old lady
who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children
she didn’t know what to do…
Regardless of how many children you have, there will be space for them all on this Art For Kids french changer in nursery rhyme motif. That is if you change them one at a time…
nursery rhyme motif table set
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again!
If you had set poor Humpty up at the nursery rhyme motf table set he would have had a much better time of it, I’m sure. It comes with two chairs, so there is only space for one of the kings to sit with Humpty, but I’m sure they could figure it out…

Said Simple Simon to the pieman,
“Indeed I have not any.”
A shame indeed to not have a penny when in need, but the morals unfold as Simple Simon’s story unfolds. You can share them with your child on this hand colored nursery rhyme – Simple Simonw by Green Frog Art.

Have you started your spring cleaning yet? With the weather holding so much rain, there has been plenty of time to purge, clean and organize your home this year. If you haven’t started yet, here are a few helpful hints to get you on track;
Spring Cleaning 101
In the Bedroom:
baby hangers – white satin with blue dot ribbon
- Discard any clothes that are worn or beyond repair. Donate any clothes that you have not worn in the last year or that no longer fit you. If you are hoping to eventually get back into your skinny jeans, do yourself a favor and reward yourself with new jeans if you make that milestone.
- Once you have purged your closet, make sure it stays organized by installing a closet system with shelves for sweaters, shoe storage, multi-level poles to maximize storage space and proper hangers. The metal hangers you get from the dry cleaner stretch and mishape clothes, so add them to the toss pile!
- Another super tip is to place all your hangers in the same direction and turn them around once you have worn the item. That way when you check your closet later, you will know what has been worn and what hasn’t!
- Dust dressers, wipe lights, wash walls and windows. Don’t forget to wipe baseboards as well
In the Bathroom:
hand painted waste basket-retro dot
- Go through your medicine cabinet and discard any expired medications. Clean the inside and outside of the medicine cabinet
- Thoroughly scrub tub and/or shower enclosure
- Reseal any grout lines
- Recaulk bathtub and/or shower enclosures
- Launder shower curtain
- Empty garbage and clean waste basket
In the Kitchen:
personalized dishwasher bottles
- Discard any items in the fridge that are past their expiry date. Toss any items in your freezer that may have freezer burn or have been there too long
- Clean all shelves and bins in the fridge. Place a box of baking soda in your fridge to help absorb food smells
- Pull out fridge clean behind it. Vacuum fridge coils to improve fridge efficiency
- Thoroughly clean stove, including burners and oven
- Pull stove forward and clean behind it. Wipe down sides of stove while you are at it
- Clean other small appliances, like toasters, microwaves, coffee makers
- Clean cupboards, inside and out. Don’t forget the kitchen drawers
- Wash counters and floor
- Inspect dishwasher and clean trap in it. Run it empty with vinegar or baking soda to sanitize. Wipe outside of dishwasher
- Refill dishwashing soap dispensers
In the Playroom:
storage console traditional americana
- Toss any toys that are broken or damaged
- Purge any toys that are no longer actively played with. Collect them for a garage sale or donation
- Store some toys to create a rotation of them. This helps to renew interest in toys that would otherwise become dated and mundane
- Thoroughly clean floors, walls, baseboards, door knobs, drapes and light fixtures
- Empty toy shelves to wash and disinfect them
- Organize toys into bins, shelves and other storage receptacles. Using labels helps children to remember where to put the toys once they are done playing with them
- This room is an excellent place to have your children assist in. Play music to make it more fun. Encourage them to get rid of items, by informing them they will receive the money from any items sold in potential garage sales. Remind them that a tidy room is more fun to play in, as then there is more space to play with the remaining toys.
Happy Spring Cleaning. Don’t forget your rubber gloves!

We even have cannes cannon grey fabric that you can wrap around anything you want. Well, we usually sell it for our Taylor Scott furniture collection, like chairs, loveseats, loungers and ottomans, but you get the point. The fabric swatches are a mere $1, and there’s a few greys to choose from, so take a look.
Grey is a classic color that will never go out of style, but is certainly seeing a resurgence today. Thanks for the help E.L. James!
