we picked up this magical menagerie by chronicle books at an art gallery in barcelona for my three-year old twin girls. we wanted to bring home something that we could play with together as a family and this sure did the trick. there are 20 beautifully illustrated punch-out animals by junzo terada. you simply punch out the pieces and fit them into the matching slots and create a three-dimensional animal. or i see it as a colorful and whimsical piece of sculpture for a child's room. this is great for all ages. i just ordered another set as a birthday gift for a friend's child because i liked it so much. order at chronicle books right here.
this is my creative outlet. my family and i followed our hearts to maine and moved to an old house outside of portland a year ago. when i am not taking care of my twin girls, you might find me writing little love notes to my husband, sipping on green tea, taking photos of nature's beauty and dreaming of well curated spaces. it's the simple pleasures in life that make me happy.
