Take Me the Land of Nod

I love The Land of Nod.  Like borderline obsessive sort of love.  Their new catalog came in the mail a few weeks ago and I can't stop looking at it.  And after I look at the catalog I of course jump on the computer to peruse their website to be sure that I didn't miss anything good.  Which of course I did, because the website has so many more products and choices to see!  And then when I'm bored I look at the catalog again.  And then back to the computer.  It's like the predictable cycle in the "If You Give a (Mouse, Cat, Pig, etc.)" books.  My title is "If You Give a Heather a Land of Nod Catalog".  And it ends something like this - and chances are if you give her a catalog, she'll want to buy something.  Or several somethings.

It doesn't help matters that I'm in the process of decorating Addyson's "big girl" room.  Of course, I need to keep looking at the catalog and website for ideas and inspiration.  And maybe to place an order or two.  Okay, so I already placed one order.  Two if you count the one from December, but I'm going with one since it's a new year now.

Let's start with how stinkin cute The Land of Nod products are.  Cute doesn't seem to do them justice though.  I mean, really - I just want to jump right into the catalog.  Like on Mary Poppins when they jump into the sidewalk drawings.  I want to do that with my catalog.  The colors, the whimsy, the functionality - all of it appeals to me.

And how bout the clever names that they give their products?  They don't just sell rugs - they sell Magic Carpets (the non-flying edition according to their website) and the Braidy Bunch rug (no I didn't misspell that, they actually mean braidy as in braided).  And they don't just sell storage solutions - they sell I Think I Canvas bins (made out of, you guessed it - canvas!) and Bin There Done That book bins.  See?  The product names are catchy and fun, and just saying some of them makes me smile.  And who doesn't want to buy a product that makes them smile simply by saying it's name?  Maybe I'm a sucker but I think that their product naming is genius!

Take a look at some of my favorite products from The Land of Nod:
White activity table.
Who wouldn't want this for their playroom?

"And You Brought a Clip" jumbo wall clips perfect for displaying art!

"As You Wish" upholstered bed in pink zigzag fabric.

"Over the River and Through the Rug" interactive rug.
See what I mean about the clever product names?

Storage cubbies for desk top or mounted on a wall.
Those are just a few of my favorite things from the newest catalog.
