I think decoylab's animal alphabet poster in pink and blue is just adorable. I also love ellynelly's wall decals, got some of those on my walls already!

Flora said...

I love Elisabeth Soule's pictures... and Elly Nelly's wall graphics as well, especially the fly away in the greys or blues. This give away is such a lovely idea!

Wendy said...

I rather like the storytime bookcase | double. Or maybe it's just because I could always use more storage for all of my books.

Melissa said...

I had a hard time not listing Soule's work as favourites, but looking outside her prints, I do very much love the Tetra 1 Dresser by notNeutral.

The wave desk is pretty nice.

Camilla said...

I would have to say that Elizabeth's are probably my favourite thing on the site- i've loved her work for a long time since I found her on Flickr. However I think my nephew would love this giraffe pillow as he is obsessed with all things giraffey.

dvsvskdlvkslk said...

I do love the "estela lugo | rock star chalkals", it rocks for a little boy dreaming on music and stages in his room at the countryside, guitars give him starlights in his eyes

Show & Tell said...

I don't want to create a bandwagon but I'd go for Elizabeth Soule's work, however, Nicola Druker's "i live for cars and girls T-shirt is hysterical for any little boy (or girl for that matter!).

Wendy Marijnissen said...

I totally love the baby clothes by Little Lark over at the forest finds. So original and just gorgious!

Heli said...

i think sian keegan's fabric vegetables are lovely. also one of those bauhaus optic farbmischers would be nice to have.

Saioa said...

I love "fabric radish", it is so beautiful. :)

feelfuzzy said...

kati said...

i just love fawn+forest in general because its great to have such a great resource of children's things here in portland... but i like the dress me up organic teething bonbon and the fabric scallions. and i like those prints, too! pick me please! katidimoff at gmail...

Cindy said...

i love everything, but the wall decals are very cool and a great way to impermanently add some interest to a wall.

Anonymous said...

I really adore e. soule's prints--so lovely and sweet!

Unknown said...

What a pretty name for a shop and it inspired me to head for their forest finds to check out. Lots of great stuff, but a favorite would be Paige Russell's RV vessel.

N. said...

I love all of the e.soule images, but I would especially love to own the 'Rabbit,' as we have a little bunny of our own, so any time I have a option to get a rabbit print, I have to have it!

Kristin said...

Kristin said...

My favorite is the e.soul: Deer and Cupcake photograph, no contest. It's perfectly whimsical and I want to eat the cupcake!

Anita Sarrett said...

My favorite FAVORITE might have to be Sian Keegan's work...scallions, strawberries, & radish. If I had to pick one it would probably be the group of three scallions, adorably tied up.

Anonymous said...

I love the organic woods blanket. The colors are really nice.

okorindear said...

Oh my very most favorite is the custom wish portrait. . . .I can't ever resist blowing dandylions and every single time I blow one I hear my dad saying - don't you know each little seed is going to be another dandylion. Didn't he know that was exactly what my six-year-old soul was hoping!

It would be the perfect father's day present for my lovely dad.

melanie said...

It's so hard to pick a favorite! I think the whole "Little Zoo" set would win, though, if I had to choose. Particularly the polar bear.

AshleyL. said...

oh i love those prints! my favorite thing on the website was a tie between the deer print (that is offered in this contest) and the pretty green and white mobile! too lovely! :)

Anonymous said...

I am a pretty big fan of the Tea Pod sculpture/furniture line... Awesome elements for play & imagination.

This is pretty funny but my favorite thing is the Elizabeth Soule prints! I've loved that project for a while now.

I also like the Binth pillows, just to throw in a little variety.

Oh, I have been eyeballing those beka blocks 68 pc set for quite a while now. Just a bit out of my price range, darn.

amber, theambershow said...

i love elizabeth's work!!!!

i would really like one of their organic mattresses. I got one of those "memory foam" ones, and it off-gassed for weeks. I even got a bloody nose and, probably, cancer.

I also helped destroy the earth, and I feel guilty.

LeslieP said...

I have adored Elizabeth's work since the first time I saw it, so that's probably my favorite! But I do also love the giraffe pillow. Too cute!

Hard to choose, but I like the Rooster organic pillow and the daring fox throw.

Banana-head Pancake said...

This is a hard contest considering how much I love e. soule's work AND EVERYTHING on Fawn & Forest. I think my ultimate choice may be the Window Desk + Drawers. I would feel like a million dollars if that was my desk.

Thank you for the contest!

I was gonna be *really* selfish here and say that my favorite was the Aralisa 60 rug. Or the Amenity Turtle Floor Pillow...or, okay, even that fantastic DecoyLab clock. BUT then I stumbled upon the Boodalee Trees Bedding. And my heart skipped a beat. I would love that for my son's room - think it's going on the Christmas list!
