Review and giveaway (closed): A Modern Eden

Congrats to my winner: The Elwells' Weekly

As much as I hate to admit it, my kids are growing up. Very, very quickly.  And I'm having to accept that having their room decorated with all the baby decor that I chose before Ethan was born... well, it's probably going to have to change soon.  I still want the kids' room to look nice and have great personality though, and not be completely overrun with your typical cartoon characters and things like that.

So I was really excited to get to review a poster from A Modern Eden. I really like lions, so chose to review the Henry the Lion poster. Isn't is fabulous!


I was so impressed when the poster arrived. It's a beautifully screen-printed poster, on 100 lb "Banana Split" French paper. What that means is that this is not a cheap or flimsy poster, it's on nice, thick paper and is beautifully hand printed.  It measures 18 x 24 inches. This is really a piece of art for your home. If lions aren't your thing, you can also get a poster featuring Webster the Frog or one with Presley the Peacock

 We put our poster in a simple frame- and Vivian loves it!

A Modern Eden also sells tote bags. I received the Tree Icon Cotton Tote Bag

This is a nice, simple tote bag, made of 100% recycled cotton.  I really like this tote- the decoration is nice, the bag is really sturdy, and it's a great size for carrying my groceries or the kids' swimming gear- or whatever I'm carrying around! The tote bag is also available with a fun apple design.

Also available from A Modern Eden are some animal flashcards and an iPhone app that helps your child learn all about animals! I haven't been able to convince my husband to get me an iPhone, so I couldn't review the app, but it looks really cute!

Good news- one of you will win a poster of your choice! Open to US/Canadian mailing addresses.

I love that the illustrator began creating pictures of animals after the realization that he needed to fill his child's nursery!
