When designing our daughter's nursery, we wanted something classic, yet unique and modern. Something that she could grown into. Of course, we purchased the convertible crib, and used things we already had for accents. It was ok, but not great. There were still details missing. When we came came across these vintage alphabet-blocks at our grandmother's house, they were perfect: a spunky filler, and a nice alternative to spelling her name out across the wall. A good source for wooden alphabet blocks is here.
