Friday's Fab Finds...Cuteness for Little Boys

very scary lion by wildthingsofnoosa
So...Father's Day is coming up...and I don't have a list of gift ideas for Fathers today. (That would make sense if I did, wouldn't it?) But this fun collection does have something to do with dads...or parenthood, anyway. My sister-in-law and two of my best friends are all expecting baby boys this summer, so in honor of them, I thought I'd dive into the world of cute stuff for baby boys on Etsy. (I wish I could buy every single one of these things for my nephew on the way! It's the thought that counts, right, Tarah? Ah, to be independently wealthy.) Also, today's my sweet husband's birthday...and he was a baby boy I guess this in honor of him too! Here are some of my favorite things:

funky penguin

tropical panda

It's killin' me...these are so cute...I want one just for me! (And I'm not usually a stuffed-animal sorta girl.) Australian artist's shop wildthingsofnoosa is filled with handmade goodness for both girls and boys...plenty of cute little creatures and adorable apparel.

H is for Handsome print

S is for Sharp print

This is part of a vintage alphabet series. They've made me smile since I first set eyes on them. Wouldn't the little man's nursery be so very sharp and handsome with the addition of these prints? By Portland-based Etsy shop Swellkid.

Hi I'm new here onesie

Ha ha! This is funny. I like it. Sweet embroidered onesie by Etsy shop 4myangels.

woodgrain owl

Just look at that face! Just look at that wing, casually resting on that soft pillow. Look at those eyes! Is it just me, or can you actually hear this guy saying, "Please take me home"?! By talented Etsy artist iheartnorwegianwood.

G is for Giraffe block printed print

I actually featured this artist's cupcake in last week's Friday's Fab Finds post about cupcakes...but the other thing that immediately caught my eye in her shop was her alphabet series (by sheridesthelion) and I just had to post them as part of today's collection. They are so graphic and yet sort of retro looking, they would be perfect for any little man's stylin' pad.

Punk rock red baby onesie gift set

Punk rock white baby onesie gift set

Rock on! I saw the white one, but then I saw the red one...if I had a baby boy he would so be in that red outfit ASAP! The perfect gift for a baby boy...especially if his mom or dad was an aspiring rock star... or even just a wannabe. :-) By cool Etsy shop lowleepop.

That's it for today, folks. Thanks for sticking with me while I took a blogging break for a couple of days! It was just the right amount of breathing space to get caught up on a few things. I hope you have a fabulous weekend, and don't forget to enter my giveaway before midnight on Saturday, June 7. I'll be back Monday to announce the winner!
