Daddy Surfs 1: 1933 Bertha Sander Baby Furniture

You just never know. You go along for a while, thinking you've got the hang of things, got it figured out. And then from one moment to the next, you slowly realize you are in wild, uncharted territory, and you have no idea what's going on.

I could be talking about parenting, but I'm actually talking about blogging [about parenting]. I've been a little bit bored this week; not a lot to write about; the kid's driving us crazy lately with a lot of "No!" this and "No way, Jose!" that.

Anyway, within an hour this morning, I clicked my way into the most bizarrely fascinating daisy chain of child culture topics I could never have imagined. Each one is an interesting post in itself--hell, half of them would be good books/movies/dissertations/miniseries/bestsellers--but the sheer serendipity of this otherwise unconnected sequence of finds is freaking me out. So I'm going to post each of them in turn, in the order in which I found it. I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I do.

First up was Andy's post on Reference Library of this photograph: a 1933 nursery interior by Bertha Sander, a Wiener Werkstatte-trained designer. Decent stuff; for me, the crib wheels are the big win.

It came from the Royal College of Art's Design Interior Database, where I surfed across the next piece.
