Oh Happy Day!

Isn't that what it looks like he's saying? I think he is!
Elizabeth of Creative Breathing has inspired me to start collecting these sweet wooden Nursery items by Irmi.

I showed a post recently of the two switch plates I have by Irmi.

The most popular item made by Irmi though, was their lamps.

So sweet Elizabeth sent me this gorgeous pink Irmi lamp to add to my collection! She also sent me a bag of Irmi pieces!

Some of the dolls were in separate pieces so I had a puzzle to put together when they arrived! Hopefully, I have put them together right!


My favorite are the two clowns. They are so cute!

My Mom found this lamp at a flea market just right after I received my package from Elizabeth.

So now I have a collection of these sweet pieces! This lamp is a train and has a night light behind the caboose and the little dog winds up to play music!


I hope you have had a wonderful weekend!

I just adore Irmi!! Aren't they just the sweetest pieces?!!? I have seen lots of adorable lamps on Etsy and eBay. We just found out we're having another baby next May and I've been thinking about decorating the nursery with a few Irmi creations. : )

How absolutely adorable, adorable! So sweet. The lamp is so great. I love all the little figurines. They actually remind me of things when my adult children were babies and toddlers.

They are cute Lindsay but I must admit the lamps are the ones I like the best...especially the ones in the last photo.

Those are so sweet. I have never heard of them before. I have seen Christmas ornaments. Are they related to these? That yellow train-lamp is fantastic.

barbara said...

Hi, Lindsey! I have the same train lamp, but in primary colors. (I think I like yours better! Doesn't that revolving dog just make you want to laugh?) I thought mine was Imri but it's got a Nursery Plastics sticker on the bottom - do you know anything about the company? Just wondering.

I remember those lamps from my childhood. I never had one, but remember them in friends bedrooms. I never knew they were Irmi, however. So I have learned something here today. They are all so cute ~ you can't help but smile when you see them.

You lucky! Those are the absolute cutest things!

Hi Lindsey,

Those Irmi pieces are adorable! I really like that lamp. Have you ever been to Disneyland? The Irmi dolls remind me of the dolls you see from different countries on the "It's a Small World" ride.

Have a great week!

THE HOME THAT LOVE BUILT said...

Oh how sweet these are and they will make an adorable collection.
Have fun!

Blessings to you,

creative breathing said...

Lindsey! You have made my day. Tell you what, did I send you the little people on a pink candy cane? They go to each of the little animals. They can easily be glued right back on. I had over 20 of these lamps I took apart for the figurines on my pincushions. Really though, what could you do with so many lamps! I think they can be crafted into the cutest things. Can't wait to see what you do with them! E

She'sSewPretty said...

Me too! Me too! I wonder how many I passed by at the thrift store before I saw them on E's blog. I love the irmi lamp I bought for $6 at the thrift store. It always makes me smile and has me on the hunt for more!

Pieceful Bits said...

I love Irmi since Elizabeth introduced us all to it!
I have purchased one light switch with the tin soldier. I love it.
You now have such a great collection.
