Vintage Perfection

I adore this nursery featured on Spearmint Baby yesterday. The perfect mix of whimsical childhood dreams and vintage flair. Love. Love. Love. P.S. I bought the large alphabet puzzle at a garage sale for $3. What? What!

This is what compromise looks like …

We are in the very beginning stages of piecing together the nursery corner of our room. See that chic TV perched atop the dresser? Yep, that is what compromise between Dominic and I looks like. I would prefer to trash the TV, he would prefer it morph into a 42″ flat screen mounted on the […]

Hurry up USPS!

I decided. Well, not 100%, but enough that I ordered the Litto Kids Retro Mushroom Crib Set. I can’t wait for it to come!!! For only $90 I just couldn’t pass it up. Dominic agreed. He loves my passion for a good bargain (and hey, I do too). I’m really hoping it compliments the curtains […]

Hallelujah for Fawn & Forest

I have been on the verge of a meltdown in regard to crib bedding. Like, “don’t bring it up” kind of meltdown. It is bothering me that much. Call it pregnancy rage or something like that.I can’t find anything I like that fulfills the criteria. Criteria for crib bedding, you ask? Yes, I am that […]

Uncle of the Year & Crib Drama

Baby’s Uncle Anton has been on the safety watch. This morning he forwarded a crib recall announcement to Dominic so we could make sure our crib was safe. Before we got our crib I checked all the recall notices and we were good to go. Unfortunately, 2 days ago our Simmons crib was recalled :( […]

Petit Collage

I’m in love with Petit Collage’s artwork … like drooling over them. So quaint and beautiful! If I had an arm and a leg to spend on nursery artwork these would already be hanging on my walls.

Crib Bedding Options

One of my mom’s friends has graciously offered to sew crib bedding for our little one! I’ve stalled on picking out fabric until we knew where we would be moving too, etc.These are my most recent options … From Ikea Textiles (only available in stores) I think it would be sweet as a quilt with […]

Settling into home

Last night Dominic and I ventured to …Throughout the last week we have managed to put together quite the shopping list of random things needed for the new house. After wandering for a good hour (while making a wish list for our next trip) we gathered up all the essentials … and a few extras […]

The new house has 3 large bedrooms. One will be the master, the other will be Naomi’s (our dear friend/roommate) and the third will be the nursery/office. To create 2 rooms from the 1 I’m thinking about getting a colorful rug for the baby’s side.Enter IKEA’s Hellum rug …Dominic is an IKEA-hater. Yes, I know […]

I found this swell color while reading the most recent issue of Real Simple. Initially I thought it would work well in the nursery, but now I’m leaning more towards putting it in our bedroom or maybe an office. It is by Glidden and is called Soothing Green Tea. Just what I need for my […]
