Lil C's Nursery debut! (have had this post for months but was superstitious about posting til she was chilling in my arms)I was inspired by twitter when we found out we were having a girl. Every time I see the twitter bird, I smile. Then I discovered cute owls (little did I know, owl themed nurseries are very popular.. and one pregnancy magazine said they were 'so 2010'... the nerve!). I bought the Pottery Barn Kids 'Hayley' bedding (above) and basically designed the room around that. Tough Guy gets credit for doing EVERYTHING in this room since I didn't want to be around the paint (or work.. who are we kidding). The Behr 'Ice Flower' paint gave the feeling of a bright blue sky, and of course it couldn't be a little girl's room without a splash of hot pink. And let's just say www.etsy.com is the best website in the world. All the framed 8x11 prints are from there. And pretty much 90% of the rest of the hanging art work.
I LOVE the built in hutch that is an original part of our house. Back when this was our bedroom, it was my makeup wall. There are some pretty pieces from Anthropologie as well (the Tree Stump Vase in the hutch, a plate hanging on the wall, and Lil C's first Anthro-frame from Aunty Becca.)
You can tell this picture, above, was before Lil C's arrival cos I'd repacked those overnight bags about 5,000 times when I was bored and waiting for my water to break...... (yup. a watched pregnant belly never boils)
HomeGoods was also an awesome resource for very good priced nursery items, as always. And the Frog Humidifier Auntie Gennylite got us is the cutest thing EVER. The Owl Bookends located in the hutch? Less than $10 for the set at HomeGoods. On Etsy, a similar set cost $60!!!
