Nursery Re-Do

Sometimes things don't always work out as planned.  I'm pretty sure that was my anthem for 2014 -- but what can you do except to just go with it.

You might remember Mercer's nursery that I posted a few months ago. Well, we ended up swapping rooms. You see, Glory Maeve's room was right beside ours and Mercer's room was down the hall (and by down the hall...I mean like not THAT much further) but when Mercer was born with a heart defect we kept her in a bassinet in our room for a bit longer than expected. So when we finally did decide to move her to a crib, we still wanted her as close as possible. Make sense? We moved Glory Maeve into Mercer's nursery and Mercer got Glory Maeve's room. Long story short (or maybe that was just the long story), I'm in the processing of sprucing up Mercer's "second-hand" nursery re-do. 

I wanted to tie in the colors of the baby quilt her Grandma made for her...

...but  also stick with my favorite light and bright style. Here are few things I'm pondering over and a few things I've already clicked "purchase" on ;)

1. Foil-Stamped Art Print
2. Cinema Floor Lamp
3. Triangle Printed Pouf
4. Leka Rattles
5. Gold Dot Crib Sheet
6. Half Tone Cube Basket
7. Toy Storage Box
8. Whale Bookends 

Oh! and if you're into the foil-stamped goodness like I am, get 20% off over at Minted on foil cards, gifts, and art!


Baby Chicken Hats (Beanie or Toboggan)

Where I am from, we call it a toboggan -- but no matter how you say it, this is probably the cutest baby hat ever. Covered in my signature chicken print, this knit hat is perfect for keeping tiny heads warm! Just listed in my etsy shop for babies 0-6 months. 


Mercer's Baby Quilt

My mom pieced together this baby quilt for my daugther before she was born. We picked out the fabrics/colors together and she went to town with sewing and piecing strips together. My cousin then quilted it with wavy lines which I believe contrasts well with the linear design.


Mercer's Nursery

Like with Glory Maeve's nursery, I opted to reuse a lot of existing furniture and decoration that I already had for Mercer's room. Her nursery took over our spare bedroom and we decided to keep the extra bed in there as well. This room only has one set of windows and is probably the darkest room in our whole house, so keeping the walls white and decor light and bright was essential.



Now Available: Pink + Sunny Baby Quilt

I recently added this sweet new baby quilt to my etsy shop -- it's a pink/peach/white/cream/gold pinwheel-inspired square baby quilt with overlapping wavey line quilting, hand-sewn binding, and white backing (that was a mouth full!). It's super cheery and sunny! Enjoy..


Nursery #2

My second daugther is due in just a few short weeks so we've been in the process of converting our guest bedroom/office into a second nursery. Although I love daydreaming about a beautifully decorated room for the bundle, I've found myself repurposing so many things that I already owned to create a simple, sweet little space. There are still a few things that need to be finished but I thought I shared a few photos of the progress..


Now Available: Aqua Triangle Baby Quilt

I recently added this triangle baby quilt to my etsy shop and I just love the colors in this one! It's a random half-triangle pattern with horizontal quilting lines and hand sewn binding. (update: SOLD!)



I have a small addiction to making bibs...
