easy globe makeover

  I've been making over a few of my globes lately, and this one is the latest! I'll add a pic at the bottom of my Death Star! It's awesome if I do say so myself. ;) I started with this one-love the size and that it's made of metal, but the colors weren't really blending in with my new decor.

Peter Pan Baby Boy Nursery

Peter Pan Baby Boy Nursery

Almost the minute (ok, at least the same day) that I found out I was having a boy this time around, I started dreaming up his nursery...browsing Pinterest for ideas and themes, of course. I pinned a bunch of random nurseries and realized there was a bit of a theme...I liked the colors grey & green, rustic wood accents, and adventure/woodsy … [Read more...]

A little master bedroom redo was in order! I fiiiiinally recovered my headboard! It was a basic brown, which I was getting pretty sick of. We attached the three separate pieces and I recovered it as one piece. I picked out this floral fabric which I ADORE. It worked out perfectly!

vintage valentine wreath

I bought a bunch of these vintage valentines on Etsy and Ebay for my vintage themed valentines day party this year-but I was having the hardest time figuring out how to display them! First I started with a simple garland, with the valentines layered on top of doilies, then took that apart and did a garland with just the valentines....then took that … [Read more...]

It worked great on felt too, I made a … [Read more...]

Charlotte’s big girl quilt (or, the start of it)

Since Ava kind of has dibs on her nursery, soon the girls will be sharing Sadie's room. (eek!! Ok deep breaths....she'll do fine with the transition to a big girl bed....she will still nap.....please oh please still nap, Charlotte...) So of course this means one thing....a new quilt!

Finally, it's here....the moment you've all been waiting for! haha...ok maybe the moment I've been waiting for! The nursery reveal!
