15 February 2010














Because y'all might ask, I'm going to try to be one step ahead of you this time! :)

:: The blocks (are these not the CUTEST blocks ever) were made by my sweet and (very!) talented friend Marissa. She made them for the kids (really me) :) and they arrived (with other fantastic gifts!) in the mail this weekend. Thanks again, Mis!

:: The butterfly mobile was inspired by a $79 version at pottery barn kids but Ry and I worked together and made it for about $4. I bought the 100 butterflies here and used this tutorial as a (very rough) guide. Here's another quick way to make a mobile/chandelier.

:: The pinwheels were made using this tutorial from Portobello Pixie. (FUN, easy project!)

:: The crib bedding (bumper and skirt), valance and Oliver's duvet were made using fabrics from Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks and Little folks line and were designed and made by yours truly :) (I used a plain white $12 bumper from IKEA as my form for the bumper).

:: The friendly pink hippo keeping Hazel's crib warm is a gift from her brother, found at IKEA.

:: Those adorable, itty bitty crocheted booties were a gift from my Mama, custom made by and purchased from this fantastic Etsy shop in France. (These are going to the hospital with us!!)

:: The cute giraffe in the basket in the last photo was a sweet gift to Hazel from Heather. She makes them in her Etsy shop Sweet Pea Boutique.

:: The paint color (so sorry I forgot to include this initially!!) is "Teal Zeal" by Behr and available at The Home Depot. We love it!

The colors are just INCREDIBLE, Raechel! All the little details you have put into this room have come together just beautifully. Very soon you will have two very blessed kiddos all cozy in their lovely room. :)

Made my day just letting us all take a peek inside--thank you!

Prayers and blessings, girl...
