Halloween is a little over a month away. I don’t know about your house but it’s a conversation that is brought up often. Of course each time they change their minds of what they want to be, but we are all excited.
While on Pinterest today I found Laurie’s Tutu Boutique and I fell in love with the adorable scarecrow costumepictured above. Laurie’s etsy shop has some other really adorable costumes that could be perfect for your little one. Like this little butterfly…
And this costume would be a winner in my house, Rapunzel. It is one of our favorite movies these days and we’ve watched it several times. What a beautiful costume!
Be sure to head over to Laurie’s Etsy shop to see more amazing costume’s and tutu’s for this coming Halloween.
I have been a bit addicted to Pinerest lately. Have you been on there? If you haven’t, you must. But warning and can be very addicting! I could spend hours on there. Anyways, while browsing on there I found this beautiful nursery which was featured on Project Nursery. I fell in love with it from the colors to the crib to the natural light of the room. Really beautiful!! Of course it was too beautiful not to share with all of you too.
The Design Inspiration:
The original inspiration came from the fabric for the curtains. The designer, tenna travis design studio, purchased it for a previous project and never used it. She loved the neutrality and modern pattern. She then found the fabulous oversized green/white floral pattern fabric and had a slipcover made for the rocker. Next, the gorgeous shade of turquoise she used on the vintage crib, found for only $50!
I adore the graphic print on this chair, beautiful!
And this “closet”! Love it! It’s a baby boutique at one end of the bedroom. The designer simply hung a polished nickel curtain rod from the bottom of industrial shelving and poof the closet was born.
Every detail in this nursery is amazing. Be sure to see all the images and the tips the designer has to creating your own nursery like this at Project Nursery.
I recently ran across a super cute and adorable blog called live the fancy life. Jessica is behind this super cute blog and she just welcomed a baby boy into her world. Before the little guy arrived her and her husband (and family) worked very hard to create a nursery with a modern, clean and minimal design with neutral walls and lots of splashes of color throughout.
The bookshelf is one of my favorite aspects of the nursery and happens to be one of Jessica’s too. Not only is it filled with 52 books, yes 52, it was built and painted by one of her co-workers! Some of my favorite books fill the shelves too. Dr. Seuss!
They designed the modern nursery with a color palette of grey, lime green, light blue, aqua and white. They wanted a room that was peaceful and serene, but that was still good for a child. They wanted to fill it with inspiration, color and interest but keep it simple and clean at the same time.
Jessica spent several hours putting the lanterns together, finding just the right height, balance and number of lanterns. It’s another one of my favorite touches she added to her little guys nursery.
And this little zebra is just too cute! I love him!
Jessica has a lot more photo’s of her modern nursery and where she found all the adorable things in this fabulous nursery. So run over and see. And Jessica, I hope your little guys loves his nursery now that he has arrived into this world.
I came across the most adorable baby announcements ever! Have you heard of Hello Lucky!!?? They are a specialty letterpress printer and design studio and have been creating wedding invitations, greeting cards and personalized stationery since 2003. The founders are sisters and best friends Eunice and Sabrina Moyle. They co-founded Hello Lucky in 2003 with a vintage Vandercook press in Eunice’s garage.
They have several beautiful things but I absolutely adore the birth anouncements. The Dino Birth Announcements (pictured above)are too cute!
But this sweet elephant announcement is also on my list of favorites.
And I love the little lion announcement!
What’s your favorite? You have to go and see all of the Baby Announcement’s on Hello Lucky!
