Notable Nursery

There are so many things to love about this nursery, found on Apartment Therapy's OhDeeDoh, the bright blue and orange color palette, the vintage finds, cloud shelves (my fave!!), the vintage toys and the practical and charming cubby! A definite must have for any nursery/child's room.

The framed artwork is an amazing focal point - I love it!

Origami Favor Boats

Great idea for a nautical shower! Purchase scrapbooking paper in the patterns of your choice from your local craft store, fold according to the directions below, and fill with candy of your choice. I'm thinking blue jelly beans!!

The flags in the middle could be assembled with toothpicks, hot glue and more colored paper. Either write or print on strips of paper your guests names, the date of the shower or a phrase from your theme - such as "Ahoy It's a Boy!".

Ahoy It's a Boy! Baby Shower Invitation Design

Here's the preliminary design for the baby shower invitation based off the bedding she picked out - with fictitious info to fill it out for right now. I think we are going to change the wording at the top from "Ahoy Mate" - to "Ahoy it's a Boy!". I may play around with the size - but 5x7 is nice because you can easily find envelopes to match it.

Greens, blues, brown and, whales, palm trees...

Loving the little origami boats from this inspirational picture of a nautical themed baby shower!

Home Library Wish List: Itsy Bitsy Yoga

This book is a definite must-have for my home library once little feet start padding through the house! I love yoga and all the relaxation it brings and have never really heard of yoga for babies - yoga for dogs, yes, but babies, no. But anything that says it will help your baby sleep longer, digest better and grow stronger - not too mention bond with mommy with something she loves to do too will be marvelous!

Will probably go check it out our library first to give it a proper look through before purchasing.
