Pretty Giveaway! Growth Chart from Kim’s Sister

Pretty Giveaway! Growth Chart from Kim’s Sister

I’m super excited to be hosting my first ever giveaway, and it’s a good one! Do you remember the gorgeous canvas growth chart I used in S’s room? Well, I asked Etsy seller Kim’s Sister if she would be interested in offering one up for my blog readers, and she said yes. Yay! I should note that my growth chart was a custom order and is missing the bottom six inches. If you win, your growth chart will reach all the way to the floor. {The Brimfield Growth Chart by Kim’s… View Post

Trip Report: Laguna Beach

Trip Report: Laguna Beach

The past few months have been crazy, people. Baby E was born in February (as you know), we had family visiting till mid-March, we spent most of April in the UK, we moved house in May, and we just got back from a week in California. Both kiddos have now met their grandparents, uncles and auntie and all six of their living great grandparents, which is awesome. Still, I am more than happy not to have to get on another plane for the foreseeable future! We rented a cute little cottage in Laguna Beach while we… View Post

Look For Less: Anthropologie Towels

Look For Less: Anthropologie Towels

I recently splurged on these scrumptious towels from Anthropologie: {Perpetual Blooms Towels – $8.00-$36.00 – Anthropologie} Gorgeous, right? I saved up for these babies a good ten months and bought a set for myself and the Mr in March. Then I spied these at Target yesterday (I don’t remember exactly how much they cost, but I know they were significantly cheaper)… {Floral Towel – in stores only – Target} And these at World Market… {Tamara Sculpted Bath Collection – $9.99 to $14.99 – World Market} I am kicking myself just… View Post

Oeuf Sparrow Crib

Oeuf Sparrow Crib

Check out my new crib. {Oeuf Sparrow Crib in grey} Initially we were just going to use S’s crib for the baby, but we’ve been finding out all kinds of horrible things about engineered wood and off-gassing and the long-term health effects it can have on babies, so we decided that it wasn’t worth the risk and have forked out some big ones for this solid birch, not-made-in-China beauty.  I just wish we’d known about it when S was born! Or before I upholstered the bed for his big boy… View Post

Art for Girls’ Rooms

Art for Girls’ Rooms

I posted the other day about all the art I’d considered when I put the big boy room together (read more here). Well, I also found a load of gorgeous stuff for our baby girl’s nursery too. Who, by the way, is due today. I’m scheduling this to post ahead of time, so maybe she’ll even be an outside baby by the time you read this! (Edit: She’s not. Bah.) Anyway, if I’d had space, I’d have used all of these, but as it was, these were the ones that got… View Post
