Nursery Inspiration

Since we are in transition between Lincoln and Central City, I've been blessed to have a few days to relax and get excited about little details for baby Faeh. With my recent growing pains, the nurse told me to do my best to stay off my feet so I took advantage of this time to plan my babe's nursery.

I don't consider myself to be a master decorator, but I find a lot of joy in being creative and using my style as an inspiration. (And thankfully I have people with the decorating talent to guide me in the right direction, *cough* Shanda :)

Since I'll be decorating on a very small budget, I plan on making a lot of things myself using natural products like branches, feathers, rocks, etc. I'll be making the mobile out of hanging branches and feathers.


I plan on hanging antlers above our rocking chair and I have a wonderful sister-in-law who is on the lookout for me :)
 We found the perfect (and cheapest) crib that will fit right in with the natural theme.
 I love the idea of rocks painted with metallic gold. Again, cheap!
 Ah, the leather pouf. So expensive. I'm going to have to do some hunting to find a cheaper version.

 My favorite project will be to wrap branches with natural and metallic string and mount on the wall above the baby's crib. Such a neat way to spice up a room!


I'm having a lot of fun planning for the future and finally feeling like a baby is on the way. Though all the decorations and crafts are fun, I will be perfectly happy with a healthy baby in my arms.

Cheers, J.

If you ever need a playpen, I know this guy who used to be a carpenter. I'm married to him actually and, when we were shopping for a gift for a baby shower we went to, he saw the price of a playpen and said our no frills baby would have one made by his hands out of wood and barbed wire. Let me know if you are interested! Ha.
