Nursery decor...

Oh my. Decisions, decisions. Since the day after we found out we are having a girl, i've been thinking about nursery decor. I have criteria to start with.
There will be the following:
  • No Characters. Of any kind. No Winnie the Pooh, no Princesses. No thank you.

  • Not much pink, and even less purple...

  • A comfy upholstered chair. Not a la-z-boy. But one that gldes/rocks and maybe swivels.

  • A dresser that Dave needs to re-finish with new hardware.
I found these curtains at Z Gallery, and am thinking 'jumping off point'? And the lamp in the photo?...Love it...and found it on
Storytime, Best Chair glider. It was SO comfy! (In another fabric)

An ABC print from Etsy...

Now i just need to find some CUTE white crib bedding, or a pattern that will compliment the decor...any ideas?

You know it's been a while when...

You have to re-type your username/password 4 times because you forgot which one it was! Duh!

So on to better's been confirmed (and if you're on my FB or a personal friend, this is OLD news....

It's a GIRL!
We are excited to have a girl on the way!
I think that when we found out:
a. I was initially a bit shocked (why? who knows. I knew I was pregnant and didn't have my heart set on a boy...I guess reality just set in!)
b. I started to get excited for all things girly! The ideas started swirling in my head, and I felt like I could really plan for the future. Strollers, nursery deocr, names, cute clothes...the works!
And in other breaking news...I stumbeled upon some websites I don't know how I didn't know about before.
I was on a blog I enjoy getting ideas from, and saw these member only sights that offer daily deals at discounted prices. And I mean good stuff! Like what you ask? For example, today at Hautelook, Stila Makeup and Joes Jeans are discouted and available for sale.
On Joss and Main Analon bakeware is on sale, and the Foundary has Calphalon! Sweet!
