Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but this was my first week back at work and, well, I’ve been on a bit of an emotional roller coaster to which I think pretty much any working parent can relate. But, instead of writing a whole woe-is-me post (and getting even weepier than I already am), I thought instead I’d share some shots of my sister’s nursery from our visit a couple weeks ago.
Now, this nursery is far, far superior to my own (see Mini B’s nursery here), so it’s a good thing that Mini B is too young right now to really notice. Although, maybe her lack of sleep since returning from Texas is her own way of protesting the inferiority of her room? Guess I’ll have to wait until she starts communicating with actual words instead of drool to really find out. In the meantime, let’s share some rad nursery shots. I haven’t actually cleared this with my sis, but I’m going to go ahead and assume I have the, well, the go ahead.
In a word, er, actually a short phrase, her nursery totally kicks my nursery’s butt. And then some.
And not only was it super cute and all styled and everything, but it was also crazy organized. And I thought I was anal (just kidding sis–love you!).
I loved that little bookshelf in the corner that was just oh-so-neat-and-tidy. So much so that I took close-ups of each shelf. Ya’ know, just in case I want to full on copy her later.
And the artwork was pretty amazing too. The big pieces were picked out by my bro-in-law and I have to give him mad props for a job well done.
They’re both by artist Todd Goldman. I liked them so much that I’ve actually bought one of his pieces from eBay (surprise Mr. Bunches!), but I haven’t received it yet. Once I do and get it framed, you know I’ll post about it.
My sister also put together a mini gallery wall in the room . . .
A few of these are etsy finds, and one (the little ducky) is actually original art done by my sis herself. Talented, eh?
I also loved the mirror above the changing table.
It was apparently a Homegoods find. Seriously?! I never have that kind of luck at Homegoods.
Another idea I’ll be
borrowing stealing from my sis is her choice of a clothes hamper for her little guy. Isn’t this bag adorable?
It’s from Snuggybaby on etsy. Of course, the store is currently out of that pattern, so I’m in a bit of a holding pattern at the moment. Grrr.
Her crib sheets are also beyond stylin’. Don’t you love that we’re both chevron fans?
So there you have it: my nephew’s nursery. Mini B was more than a little envious, but she hid it well while assisting me with the picture taking . . .
Oh, and just because I can’t show the nursery without showing the proud occupant of the nursery, here’s a shot of the little guy.
I mean come on! Couldn’t you just eat him up?!?!
