My favorite room in the house. Right now. Vintage and new. Heirlooms, silver and new treasures alike. Black, creamy, dreamy white, sage green and tolie. Odes to our "birdie", "tweet, tweet...,"
Lots of good memories in the nursery, my last baby... gone are the late night feedings and diaper changes, the nesting preparations, the planning and plotting for just the right space, neat and tidy all in its place. My baby turned toddler...I love you Christian and I have loved the memories made in this nursery...the best is yet to come!

Just for fun here is a shot of Charlotte and her buddy Noah at the Zoo...we visited with the animals 2 days before our vacay with all of Bryan's family (22 of us!!!) to SC...a good time was had by all but it is soooo good to be home!
Lots going on here...besides the stuff that goes along with returning from a trip, a kid's laundry from camp (can I get a grosss.......!!!!!) and a dining room table still filled with birthday "stuff" we decided (I decided) that we should paint the entire playroom (our finished basement) - white, which of course involves sanding first and then priming and then...you know how it goes - never easy! After much debate I arrived at a "scheme" if you will...all white with blues and reds - but muted, thinking french ticking, toile and some black and tan mixed in. It had to be gender neutral, fit for 3 kids that span 7.5 years and Mama (and Daddy) had to like it too...nothing too "cutesy" or theme-y, ya know? So, we are headed in a french-country-Paris -(think Madeline or Babar meets the antique stores and PBK...) old-school kind of look - wood toys, muted red wagon, ticking floor pillows, chalkboards, etc...oh and since its 2 boys against 1 girly-girl in that play space, Charlotte will have her own pinky corner for dress-up and sparkles, her dolls etc...so, can you picture it? No?...OK, just trust me its gonna look good when I am all done! I have lhad ots of fun collecting accessories and thrifting and cleaning-out, all in an effort to get this room pulled together...so, I included a few peek pics (of stuff I have picked-up) but then you'll just have to wait and see the finished product!
Other pics and posts to come...
