Dreaming

So I should be studying, but instead all I want to do is surf baby stuff and nursery galleries.I already had a couple color schemes in mind for the baby's room, depending on boy or girl. Now that we know we are have a sweet little boy, my wheels have really started turning. I've pretty much decided on white furniture, gray walls (I may keep the color that's already in the room, which is a slate blue/gray color) and fun, cheery accent colors. I'm thinking turquoise, yellow and red...but we'll see where my dreaming takes me.

This week I order some yummy blue sky alpacas organic cotton yarn (on sale) for yet another baby blanket I plan on knitting. The one I'm working on now is a sweet lacy pattern in a nice apple green. It's about 1/3 of the way done. But, once I saw this blanket, I knew I had to add this to my "to knit" list:


Here are the colors I'll be making this blanket in:



The green may or may not be included...I debated about orange too, but decided I'd hit my budget with 5 yarns.

Here are a few other things inspiring my nursery ideas:

Lots of prints. Like this one:


and this one:

and this one (though not as bright of colors as I'd like):


This mobile:


This cute guy and other fun stuff found here (thanks Em):


This bookshelf:


This arrangement:



and a growing file on my pinterest here.

The baby madness has really only begun around here. Apparently its contagious too, as the grandmas and aunties are probably worse than I am. Have I researched strollers and high chairs and carseats and important functional stuff...um no. But this is so much more fun!

Yay! I'm so happy for you and your soon-to-be-here little guy. Boys are the BEST! And now with all the gorgeous grays and brights, decorating his space will be so fun! Love those alphabets too!

I'm so glad you posted your Pinterest account ;). I can now follow along with your nursery whims. I feel like I need a nursery board just for the sweetness. SO many great ideas. I love your color choices!!

Happy Weekend!

Hooray for baby madness - especially baby decorating madness!

Decorating is the BEST. I like the yarn colors...if it were me I'd swap the red for orange. I'm all about the orange. ;)

And I'm totally a Petit Collage junkie. If I ever won the lottery I'd get some of her more expensive pieces!
