My Baby Arrival Hospital Door Signs!

How stinking cute are these baby arrival footprint signs?  
I got one for baby m but I'll show you mine after she arrives!

Just add a command hook on the hospital door
and you have an adorable welcome sign for your
hospital room!
I love love love mine!!!

Mendy from Make It Wonderful is so great to work with, and she even special ordered my baby pink chevron ribbon to make the sign for baby m just how I wanted it!

I also ordered this super fun painted burlap stork for the front door to celebrate baby m's arrival!

This is not mine, I ordered mine with M's name on the banner and in pink of course! I'll show it to you  when it is actually up on the door!  Mr. Stork arrived last week and is SOOOO CUTE!!  


Jenny from CutePieThis is so easy to work with as well, and will make your stork just how you want it!  I chose a pink/hot pink houndstooth fabric for my stork and she went out and found the fabric for me!!

HomeGoods Find Of The Week For The Nursery- March 2013

I needed to add some color to the nursery, so in typical last minute Shelli style, I bought a rug and some toy baskets this week!


I found them at Homegoods for around $19.99 each!
The pink, white and orange is my favorite!  Love the color and the moroccan shape!

(yes, we are in love with blabla dolls)

Little round baskets that make the bottom shelf of these side tables a little more functional 
(think breastfeeding/pumping station)
The coral double gourd lamp is HomeGoods too!

I really wanted the extra large version of the pink and orange basket for the laundry, but couldn't find it, so I found this one in a larger size.  I like the details of the natural basket, but the white and more 'apple' green woven in as well.

I originally had put the RHbaby Storyteller rug in this space, but I felt like the room needed a big color pop so....

I had a friend that ordered this rug in slate and it was SO INCREDIBLY plush and even looked expensive, so I ordered it in apple green! It hasn't arrived yet, so I will keep you posted!


I guess I have a bit of a vintage shabby moroccan 
feel to the space!
Odd mix, but I think it works!

Quite different from K's Nursery, and I think I have an affinity to green!  So bright and cheery!


Update On Baby M's Nursery!

Here is the update on Baby M's Nursery!


I'm waiting on the name art, rug and the crowns to arrive!
Baby M might be here before the last minute nursery orders!
eeeeeek!!!

PS- the rug is a STEAL right now at Rugs USA.  Free Shipping too!  Crazy!

One Time Buy, Twice The Fun!

There is definitely one immediate benefit of having two kiddos of the same gender....


Instant Wardrobe!  
It's kind of fun to re live the clothing and also use some things that didn't get worn the first go round with little K.  Thank goodness my girls will be the same season as well!!  

I just ordered the finishing touches on the nursery this week and plan to have it photographed in a few weeks along with some newborn shots of baby M.  I'll try to give you a few sneak peeks this week before I have a baby!

Touches Of Spring At The House

I got a fun little goody for our front door.  
It's a little early, but it's already up!


has some super fun designs!


I also added a few tiny touches of Easter/Spring to the kitchen just for fun, but that's about it since my world is about to be rocked with my new baby girl.


K thinks these are really cute 'blankets' for her babies.....
ummmmm


I love these tea towels with the huge lime green monogram!
(They are actually larger than they appear in this photo)

Bethany has some other fun designs in her etsy shop!

Now I want one of these.  

I had a hard time choosing between the egg and the cross.

Do you guys have some spring decor up already?
I have a week to go until it's BABY TIME!!!!!

Easter Photos with Marcie Kindred in Nashville- sign up!

Do you live near Nashville?  If so, you should sign up your little one to have pics taken with the live bunnies!  Last year Marcie Kindred did baby chicks and K was in LOVE.  She is an amazing photographer and at $55 with a cd of the edited images, you can't go wrong!


K is signed up this year to get her pics taken with the bunnies and she can't wait!!

A few faves from last year....

Nursery Progress- Crib Canopy!

I'm finishing up the nursery.  Remember when I told you I had something planned for this Serena and Lily Penny Melon Dot fabric that I got for a steal?  Well, here is what I had made.

Polka Dot Crib Canopy!
(crappy iphone pic)

See that cool basket weave fixture peeking into the pic?
Well, it blocks my canopy...ugh #designfail
sooooooooooo

I'm gonna have the hubs switch it out for this fixture downstairs and I think it will be a perfect fit for both fixtures and both rooms......hubs on the other hand, is not so psyched about it (enter sweet talk here)

I've deviated from the mood board...a little bit.  
I'm adding a few more feminine touches
Stay tuned...

Changes In The Making To K's Big Girl Room....

Sorry I've been MIA, I've been checking off the to do list before baby M arrives!  

One change we have made in the past cpl weeks, is switching out k's twin bed to a full size bed.  I looooved her adele twin bed from Restoration Baby and Child but I will use it down the road, maybe adding another and doing a twin double bedroom for K upstairs.  In the meantime, we are now using the Emerson Headboard in a full size.  What does that mean? More room for mommy and daddy and K to all hop up on the bed for night story time.  SOOOOO much nicer!  K is really liking the extra space as well!

Here's a quick snapshot from today
(railings don't look pretty but you know why they are there)

Excuse the sound machine, hamper and toy box....although this is real world I guess....
(and likely you'll find the toys alllllll over the floor, LOL)

We are on the hunt for new bedding so stay tuned!
I LOVED her bedding we had made for the twin, woh woh


I'm leaning towards some fun full bedding from Serena and Lily, have you seen anything cute lately that I should check out?
