Jed's Birds on A Branch & Bedroom

Now that Jed is almost ONE.... I thought it would be fun to post some pictures of his bedroom... I can't believe that it has taken me this long to do this!

Anyhow, without further a-do... here is the Birds on a Branch...
it's our little "family tree"!

I love the look of the fabric framed in glass, the clean white edges of the frame makes it crisp and gives it a little pop!

And while I am at it, I thought I would show you the rest of the room, come along for a little tour with some details about the room, I have to tell you about some of my deals, cuz' I LOVE A good deal... 

I painted the main wall with a criss-cross pattern, which I LOVE, but I am not going to lie- it was a PAIN!!! But... the finished product is just what I was looking for! I also got this custom made GIANT letter J online and painted it with white craft paint. The lamp and changing table were re-used from my daughters room. Don't you love the argyle blanket (from Land of Nod, thanks to my mom!) and the darling sock monkey from our sweet neighbors!

I love a white crib and found a killer deal on the bedding. I found the bumper (which has that same criss-cross pattern on it) at the Pottery Barn Outlet for $12.99!!!! What a steal!! I made the bed skirt from some fabric I found for $1.99 and my mom found the vintage wooden mobile at a Thrift store in mint condition for $8! What a screaming deal!! I splurged on a grey and white sheet from Dwell Studio, it was more than everything else combined- $32!

 DO you spot my $5 garage sale repainted rocking chair?? Ain't it cute??
One can of red spray paint brought him back to life!

And I got this awesome print off of Etsy, it originally said "You are My Sunshine, my only Sunshine" but I had her change it up for me with a verse that I have prayed for my little man since he was in my tummy. And I love that it hangs over him as he sleeps. I didn't have a matting and didn't want to spend a lot of money on one, so I used a scrap piece of fabric I had left over from the crib skirt that I made. 

And that's just about it. That's Jed's room for now!

Swim Suit Edition

Over the summer, I had the chance to make a little Swim Suit Gallery for a little girls bathroom. I bought frames, removed the glass and lined them with white fabric that had tiny little turquoise polka dots, then I sketched and cut out some very hip 3-D swim wear... here's how they turned out! 

One of these days I will get me a fancy camera so you can see the detail and dimension... for now, just use your imagination!
