Em’s Halloween Decorations

Monday, October 10th, 2016

I’m way too of a scaredy-cat to get way in to Halloween….so we usually just have a few decorations up with nothing that will scare me if I go downstairs the middle of the night…haha!

It’s so fun having a two year old that is starting to notice the holidays and season changes and helps me put the new decorations up.

This year I just pulled few black decorations from the Halloween bin, and placed them on white cake stands and my open shelving. I love that it only took five minutes and gives us a little festivity for October.

The black crows and creepy cloth are from the Dollar Tree.
THESE towels from Williams-Sonoma are a new favorite!

Happy Monday to you all, hope you have a great week.

Inexpensive Marbled Paper Art

Monday, September 26th, 2016

We are so lucky that a Paper Source opened in Utah a few years ago.
This is one of our favorite stores to visit, it always has us oohing and ahhing at all their goodies. We love a good stationary store, and always find them inspiring.

THIS marbled wrapping paper with its gold veining really caught my eye and thought it would be perfect framed.

I popped it in THIS frame, and loved how these two pieces worked together.

For under $20 it’s made quite the statement, even if it is just hanging in my loo!

Em’s baby boy will be here in under a month….and we’ve finally got his room cleaned out and decorated for him!

It took a while to decide the color scheme. Emily kept on going back and forth between a b+w nursery or using softer neutrals of grey + cream. Grey and cream and natural wood tones felt more cozy and babyish, so eventually this color scheme won.

Once we decided on color it was time for the star statement wall, which really makes the room. It was a labor of love and took a really long time, but it was worth it! Come back tomorrow to find out the nitty-gritty of this process.

Jane is now 21 months so will make the transition to a toddler bed in just a few months. Her crib HERE will eventually make it into baby boy’s room.

His clothes are washed, diapers are stocked in his room ready. Now if we could just decide on his name! ‘Ben’ is up on the door for a trial run.

Do you have any boys names you are loving? We need some help!
