Feb15 Bunkbeds 2013
Bunk-beds have come a long ways in the last ten years. They used to terribly small, hideously ugly, and were only used to save space. Now they are the centerpieces of cozy rooms and happy beds that I would be more than happy to move into. It’s seems we have taken what used to be simply a space saver, and made them into beautifully designed, perfectly charming beds.

Jan21 Baby Della and her Chic Nursery 2013
Baby Grey is a big fan of photographer Pam Cooley, and she has blown us away again, although Newbie Mom and Dad deserve lots of credit for this divine nursery. I love the water color florals and the gold floral print accent wall paper. The chandelier is breathtaking and creates superb patterned light in the room bouncing off the gold, navy and melon tones. It looks so peaceful and serene, Della is one lucky lady.
Jan18 DIY Play Mat 2013
The bloggers over at Playful Learning had the brilliant idea to reject the ugly car mat that is found in the toy store, and make an adorable, easy to store, fashionista version. I love it!!! I think I might make one myself, it’s as easy as A,B,C.
“To make the mat: Use two pieces of tape about an inch apart to make a road. Place roads all over your board, connecting them in various ways as they would be in a real city. Leave open spaces around the board for buildings. The tape looks best when it’s cut off the roll, rather than torn. This step would be fun for older kids who want to help with the “city planning!” Once you’re satisfied with the placement of the roads, draw a dashed line down the center of each road and add any other embellishments you’d like.
To make the city building blocks: Paint two coats of acrylic paint on each block using your paintbrush. It worked best for me to finish three sides of a block at a time and allow to dry before flipping over and finishing the other three sides. Allow to dry completely before using. My kids are old enough to not place things like blocks in their mouths, but if you have a younger baby you may want to leave the blocks unfinished or use some blocks in your existing collection of toys!”
