Sep17 Into the West 2013
Fire & Creme Kids is so wonderful because you can buy one of their party boxes and it comes with all the goodies you need to throw your own extravagant party. You can buy either tableware, decorations or goodie bags or if you want the full experience you can purchase all three. The theme of today’s feature is Into the West…not just inspiration but you can actually do this exact same perfect party.
Aug27 polka dots & baby 2013
Oh for crying out loud! The gold polka dots, I love you.
Here’s a sweet little note from Melanie, the mom:
We designed her nursery to have a soft, modern vibe. There wasn’t one overall theme but rather hints of travel, bold prints and animals. I placed several special touches such as a teacup from my sister that I used as a vase, the note that her dad wrote the morning she was born, and art prints that I hand painted to be reminiscent of some of my favorite prints by Anna Rifle Bond. It was such a thrill the first night we came home from the hospital and were able to change her, hold her, and rock her to sleep in the nursery. We had spent so much time creating a room for her that it was surreal to actually be there with her!

Good News: They are so kind to offer $25 to Ivie Baby to one lucky commenter. Good Luck!
As soon as I laid eyes on this vintage map collage print of California by Green Nest I knew it was perfect for this post. I love the earthy colors and the surfer vibe, it strikes the perfect balance of being sooo California without being over the top. I decided it would make the perfect backdrop for a little girl’s outfit and came up with this inspiration board. What do you think? Are you in love as much as I am? Baby girls are just SO fun to dress!

I am a huge Lindsey Letters fan. Have you seen her darling new line of prints and cards for baby? In. Love. I especially like the “You Are My Sunshine” canvas because it is bright and cheery and makes me think of spring (something that hasn’t quite arrived yet here in Chicago!) I crafted a mini inspiration board for baby girls based on this print. I had so much fun “shopping” and collecting pieces that reflect the same springy, happy, floral, and handwritten charm as the canvas. Do you ever find inspiration for your children’s clothing in unusual places? It can be so fun to look at things not only for what they are, but what they can be!
