Nursery Preview {in Snippets}

I accomplished about 10% of what I hoped to accomplish in the nursery this past week . . . I’m afraid it is going to be several weeks yet until I have a finished room to share with you (please, don’t shoot.) In the meantime, here is a preview in snippets . . . the room itself is rather a chaotic mix of empty boxes and stacks of clothes right now, but I couldn’t help but mentally zoom in on the little things . . .

***updated 1-5-10 with some sources by request!****

Sons are a heritage from the LORD,

children a reward from him.

  2. I can’t wait to see the whole thing. These are the sweetest snippets ever. I love the soothing hues of blues and calming tones of everything. That little picture is just precious. I love it all:)

  3. I’m seriously swooning over here Erin! The bedding is sooo lovely and soothing. Love all the little details – they are the most important thing!

  4. Oh, my; that Friend print! So precious!! And are those embroidered ‘buttons’? What a clever and safe alternative, if so! πŸ™‚
    It will be so darling, can’t wait to see the rest. πŸ™‚

  5. LOVE the new header! And I am drooling over every shot Erin! That fabric with the little crowns in particular is amazing~
    I know the finished room will be stunning and worth the wait.


  6. very similar colors to my grandbaby’s nursery in the works! Stop over and see what I’m up to.

  7. Rejoicing with you in the blessing of nesting and making ready for your miracle. Everything is awfully sweet!

  8. Even the snippits are as magical as I imagined they would be. On pins and needles waiting for the rest.

  9. Chic, I can’t wait to see the finished product. You style is just to die for. You blessing is going to sleep in style. God Bless

  12. Oh Erin! I love the peter rabbit details, such a lovely selection for a little guy. Also LOVE that verse– congrats on your baby boy– boys are just wonderful!! We find out the gender of our second in a few weeks.

  13. I love what you’ve selected! Damask prints are my favorite and I firmly believe a chandelier can belong in a baby’s room-boy or girl. I also love the geometric pattern you chose for the comforter-such a pretty shade of blue. This nursery is going to be gorgeous. Can’t wait to see the finished room!

  14. I just came across your blog! I LOVE your style and I LOVE the Somethings Gotta Give dining room as well!!! I also noticed your stack of Our State magazines. My home state! The top issue, my hometown!!
