Jacks Dream Rug/Room

This was all about creating a space he wanted to spend time in. We wanted him to play a part in making some of the decor choices which makes him love his new big boy room that much more.

French Vintage Nursery with Reclaimed Wood Wall

Baker’s French Vintage Nursery

When I found out I was having another little girl, I began dreaming, pinning, and thinking about how I wanted her nursery to be. I didn’t get to do all this planning/nesting/shopping with my previous twin pregnancy.. their nursery randomly came together while on the thrones of bed rest. I ordered things online thinking and hoping it would all ‘work’ together. This go round I was excited at the thoughts of bringing my ideas for her room to life – but really being able to have a first hand into creating it from scratch.  I have a love for all things vintage, and any time I searched for themes and nursery ideas with that in mind, the French Vintage theme kept popping up. I wanted it to be pretty ‘girly’ for this little princess, but with a touch of the vintage side her mama loves so much.


Pink, Mint and Gray Baby Girl Nursery

We are preparing this pink, mint and grey nursery for our baby girl, due in October. I wanted to create a special room that felt peaceful and beautiful. I love soft, pastel colors and wanted to give her a space she could grow into. I decided early on that I would not have a “theme”, but rather a color scheme and overarching ideas of what I wanted the room to feel like. Within the light gray walls you’ll find different shades of pink and mint with gold accents running throughout.


Small Modern Nursery

The room we had to work with is very small so I knew I had to be efficient with my use of the space. I also wanted to achieve a feminine, but not too girly look for our baby  so I used navy blue with light pink accents for this modern small nursery.

Moose, Bears, and Owls Oh My Nursery

Moose, Bears, and Owls Oh My!

This has been my lil guys nursery for over a year! Where has time gone! I wanted a rustic, woodsy feel, but still a comforting safe place for my lil guy filled with love and support as he grows. I wanted a room that can easily transition from a nursery to a big boys room.

Pink and Gray Fairytale Nursery

Pink and Gray Fairytale for Baby Jocelyn. Million Dollar Baby Crib and Dresser in Dove White. Cherry Blossom decal and Crystal Mirror. A peaceful nursery for our new baby girl.


Girly and Floral Big Girl Room

I couldn’t find any bedding that I loved enough for my daughters room. I didn’t want to paint and I wanted to keep her black furniture from her nursery, along with some wall hangings and lamps so I needed to find something that incorporated all those colors. I found one option but it was unavailable so I decided if I can’t find what I want, I’m just going to make it. B had this Matilda Jane Platinum top that I fell in love with and it dawned on me that I should try and use that as inspiration for her room. So using her top inspiration I decorated a floral and girly room for my daughter. I added a lot of little personal touches and ended up doing a lot of DIY projects. Scanning the aisles of Michael’s can sometimes be a dangerous thing ;)

Whimsical Woodland Nursery

I wanted to create a happy but bright space for our baby boy. I was inspired by the 1960’s vintage sputnik light that I pulled from my grandparent’s home and the rest of the room just followed suit in an eclectic way!


Bridget’s Strawberry Shortcake Inspired Birthday Party

I wasn’t planning on doing a big party this year but I just couldn’t help myself. I picked the theme around Christmas and the timing was perfect. I was able to get Christmas clearance for 70% and since the colors for Strawberry Shortcake are red, green and pink, it worked perfectly. I bought lots of pinwheels in red and green and just added pink ones later one. Saved tons of money that way.

Honeycomb Backdrop

Isla’s Confetti-Filled First Birthday Party

Our house is full of neutral colors (see our daughter’s golden nursery on Project Nursery here), but I knew I wanted to throw a colorful confetti party to celebrate Isla’s first birthday. We definitely achieved the goal of having lots of bright colors – the balloon arch and honeycomb ball backdrops were just that!


Kennedy’s Enchanted Forest Fairy/Gnome 3rd Birthday

Kennedy wanted a Fairy Party, I didn’t want to go with the typical fairy garden theme. I know how much she loves the outdoors and animals and so it began. I started gutting out our woods on the side of our house and made her and Enchanted forest. I thought of this idea because when I was little my family would take us to this spot in town “The Enchanted forest” and it was so magical to me and was one of my favorite memories growing up. So much stuff to do there and see bowling pins made out of wood, houses, tables, Little men made out of wood, trails you name it. So back to Kennedy’s party I went with an Enchanted forest fairy and gnome Party. I wanted it to feel whimsical, magical, enchanting, majestic. Something she and her cousins and friends could play in after her party and many years to come. I started working on the woods when there was still mounds of snow everywhere,(we live in Maine)  I had a time limit to get this done before her party came along. So I brought out the shovels and starting digging. The area I chose on the side of the house was just perfect, the trees seem to spread out just perfect soo I found the trails I wanted to add and started cutting with a saw and machete (which took forever) and tipping over the dead trees and hauling them out. Thank goodness Kennedy’s papa came along with the chain saw and it HELPED out in a big way!  So finally we got the trees cleared out, I began lining the trails with Rocks , which took A LOT of Rocks to do and took a lot of grunting and groaning trying to push this wheelbarrow through the woods up the trails filled with a ton of rocks. (Gets super heavy). Once that was completed my father’s  friend had given him a pretty nice wooden swing set for Kennedy awhile ago. That wasn’t put together yet, so I had him take the Slide and put it in the forest. Same with the swings and the  Rock climbing wall. I spread them out amongst the trails. Parts from the swing set I used  to make bridges for the trails and also made a tent out of spare pieces. His friend also gave us a nice sandbox that his grand daughter outgrew. So in the sandbox went in to the forest (which is a big hit with he kiddos).  I had the perfect spot near the end of the trail, it came to a complete straight line so I went and purchased large outdoor bowling pins and put them in, it opened up at the end of the trail for the perfect spot. Kennedy’s papa, myself and her Nana worked on a house to put in the forest. It turned out awesome, big and looks like a log cabin just tied in perfect with the theme. I ended up gettting a bunch of brick and painted yellow lines on them and made a big racetrack for forest and found some PVC lying around and made a tunnel out of it and covered it with mulch, rocks, and moss and that’s where the cars went flying down and you could race on the track. I found some trees and hung them connecting to two other tree so I could hang the flower reading canopy I made. I added tons of Toadstools, Flowers, gnomes, Butterflies and pinwheels throughout the trails. I also Made Fairy doors and windows and nailed them to trees. So that sums of the Forest pretty well. For the tables  I had the perfect spot picked out for a large long table for the kids, in front of these large rocks and super old logs that were growing moss all over them and it just added perfectly to my theme I was going for! We made a long table out of plywood and used stumps for the legs and made log benches for seating and I Made toadstool pillows to place on them. I used the main kids table for them to make fairy gardens and remember those large rocks and stumps I put all the accessories for the gardens all over them so the kids could go over and pick what they wanted to put in their gardens. The middle of the table was decor of moss,gnomes,trolls, fairies, rocks, butterflies, birds, flowers, wood, birds nest, fairy homes and animals  etcs…. I had a spot right by the main table to put up a fairy swing, I made the wooden board  and covered it with moss and on the rope added flower garlands. I placed a table by the main table that was set up with fairy wands and headbands I made for the girls and Gnome hats and beards for the boys. I had a section laid out for face painting and Fairy hairspray glitter. I had this perfect round mirror that was made out of bark that went perfect right next to the table and I hung fairy wings I made next to that so They all could check themselves out all dolled up before they entered the forest. I made three toadstool tables from Spools. I set up little crafts the kids could make on them. I hung from the entrance Her name I made out of twigs moss and flowers for each letter. The hanging decor I used were pom poms I already made that I used at one time for her nursery and I made yarn balls out of balloons and hung flower pots covered in moss. The food table was over by the end of the trail to exit the forest, near a wishing well we already had on the property and I felt that tied in perfect with the theme.

Vibrant Aqua and Coral Nursery

Isla’s Coral and Aqua Nursery

We wanted to create a vibrant room that can grow with Isla. We selected fabrics from Carousel Designs and paired them with white furniture pieces and an ivory glider and textured rug.

Ballerina Princess Nursery

Ballerina Princess Nursery Room

I think every single mom gets crazy about her first child. Guess what would be the prettiest room in the whole house… Of course “The Nursery”. And I was there, to make all my sister’s wishes come true. Painting, sewing, installing, etc. I loved it… Don’t you?
