I've been daydreaming about the perfect nursery for a while now. This weekend I took some concrete steps in the direction of a theme for the room. BirdNerd 3000 is the route I'm taking. Given the family history of birdnerdery
, I think its an appropriate choice, and the abundance of adorable bird stuff out there makes it fun & easy for a pregnant mama to feather the nest. I present the weekend's spoils:
First, a set of ten Counting Bird wall cards by Melissa Sweet, available at EeBoo
, or if you're me, Anthropologie
. I'm thinking I'll put these each in its own unmatching vintage frame and hang artfully above the as-yet-unpurchased crib.
Secondly, this poster:
I've nearly driven off the road every day in front of Frame Warehouse in Oak Park for the past couple of weeks because they have a huge framed version of this in the window that I lust after. Finally I called them yesterday and just ordered the damn thing. This will be lovely over the also-as-yet-unpurchased changing table.
While this is just 2 items of dozens that need to be procured for the little peanut's room, I am glad to be out of the gate with at the very least, someplace to start. Now I just need to start clearing that room of the crap we've been shoving in there and promptly shutting the door on for the past 6 months.
