Blog surfing while nesting

Filed under: Baby Essentials, Decor

Hi friends! Sorry for my absence, but I'm 30 weeks pregnant and suffering from the most insane bout of nesting. Ever. On record. No seriously, I think my husband is just about ready to leave me, save his guilty conscience. And maybe he loves me still, just a little bit.

All kidding aside, I decided to enlist the help of my blogging pal Marla, who happens to have a good eye for design. She's always asking how she can help me out during this pregnancy, and I finally found a way to put her savvy to good use. She is currently hard at work creating a room for her 3-year-old daughter, and she happens to work in a part of the city that has the most vintage furniture and tchotke shops per capita. She is also a master of online research and often heads Stateside to visit her mother and go to Target. (Why do we not have Target in Canada yet?)

I live in a tiny two bedroom house. My 2.5-year-old son, Nate, has a room to himself, but it's oddly shaped and still quite "baby". The new baby will have to sleep by my bedside for everyone's sake. So needless to say, I have a few dilemmas to contend with over the next 10 weeks.

Marla sent me this link to Wee Wonderfuls, an awesome craft blog and mom blog all in one. Oscar and brand new Phoebe June both got new rooms recently, and they are a gorgeous mix of homemade crafts and woodwork, easy Ikea items and well-selected vintage pieces. In other words, my dream rooms. I mean the library shelves for books? Function meets style -- love it!

If you enjoy lovely things and your taste skews towards the quirky vs the out-of-the-box, you won't want to skip Hillary Lang's fabulous blog. Of course, seeing these gorgeous rooms has only fueled my insanity. More on my kids' rooms to come.

(Got any great blogs with photos of inspirational kids' rooms? Let me know!)
