I ordered 2 prints from Etsy for the nursery – both by Kristiana Parn. They came today – I just love them!!
One is called Baby Bird
and the other is called Follow Your Heart
I love the hues, the simplicity, and the playfulness of the prints. There are so many to choose from on Etsy – I had to just commit. I have also committed to fabric scheme for curtains, crib skirt, and the other plush things for the nursery – it is called Surf and Sand by Marcus Fabrics . I think it could be boy or girl – I’m thinking the dots for the curtains and plain teal for a small rocker I have that will be recovered. I think the star / flower fabric for the crib skirt. Walls in the nursery will be a light blue. I showed Matt the fabric and he really liked it too so now I just need to figure out how much and make an order!
I also have a crib in mind – the Lollipop Crib – it’s available at Baby Depot in Kitchener. It has the simple lines I like and converts to a bed. Has anyone tried this crib? Any feedback? I have not found any reviews – not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing… I have yet to see it in person – I’m planning a trip to the store in early September.
I looked at Sears – the only place in Stratford that sells cribs and the ones on display were very poor quality – wobbly, fake wood, scratched easily etc. I hope the Lollipop is ok.
I so am happy to get a start on this!
A girl I’ve been e-mailing who is also using our agency received her referral today from Korea – a very cute little boy! Took 5.5 months for the referral!! Congratulations Belinda and Steve!
