Time for Something Fun - Baby Nursery Ideas! :)

So many serious things to consider lately; I want to talk about something FUN! :)  So, I thought I'd put up some of my ideas that I've had for baby/toddler rooms!

Dear Hubby and I are building a new loft-type condo (should be done within the next two months, actually!); so, I've been thinking about decorating and how I want this new home to "feel" more and more with each passing day.  We've done a lot of research, and all along the way I've been thinking of how I'd like our little girl's nursery to look one day as well.

I have tons of ideas, but I tend to gravitate toward urban hipster/shabby chic looks for her room.  I love bright colors, though, so, her room won't be a straight-forward interpretation of either of these design esthetics but rather a sort of mish-mash of as many bright, vintage-y, girlie finds as I can conjure up!

Many of the pictures below are from one of my FAVORITE baby blogs http://www.spearmintbaby.blogspot.com!  The writer is always finding so many adorable baby and toddler goodies; every day there's something new to oogle!

So, here are a few of my favorite finds that I hope to recreate in our little one's future nursery!

I love the big, beautiful "puff" balls made of tissue paper in this room!  So, I went and bought these (below) in all different shades of pink for the nursery (one day)!

 

There's enough to make something like 10 giant puff-balls between the two sets; which is awesome!  Both sets are by Martha Stewart crafts.  (By the way, they were both on sale too!  The small set on top for $1.50, and the bigger one on bottom for $3.50!  Woo hoo!)


 
Remember "Little Golden Books"?!  I used to LOVE them when I was little (still do)!  I found these on sale for $1 a piece one day at a local store; so, I bought up all my favorites!  All the classics are here: the Scruffy Lion, Tootles the Train, the Big Book about God, and the Pokey Little Puppy!  I can't wait to share these stories with our little girl!  (Oh, and Eagan, our Scottish Terrier wouldn't get out of the shot; so, he's the fluffy white thing looking up at you!  Ha!)

 

I love the simplicity and modern design of this baby nursery!  Oddly enough, it is a photo discovered by Spearmint Baby's writer and is from the 1970's!  Who knew?!  I hope to stay classic and minimalistic like this room...we'll see if I can make it happen someday!

 

I found this old advertisement page at a local flea market for only $3!  It had all of the vintage colors and designs I was looking for; so, of course, I HAD to buy it! :)

 

Another featured nursery from Spearmint Baby that I LOVE!  Look at those colors!!!!!  So beautiful!

 

I love the colors of this room!  It's neutral with a splash of bright, bold COLOR (which I absolutely LOVE)!  I even love the robot, but I don't think we'll be following a theme like that for our daughter's room since we want to keep it pretty girlie.  This picture also came from Spearmint Baby; and I love that the little boy who occupies this room is named "Jack Danger"(you can see his name in the banner hanging over the crib)!  I love unique names; so, that takes the cake!  Bravo to his mom and dad!!!!

 

 
No little girl's room would be complete without some dolls around, right?!  The first doll is one that Dear Hubby and I bought from e-bay.com back when we were still thinking we were going to be adopting from China.  We scoured the Internet looking for Asian Cabbage Patch dolls - ha!  Good luck!  Finally, after months of searching, we found ONE seller and bought this little cutie up!  After we decided to switch countries to Ethiopia, I was given the second doll as a gift.  It was fun for me too, because when I was a little girl, my first Cabbage Patch Doll was black and looked almost exactly like this one! 

These are just a few of our ideas for our future daughter's room, and we're years away from this becoming a reality; but I have to say that every little idea and project invested in her (even this far in advance) makes me really excited!  I can't wait til the day that we're actually painting the walls and putting a crib together - *ah bliss*!

Blessings and More Blessings,
*mandie*

  5. I have been trying to get pregnant for over 12 years and at the same time looking for ways online, I first did Depo Provera Shot which i consecutively took every three months in order to get pregnant or fertile, there was no good result from it. I did Depo shot for 3 years constantly until Doctors in Kenturkey told me to try IVF because I had Endometriosis stage 4 and I resulted to try IVF( In Vitro Fertilization). Months after my IVF nothing progressed and my situation became worse that my husband had already made his plan getting married to another woman which made me sort help in spell casters. I read a testimony about Doctor Muna how he had helped so many women with pregnancy and fertility problems. Of all options tried, I decided to give Doctor Muna a try. I am now a mother of twins. A boy and a girl. For over 12 years of marriage I received my help from a spell caster. I want to impact on someone's life and make the person get help from a good spell caster that is why I put up my testimony for you. Doctor Muna's email is marvelspelltemple@ gmail. com Once you contact him, he will help you fast

  6. We had no luck getting pregnant for over 12 years ..... Before my husband saw comments on Parents, referred us to marvelspelltemple @gmail. com We liked Dr Muna right away with his straight forward personality and positivity. Earlier before we met with Dr Muna I had endometriosis. Endometriosis had damaged my ovaries/eggs. We did surgery for my endometriosis and were not successful getting pregnant with IVF, however miscarried due to a chromosomal abnormality. After a couple more tries at egg retrieval, we decided to go with Dr. Muna Infertility Spell that made us conceived our first child. We decided to go for another Dr. Muna Infertility Spell, we got pregnant again and on July 6th, 2018, our second child was born! Marvel Spell Temple were so helpful during our times together. Dr. Muna always made an emotionally difficult situation a little easier with the care and support we received. Dr. Muna has a great sense of humor which lightens the tough times of infertility spell and is extremely caring. We could not of found a better spell caster. We felt very fortunate to have been directed to marvelspelltemple @g mail. com to help us through the difficulties and then success of making our little family.

  7. I just wanted to send a note to thank marvelspelltemple @gmail. com for the little girl we got to cuddle today. My first interaction with Doctor Muna about Infertility Spell process, I was scared and had a lot of questions. However Doctor Muna was always there for me throughout the whole process and became a part of the family. The most precious moments were spent looking at the first ultrasounds of our little miracle and watching her heartbeat for the first time. Moments I will not forget for the rest of my life. I am so thankful that I went to marvelspelltemple @gmail. com as he knew exactly what type of protocol to put me on that was right for me. This was our first and only attempt and thankfully it worked. Again, thank you all for your expertise and compassionate Miracle. Because of it I will have a lifetime of memories of our little girl!

  15. I AM HERE TO TESTIFY ON HOW MY HERPES VIRUS WAS CURED BY DR HARRY.
    I'm Ashley Burgos, from Texas, USA. I had been in a relationship with a guy and we had unprotected sex for the first time and within a day i got a big bump on the crease of my thigh and vagina. After a few days it began to hurt more and more. I told him to take a picture of it for me, and it looked like open sores, like bugs were biting off my skin or something. So I went to the ER and they said genital herpes. I was soooo depressed. My boyfriend and I cried. He cried for me, but he had no idea he had it too. The next day, the same thing happens to him. At this point, we think I gave it to him because I was the first one to show the symptoms. The next phase I went through was depression. At this point, all I did was sleep and cry. I felt like my life was over. I knew I could never get married, I felt dirty, and worthless. I was depressed for about two months. I fought thoughts of suicide and it was a hassle to even carry out my daily tasks. So I started to wonder if there would be a remedy to this disease, which led me to going to visiting many hospitals, and nothing good came out from it, until I read a person’s testimony online that said that they were cured with the help of Dr Harry, of this disease that the world deems incurable and tears rolled down my face. That person's testimony sparked a hope in me that led me to contact Dr Harry. So he assured us that we are going to be alright, after meeting up with the necessary requirements, he sent us a parcel and gave us an instruction guide on how to use it, which we did, after 7 days of using the medication, the herpes was totally cured. So my boyfriend and I went and got tested for every STD in the book and every single test came back NEGATIVE, we also went back to the hospital, and it was confirmed NEGATIVE. I am posting my testimony to help someone out there suffering from this disease. Do not hesitate to contact Dr. Harry via e-mail: drharryherbs@gmail.com or call him or whatsapp on +2349033111567
    website: https//drharryherbs.weebly.com.com
    HE ALSO HAS CURE TO THE FOLLOWING DISEASE:
    HPV
    GENITAL HERPES
