I love decorating. Have you figured that out about me yet? I’m moving at a snail’s pace with the house, but it’s coming together and I love it. I don’t have a single space that I would call near finished, but there are some corners that are really making me happy. My theme for the entire house has been “happy”. I know I’ve talked about this before and if you follow me on instagram, you’ll see me post pictures of my happy corners. You’ll also see me post peeks of items that are in the process of being placed. We have eclectic taste, but I always support handmade as much as I can and decided early on that Matilda’s nursery would be filled with as much happy handmade color as possible.
One of the things I love the most about the handmade community is that you get to actually know the people who make the things you buy. I’ve spoken with every single person who made what I’m about to show you, whether it was in person or online in some fashion, and I would call quite a few of them real friends. It means the world to me that Matilda will be surrounded by handmade love.

I will have more to show you in the coming weeks. I’ll also be updating once everything is in place and I can show off the actual nursery. And, of course, sometime soon I’ll have Matilda here to model for me. I’m 31 weeks now and we don’t really know how long she’s going to stay put, so it’s the final stretch no matter what.
