Labor is closer, baby is closer, nursery is seemingly far away.

I recently described my nursery to a friend. 
I've narrowed down the nursery to the colors gray with pops of brights like orange, red, yellow.  I also want to include as many woodland animals as possible - you know squirrels, owls, deer, rabbits, fox, occasional hedgehog, moose, etc!  :)

 Nesting from Wikipedia: 
 In human females, the nesting instinct often occurs around the fifth month of pregnancy, but can occur as late as the eighth, or not at all. It may be strongest just before the onset of labor. It is commonly characterized by a strong urge to clean and organize one's home, and is one reason why couples who are expecting a baby often reorganize, arrange, and clean the house and surroundings. This behavior is colloquially known as "straightening out", "clearing the road", or "clearing the coast", or "building a door".

If you know me, you know I have grandiose ideas of how the baby's nursery will look.  I continually come up with ideas yet have little money to make much of it happen!  So, like the wedding I am relying on blogs to inspire me and then search for easy DIY (do it yourself) projects to complete the room without shelling out lots of dough!  Some of the projects have included items that I am already making for the shower so they will double as fun things for the nursery! (painted flower pots, pinwheel mobile)

First I have started a polyvore inspiration page like I did for the wedding.

Below you can see what my general nursery theme is. Woodland animals but in the primary colors of gray, orange and red.

What do you think of the grays, reds, and oranges?


  1. I could give a hoot about owls (although they are cute): http://ezinearticles.com/?Nursery-Color-Theme-For-Making-Genius-Babies&id=4025885


  2. It'll be wonderful, I know! Perfect for Baby K.

  3. I love it!!! I hope i can come up with that creative when the time comes:)
