pelmet boxes and nursery details

I just finished a few final touches on Isla’s nursery. I made a pelmet box for over the window using Jenny from Little Green Notebook’s tutorial and I finally got it hung up! There’s a lot going on in the room, but I think it was just what the nursery needed to provide that finishing touch.

I also completed the details on the shelves about my favorite pink velvet chair. The top shelf houses a print Cailin sent us from the Etsy shop Gus + Lula and Isla’s birth announcement in a frame. The second shelf has her sparkly ‘I’ and a photo from our maternity shoot. The bottom shelf houses her small book collection. I love this shelf of books because it’s a reflection of who we are- a book about prayers, Audrey Hepburn, weddings, Minnesota, books about friends and the Daring Book for Girls.

A couple notes about her stuffed animals- the Cabbage Patch is affectionately named Mavis and was mine as a girl, the blonde doll with the big blue eyes was made by my mom and the large puppy on the chair was given to Isla by our dear friends Jessica and Brandon. It is affectionately referred to as Stuffed MoPo after their dog Money Penny. It was exactly the same size as Isla when she got her!

The adorable cross stitched letter ‘I’ was a special gift handmade by our favorite friend Megan.We are so blessed to have friends that love us so much!

To pass the time this evening I was scoping out Etsy for some new fun inspirations and treats.  Here are a few of my faves:

WHIMSY Love Vintage Button Ring of the Month Club: I mean, can you get any cuter, if I were having a bummer of a day and I got one of these vintage button rings in the mail I know I’d instantly perk up.  How fun for a birthday gift for the friend who has everything.

These teeny tiny candleholders from the Lollipop Workshop make me smile…well…because they’re tiny people looking candleholders. When I get a kid I should maybe invest in some of these, how fun! The Lollipop Shop also makes custom cake toppers which I couldn’t find for my own wedding (this was before I knew about Etsy).

Keeping with the cute, colorful, cupcake-y theme I have going on here I ran into these Cupcake Stands from Michelle Miller’s Shop.  They’d also be perfect for ice cream, a portion of trail mix or even jewelry. I could go for one in each color.

I love pops of bright colors and my house is in serious need of that right now as I don’t have any artwork up yet. I also happen to love typography and just thought one of these posters might be a fun addition to our walls:

la la love you

This one from Jenny’s Bake Shop matches our “Keep Calm and Rock On” poster from The Poster List.  For some reason the cupcake options sounds really great too.

I should get back to my husband and pay more attention to the movie!! I hope you enjoyed my finds!
