okay, seriously

could this wallpaper be any cuter? i could never commit to an entire wall, but maybe behind shelves or in a closet...

going home outfit

those of you who have spoken to me in the past few weeks know that i'm currently obsessed with finding the perfect "going home" outfit for the baby. i found this hat on etsy and, i must admit, i'm kind of fixated on it. i just feel like $30 is a lot for a little tiny hat...

interesting website

the above collage found on the site illustrates heteronormativity in women's magazines. it's interesting that all of these articles are guy-centric when the magazine is supposedly written for females.

as a sociology undergrad, i'm always interested in sociological commentary. i actually found this site on facebook, but you can find it here. it's called "sociological images." some of the pieces are more interesting than others, but it's definitely worth a perusal.

just in time for fall...

i love fall weather. it means jean jackets, scarves, tights, and boots. since i'm rather rotund this fall, clothing shopping has become less fun. i've been focusing instead on scarves because you can wear them no matter what size you are! the blog sfgirlbybay featured these lovely scarves. if i had an extra $30, i would DEFINITELY buy this scarf in mustard.

i love this.

i love this combination of a tulip table with the orange bertoia chairs. i think it would go nicely with the rest of my house. too bad it's expensive...i'll be happy with the one bertoia chair i found at a flea market:).

yes, i'm a nerd

the artistic side of me would love not to notice this....but does it bother anyone else that the phrase spray painted on this cabinet is grammatically incorrect? "everything in it's place?" hmmm, it seems this is one of the most common grammatical mistakes. i totally get it; i can see the logic in making "it" into its possessive form. But wouldn't you double check before posting the picture on a widely viewed public forum?

opinions, please

i'm considering this vintage herman miller coffee table as a replacement for our current table (see previous post about my o.c.d). i figure it's nice and sturdy, and the little one can color on it, eat on it, etc. any thoughts?

weekend trip to ikea + baby stuff

the changing table we bought at ikea this weekend! we have a little sheepskin cover for the changing pad, so it should make it a little cozier.
this is the fabric we bought from ikea for the baby's duvet cover.
our high chair from ikea.
cute little wooden toy we bought at ikea...i'm hoping we'll have mostly wooden and non-battery operated toys...we'll see if the family cooperates:)
our crib from ikea.
the print i just bought from etsy for the little one's room. i'm thinking i'll spray paint an old picture frame bright orange and have a nice matte cut.

i love these bright garlands from etsy. the baby's room will be either off white, pale gray, or pale blue. i figure that way i can add tons of bright accents without looking too circus-y.
same ideas as above...also from etsy.

i just bought these little patches from etsy to stitch onto his tiny little cardigans.
ernie just bought these for me from etsy! they're even cuter in person
i ordered this from etsy a couple of weeks ago. it's very cute, but teeny tiny.

okay, i'll promise not to make all of my posts baby-related. i just had to get that out of my system:).

readymade article

these pictures were taken from the blog besting nesting. the photos originally appeared in a recent issue of readymade. i seriously LOVE this house and, to top things off, this couple has some serious screen printing skills...i'm suddenly feeling inadequate...maybe someday:).

they have two children named milo and calder (could they be any cooler), and this is their room.
dining room
the pictures of the living room are far better in the magazine. if you have a chance, you should check it out. it was featured in the april/may 2010 issue. there are also some pictures of their amazing kitchen.
eames rocker, built in book shelves, exposed beams, charley harper's too much
a shot of the whole family

elephant mobile i'm trying hard not to make this another "baby mama blog," but i just had to share this adorable mobile i found this morning. i think i might just have to break down and buy it. i've seen them in a lot of design magazines and blogs, and always thought they would be far more expensive. i found this one at the moma store.

if you happen to see...

a booth like this, buy it for me! i really want to have a booth in our breakfast nook. it's somewhat unusable right now, and i think this would really work in the space. i better do some measuring...

i've always wanted curly hair. i like kate hudson's loose, bohemian style...
...or these pretty curls...
...or if i was feeling especially daring, something like this style! (although i'm not sure it would look good on me)

after my body wave incident with aveda, i've decided that curls are just not in the cards for me. i've been trying to decide whether to cut my bangs again, or let them grow out...pregnancy isn't the time to do anything drastic, so whatever i do will be subtle:)
