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.

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.
