Feathered Nest Shower

I was utterly charmed by Averill’s post yesterday about her baby shower.

If there is anything I love more than the color “robins’ egg blue,” it’s actual blue robins’ eggs (or at least in the way of decorations – not sure what I’d do with real robins’ eggs…)

The “Feather Your Nest” shower was so creative and lovely.






Understated elegance. Just like Averill.

Have you seen the work she’s been doing on her nursery?


It will make you want a baby (or another baby). At least for the few minutes that you’re salivating over the pictures. Then your thoughts can go back to spit up and diapers. Can you have a nursery without a baby? Probably not…

A Bee’s Nursery

I was just perusing the new issue of Nesting Newbies, a cute online magazine, and I found myself doing a double take.

There on pages 142-149 was Melisa’s nursery! Or more accurately, her daughter, Devon’s nursery. Melisa of the lil bee fame, won possibly one of the best giveaway prizes in the history of blog…um…giveaway prizes. Free interior decorating services!

Back in March, she featured some pictures of the final product as well as links to the designer, Michele Krantzow of Lavender & Plum and the photographer, Bentley Waters.

Here are some images from the article (as well as a few from Melisa and Michele’s sites):








Love love love the yellow paint color! But then you’d never guess that by glancing at my blog…

Now maybe I missed something…but I haven’t seen any recent posts about online magazine features on the lil bee… Anyway – it was a fun surprise and I’m so pleased for the lovely and talented Melisa that she won such a fabulous prize AND got some great press for her wonderful websites (the second of course, is her genius creation, Feather Report).

Also – am I the only one who noticed that both designer and client have unusual name spellings in which an “l” is dropped? Weird. Or maybe not weird…maybe just an exaggerated reaction that could be sign that it’s time for me to go to bed already! ‘Night.

Baby Boho at Rickshaw Design

One of my new favorite sites, The NEO-traditionalist introduced me to this darling line of children’s clothes and bedding.

Rickshaw Design’s founder and designer Catherine Fitzsimmons uses her world travels as inspiration, particularly India where she found herself captivated by block printing.


I only have to look at her picture to know that I’ll most likely love anything she creates. I’m obsessed with her top.

Here are some Baby Boho images I found on the Rickshaw site:










Um – Catherine? Are you planning to start a line for women anytime soon? I’ll be your first customer…

Pssst! Run don’t walk to The City Sage where the lovely Anne is giving away a $40 store credit to Rickshaw.
