Ode to Pregnant Friends

Well it's that time of year when you start hearing the news "I'm pregnant!" I have a feeling that being in a group of mostly married girls around the ages of 26 to 28 (the later would be me...big old stinky 28-in May) we will be getting these calls and emails more and more often.

So in honor of those that are starting their fresh new families I salute you with this post of nusery inspiration! And to those who are dreaming and planning for that exciting time in their lives, this is to you also!

Handmade animals are so special and whimsical-great for baby boys or girls. If you like these, let me know I can make them!!! Your little baby will thank you.
My sweet pregnant friends, soon it will be the time of year for yard sales and spring cleaning, this is prime time for finding those vintage peices that need new life in a cute little nursery. (And a great way to save money because from what I hear you will definitely need it for diapers!!) Painting furniture can give old bookshelves, chairs, and beds a wonderful new look. sister lives in a small house with two little girls and she always needs extra storage. Built in or portable. Like the cute Dwell Studios basket above.

When painting your baby's room its best to use chemical free paint.

This picture is from a cool new blogger I found Kristen F. Davis, her blog is filled with great hand painted items.

I love these! Thanks Nikki. I will call you when we find out what we're having so you can come paint our nursery :-)

great line-up! I know what you mean... I'm always surrounded by pregnant friends or ones with babies! :) I'm 30 and no kids yet. One of these days....
