Pillows Gone Wild

I’m a sucker for a decorative pillow.  In my son’s nursery on his glider we keep a monkey pillow.  Not that I would change out the monkey pillow, but I just thought I’d check to see what all is out there these days.  DUDE, these are the CUTEST!  I’m trying to decide which is my favorite but I’m guessing Der’s is gonna be the weiner dog.

7 Ways to Make an Eclectic Nursery

When I found out I was having a boy, I knew what I didn’t want in a nursery. I didn’t want pastels, I didn’t want typical.  What I did want was his nursery to look like it belonged to the rest of our house which is colorful and eclectic.


I had seen, at a local antique show, a slew of owls painted on some weathered fence boards and immediately wanted it for my son’s nursery however it was a GAZILLION dollars, so I set out to make it and therein came the theme for my son’s room: owls.  I read somewhere after I picked that theme that owls bring good luck, wisdom, and watchful protection to your home–LOVED IT!

My hunt for owls then returned the Flights of Fancy Mobile, which just embodied the colorfulness that I wanted.  From there I wanted unique animals and found the Dodo Bird print, Pongo (who I loved so much I framed him) and Magnus.
