It’s that time of year!!!  I absolutely love Christmas and everything that it brings.  Okay, maybe not the freezing weather, but everything else?  Love! This year I made bigger wreaths for my windows and covered them in silver and red balls. I wrapped the posts in garland (my favorite reason for even having porch posts), channeling […]

Week 6 – – it’s finally here!  I first must confess, my nursery isn’t quite done.  So, we are going to call this a semi-reveal.  The original plan was for a neutral nursery…lots of white, very soft, clean, and calming. Well, I think it’s safe to say that didn’t happen! I am loving this version, though, too:) […]

  • Tee @ Beauteeful Living - Hi Teresa! Omg, if this is semi-done, I can’t imagine how this beautiful rustic nursery will look when completely done. Love all those details. And that Gigi… if you were local, I’d want to dogsit! She is a cutie! Aaah, it’ll only be a matter of time before we welcome another boxer into our home. So glad to have met you through this challenge. I will be following along!ReplyCancel

    • Teresa P - Thanks Tricia! I love the year round wreath idea!! Thanks:)ReplyCancel

  • Erin @ The Organized Life - This room looks pretty complete to me. I’d say you just have a few tweaks left. Everything looks so adorable and ready for baby girl. I laughed about the cart rolling down the hall in the middle of the night. Definitely out if that were to ever happen. You created a truly beautiful nursery. Great job!ReplyCancel

    • Teresa P - Thanks Erin! Sometimes things just look like ghosts are attached, what can I say?! Thanks :)ReplyCancel

  • marcie - I’m impressed. This is beautiful and you did so much in the 5 weeks AND while pregnant!! My ORC wore me out and I’m not “cooking” a baby girl!! My daughter is 24 and the verse on your sign is her favorite :) Oh and the dog on the rug ? Too cute!!!ReplyCancel

    • Teresa P - Thank you so much Marcie! That’s kind of why I chose to do the nursery now…I’m only about 5 months pregnant so it seemed easier now than when I’m 8 months. I plan to do nothing that last trimester! Thanks for visiting!!ReplyCancel

  • Corinna - A Designer At Home - Ohmygoodness that little cart! So cute! And so many of the pieces will transition so easily into bigger kid spaces, too. Great job!ReplyCancel

    • Teresa P - Thank you Corinna! It was a great find, that’s for sure:)ReplyCancel

  • Debbie V - WOW! This room is beautiful. What a lucky little girl. Good luck with your pregnancy.ReplyCancel
