It’s a Girl! | Nursery

What are you doing in four weeks?  Well, my dear real-life friend Darlene of Fieldstone Hill Design will be having a baby girl.  Oh, jealousy, I can’t help but envy all the newborn snuggles and sweet cheek-to-cheeks in her near future.  Sleepless nights…it just doesn’t seem to matter with the third baby.

She has invited designers to dream up fantasy girl nurseries that she has posted throughout her pregnancy–all beautiful ones, take a look.  And she took a chance and invited me to participate!  But she had to lay some ground rules for me knowing my penchant for painting internal organs and decorating with bare body parts:  ”no intestines but nudity is okay.”  Well, I didn’t want to flirt with controversy so I avoided any semblance of either, but there are aviary parts.Screen shot 2013-08-08 at 7.08.58 AM

And there is a sweet mural.

I couldn’t help myself on the mural, thinking back to my little business of designing nurseries and painting murals in Houston.  That was a happy job.

Hop on over to Darlene’s and see the complete room that I dreamed up for her little soprano.  Darlene wrote some super sweet stuff about the writer of TPH, which has me thinking surely she has me confused with someone else (thank you, thank you!)  And, thank you, friend, for inviting me to contribute!  I can’t wait to meet your sweet girl!


In other news, I figured out the laundry room layout so that I’m happy…and it has a sink!  Thank you all for leaving your thoughts on the idea of a laundry sink–I agree with you!  I’m sure I won’t regret it.  And thank you to patient Darlene, who has a million-and-one nesting things to do, for fielding my late night emails and frantic texts about the laundry spatial problems–you are the best!  I’ll share the plan soon.
