I'm in a Decorating Mood

Lately, I've been spending far too much time on design blogs and staring at Etsy. I'm in such a decorating mood! Ever get that way?

Maybe just me? 

It all started earlier this week when I had the sudden urge to make a terrarium. I know, I know. Isn't that so random? But I think I've been craving some greenery inside my house. Like this: 


Isn't she a beaut? I'd love to have this perched on my coffee table or sitting on my nightstand. Trouble is, this adorable terrarium is only sold in San Francisco. Alas! 

Well, maybe I won't have any greenery in my house soon but I can settle for some paper flowers instead. Like these:


The best part is... I can make these myself! Since Justin will be out-of-town on Saturday, I"m thinking about heading to Michael's or Paper Source, stocking up on supplies, and snipping flowers all afternoon. Who wants to join me?

And finally, I've been staring at nurseries as of late. Nope, not pregnant! But I'm getting to the point in my life where I think it'd be pretty awesome to decorate a nursery and fill it with adorable things, like tiny socks and little hats and books like Goodnight, Moon. And, you know, a baby. :)



I'm really loving these unexpected colors for a baby girl's room, sea-foam green and dove gray. Actually, I'm really digging gray as a paint color for our living area---neutral yet pretty. Plus, you can add all sorts of splashes for color.

What are you craving today?

  2. Great pictures!

    Hmmm . . . I'm craving fall. Leaf-crunching, cool-breezing, pumpkin-decorating fall.

    *sigh of happiness that it's here*
