Baby G's nursery!

Finally it is done and not a moment too soon as she is due on January 7th!!!  I am so excited for her and she loves how the space turned out.  If you are new to my blog you can go here to see how it looked as a bedroom.  

Here is how it looks now.
This is that skanky blue chair recovered in linen and added nail heads.  The curtains are drop cloths.
She found this chair on the side of the road and painted it white.  We recovered the seat with a Raoul fabric.
Dang..... we ordered these on the internet and I can't remember where right now but I can find out if anyone wants to know.  Framed in Ikea frames.
She picked this up somewhere in Atlanta and added the chalk paint knobs.
The lamp is from Pottery Barn, the abacus is from CB2
The white shelves are from Ikea.



That dang bird...I love it!  West Elm.
I loved this when I saw it at West Elm...kind of like a mobile.

Cuteness...
She went to Auburn....duh.


Anthropologie!

Bathroom...shower curtain.
Do you need this many?
The closet!  Love the AC DC t shirt!

It totally suits her personality if you knew her!  Hope you guys like it too :)

We are at the beach and it is freezing here.  I had to go buy a space heater for my feet cause I can't get warm......

My Christmas decor

Yep.  That's right.  Just squeaking it in.  I don't normally do too much because we leave on the 26th, but I decided to have a few neighbors over for some Holiday Cheer last night so that gave me kind of a push to do a little extra.  There is a trail where I walk my dogs everyday so I gathered most of the greenery there.
First of all can we talk about this???  I got it at Pier one and I love it.  Have you been there lately because they have some awesome pillows and many have down inserts.  I could have bought about 10, [which I had loaded in my arms] but came to my senses and only bought one.  It's a doozy though as you will see later on.
  
And I happened across this little wine bucket at a flea market the other day for a mere $20.00

So it got a cute little tree in it.
Now for the mantel in the den.  Remember the shutters I bought at Scott's last month....


 I got these at World Market along with the glasses that had the chalk paint on them.

Wooden Christmas trees at Scott's.
Those little antlers at Walmart!
My Hobby Lobby Christmas tree....$8.00

There are the slate numbers that I got last month.

Now onto the DR.
Tied a small wreath to the shutter with brown velvet ribbon.
This is on the DR table.
Old jars but I put silver trays under them to add some bling.






Coffee table.


So that sparkly little pillow from Pier One!

OK...almost done.  I know you guys a way over Christmas decor.  I did have to get a picture of the lamps I bought at HG.  They had ugly shades on them but I happened to have extra in my attic :)
Took the pillows out of these chairs and added a wrapped box instead.
This is on the console when you walk into my house.
Remember the blue books from Scott's...I want more.
Foyer...cheap thrills...no cost decorating.
I have used this burlap to wrap the wreath for about 5 years now.
And I took a cue from Cottage and Vine and just stuffed my front door planters with greenery and a little bling
My smaller planters got moss, pinecones, a sprig of magnolia and 2 canning jars with sand a candles.

OK...Christmas is here now.  I am sure we have all been saturated with Christmas decor.  So that is enough from me.  But...I did do a few things to get ready for my party so stay tuned.  In fact planning a party will really get your butt in gear to finish a few small projects.  That is when I get obsessed.  It is a good thing that my sister owns a restaurant because I did not have to worry about the food.  More time for decorating....

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of my readers.  I have really enjoyed sharing, exploring design ideas, and getting to know you.  It has truly been a highlight of my year.

Peace,
