Growing like a Woodland Weed

Remember the woodland growth chart from a previous post? The other weekend we put it on the wall in baby girl's room, next to where she'll lay her head in a little while crib. I love it! 

Here are some of the things I want to hang in the corner over the chair and ottoman. I've got a few more little things to add (like maybe some prints I bought on our recent babymoon in St. Augustine), but I'd love to get some of these on the wall soon!

Palladian Blues

Today I was off work for the 4th of July, and Luke and I painted the baby's room! We used Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue, and I can now safely say that nearly my entire house is blue...just the way I like it!

Thursday night we moved all the guest room furniture out and the baby things in. I tested out the paint on our butter-yellow wall... it was a perfect pale blue-green.

This morning, we went on a walk and then we got to work. Luke did the cutting in and I did the rolling. 

And voila! Our beautiful new baby's room! You can see the mismatched chair and ottoman I picked up at the Jr. League garage sale and had recovered. I painted that little desk a glossy white and got milk glass handles for it. 

This painting is by my mom--it is of my playhouse that Dad built it for me when I was little. The playhouse used to be pink. Funny enough, it's now Palladian blue.

(Here's the playhouse today! Back in action!)

Here I am cooking dinner at the party kitchen:

We put together the Ikea dresser a few weeks ago, and hung the shelf over girl's "wardrobe"!
