Chirp Chirp

We're in the midst of a huge winter storm here in NY/CT and all I can think about is Spring. It doesn't help that I just hung this mobile in the nursery. Oh Spring, when will you arrive?


The mobile is hand knitted by from a company called Blabla Kids. They have THE most adorable stuffed toys, mobiles and knitted clothing. Oh, and don't you just love ugly dolls (that's our ugly dragon named "Poe" in the background)? They crack me up!

I don't have much else to show you in the nursery. I'm STILL waiting for the glider from Serena and Lily (it's been over two months and I'm so not happy). I have no idea what is going up on the walls yet...I'm toying with the idea of doing a mural similar to this one from Pottery Barn, but since the room is so small, I fear it becoming too busy. I'm more of a less-is-more kinda girl.

I better get on this mural if it's going to happen...I don't have much time left!

I love how your wee one's nursery is turning out. Before our little guy, Jackson, was born in June, we bought a few Ugly Dolls as well-Big Toe has always been his favorite. They're just so hideous they're cute!

We'd love to get to the bottom of your glider delay. All of our gliders take 8-10 weeks from recipt of payment. Please email me at mary@serenaandlily.com so we can figure out what's keeping your glider!

I own a Blabla doll myself--a striped cat (a gift from my husband when he was still my boyfriend). The mobile is just precious and I love the wall color you've chosen-like a lovely cupcake frosting! Mural or not, that nursery is going to be perfect!

What a cute mobile. Adorable! I read your post about measuring large. My little sister is pregnant with her first baby and due on April 1st. Good luck to you!

Love the nursery! What happened to the cool, modern mobile? HeHe! the ugly doll is cute!

Suzie - I have the more modern mobile still, but this one just spoke to me - I had to have it. I think we'll use the modern one for when he gets a little bit older and is moved into his "big boy" room.

Loving the mobile! It's adorable. Is it so wrong to want to hang one in my own teenage room above my desk? I think not!

I collect Ugly dolls for my son. They are so cute and soft. Glad to see I'm not the only one who likes them:)
