The Nursery: Revisited

January 24, 2013 duchessoffork 5

When I first decided not to find out the gender of this baby, I had grand dreams of a lovely taupe and cream gender neutral nursery. Easier said than done! I’ve spent countless hours looking for bedding, but I couldn’t decide on anything. If I did come across some …

I have a lot of thoughts swirling around in my head these days, so here’s a little word vomit for your Tuesday. 1. It just hit me like a ton of bricks that Julia won’t be my only child for much longer. I’m obviously excited about our new addition, but I̵ …

How far along? 30 weeks Size of baby: The size of a head of cabbage Total weight gain: +19 pounds. Somehow I’ve only managed to gain two pounds in the last two months. I really don’t know how that’s possible! I guess you burn a lot of calories while moving a …

I love browsing through Etsy shops when I’m on the hunt for something unique and fun. The amount of talent that so many shop owners have is unreal! I’ve had a few great successes ordering from Etsy, so I thought I’d share my favorites. Plum Paper Designs Ima …

January 8, 2013 duchessoffork 3

As kids get older, they begin to accumulate more and more stuff. For a while now I’ve wanted a good quality storage system for Julia’s books and toys. I didn’t want to impulsively buy something cheap that would break in a year. I wanted something that will l …
