crib and wall art.

we got the crib put together about two weeks ago. i was fairly surprised how quickly that CJ and i put the crib together. from box to set-up took less than an hour and a half.

finally, we found some pretty awesome wall art to go above miss Vs crib. i didn't want to post the crib with a blank wall above it. the typical ribbon hanging letters are completely not our style and are so overly done these days that i wanted something fresh and clean. i found these ridiculously presh white butterflies at target. i love that they are not flush with the wall, and are not stickers.

ps. i am so sad that i cannot find a solid white bumper for under $30 that i like for her crib. im such a cheapo. ::tear::


  1. How about just under $30? :P
    @ - Crib Bumper by bb Basics $29.99

    Love the butterfly decals! I agree with you, ribbon letters are SO overdone.

  2. Love the butterflies. Its the perfect touch. has solid white for $23.99

  3. How about a breathable bumper from BRU? Its safer. We switched out our regular bumper at 5 months when Ian started rolling in his crib at night. He would sleep with his face smashed against the bumper so I went with this one instead. Plus it's less than $30 and you can find coupons for Babies R Us online.

  4. thanks ladies. i was looking at the breathable ones, but i thought they looked cheapy, but they have great reviews.

  5. Hey no bashing the wall letters ;)
    I LOVE those butterflies though! I've never seen anything like that where it's not stuck to the wall... you gave me an idea if I ever have another girl!

  6. right after i posted that cj was like "i bet you will piss a few readers off that already have the wall letters". ooooopsy. :)

    i still love you though mrs. f.

  7. Wonderful finds here! Also, I made an interesting discovery. Here’s an excerpt from an article I wrote about it this month…
    Bring Out The YOU In Your Home Decor!
    Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Different tastes in decor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?
    Bring out the Y-O-U!
    Make a statement and let your personality shine through! Add your zing to make it pop. Hang something personal on the wall with a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. The trend for decor is becoming more and more personalized.
    Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own individual style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
