Moving to These Walls of White

After much thought, I've realized that in a season of my life, I was very interested in amazing children's products. I even thought about starting a toy shop of sorts but I jokingly refer to us as nomadic peoples since we do move, often, with the military. I've realized that I have always had a perennial interest is architecture and interior design. I've been an architectural hobbyist of sorts ever since I was a child and toured my first historic houses. Thus, I'm starting a new blog.

Please come visit me at http://thesewallsofwhite.blogspot.com/ where I'm planning on recording ideas for nomadic peoples like myself. Decorating without paint/renovation, decorating for rentals, profiling favorite blogs, looking to the past for design ideas we can apply to the present, etc. I hope you'll join me!

Storybooks Online

I love these sites. Much better than watching a cartoon. Now http://www.onemorestory.com is a subscription service (what a great gift) but http://www.storylineonline.net is free!

Nursery Ideas!

One lovely friend decided to give her son's old nursery set to another expecting friend. The furniture was in perfect condition and it made for just a beautiful nursery. I had to share her innovative nursery ideas here. This is the crib and changing table from Bratt Decor, she added the white star finials to the crib for such a unique look:
She accented the white washed walls with bead board and this adorable bedding from Pottery Barn Kids:And lastly a sweet navy blue custom gingham rocker form Posh Tots. Her lucky little boy has such an adorable room, I had to share!

Tat'r Tots

Car seats are supposed to be safe but sometimes the designs are less than aesthetically pleasing. Tat'r Tots is a brilliant company that makes car seat covers, among other things, that can really jazz up any old, dreary, grey car seat for around $100! They are available through their website or one of my favorites, Tickatoo.
