Whooo's There?

Hi! Welcome to my blog. This is a place for me to give updates on The Bear, The Hubs and me, and cute projects I'm working on or would like to work on.

First up is Bear's new bedroom. As some of you are already aware of, we'll be moving to a bigger apartment in four weeks and four days so I've already started planning K's new bedroom theme for a few months. I've been pursuing other design and craft blogs hours on end in the evenings gathering ideas to borrow and implement in both her room and our new PLAY ROOM! Yay! I can't wait to give her more room to play. It's going to be weird though because I'm so used to her being able to seamlessly go from her bedroom to the living room when she wants to "zoom" her cars around but in the new place, the bedrooms and play room will be upstairs while the living room and kitchen will be downstairs. It's going to be a transition for us all but I'm sure we'll manage and be used to it very quickly.

Anyway, back to the matter at hand, K's new bedroom. I'm going with an owl/woodland creatures kind of theme. I'm not 100% sure of the color we'll paint her room yet (tan, blue, green, yellow???)  After you see what I have picked out for her, maybe a suggestion or two would be very helpful. So here is what I have so far (and mind you, all of these items are cuter in person (in my opinion, at least).

Duvet cover (colors are brighter in person)

This is a close up of her sheets.

Lamp (it's a nicer green in person, not quite so yellow looking as in the picture. Note the mushroom on the pull chain - love it!)

Owl pillow (super cute!)

Hedgehog bean bag chair (she has this in her current room and calls it her "bean")

Large canvas print for the wall (the color in this picture is a bit dark and it's much bigger than you'd think)

Beanie Baby Owls from Mom (she got us all of them except for the bottom right one.)

There's a bunch more to talk about when it comes to the wall decals and all I'm going to do with them but I'll save that for a Part 2 so I have something to write about tomorrow.


  1. I'm so glad you've started a blog, sis! The stuff you have so far is very cute. Without seeing it in person, I can't make a good suggestion on the color for the walls...except that I think a peach or light yellow might make everything pop nicely. And the print that you got for the wall reminds me very much of my favorite little comic book owl, Owly. He's fantabulous, and I think it's fawesome that someone who looks like him will be watching over Bear.

    And now, before my comment exceeds your post in length, I'm out. :)

  2. Yay blogging! I love the owl stuff, waaaayyy cute. You have so many colors going on with the bed and prints, I would stick to a neutralish color for the walls - light tan maybe. Very cute sweetie! :)

  3. I'm really loving the Owl motif. I saw an idea from a nursery that maybe you can use for K's play room. Get some Chalkboard paint and paint part of or a whole wall with it so she can color with chalk on her wall... and it doesn't have to be black. Thought it was a real cute idea :)

  4. I am soo excited about your blog Jenn! I love the owl stuff! I would go with a neutral color like light tan. If you do a color, a pale yellow would look cute since there isn't an overwhelming amount of yellow in all of the other decor. (It would help bring out the yellow) I also may be partial to pale yellow cause its my favorite color and was the color of my bedroom as a kid.
