EAT Sign - Cougar town

Anyone out there watch Cougar town? I caught a few episodes last season. I think the title is a bit misleading which is unfortunate. It's actually really funny and has a lot of heart. The best part about the show is the set design. Jules' (Courtney Cox) home is amazing! Especially, her kitchen! Wowza.
My friend Raelene is a fan of the show and loved the EAT sign that hangs in the kitchen.

best photo I could find!
She decided to be resourceful and make her own. I stopped by her place the other day and thought it was adorable and had to share!

She bought the letters, glued on some patterned scrapbook paper, then sealed them with Modge Podge.

Thanks for sharing Rae! You're so crafty:)

Nurseries of Note

A few of my friends are currently expecting little ones and we seem to be talking a lot about baby nurseries. One friend, Crystal, asked me to help her put together a great room. However, she can't really pinpoint exactly what she likes. I decided to put together a collection of images so she could determine what style, color and feel she is going for.
I personally think Sarah Richardson really does do nurseries best. They are great examples of rooms that parents can enjoy being in too.

This rug really is amazing. It's the STOCKHOLM RAND from IKEA and is very affordable.

These curtains are also IKEA. My sister just bought them for her dining room and they are beautiful in person. The fabric is thick and they are lined.

I'm not usually a red fan but this room is adorable.

If you look closely, the trunk of the tree is lower and uppercase letters of the alphabet. The teacher in me loves that!

What about wall decals or stenciling? They work really well in nurseries to add some interest to the walls without wallpapering. Etsy is a great source for both.

I LOVE the giraffe. I've come upon this image many times and am drawn to it.
The rug really cozies up the room too.

Here are few more of my favorites. 

I think that blue is so great now for little girls. The Jenny Lind crib is a classic. I love it in yellow.

I really like the thick stripes. The tissue paper balls are easy to make and look super cute over the crib!

So soft and serene. It feels like this room might be in a cottage.

I really like the simple crib, orange chair and the yellow curtain panels.
With the right accessories this room could be great for a boy or girl. 

Gorgeous chandelier. Who says babies don't need a little glam?

Here is the red again. It's really growing on me!
This room is actually a large closet. So tiny but sufficient and sweet!

This is little Clara's room from the famous Young House Love.
Check out their amazing blog to see a complete behind the scenes of how the room came together.

Another giraffe. I'm starting to think that every nursery need a giraffe. They are really that cute!

I hope those in nursery mode were inspired by some or parts of these images. I can't wait to get planning Baby McDonald's room:)

I am off to Halifax for the night to celebrate my friend Virginia's 30th (Happy Birthday V!). You know how I love to read blogs so I thought I'd leave you with some links to my favorite posts and finds of the week.

Adventures in Renovating a Brooklyn Limestone has 18 guests blogging about a favorite room in their house. While you are there, check out her own home. It is stunning! *Note the frame around the TV above. It makes the tv over the fireplace a little more bearable. 

DECO my place is my new discovery. It is a site where you can upload photos of your home or view other people's interiors from around the world. I haven't added my own photos but have been inspired my many others. Seeing inside other homes is my guilty pleasure :)

I really love penny round tiles. I love them in white and in black. But I can't decide if I like this bathroom. Can there be too many pennies? As much as I love them I think I must say yes, it's too many. Although, it has come along way from those before photos!

This little girls' bedroom from Full House. I can't believe it was done for $250. It makes a difference if you are a good thrifter and can sew.

I grew up with Blue Boy and Pinkie in our dining room. With every makeover the prints went back up. One of my favorite bloggers Kristen at 6th Street Design School has put them up in her bedroom. I think they look pretty cool! Although, I'll admit I'm not running over to my parents to snag them.

Next week it is back to the shed. I only have one side primed - it 's time consuming! I also have a couple of DIY projects to share with you. Stay tuned! :)
