Fun Day at the Zoo

Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day here in Alabama, so we decided to take full advantage of the day and spend it outdoors. Although I have lived in Birmingham for over 4 years, I had never been to the we went! We had a lot of fun and I got some cool shots of some of the creatures living inside.

My Latest Creative Project

In the past weeks (or months) the biggest creative project in my life has been the nursery of our soon-to-be baby girl. As of yesterday, I'm considering it done! It has been so much fun getting it all together, but it has also been a ton of work. Here are some photos of where our little angel will rest her head.

Here's her crib. The art on the wall is a decal from a fellow Etsy artist, Chuck E. Byrd. The design went perfect with the look I was going for in the room.

We got the valance to go with the bedding set. I am not one for "matchy matchy" rooms so I was unsure as to whether or not I would use it. After adding it on top of the curtains...I still wasn't sold. Well, after adding the sassy fringe and hot pink fuzzy balls to the base of it, I was definite that this was a perfect touch to the room. My very artistic, jack of all trades mother graciously added this touch for me!

The butterflies might be my favorite detail! The air vent in the room is close to them so they just lightly flutter around in the corner. I love them.

A painting to add some orange to the room. Painted by yours truly.

Hopefully as our little girl grows she will like her room as much as we do!
