Well sort of. The wallpaper samples for the nursery remodel have arrived. Ive been staring at them for a couple of days now and am trying to imagine how each might look covering an entire 1015 ish wall and I have to be honest I love them all. Im pretty sure that any one of these designs would be so perfect in here. Which oh which to choose?
Here they all are up close if its hard to see the above at an angle.
Most of these I shared here when I was debating on what direction to take my solo statement wall. Clearly Im still debating, even when I was sure that ordering my favorites and hanging them up would help settle that nursery quandary!
All of these wallpaper samples are from Spoonflower, an awesome site that lets you design and print your own fabric and wallpaper (oh search thousands of predesigned options by different artists, sort of like Etsy).

A quick update to share regarding the trending colors that are making a friendly splash in this casa. That is to say that gold might be the new pink in this house. Or maybe theyre tied at this point (as evidenced here, here, here, here and here), but Im noticing that Ive been drawn to gold-hued home decor for a while now and that it has begun to pop up with sparkly and brushed gusto over the past couple of months.
Lots of pops of pink. Something so soothing and warm and inviting, no? Pe

This is peak season for hummingbirds but if you want them to be your guests, you’ll have to offer some hummingbird hospitality. This means providing them with the same services you’d expect in a good hotel: appealing food and drink, and a comfortable place to sleep. When you translate that into the world of hummingbirds, all you have to do is prepare a sugar solution and put it into a well-designed feeder. That’s their food, drink, and lodging right there.
“Wait a minute,” you might say. “You talk about lodging, but I didn’t even know hummingbirds sleep, let alone sleep on a hummingbird feeder.”
Yes, these flying miracles with hearts that beat up to 1,000 times per minute and wings that carry them as far as 6,000 miles over the course of a year, do stop and snooze. And one of the
