What a gorgeous idea - paper balloons! Love it :)

I'm not sure if I already posted this, but congratulations on your pregnancy!!

Do you know the blog Aesthetic Outburst? My friend Abbey writes it and she's got an amazing talent for making/thrifting/finding awesome decor for her house and her kid's rooms. They make so many projects together as a family. I'm sure you'll find just the right balance!

Abbey's blog:

I think it's a really good idea to make your own things for the baby and to buy things second hand. People spend a LOT of money these days, on babies, but I think there would be something so satisfying about being 'resourceful'.

Little t! I love it.

Congratulations--what a grand adventure. Will be following along and cheering.

Also, I've got your apricot blossoms hanging in my entryway. They make me happy every day.

And in case you're interested, the Japanese balloons are called "kami-fusen."


Congratulations! This is wonderful news!!!
I can't wait to see what you will create for your nursery.

Now that I started my maternity leave, I finally have some time to craft. And the good thing is that most projects are very simple and are actually fun to make.

Love the Japanese balloons :)

i've already bought some inexpensive art for the nursery for the baby i don't even have :) i also buy vintage and used children's books when i find them. totally weird, but whatever. and i am not even trying to get pregnant. i just know i want children in the future, and book collections are hard to just get overnight! i also confess that i love to decorate.
