Category Archives: at home

anyone who’s been following this little blog for a while probably knows we’re pretty big fans of adventuring around here, so when i came across this screen printed map on etsy a while back, i knew our home had to have one.

now, thanks to colleen from walsh-walsh & son, one of you can have the map of your choice (and there are lots of choices!) for your home as well.

as always, there are a few ways to enter, and you’ll have to leave a separate comment for each entry (three comments if you enter all three ways).
1. leave a comment below with somewhere you love to head when you’re in the mood for adventure, or somewhere you’ve yet to travel to, but would like to see
2. pin the map listing on pinterest
3. add the map to your etsy favorites

contest closes friday, august 30

good luck, happy adventuring, and thanks again to walsh-walsh & son for this giveaway!

congratulations hannah!

as mentioned last month, lila’s room will be undergoing a facelift over the next little while. her closet began collecting goodies for this new look since before her current room was complete so i’m more than a little excited to get started!

here are some of my favourite goodies (after the wallpaper and the bed, of course) 🙂

1. painting (remember this photo) . 2. lamp . 3. cloud pillow . 4. pouf . 5. cushion . 6. duvet

there is a whole lot more awesomeness tucked away in that closet of hers and i can’t wait to see it all come together!

(also currently on the go around here: finally finishing cole’s nursery, decorating the new mini playroom, a boot room/laundry room that is currently in the planning stages, as well as a handful of other projects around the house. hopefully there will be a lot of progress in our home to share this year!!)

cole’s nursery has been sitting almost finished for a good six months now — i suppose it’s about time i get the art hung on the walls before he turns one! here are a few little details to tide over those of you who’ve been asking to see the room — if all goes according to plan, hopefully i’ll be sharing the whole thing before his birthday rolls around 😉

a couple of years ago, as i was finishing up lila’s toddler bedroom, i came across this dotswold wallpaper and immediately knew it needed be in her room one day. last year, i ordered a swatch and fell even more in love. earlier this year, i finally went to order some, and anthro has discontinued selling it 🙁 i’ve been in touch with customer service and they are unable to share the designer so i’m reaching out into blogland to see if anyone out there can help!

even if i can only get my hands on a small piece, i’d be happy. happier yet if i can find a couple of rolls…

i know it’s a long shot, but if you have used this paper (or know someone who has) and would be willing to sell any unused portion i would be all sorts of happy. or if you can check your roll and see if there is a designer other than anthropologie listed anywhere on the product, perhaps i can find it for sale somewhere else! (edit: i’ve found the designer! now to find out if it is being printed by anyone else. still definitely on the lookout if anyone has any they’d be willing to part with.)

fingers crossed!!
