Swoon over it.

We’ve finally decided on bedding for our Little Miss! Even before I knew I was pregnant, I flipped through a Pottery Barn Kids catalog at work and fell.in.love. with this baby girl bedding.

Once we found out we were having a girl, I rushed back on to the website to drool over look at this precious set. But of course, why do I have to fall in love with something that’s a bazillion dollars from Pottery Barn

Go figure.

So, we shopped around Babies R Us and Target, and I looked on Amazon, but there was nothing that I was completely sold on. We went ahead and put one on the registry (a sort of vintage/shabby chic theme), but my mind still kept going back to the PB one.

Well, it must have been my lucky day, y’all, because last night I thought, hmm I wonder if PB has anything on sale? Ah ha! Right there in the second row of the sale section was my dream baby girl bedding…


I love that it’s yellow. And I love that it’s babyish, because after all she’s not going to be a baby for long, but it’s also not your typical baby girl bedding. It’s a little more original. 
[Well as original as you can get with Pottery Barn.]
The only difference is that her crib is a medium-dark wood. Should look great together since there’s brown accents in the set.

And I found this little DIY project that I think will go perfectly above her crib. Thank you, Martha.

What’s really ironic is that for the majority of my life, I’ve been afraid of birds. Like, terribly and anxiously afraid of anything with feathers. In fact, my fear was so bad that two years ago I had to be hypnotized because I wouldn’t even walk around a lake if there were ducks. Seriously. But it worked. And now, I want a bird theme? Weird. LOL.

What do y’all think? Honestly. I can take it.

P.S. Thanks, Mom! 🙂 you’re the best!!

    You made a great choice! We have this bedding for our little girl and the colors are so much prettier than in the picture. You will love it.

    aww I'm so happy that worked out for you! It was meant to be 🙂 It's so beautiful and I think it will look great with the brown.
    About the birds – I can't say I've ever known anyone with the same fear, but I'm SO glad you are over it now, because I think that project would look perfect above the crib! Can't wait to see the finished product!

    I'm going with a bird theme too for my little Miss 🙂 And I really like that bedding from pottery barn! How great that you got it on sale!

    I laughed because I just came across your blog and have been reading it for hours trying to catch up. I recently got married this year too. Although not expecting a baby, its been great fun to read about yours and Heather Drive's as my new sister-in-law is due in 3 weeks and the baby's gender and name have been kept a secret. I too am freakishly afraid of birds, and that made me laugh to know there is someone else out there with this crazy idea too!!!! How funny! Congrats on your marriage and newest addition, so glad I found this blog…
