These gorgeous chunky legs have been keeping me busy (as well as my bigger boys!). Don't you just want to gobble them up? Charlie is 6 months now and is getting cuter by the day.....I can't believe how quickly 6 months has gone!

I have a heap of nursery tours for you, which I'm hoping I'll get more than 5 minutes today to put together for you (they have been sitting in my inbox for weeks!)!
Oh and I'm having issues with my computer (working on hubby's now)so until I get that fixed, things will be a bit quiet!

Boom Boom (shake shake the room)

Oh, I know....shocking title.

However, when I was flipping through the latest edition of Lonny, I noticed the above boom box print. I think it would be great for a funky boys room!

Big Boy Room Tour: Cohen's Colourful Room

Just this week, I showed you Finley's gorgeous nursery. This time it is her big brother, Cohen's turn! Carley Kay put together 3 year old Cohen's room and I love that it doesn't scream "hey I'm a 3 year old boy that loves trains/monsters/trucks" etc, etc that is sooo prevalent in big boy rooms!

Just like Finley's nursery, Cohen's room is colourful, happy and eclectic. Such a lovely room for a little boy to grow up in!

Head over to Carley's blog for all the details!

{Design Board} On ya bike

Hugh has a good little friend called Archie and lucky little Archie is getting a new baby in about 4 more weeks (side note: Hugh and Archie's dads have been friends for a loooong time, so we plan on Hugh and Archie being mates for a long time too and then Charlie is either going to be mates with new baby or if new baby is a girl, we'll just arrange a marriage! - see told you it was a side note) Archie is upgrading to a big boys room!

I knew Archie loves to watch his Poppy ride his bike and Archie loves to ride as well, so I decided to throw together a bike themed room. Archie already had the big pieces of furniture and a few other bits and pieces that I incorporated, but I kept everything low cost and a few DIY pieces as well.

I think the room will be perfect for a number of years.....not to babyish and not to grown up!

Now....just need to put together the nursery for #2!

Nursery Tour: Brydie's Calming Elephant Nursery

You may remember here, where I showed you a design board I put together for a friend.....Kari and I were marching girls together (yes, you heard correctly....marching girls. NOT baton twirlers) what seems like sooooo long ago, about 15 years ago actually!

Anyway, Kari & her hubby welcomed gorgeous Brydie into the world nearly a year ago and I finally got organised to get the nursery photographed (by the lovely Lisa Nankervis, who also photographed Hugh's Nursery for Little One Baby Magazine).

The nursery was designed to be gender neutral before Brydie arrived and I gave them options of colour palettes for boy and girl options to add in later (I was sure Brydie was going to be a boy, based on my very scientific process - which was based on absolutely nothing).

We left the paint the same colour, which was Solver Smoke Pearl (I know because I did their colour selection when they built their new home!) and added in reds and pinks. The rocking chair is a family heirloom which was recovered in a gorgeous neutral fabric.And oooohhhh how soft and gorgeous the rug is!Sweet elephant prints from Trafalger SquareThe elephant decal (below) was made by The Wallsticker might not be able to see it but it has Brydie printed on it.We had this print custom made by My Sweet Prints. It's the words to Kari & Clinton's first dance as a married couple!
