Mission: Brighten up a child's room

Happy Friday everyone! Today I thought it would be fun to decorate a child's bedroom, although looking at the finished collection - this "kid" wouldn't mind living in a room filled with all this wonder! By the way, if you're more of a do-it-yourself-er I've provided links below to a couple of cool DIY projects for the Tipi, lantern garland and blackboard.

Thank you so much for your comments + emails + tweets this week - I'm so happy that you like the new look. I have to admit I was a little scared of getting yelled at for changing the banner :)

See you next week!



A handful of these items are from Bianca and Family another wonderful shop where I can do some major damage (they ship internationally!)

1. mirror 2. angel wings (more colors) 3. tipi 4. personalized lanterns 5. cushion 6. vintage quilts 7. sack
8. chalkboard 9. mobile 10. stool

DIY Projects:
Make your own Tipi (tee-pee), or one that uses recycled materials.
Paint a chalkboard wall with this paint or something similar. Or how about this super cool chalkboard wall calendar/organizer ...and who hasn't seen this amazing tutorial for lighted paper garlands!

those wings are pretty great - and could really grow with a little girl.

while not nursery decor, i've been seeing a babywearing wrap with beautiful wings on etsy a couple place.

Ok, it's been said, but...WOW! Yes the items themselves are great, but the way you arranged the collage was great.
Mind if I link to this from my new blog?
Thanx an advance ;o)

I LOVE LOVE these lanterns. Any ideas where to find them or a tutorial on how to DIY. The reference link doesn't work :/

Hi Chris, I just checked on the reference link - it should be working (although it definitely took a while for the the page to load!)

http://www.poppytalkhandmade.com/node/957 this is the link? It says "Page not found" when I click.

Marichelle said...

Hi Chris, Oh sorry about that - thought you were referring to the DIY link. Here's a working link to those lanterns: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25164608

Thx for letting me know about that, I originally linked to the poppytalk handmade market link (that specific market is over).
