My apologies for being MIA lately! Between the last month of this pregnancy, chasing around a toddler and two dogs and planning to move, I am so exhausted and have barely opened up my computer. I am very much looking forward to April arriving when we will hopefully be in our new home with a new baby and my energy levels should return to some semblance of normal (even if I’ll be a different kind of exhaustion).
Throughout the history of this site, I have always been a big fan of Etsy, and that’s even more the case now as I can finally start thinking about decorating rooms in a home and, let’s be honest, occasionally dressing two kids in matching clothing. It’s one of the only “stores” I’ve looked at and purchased from recently, so I thought today I’d share a few of my favorite finds from the site.
I am pretty obsessed with this Framed Paper Doll Portrait, although the artist is only adding people to the waitlist at this point. Since our family will be complete after baby two arrives, I think I may need to have one of these made … and it will, of course, include our two dogs!
I’ve long detailed my own struggles with not drinking enough water, but I really need to work on this after the baby arrives. I’m thinking of investing in these Inspirational Water Bottles, which will keep me on track throughout the day. You actually get four water bottles, which means you can always have cold water and don’t have to immediately think to refill when one bottle is empty.
OK, this No Scrubs Doormat just makes me laugh. I’m probably going to have to find a spot for it at our new home.
I am not particularly sentimental and never made a photo book for our wedding. I have a few wedding-related items, though, and I think a Wedding Photo Box like this one would be the perfect place to store them. Double bonus? This design almost exactly matches our invitations!
Every night before my son goes to bed I say “good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bugs bite bed.” (Yes, that’s an edit I made as a child.) As such, I think this Sleep Tight Cushion Cover is a must for his bedroom… and maybe for the new baby, too!
I know cotton candy is just sugar and I know marshmallows are just sugar, but considering there are two things I love more than cotton candy and marshmallows, these Cotton Candy Marshmallows are a must-have in my book.
I really don’t like the movement that kids shouldn’t learn cursive since typing is the way of the future. I LOVE cursive and think this Save Cursive Tee is a must-have for my wardrobe.
As long-time renters, we’ve never hung much on the wall, but now that that’s about to change I can’t wait to fill my walls up with photos and other cute decorations, including this Home Sweet Home Embroidery.
I have long been in love with the signs from House of Belonging on Etsy, and now I just need to narrow down which one I want the most. This Build a Longer Table Sign is a great option, this sign would be great for a child’s room, and this love your family sign is one of my all-time favorites. So many great options!
I like most of the ornaments that we hang on our Christmas tree to have some sort of meaning. My husband and I have our childhood ornaments, but then we also have ornaments that mark different vacations we have taken or different periods in our lives together. Obviously, an Our First Home Ornament will be on the list for this year… as well as another baby’s first Christmas ornament!
