Gigi's Nursery

This is pictures of Gianna's nursery. It's still a work in progress, so your thoughts on the space are welcome. I made her crib bedding since I couldn't find anything I liked, the crib was from Grandma's house and I refinished it white. The pink mirror was gold and used to hang in our living room, the dresser was a $20 thrift store find that was refinished as well. The vintage chandie was found on craigslist for $15.00! The next thing I would like to do is purchase a comforter for the bed that occupies the space. The white smocked duvet is from Target's Simply Shabby Chic line and the pink rose bedding is from Land of Nod. Maybe we should just purchase both and switch them out every once in a while. What do you think?

Summer Lovin'!!!

I just love summer desserts. No wait, make that all dessert! I found this picture recently, I think it was on Country Living's website, and I've been inspired. Sherbert Pops!!! How good do those look? I think I'll try to make some sort of frozen confection in the near future. Seeing as how it was 95 degrees here in sunny South Florida today, it's probably not a bad idea. I just love colors of this one too, reminds me of my daughter's nursery which is still a work in progress. I think I'll do a post of it in the near future so you can give me your input on some finishing touches.

Happy Monday!

We recently moved back to South Florida, and while the sun shining for at least part of the day is a welcome change, there are some things I miss about Chicago and the midwest in general. When we moved to the suburbs of Chicago 6 years ago I fell in love with the city, the culture, the fabulous antiques and vintage buildings that surrounded me and the many different flowers that were cultivated through the seasons changes. With the month of June here I realized what I was missing around my home, my favorite flower, peonies. Beautiful, big, gorgeous peonies that are surely popping up everywhere this week. It's far too hot here in Ft. Lauderdale for these beauties to survive so I went on a little walk through internet gardens to pick my favorite flower. I hope they brighten your day as much as they did mine.
