Let’s get personal

This hand-written personalized jewelry is such an original gift idea! I’m always looking for something different. Something out of the box. And this my friends is just the thing. Get it for your bestie, sister or drop a hint to your man.

I couldn’t pick just one…and there’s more from where these came from by the Oklahoma couple behind Love Well Handmade. They also give back 5% of the sale to various do-good partners.

Natural and Neutral Baby Nursery

You’re going to have a baby! Now wait 9 months. What do you do with yourself except get bigger, sleep and decorate the nursery of course! No, I’m not pregnant. Yes, I will help pregnant friends decorate their nurseries. It’s a win-win really.

A friend from high school lives nearby and she’s due with baby #2 any day. She has a busy two-and-a-half-year-old, and while she has a good sense of her style, pulling together a nursery on her own just wasn’t in the cards. Insert me. With a love for decorating, but no real need to re-decorate my bedroom…again, I told the expecting mother to focus on the whole growing a human in her belly thing and I would take care of the whole styling a room for said human in her belly.

I developed an inspiration board on Pinterest to get an idea of her likes and dislikes, and from there we collaborated on products and ideas. I probably sent her too many emails, with too many links, but we landed on some great items. The final result is a peaceful, simple, soft, natural and neutral nursery with traditional and contemporary touches.

If you or you know someone who would like a little nursery decorating nudge please contact me at christi@tillyandfran.com
