If you didn’t know…Imogen is part mermaid…so obviously we had a mermaid party for her 5th birthday! This was probably my favorite! I even made a bubble chandelier!
Well, to say that I was super excited about Immi going to sleep in her own room would basically be a lie – A BIG FAT JUICY LIE – I was dreading that day…BUT seeing her so happy and proud about having her very own big girl room makes my mama heart do cartwheels! That mama struggle is real folks…SO heart-breaking to see your babies become, well, not babies…but the JOY (oh and it’s a powerful joy) that comes with seeing those babies grow and accomplish is so amazing. And even though I wasn’t excited about her leaving my bed…I wanted her to be excited. So we plotted out her perfected big girl room.
You probably recognize a bunch of the stuff. I like to use/buy stuff for her birthday parties, that I can repurpose – like the giant framed floral unicorn above her bed, you can see from her 3rd birthday party over at 100layercakelet.
Her favorite part of her room are these gorgeous giant flowers from Urban Walls. Now when she goes to other people’s houses, she says “you know what is a good idea? flowers on your wall…good idea, right?” And THEN – I came across this freaking amazing bed set….that was ON SALE…that matched PERFECTLY with the flowers at Target!
I got this headboard from Urban Outfitters during the Dorm Sale!! SCORE! I with they made it for a king size bed!
The cute gold wire shelf is part of Target’s Pillow Fort Collection. You know, the section you walk by and all you can hear are mom’s saying “OMIGOSH, so-and-so NEED this”….bravo target…bravo.
The teepee has been around since before Immi was born. You can see if in her old nursery from our old place over at Little Umbrella (formerly On To Baby).
The butterfly pin board was a total impulse buy. Our favorite mall, WestField UTC, is being remodeled and adding a ton of new stores, so we popped into Pottery Barn Kids to see what they were up to. Lord help us when all the development is done and there are 90 NEW SHOPS OF FIRST-TO-MARKET RETAIL AND HIGH END, CHEF-DRIVEN RESTAURANTS for us to spend our DOLLA-BILLS at. Be sure to check out all that is in store for us here.
Our Tassel Garland is from one of our most favorite Tassel Fairy, and fellow unicorn lover…Studio Mucci. I’m thinking we need another one to drape over the unicorn print… because there isn’t already enough sparkle :P. Whatchya guys think?
And yes…her mattress is on the floor. It eased my fear of her falling out of her bed and waking up…this way, she rolls out, she rolls out… no bombs, bruises…infact, the one time i saw that she rolled out, I don’t think she even woke up.
If I forgot to list something and where i got it, definitely feel free to ask about any of the other items you see here! // Plush Unicorn Head // Starry Globe Night Light // DIY Peg Dolls from Goose Grease.
Our independent, VERY opinionated little lady wanted to help every step of the way – from painting, to putting up the wall decals, to deciding what goes on the shelves. So it’s necessary to show some of the behind the scenes videos/shots. Seriously – cutest painting glasses ever! I love her so much. and I really can’t wait to see whats coming next with her. Now excuse me while i go plop my face in her pillow and take a big whiff of whats left of that sweet baby girl smell.
i should be turned into the blog services for being a neglectful blogger. i can’t believe i haven’t been on here for over a month! bad. bad. bad blogger. i really blame it on time. somehow time just doesn’t exist anymore. time has taken a vacation. to be fully truthful, i have enough time to shower like twice a week…the remaining days my poor hair gets loaded up with layers and layers of dry-shampoo. i blog, so that i can connect with other that share interests, have similar experiences, but then i disappear for months. BUT i have been gone for all good reasons…as previously posted, i opened my etsy shop, The Scalloped Window…and thanks to a bunch of you for word of mouth, and the world of social media, i have been BUSY! I am also starting to offer a couple more items in the shop, including floral letters, numbers and shapes. so, if you haven’t already, please check it out. i know, i know…the shop is ALSO looking pretty bare. i just can’t keep up! i am busy making custom requests, or finishing up reserved spots! do not worry though… i plan to have a surge of new posted items after the holidays!! in time for spring romances!
and yes…baby adore is officially one! ahhhh. we had a big ‘ol bash for her…ok, it was bigger than we thought it would be! but it is really amazing to know how much love and support we have out there. we are so thankful for everyone that came, and for those who wish they could have been there. you have know idea how much it means to have you all…ok ok, i am getting all sentimental…photos? SURE! these are not all of them…and whenever time decides to come around again…i will definitly tell her i need more of her to upload more photos from the party! for those of you who are on instagram…i encourage you to follow me on there. i am a lot better at keeping up with photos on there.

ETSY! The place to go and find just about ANYTHING
you could think of…handmade, vintage…supplies. I have
been obsessed with etsy for quite sometime, dreaming of one day
having my own little shop (and feeding my retail addiction), and
becoming filthy, filthy rich…hahahaha! well, i’m not quite
filthy rich in terms of cash (but oh-so-rich in life) but…..I DO
HAVE AN ETSY SHOP! My shop, The Scalloped Window, is a place for me
to sell whatever crafty little projects I am into at the
moment. The scallops are the same scallops from the blog
(ahhhhh, all ties together!) For now, my obsession is floral
anything, and what is more AWESOME, with a side of Hippie, than
flower crowns? NUTH’IN! a special thanks to the very
lovely O! My Darlings for being my model 🙂
and no, it’s not perfect yet. i plan to put up alternate
photos of the headbands…but things with one leg TAKE SO MUCH
LONGER…and I am just too excited to have my shop open, that i
couldn’t wait. one. second. longer. so, here it is!! The Scalloped Window . and no…i
didn’t include a photo. i was totally planning on it, until i
went to insert a screenshot of the shop, but i want you to GO SEE
IT! hahaha. motives.
