Let’s Get it Arted in Here / worst blog post title ever

I spend a lot of time mentally decorating my baby’s imaginary nursery, since the nugget won’t get her own room for another 6 months or so. But that’s no reason not to start storing up paint chips and hoarding art and doodads like a squirrel stuffing its cheeks with nuts for the winter. (Sometimes I do this with bagels but that is another thing all together and has yet to get me through even one winter.)

Below I’ll focus on just art / posters / prints/ wall hangings, and save paint colors / furniture / goo-gaws / bedding, for another post. Sound excellent? Great.

Look. Kids gotta learn this thing one way or another so if you are into modern design or have a geometric / minimalist theme going on, hook yourself up with this poster from Etsy seller, Bread + Butter.

To this day I still cannot alphabetize without mumbling the entire song under my breath and that is either because I smoked away too many brain cells in my younger days, or because I never had a cool poster like this. Measures 18×24″ and costs $35.
