{miscellany monday}

 i'm linking up today with my bff carissa over at lowercase letters for miscellany monday.

what's in a name?
baby girl is still nameless. baby naming is hard, well, for us at least. we had a boys name already picked out, but a girl's name...we have a few that we like, but we can't decide on what we want to call her for the rest of her precious life.

sneak peak
come back tomorrow for a sneak peak at baby girl's nursery decor.
here's a teaser...

this little man loves the beach...

this little man also loves his cousin and really enjoys following him around...

easy envelope pillows
i purchased pillow inserts from target {2 per pack for only $5.00} a {long} while back, with the intentions of making pillow covers to put them on our couches. well, i'm slow in my projects! but, here are two that i made. they aren't quite finished...i want to add some decoration...perhaps rosettes...but, i love the's just a gray cotton...and were super easy to make...and i'm a beginner sewer! i followed this tutorial:
{the pillow to the left is the front view, and the right is the back.}
i'll post pictures after i add the detail to them, because i have no idea when i'll be motivated to finish mind is on the nursery...

i love pictures of sleeping babies, especially when they're of this handsome little guy...

happy monday!


  1. Our Samuel didn't have his name until the day that he was born. Now, I realize that he has the exact name that he was meant to have -- but, boy oh boy, that was patience when we didn't know the name.

    The nursery looks lovely.

    Blessings on your Monday.
