Scenes From Our Weekend + Winner

Sep 30, 2013

Whew, we had a busy weekend. Matt has a trial coming up so he basically slaved away at the office all weekend and my parents and I worked super hard organizing and getting the nursery ready. I’m exhausted. 

 A few sneak peaks, don’t want to give too much away before the big reveal.  All I have left to do is hang curtains, switch out knobs on our white dresser, and install overhead light fixture.  We are in business.

My Dad assembled Sterling’s old crib in like 20 minutes.  I swear it would have taken me all day to do it.  He really is such a good handy man.  He also installed new shelves in two of our closets and hung numerous pictures for me!

Crib Sheet is Katie in Lilac from Biscuit Home ||  Mongolian Lamb Pillow is West Elm ||  Pom-Pom Throw is Hattan Home || Ink Dye Rug Lulu & Georgia || Purple Hippo

I hung up a few of baby girl’s clothes in her closet.  Tiny velvet hangers make me very happy, so do her clothes I wish some came in the adult version.

Charleston peeps, I have an old tufted chair that used to be in the nursery that I am getting ready to put on Craigslist but thought I would mention it on here first.   I adore this chair we just have no where to put it now in our tiny house with our expanding family.   I actually thought about turning into a rocker for the nursery but I have my great grandmothers rocking chair I really wanted to use.  The fabric would need to be recovered it has some ink marks and stains but it is a great chair for a bedroom, kids room or nursery.  It is from Mecklenberg furniture so it is solid nice piece of furniture.  I’m asking $75 if any locals are interested email me at nataliemason24@yahoo.com.

While we were out picking up organizational stuff I found the most awesome dragon painting at Goodwill for, a grand total of $3.  We hung it in Sterling’s room under the silhouette by WayWay and I am kind of loving it.  I am going to eventually get a new layered mat but for now it works.

Sterling also got a new chest from my grandfathers house.  I love the vintage look and feel of it and how special it was his great grandfathers.  And yep that is a light up spider-web you see in his window and pumpkin on his chest. Sterling is obsessed with Halloween so we let him put some decorations in his room:)  The clutter drives me crazy but it makes him happy!

Went to JCrew to try and buy another swing sweater because I love mine so much.  Side note the swing sweater in back in stock online in smaller sizes in the pink color if anyone missed out. They did not have any in stock in store of course but I found a fab alternative, the Boyfriend Sweater.  It is made of the same material and loose fitting as well it just has a v-neck instead of crew-neck.

I got the tan color and I am really loving it.

Sterling has been obsessed with dressing his monster Rufus in the baby’s clothes.  Is this what kids do before they have a sibling?  He wants to change his outfit everyday, at least he will be helpful dressing the baby, right?

This weekend, I discovered Clint Eastwood’s son, can we discuss how good looking he is?  I mean really?  He is giving Zac Efron a run for his money.
