Christmas is coming

Has it really been 2 weeks since my last post?  Yep.  Is it really the night before December 1st?  Yuppers. Is life really hurtling along at warp speed?  DEFINITELY.

Big kids are watching Polar Express & H is tucked into bed with a belly full of milk.  So I have a window of opportunity to blog.

{we always watch this at Christmastime }

I have been thinking about some decorating ideas for Christmas.  I bought a few of these star pendant decorations at Ikea in silver:

I'm inspired by the folks at Terrain and their beautiful paper stars:

{ star light star bright... }

I found a bunch of naturally-inspired decor ideas on my sister Leah's Pinterest site {you can click through to the actual website here}:

{ danish delights } 

I am officially infected with the Christmas spirit.  In a good way.

Merry Merry!

No Wall Flowers Here

Gabrielle Blair's blog post on Babble today got me mulling over wallpaper in kids' rooms.  Check out the offerings from Paper Boy.  Love love love the "ere be dragons" line:

{suitable for dragon trainers & knights-in-training alike }

I've always had a soft spot for Paddington Bear which is available through Jane Churchill:

{ very London with the double-decker }

And this hot air balloon paper from Schumacher used here by Miles Redd:

{ love the striped ceiling/wallpapered walls combo }

Hugo's room is bare bones right now and these vision of wallpapers dancing in my head gives me loads of inspiration.
