Gettin' Cribby With It

again, just couldn't resist the title...
I am thrilled to say that we finally have a place to rest our sleeping princess - or as I prefer, a more realist approach - a place to lay our screaming child when we simply can't take it any longer. Not only do we have a crib that we love, but we have some pretty cute bedding to accompany.

Follow me down crib hunting lane for a moment. I really thought I made some headway when we decided that white was our color of choice about a month ago. From there, however, it seemed as though decisions only got harder. Choices have ranged from:

Traditional

to... Vintage

to... Modern


to... ClassicOur final decision was based off of a combination of styles above (not too modern but funky in it's own way), size (not too big for our small nursery) and price (Brand new off of Craigslist from a couple who can't take with them to Hawaii - a steal!) We even drove almost 2 hours to pick it up last night.

Dick's crib from Bratt Decor. Why, yes! It would be appropriate to do a little jig for our crib right about now if that's what you're thinking.

Here is a peek at our Liberty of London bedding that I all but begged for from a woman on Ebay. She had the. only. set. on Ebay after it was sold out in Target stores. Finally, she gave in to my persistence and agreed to a 'Buy It Now' price; I snagged that puppy up with no shame (okay, maybe just a little shame for my sob story about not acting soon enough while it was availbale online).


I can't wait to get things all set up this weekend and to see it come together!

The crib is so great and the bedding is ADORABLE! Very well done. I had the utmost of faith in you and your taste, but it really is going to be a beautiful crib once it's all set up :)

I love it!! How cute and girly without being overly done. It's cool how we have very similar tastes!

I will be emailing you very soon to discuss our swap! I'm thinking June?
