Julie Morstad is the Bees Knees

After a little over a year, I am thrilled to see that Julie Morstad's Alphabet cards (whom I am sure everyone I know has heard me rave about), are HERE!!!! Julie is an artist that is represented by the gallery I managed (Atelier Gallery), and is definitely one of my favourites-before I even started working there to be honest.... Last year we had an exhibition of the series (original drawings) and the entire set sold. Wowsa. I wanted to buy 'H', but ahhh, what can you do. Each card features a unique illustration to accompany the letter: 'L' is a rabbit writing a letter, 'I' is for ice fishing...clever girl.

Snap a set up here.

Etsy Find

I rather vaguely typed in 'art' to the search section in Etsy, and at around page 35 came across JacqleenBleu's shop. Her gorgeous dreamy images make me want to wallpaper my house with them.

Can't take my mind off of you.

15 days til due date. All I can think of is baby. I am pretty sure we have everything ready. Well, the play list for the delivery room is ready and that was a big thing. Some real gems. I am hoping that baby is born to something by Sigur Ros. Maybe 'Staralfur' or 'Hoppipolla'. Yeah, 'Hoppipolla' would be such a great intro to our weird little planet. I wonder if I'll have enough control that when i am about to push baby out to say, "Would you mind skipping forward a few tracks?' Ha! Or what about 'Feeling Good' by Nina Simone? Hmmmm.....Or what about Lykke Li's 'Dance dance dance'?

The nursery is officially done now too. We found a wonderful little dresser at an antique store. Matt sanded it down a bit and we really liked the finished effect. Not sure if it'll stay like this for long, but it looks super swell right now. Haven't put the knobs back on yet. We bought 3 succulents for the room too. Our bird mobile is almost finished too. Yeah, Matt and I decided we aren't the greatest of sewers, but it's the thought that counts right? (It should look like this...)

And last but not least, here is the outfit we picked out for baby to come home in. Ummmm, how adorable is that little hat????? (If you look closely you can see the shadow from my belly at the bottom...Ha!)
