Nesting...

I have had this crazy nesting thing going on lately. 
No, I'm not pregnant.
Maybe it is feeling like fall is coming.
That and my living area bugs me.
It is the most unfinished room in my home.
And has been since we have moved in.
(Ahem,) 6 years ago.

A few things I have picked up lately,  
for rooms other than
 the living room.
A new shower curtain.
Loving it.


And before it drives me absolutely nuts, I am going to make the twins some little
upholstered headboards. It has been on my list of "to do's" for far to long.
For me, the wanna be designer, it is quite a challenge to put together
a room for a boy and a girl. Not to boy and not to girl!
I want Blair to have a little bit of girly in a mostly boy household. 
But of course don't want to subject Jude to a pink bedroom. 
So I went to a fabric store the other day just to get some ideas.
Here is what caught my eye. 




I'll let you know what I come up with. 

Oh, and before I go,  I am debating on sending in my dining room for The Selby Contest.

What do you think?

Yes! Send it in! I can't believe that's your dining room! It looks like one you would see in a magazine! Great job on that!

ps. the fabric is adorable... my fav is the 2nd picture with the blues and denim. That could be super cute girl/boy!!
