Print Love

Hope you had a lovely weekend! Can't believe its Monday already, I had barely gotten started bossing my hubby around on stuff that NEEDS to be done immediately if not sooner!... The count-down is on; I now have less than three weeks to finish feathering my nest in preparation for my new baby and this week's obsession is... wall prints! You might remember I already painted a stripey wall which I then decorated with some fabric screens (will reveal the finished wall and the room for that matter soon, promise!) I'm really happy with that particular wall, so now I'm considering how to decorate the one adjacent to it, which is a little...well... dull, at present. I'm picturing a little grouping of cute prints, possibly mixed with some painted wooden alphabet letters. But I'm considering waiting to see what I have so I don't change my mind about my choice of colours!

In the meantime, I've been conducting a little research - you know, to save time once the baby is born! Here are a few of the faves on my shortlist I thought I'd share with you. There would have been more, but these ones took 47 years to load as it was.

Available here from Aussie designer and bloggy friend Janette from My Sweet Prints for US $22
