a giveaway for a nursery

The baby kind of nursery, not the plant kind. We’re having the house painted next week, which means we effectively have to move out for a few days. Which is like uuugggghhh. Everything off the walls, removed from countertops, etc. And it’s turned into a rather satisfying bought of spring cleaning for moi.

I’m selling things on craigslist, giving things away, even having a garage sale on Saturday. It’s pretty awesome. One thing I’m ready to part with, but would like to see in a good home, is the strand of bunting I made for Dashiell’s room before he was born.

It’s served us well but now that Dashiell is such a big, mature guy I think he might need some updated decor. More manly and suitable for a 15 month old.

Plus I figured one of you might love some patterned flags to decorate your bebe’s room? They’re unisex, so as long as you don’t mind oranges and blues and browns it should work no matter who’s in there.

Leave a comment by the end of the week and I’ll announce a winner on Monday. Hooray! I do hope one of you wants it.

  3. Meghan said on May 24, 2011

    I would love this for my little girl’s room (due in September). We are in the middle of getting ready to move and the nursery has been shifted to the backburner. This would be a lovely start!

  4. Liz said on May 24, 2011

    This is adorable! We are expecting our first baby in July, we do not know the sex, can’t wait for the biggest surprise of our life! Baby’s nursery is, a work in progress. I love the mashup of colors and patterns in the bunting you made. It would be lovely to have in our nursery.

    I’d love to win :)

  10. tricia said on May 24, 2011

  13. Angela said on May 24, 2011

    I love the bunting! I am expecting a baby boy in six short weeks and this would be the perfect finishing touch for his nursery. Thank you!

  14. Meg said on May 24, 2011

    I am having a baby boy in August (due date is Aug. 14), and I would LOVE this for his room! The walls will be blue…the blue looks similar to the blue on the gingham flag. I think it would be perfect! Wish I was that creative!

  15. Alexis said on May 24, 2011

    oh I would love to win the bunting! Just working on babies room right now… I remember when you made these! so sweet.

  16. jill said on May 24, 2011

  17. logan said on May 24, 2011

    I’ve always loved that bunting, and envied your sewing skills.

    I’d love to just hang it in our sun room, or even in the nursery.

  18. hannah said on May 24, 2011

    This would look adorable in my little girls’ room. Lovely!

  19. mrs. may said on May 24, 2011

    Well– That is adorable! I’d love to own this beautiful bunting!

  20. Shannon said on May 24, 2011

    sometimes, blog posts come at the perfect time, i tell ya. my husband and i are starting the redesign of our will-be nursery this weekend and i was scrolling through bunting ideas on pinterest yesterday!

    i would love to give yours a happy home – it’s just perfect.

  21. Shannon Mac said on May 24, 2011

    I love them! Our babe will be here in a few weeks!!

  22. jenna said on May 24, 2011

    So, so sweet! I’d love to send this to my brand new (1 week old tomorrow) baby niece!

    side note: i made your twice-baked shortbread this weekend, and it was a major hit. i’m ashamed to say there are only…two pieces left from the batch…

  23. JenGil said on May 24, 2011

    It’s adorable & perfect! We would be thrilled and honored to hang this in either our little guy’s nursery or maybe even the playroom since all 3 kiddos would love it. You’re so sweet to share. Can’t wait to see what you come up with for Dashiell’s update!

  24. victoria said on May 24, 2011

  27. katherine said on May 24, 2011

    I’d love to have this hang in my classroom! I try to make my classroom feel more like a home than a room that has been thrown up on by a teacher store. I’d definitely take care of it, and it would see lots of children pass by it every day! :)

  28. Yin said on May 24, 2011

    The bunting is beautiful and would make a great addition in my son’s nursery. I was thinking of adding one in his room, but I’m not talented enough to work the sewing machine.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  29. redfrizzz said on May 24, 2011

    I’m a doula, and I serve a lot of clients who live in transitional shelters in my area. I’d love to give these as a gift to a mama trying to make a home.

  30. cathie said on May 24, 2011

  34. Jessica said on May 24, 2011

    This bunting is so adorable and I would love to win it to share with my new niece/nephew (they don’t know what sex but they’re going for bright colors).

  35. Katie said on May 24, 2011

    I love all your crafts and was admiring this one especially when you originally posted it! With baby boy coming into our world in August, this would definitely find a happy home with my and my hubbs :-)
    What a fun giveaway and happy garage sale-ing!!

  36. amy said on May 24, 2011

    i know a few cuties that would love this!!!

  37. Stephanie Clayton said on May 24, 2011

    So lovely & so lovely of you to offer it up to one of your readers! I feel you on the having to move out bit. We’re having some painting done this week too, so my two little ones & I have to find somewhere to spend our mornings each day this week: bleh. It’s worth it, though…

  38. Heather said on May 24, 2011

    Not only would I love this for my own baby (future baby, as we’re TTC), but it would be perfect for my BFF’s upcoming baby shower. Oooh, it would even make a great gift. :)

  39. Sarah said on May 24, 2011

    love. would totally LOVE for my due-next-month babe’s nursery nook.

  40. Nancy said on May 24, 2011

    Would love it for my new granddaughter. Since I never win anything, I think I will make her one myself. Love your blog.

  41. MIchelle said on May 24, 2011

    Hooray! I love this, and knowing that it was made with love makes it so special. The perfect addition to our first nursery!

  42. jen said on May 24, 2011

  43. April said on May 24, 2011

  44. jordan said on May 24, 2011

    oh my gosh! oh my gosh! my best friend’s due date was yesterday and i can’t wait to meet this little girl (she’s coming any day now). i have been thinking of what to get her for her impending birthday and this would be perfect!

  45. rosemariee said on May 24, 2011

    i love this, so cute! would be a great gift for a baby i know that was born sunday!

  46. Laura said on May 24, 2011

    Ooh, this is perfect! My baby is due in July, we opted not to find out the gender, and we have a lot of catch-up to do in preparing the nursery. And I love bunting!

  47. Marisa said on May 24, 2011

    Sweet! My son is due in August and because my taste leans a little bit toward the contrasty and moody, his nursery is shaping up to be rather serious. These would quickly brighten it up!

  48. Meghan said on May 24, 2011

    SO adorable. Reminds me of the all the handmade quilts my aunt used to make for her children. I’ve been lucky enough to have been handed one down to me and cherish it like no other.

  49. Amanda B. said on May 24, 2011

    Love the bunting! Would look adorable over my little one’s changing table. :)

  50. Carrie said on May 24, 2011

    I credit you 100% for my addiction to all things bunting!! I am not as creative as you but made some with scrapbook paper, hemp string and mini clothes pins for a mantle decoration for my daughters birthday. I had a baby boy a little over six months ago and want bunting for his room. He is really cute;) please add to the addiction you created! Love your blog!!

  51. bridget said on May 24, 2011

    How very sweet! Beautiful.

  52. Marty J. Christopher said on May 24, 2011

  53. Kevi Zupancic said on May 24, 2011

    I would love that bunting! Just found out that I am expecting my first child and already dreaming of decorating the nursery. Maybe Canada is a little far though?! :)

  54. janine said on May 24, 2011

    Ooooh, thanks Kristina! I’ve only just begun to think about how we’ll decorate our nursery. This would def be a great start.

  55. tina said on May 24, 2011

  57. Becca said on May 24, 2011

    Hooray for a freshly painted house and for a deep spring cleaning…that is going to feel so great once all the chaos is over!

  65. grace said on May 25, 2011

    we are planning to have a baby and I would love this for the nursery!

  66. Camille K said on May 25, 2011

  71. Whitney said on May 25, 2011

    So cute! My first baby is due in November, but I haven’t even started planning the nursery yet since we’re enduring a cross-country move this summer. A handmade banner would be the perfect thing to get my husband’s and my ideas rolling…

  72. Kristin said on May 25, 2011

    I’ve considered make one for our child’s nursery, but 1) I’m a student and have no time, and 2) I have no sewing skills. I would LOVE to have this!

  73. Amanda Wells said on May 25, 2011

    My wee one (Cooper) would love this in his room! Will send you a pic if I’m the winner :-) xoxo

    This would be a perfect fit in my soon to be nephew’s nursery!!

  75. Nicole said on May 26, 2011

    I would love this! I have about six more weeks until my due date, and I don’t yet have anything pretty to hang on the wall over my new son’s crib. This would be perfect.

  76. Lauren said on May 26, 2011

    These are so cute! A friend of mine is having a little girl in October and she pretty much has no decor sense so has asked for assistance. I would love to give her something like this as a kick start!

  77. Shantel said on May 26, 2011

    We would love these in our little ladies room! Super cute!

  78. Elaine said on May 26, 2011

  82. Claudia Guerreiro said on May 27, 2011

  83. Kristen said on May 27, 2011

    I don’t have a little just yet, but my hope is high. I already know bunting is a must for my babe’s nursery. Until then, my sweet friend is having her first in august, and I can let her borrow it. :)

  84. Veronica said on May 28, 2011

    I love these. I wanted to make some for my baby’s room but I never got around to it. (I think this might be my new catchphrase!) Thanks for all the lovely inspiration on your blog!

  85. Kate Johnson said on May 28, 2011

    So cool! I would love to win these for my friend and her beautiful new baby boy!!

  87. Bethany Aldecoa said on May 30, 2011

  88. Kristen said on June 17, 2011

  91. g some said on June 21, 2020

    This information is invaluable. When can I find out more?

  92. g said on June 21, 2020

    Excellent post. I was checking constantly this weblog and I’m inspired!
    Very helpful info specially the ultimate phase
    :) I take care of such info a lot. I was looking for this certain info for a
    very lengthy time. Thanks and good luck.

  93. said on June 25, 2020

    Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I’ve really enjoyed browsing your blog posts.
    In any case I will be subscribing to your rss feed and
    I hope you write again soon!

  94. said on June 26, 2020

    Link exchange is nothing else except it is only
    placing the other person’s blog link on your page at suitable place and other person will also do same in support of you.

  95. said on June 26, 2020

    always i used to read smaller posts that also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this article which I
    am reading here.

  96. said on June 26, 2020

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    But think about if you added some great images or videos to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with images and clips, this website could definitely be
    one of the most beneficial in its niche. Terrific blog!
