wee wednesday With Lindsay of Darling Clementine | A Shared Space

While we wait patiently for baby's arrival, and as I waddle barefoot through the house I am working to make over Juliette's room into a room for her and baby boy. This is a bit of a struggle (ie jigsaw puzzle) since we live in Brooklyn, NY and space isn't abundant. We've had to be very clever in our redesign in order to keep the space still feeling like us, while allowing baby to have his space too, all the while keeping Juliette's interests in the forefront. 

Here are some pieces we've picked up to help transform the room into a space both little one can enjoy:

1. Gender neutral storage baskets will help keep Juliette's toys at bay while also helping to organize baby boy's laundry. By Serena and Lily 

 

2. Leather bookends, both childlike and also quite grown up

 

3. Ferm Living Cloud Wall Stickers

4. Bean Bags by Bla Bla in gorgeous grey

5. Animal Print Shop, particularly this darling deer

6. Baby Acapulco Chair 

7. Felt fruit for both little ones to enjoy  

See you next week!

wee wednesday With Lindsay of Darling Clementine

It's 2014, it really is here, which for me means my little baby boy's arrival is imminent, he's due to arrive in early February! 

Our world of 3 is about to become 4, and as I've been warned by friends with multiple children, everything is about to change. Part of me feels sad, and guilty that we've decided to change our sweet little family but I know in my heart a sibling is the best gift we could be giving our family and though there will be bumpy times there will also be the best times. 

This post is for Juliette, who someday can read it and try to comprehend the love I have for her, try to comprehend the emotions that were running through me as our family was about to welcome a new addition, who would be so loved, but would never replace her.  

Her light, her joy, her bright eyes bring sunshine to my day, and moonlight to my nights. She constantly helps me see the world in different ways. She is so tender and yet so strong. She's the best of Kevin and I, both stubborn and utterly caring, headstrong and needy. I adore her fragility as much as I admire her strength. This little boy who will be here in a matter of weeks has no idea what a lucky little boy he is, to have Juliette to look after him. And me, I'll never stop looking after her. Oh here I go getting all teary...

Here are some of my favorite photos from this past year as she grew from baby to little girl before my eyes...

See you next week

Wee Wednesday With Lindsay of Darling Clementine | Stripes Obsession

Half of my wardrobe is black, the other half is stripes. Or so it seems as that's what I end up wearing on a daily basis. This trend of stripes of course rolls over onto my little girl, and will inevitably roll over onto the little boy who's arriving very soon. Here are some of my favorite stripes for Mama & littles. 

Happy Holidays! Xx Lindsay

wee wednesday with lindsay | DIY Snowglobes

I'm not huge on christmasy decor, but I adore winter decor. Snow, snowflakes, deer, evergreens & twinkly lights. A few years ago I created some homemade snow globes with deer & penguin figurines, mason jars, miniature trees & a hot glue gun, they were darling. I put them out every year and look forward to making more with Juliette this year. I found a easy to follow step by step guide on MarthaStewart.com, what doesn't this woman do perfectly? Enjoy...

How to Make a Snow Globe by Martha Stewart 

The shimmering magic of snowfall is always transfixing, whether it's outside your window or inside this classic toy. Homemade globes let you create a wintry scene straight out of your own imagination.

Almost any jar works for this project: Baby-food, pimiento, and olive jars are good choices. Look for plastic or ceramic figurines (metal ones are prone to rust) at flea markets and hobby or model-railroad shops. Synthetic evergreen tips are available at many floral-supply stores. You will also need oil-based enamel paint, sandpaper, epoxy, distilled water, glitter, and glycerin. (click link to find out the step by step guide to creating a gorgeous winter wonderland...)
