the nursery, pt 3 (the gallery wall!)


When I first started daydreaming about this nursery, before I even knew if it would be filled with pink or blue, I knew I wanted something like this wall. Something filled with sweet words to surround our baby and pretties for me to look at while rocking him to sleep.

I spent hours looking for different prints and images on Etsy. It might have been the most fun part of putting this room together. So now, I bring it to you...


  1. Jeremiah 17:7-8 print from Naptime Diaries. I pray, pray, pray that our boy becomes this man.
  2. Owl print on a vintage dictionary page from Blue Zoo.
  3. Green alligator (by me) using my Silhouette machine.
  4. CS Lewis quote, also by me. It says, "You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream." Andrew and I live by that (hence the nod to the Navy with the anchor) and I hope our son lives by that, too.
  5. Hoot print from Sarah Knight Design.
  6. Oh, Lord You're Beautiful print, also from Naptime Diaries. I spotted this one right when she opened her shop (before I was even pregnant) and knew that it would adorn my little's wall one day. It says, "when Your eyes are on this child, Your grace abounds to me." So precious.
  7. Monkey print on a vintage dictionary page, also from Blue Zoo. She sent it as a freebie when I ordered the owl!
  8. Orange binoculars (by me) using my Silhouette machine. Because I hope he likes to explore.
  9. Hot Air Balloon print from MDCreated.


And in case I didn't brag on this enough, here's the painting on the door. My sweet grandmother painted it on the back of an old puzzle that she had in the grandkids' toy box - it had lost all the pieces so she turned it into this gem. Love her.

I adore the art in this room. It's full of the wishes and prayers we have for him and I can't wait for him to see it all :)
