I’ve been collecting the free codes from Pampers Gifts to Grow points for a couple of years now. I finally cashed them in for baby boy’s first pair of Baby Legs. They’re so cute! Big brother had to test them out and he seemed to really enjoy them. We might have to get him his own pair.

The curtains are finished! I let these things stress me out a little. When we found out we were having a boy, I knew right away that I wanted thick striped white and navy curtains. I’ve seen lots of DIY versions from painting, to sewing on stripes, or just finding thick striped fabric (which was pretty much impossible and expensive!).
I was a little down because it didn’t seem to be working out and then I saw these duvet covers at Target.
They were perfect! I bought two twin sized at $19.99/each. Not only are they the perfect color and stripe thickness, but they’re already lined while being light enough to look like a curtain. I didn’t have to hem them either! I just clipped them up, so if we want, we can totally take these down and use as a duvet on his big boy bed down the road.
We made the curtain rod using electrical conduit that we got for a couple of dollars and simple brackets from Home Depot. The finials and curtain rings are from Ikea. I used this tutorial from House of Hepworth’s for the rod and hanging the duvets. Pretty darn simple!
I love them. They were exactly what I wanted, required no sewing, and were cheap! We spent around $60 for the whole set up (curtains, rod, finials, etc). And…they can be used later as actual duvet covers.
This Old Try says they’re a Southern Print Shop north of the Mason Dixon line. They have prints specialized to southern states as well as some to represent the whole South. I love the bold graphics, destressed printing style and clever image/word play.
Here are some of my favorites. A few of these definitely have potential for gracing the walls of baby boy’s nursery.
Aren’t they beautiful? Go check out their site to see all their pieces. These are sure to add a little southern charm to your place.
I created the baby wish cards for my nephew’s baby shower over two years ago. Boy, have they been popular! The free printables have been downloaded almost 30,000 times! I love when people link to their showers and I get to see the cards in action. It tickles me when I’m out looking for ideas for our own baby boy and find the wish cards pinned on people’s ‘baby boards’. I love keeping memories and I’m glad so many are using these to keep for their kiddos.
A few weeks ago, Jessica contacted me about customizing these for her daughter’s first birthday. She was going to have guests fill them out at the party, then pack them up and save for her daughter’s 18th birthday. Isn’t that such a fun idea?
I’ve been getting quite a few requests for custom colors and wording, as well as printed versions, so I’ve decided to offer these in our shop. There’s a customized printable option or a customized printed option.
I can’t wait to have family friends fill these out for our little guy soon!
