Nursery Diaries: Girly McBaby’s Bedding

I am so so happy with how Girly McBaby’s bedding for our home in Austin came out.

If you need to catch yourself up on the overall scheme of the room, check out this post.

Otherwise, you know that I pulled all of the colors for the room from this fabric:

The crib is a lovely turquoise:

And the walls are wait for it…

Peppermint Pink.

I know, I know.


So yesterday I picked up her bedding. And I am dying, I cannot wait to see her cute little bunnyface snuggled up in it.

Her bedskirt…

Baby Pillow.

And crib sheet.

Sorry for the blurriness, I didn’t want y’all to know her initials JUST yet.

Soon enough.

I am still waiting on the bumpers, there was a bit of a mixup, but they will be white with red piping and red bows. It is going to be ridiculous.

What do YOU think Girly McBaby’s initals are? Any guesses as to what we are naming her?

    A blur out! You’re so sneaky. I hope it’s super southern and family oriented.

    So cute! Cannot wait to see the finished product. Where did you find her precious bedding? I’m redecorating my bedroom and am looking for new linens!

    Darling! I’m guessing… Olivia Quin. Do I get a prize if I’m right? :) Love your blog- best part of my morning coffee break!

    Love this bedding!

    Hah and love that someone guessed Britney.

  11. Amy July 27, 2011 at 1:54 pm

    Will you be naming her after your favorite Britney??

  12. Maggie July 27, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    What a precious bedset! I’m going with Lindsay’s guess, Olivia Quin. Those blurred out initials look a lot like ‘O’ and ‘Q’. c: Can’t wait to find out!

    That bedding with scalloped edges, red piping, swirly monograms, turquoise crib, pink walls! My gosh, it couldn’t get any cuter! Love every little thing about here room!!! You are so amazing! My guess for the little ones name is……………..

    Milly or Molly ( I think of your baby as “McBaby” so I thought I would pick a M name)

    leontine? ophelia quin!

    Roberta; but you’ll nick-name her Birdie. Sometimes you’ll call her Baby Bird or Lady Bird, but usually it’s just Birdie…
