Designing Wolf's Nursery

Picture snapped from my phone of Wolf's nursery.

While I was pregnant, I had lots of ideas and visions on how I wanted to decorate Wolf’s nursery.  It seems like just about everyone was asking, “what’s the theme for the nursery?!”  From the beginning, I knew I wanted to go with a general animal theme, but as the pregnancy went on I narrowed it down to woodland creatures.  I became a little obsessed over the idea that Wolf should be surrounded by animals he’d see in nature, not with animals he’d only find in the zoo.  Well, of course we received LOTS of animals, but mostly giraffes, zebras and elephants not the bears, squirrels or owls I was hoping for.  Wolf’s nursery is isn’t what I’d originally planned for but it’s still a work in progress.

Want to see my inspiration?  We’re almost there, but here’s what I hope that it’ll look like once it’s finished.  {And when it is, I’ll share more photos!}
