What I'm thinking...

For the babies crib...
This is my inspiration, but I will not buy this crib. First, I don't want to pay $700 for anything, much less a crib my child will use for 2 years. Second, it costs more than our bed did...Third, it's gorgeous and I love the look, but it doesn't get great safety ratings and isnt' recommended in Baby Bargains- my go-to baby product book. (Pottery Barn Kids Madison Crib, $699)

So, with that in mind, this crib seems like a good has the same 'look', is good for a baby boy or girl, and is MUCH more affordable...what do you think? (Carters Casual Convertible Crib from Babies R Us for $219)It doesn't have the curved top, but I really like the look and clean lines. Not too architectural, still classic, and most importantly, safe!!

I'm also obsessed with the stripes in the Pottery Barn nursery, but I also love the yellow color that the guest room/future nursery has now, so I don't think we'll be striping it up anytime soon.

Any recommendations for cribs or other baby furniture are welcome! I am not buying anything until after Christmas at the earliest, but it certainly is fun to look :)

Hope you all had great Halloweens! We had a great time at M's party and I'm really looking forward to the Scout Home Show this weekend, email me at if you want an invite and directions to my house :) :)

I don't have kids so I cannot recommend cribs but the one you posted from Babies R Us sure is cute and I love the price!
