Vintage Airplane Baby Crib Bedding

One of the most popular bedding sets in our shop for boys continues to be the Vintage Aviator Crib Bedding Set. Airplanes are a perfect theme for a baby boy. They are a symbol of adventure and imagination and are also great for a travel themed nursery.

Sweet Jojo Designs Airplane Baby Bedding

If you are thinking about an airplane nursery, here are some more fun ideas for you to consider. In this fun boy's bedroom, we love the use of a compass rug. The mural on the wall leaves so much room for imagination. The dreamy air trails are so cute!

Traditional Kids by Los Angeles Interior Designers & Decorators Smith Firestone Associates

In your nursery, you can collect fun airplanes and hang them from the ceiling. We love how they are hanging above the rocker in this nursery. Your baby would love looking up at these fun planes during snuggle time.

Transitional Kids by Kenilworth Interior Designers & Decorators Steffanie Danby Interiors

In your airplane nursery, consider using a propeller. Isn't this look fun! If you decide to use a propeller like this, make sure to consider your baby's safety and keep it out of reach; especially from your baby when they are in the crib.

Contemporary Kids by Atlanta Artists & Artisans Anita Roll Murals

Here is one more fun idea for your airplane nursery. Buy a picture book with airplanes and frame them for a fun and unique statement on your wall. We also love the high shelf in this room. Wouldn't it be fun with some model airplanes on the shelf?

Traditional Kids by San Francisco Interior Designers & Decorators Cristin Priest {Simplified Bee}

We hope you have fun designing your airplane nursery. What are your ideas we'd love to see photos of your room!

Chevron Bedding for Teens

We are so excited to show you our new line of Chevron Bedding for Teens! This amazing new line of bedding from designer Sweet Jojo Designs uses a large chevron print in four different colors in a soft brushed microfiber fabric.

Chevron Bedding for Teens

Chevron bedding has been popular for awhile now. Some might argue it is on it's way out. We disagree! Bedding with the chevron pattern continues to be the most popular in our store. Its easy to see why.

People love the bold and beautiful design. Is is very striking and pleasing to the eye. You can use the pattern boldly or sparingly. A little or a lot, this new line will help you incorporate this popular pattern in your room.

If you are looking for just a touch of chevron, add a throw pillow or a cute memo board.


What do you think? Is chevron still one of your faves? How do you use it in your home or fashion?

Soft Pretzel Bites Recipe

Lately my kids have been on a pretzel bite kick. These soft and yummy little pretzels are a great snack and fun to make together. They are also a perfect appetizer or snack for a football party. Being in Colorado and Bronco fans, in this house we will definitely be making these for the big game this Sunday and serving them in blue and orange bowls!

Soft Pretzel Bites Recipe

Ingredients:



1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
3 ounces unsalted butter, melted
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 quarts water
3/4 cup baking soda
1 whole egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon cold water
Coarse salt

The first step to making these yummy pretzels is to make your dough. For Christmas this year, I got an amazing Kitchen Aid food processor, so I gave my new toy a try in mixing the dough. You can use a mixer, food processor or knead the dough by hand.

Combine the water, brown sugar, yeast and butter in your bowl. Allow this to sit for 5 minutes.

Next add the salt and flour and mix your dough. Here's my dough in my new toy!


Once your dough is well kneaded, set it aside in a covered bowl to rise to double in size (for about 1 hour).

When your dough has doubled, preheat your over to 425°. Remove the dough from the bowl and divide into eight equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rope that is approximately 12". Use your kitchen scissors or a knife to cut each rope into twelve 1" pieces. They are starting to look a little bit like pretzels bites now!


Now comes the fun part! Add the baking soda to the water and bring to a boil in a large pot. Once the water is boiling, add your pretzels in batches and boil for 30 seconds. This part sounds strange but it is very important to getting that pretzel taste and texture. This is what gives the pretzel it's brown shiny crust and distinctive flavor.

Use a slotted spoon and remove the pretzel bites from the water and place immediately on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking oil. Combine the egg and water and brush each pretzel with the egg.  Bake in your preheated over for 12-15 minutes.

The pretzels taste best when warm out of the oven. They can be served with cheese sauce. Make your own or save time and buy a jar. Pretzels are also yummy with cinnamon and sugar or cream cheese. There are so many possibilities. Enjoy!

Thanks to Two Peas and Their Pod where I first found this recipe on Pinterest.

How to Make a Memo Board - DIY

Kids always have lots of pictures, awards and mementos they love to hang up in their room. Why not make a simple memo board to help them organize their special items? This tutorial will show you how!

How to make a memo board
 You only need a few supplies to create this memo board. You will need:

  • A standard 23"x35" bulletin board. You can find one of these at any discount or office supply store.
  • A standard Crib Sheet. They are the perfect size to fit over this size bulletin board and come in so many fun fabrics!
  • A staple gun.
  • Thumb tacks or furniture tacks.
  • Coordinating ribbon.
Cover the front of your bulletin board with the crib sheet. Wrap the sheet around the back side. Carefully staple the crib sheet to the back side of the frame of the board making sure the fabric is tight across the front of the board. Once you have stapled all the way around cut off the excess fabric on the back side.


Stretch ribbon across the front of your memo board. Use furniture or decorative thumb tacks to secure the ribbon where it criss-crosses and secure the ends of the ribbon to the back side of the frame of the board with a staple.



Hang your board on the wall and slip mementos behind the ribbon or pin them to the board. A simple way to get your kids room organized and add a personal touch!
