Vintage Farm Animal Nursery

Cason's Nursery  (2)Decorating a stylish Nursery that can grow with your bambino is a challenge, especially if you are not looking for the commercial blue stripes with elephants, pretty pink princess or even the gender neutral jungle zoo animal theme.

Challenge #1- Which room to convert into a Nursery?…finally decided to use the guest room with a LARGE CLOSET for my stylin’ tot.  Took some major arm twisting on the hubby from me.

Challenge #2- Theme?- Once we found out the gender {boy}, I wanted a nursery that would blend in with the rest of our farmhouse style. My design style is the “Vintage Farm Animal Nursery”.

Challenge #3- What furniture do you really need in a nursery? The musts include: a crib, a dresser (with a changing table topper), and a rocking chair.

This nursery décor was possible with the several shopping experiences from Restoration Hardware Baby (bedding linens & stuffed cows), Home Goods (frames and wall art), Etsy (farm animal artwork & burlap ottomans), Antique Farmhouse (dresser), Craigslist (rocking chair), Target (art supplies inside cubby box) and my all-time favorite local flea markets and antique shops/fairs.

Looking closely into the mirror you will notice some pretty black cows in the pasture right outside the nursery window. They serenade the babe to sleep at night with hungry attention seeking bawls.cason nursery 1

My best girlfriends threw me a fabulous baby shower, in which the theme was to bring your favorite book, instead of a card, with a special heartfelt message to Cason inside. All of these books now rest on the gorgeous barn wood bookcase, made especially for this nursery by my girlfriend’s daddy. Super Sweet Gift!

These photos were taken right after the arrival of Mr. Cason…now a year later this room is covered in massive amounts of loud noise making toys (which this crazy mama insists on putting them away every night before bed…only to be taken back out of the closet the very next day).

What is up Y’all

My very first Blog Post…where to begin?

This blog will be my outlet to share what REALLY happens on a Cattle farm, including the good, the bad and the ugly times. Winter Brook Farms is 3rd generation family owned cattle farm. We run over 100 head of registered Angus cattle or as I like to refer to my ladies as “retired show girls”.  Both the hubby and I have shown and raised cattle on a national level, since we were barely walking and hope to pass this luxury down to our sweet baby boy.

Besides raising and showing cattle we LOVE to entertain on our Ranch… It’s not a party til’ the cows come home! (well I guess I should say, I love to entertain…the hubby on the other hand knows a party = a huge “honey do” list for him). I will share all my creative thoughts that go into DIY party planning and decorating secrets, including the fabulous photos.

In my so called spare time, I have a mad passion for eclectic chic Farm House style within our homestead. We took our 1950’s family farmhouse down to the studs and completely remodeled room to room, but as any zealous person knows the house is never complete and there is always room for improvements or even a mere “freshin’ up”!

Please stay tuned for pure entertainment and photo overloads of Ranch Livin’…Savvy Chic Style!
