A fun surprise came my way on my 30th birthday -- I actually won a blog giveaway, this time for a Dali Decals $25 gift certificate. I was on the fence about the whole decals-in-the-nursery trend, which according to some snooty blogs is apparently on its way out. Then I started to realize how many cute designs are available, and I started to think more about the blank wall that will be above the crib and how I don't want to make it too busy/I'm worried about hanging stuff on there lest it should fall into the crib. (Perhaps this is a stupid fear? I don't really know what's kosher in the stuff-above-the-crib category.) Of course, once I won this awesome giveaway, my decision to put a decal over the crib was solidified.
I've narrowed down the decals to my top two choices.
First there's the Mod Tree Branch with Two Mod Birds for $65
curtain fabric contains a few abstract birds. I'm not super into birds or anything, so it's weird that birds keep popping up in my idea banks. (Perhaps I should just let go and Put a Bird on It.)
The second option is more inspired by the fact that we now know Baby Awesomerod is a girl. Here is the Swirling Poppies Set of 15 wall decals for $39.
OK, please help me decide! What would you choose?
