Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

the snoring twenties: gatsby's nursery

the snoring twenties: gatsby's nursery

 36 weeks and counting. Though I'm planning on keeping baby #2 in a bassinet in my room (and Holden in the nursery) for the first couple of months, the (teeny tiny) nester inside of me wanted to prep the nursery for his arrival. As you can see, I actually did very little to change the nursery from Holden's room to Gatsby's. A chair swap, a new lamp (from a yard sale), a new mirror (from Target), and an update in some of the wall art counts as redecoration for me. Though, simple may be better in keeping with literary accuracy:

His bedroom was the simplest room of all — except where the dresser was garnished with a toilet set of pure dull gold.

Okay, I don't have a toilet set of pure gold. Here's Gatsby's nursery anyway.
