Well, nursery renovations are thisclose to being done (we had some flooring installation issues last weekend, so we are waiting on new flooring to arrive, then we're down to window trim and closet interior—yay!), which means: A) that I owe some delayed posts of my husband's excellent artistry using lime plaster from Unearthed Paints on the walls and handiwork installing electric radiant floor mats from Nuheat and B) it's time to move on to the very fun part of nursery remodeling: decor! 

Finding adorable and eco-friendly decor is definitely not difficult. The main problem is in narrowing down the many fantastic options and trying to stay on some sort of budget. 

There aren't many non-huge chain baby shopping options in my town, so I've been finding tons of items all over the internet, many of them handmade here in the U.S., that I am considering for the nursery. Now I just need to narrow down my options and make some final decisions. In the meantime, I thought I'd share. I'd love to see some of your favorite nursery decor, too! 

Uncommon Goods is one of my favorite eco-friendly retailers. They never fail to offer up interesting, fun, affordable and eco-friendly items, and my nursery-shopping expedition was no exception to their typical wish list-inducing offerings. I have coveted one of their recycled cardboard mounted deer heads for about a year; now they've added this upcycled moose head, so I have to decide which will work better!
