YOU TAKEOVER TUESDAY: A Cut Above {GIVEAWAY & DISCOUNT}

First off, I'd like to thank everyone who has sent in questions and written in to share their favorite baby products!  I love reading all of the e-mails and have lots of great features for upcoming YOU TAKEOVER TUESDAY posts.  Keep 'em coming!

Today's question was sent in by eight different readers after I posted this picture of Gabrielle & Alaina's nursery in the Tree Envy piece:



Megan, Alyssa, Janie, Pamela, Kirsten, Jenny, Michelle and Alicia all wanted to know where I got the butterflies that decorate the wall behind the cribs.  Well ladies, here's the scoop.

I first saw 3D butterflies in a high end baby catalog which shall remain nameless, and I fell in love with the idea of them at first sight.  But not only were the ones in the catalog WAY overpriced, the colors were totally wrong for the nursery.  So I immediately checked Etsy where I was overjoyed to find Almost Sunday had almost the exact same thing in stock.

 

The store's owner, Karen, was amazing to work with.  She customized the butterflies in colors that matched our room and also made larger sizes for me since we had such a large wall to work with.  The result is exactly what I wanted, and my girls love to watch their butterflies' wings flap when the air in the room blows.  Best of all, I got them for a fraction of the cost of the overpriced catalog.  Yippee!



Besides butterflies, Almost Sunday also sells these funky 3D birds:



And the store's paper mobiles are beautiful!  They can be made with butterflies, birds, fish or owls:



What more can I say?  I love the stylish simplicity of Almost Sunday's nursery decor and I know your little one will too.  Mine certainly do!
