This weekend, Pascal and I spent a fun morning with our sister-in-law, Cara, choosing fabric swatches and paint colors. We're helping with the decoration of our little nephew's first bedroom. I get to play "decorator"; Pascal gets to paint.
The nursery, based on a "vintage cars" theme is going to be adorable — red-and-blue-striped ticking, ginghams, dark navy denim and a yellow Madras plaid. So far, we've stayed on budget, but there are so many cute baby things to be had, it's easy to get carried away.
For example, our little nephew-to-be already owns his first car, a VW pedal car my brother found on Ebay. It may have felt like a splurge, but it was a huge bargain compared to these luxury items featured on PoshTots.com. The site features toys, furniture and décor for children with silver spoons in their mouths. You can buy a pirate playhouse, a shoe armoire, or a covered wagon bed - just $52,000, $49,000 and $13,995 respectively! As for cars, there is a veritable lot to choose from; test drive the kid-sized BMW at $8,000 or think big with a Mini Off Roader priced at just $32,350.00. The site is a fabulous source of inspiration for our little prince, but rest assured that we'll be creating his royal kingdom on a pauper's budget.
