Photo Shoot for the Orange County Register - Home Section

Two dogs, two beds, two floor pillows, one crib and one jumping child. That wraps up yesterday's photo shoot with Cindy McNatt from the Register in a nut shell.

She is going to be running a story about tips on essentials for your nursery and how to make sure it transitions to toddler-hood.

We thought you would like to see some of the room photos for a sneak peak. The Register's photos were SOOOO much better with all of the kids, dogs, and jumping. But we thought you would like to see the inspiring children's decor from Pixie Dust Decor.

Stay tuned for the Register story.

PS - If you haven't seen it already, Cindy also writes a daily blog about gardneing. You will love it!
