Milo's Nursery

Ta da! Milo's nursery is finally 99.99% finished! (Yeah, I couldn't wait for the finishing touches to show you guys, I'm just waaaay too excited!) At long last the sweet baby room is done, with less than a week til my due date! We worked pretty hard on it and it's taken a little while to bring all my visions to life, but it was well worth it. I'm so in love with this room. It's definitely my new favorite place in the house. I actually go in there at least once a day and stare at everything.

diy boxwood topiary

So lately I've been really wanting one of those super cute topiaries I see everywhere. Y'know, the one with the single round greenery orb at the top, looks adorable sitting next to a tv or really anywhere. They also cost about a zillion dollars everywhere I look (okay, so maybe like $30 but still too much for my cheap butt). The other day while I was browsing around Hobby Lobby for the third time this week....I found this boxwood ball on sale for about $2.50. Boom. A thought occurred to me. Maybe there's a way to make a topiary myself?
