Some Things for the Nursery…

A few weeks ago, I posted on Twitter about how difficult it was to find Star Wars crib/toddler sheets.

You see, I’ve slowly but surely started trying to collect things for the nursery. I know that I still have five months to go, but I feel like I’m running out of time for some reason.

The biggest challenge with the nursery is that we’re converting my office into the baby’s room. That means I’ve got to get it cleaned out and emptied of yearbooks and papers and office supplies.

It’s not a fun job, and I’ve been procrastinating as much as possible.

So, while I’m procrastinating, I’ve started searching for fun things for the nursery.

I found a couple of really cute things that I wanted to share with you…

It’s Yoda! We found this cute stuffed Yoda doll at Target, of all places. Isn’t he fun?

And the changing table and cradle in the photos? That’s from my friend, Rose, who was kind enough to give us the ones she used for her own boys.

Rose is awesome and fun and she reads Young Adult books, just like me! She and her sister run their own blog — you should totally check it out!

But this is my favorite find — a baby blanket made from a vintage Empire Strikes Back sheet. I’m thinking of basing the whole nursery decor off of it.

I love the dark blue, light blue and white color combo.

The fuzzy backing is so soft and will be perfect for cuddling with the little Nerdling.

I purchased the blanket through Etsy from Linda Lu Designs.

I LOVE it.

Now all I need to do is find some sheets. I’m debating on just doing plain colored sheets (the blues and white from the baby blanket) or buying regular-sized Star Wars sheets from Pottery Barn Kids and sewing them down to fit the crib.

If I do the latter, I’ll have to BUY a crib first. Which is my main dilemma.

And if I BUY a crib, I have to have a place to put it, which means I have to CLEAN OUT the nursery. And so, the vicious cycle begins.

Anyway, I’m really happy with the things I’ve found so far and am on the look-out for even more! If you see anything, leave a link in the comments, k?

Oh, and we’re looking for VINTAGE Star Wars stuff. NOT the Clone Wars cartoon. ‘Cause, you know, that’s totally LAME. :)

Happy Tuesday!




  1. Love it! Keep an eye on Think Geek for great onsies for nerdy babies.

  2. I love the Starwars theme:)

    Check out these–

    I have been saving up to buy all 12 patterns:) If I get them I could make you some!

  3. I love the stuffed Yoda! I think that your baby will love it. Can’t wait to see how the nursery turns out!

  4. Those Star Wars decorations, especially the Yoda doll, are so cute!!!

  5. I love your theme! My 8 y.o. and 4 y.o. are total Star Wars nerds. And I’ve been brainwashed into liking it was well. 😉 (It seems inevitable that a mom of boys will have a plethora of SW info.) I hope you can find the crib sheets you’re looking for.

  6. OH MY GOD I LOVE IT!!! My husband loves star wars. He now wants our kids rooms to be star wars….when we have kids lol…

  7. Your post is so cute and totally reminds me of the picture book “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” by Laura Numeroff. Speaking of which–picture books should be your next addiction. I am a recovering picture book addict (recovering because my husband says I can’t buy any more since we are out of shelf space :)!!

  8. I just came across this site, and it reminded me of you and your search for appropriately geeky baby gear –

  9. Hi,
