When we found out we were pregnant with baby #3, I decided this would be the time we would wait to find out the gender until the baby was born. Why not, right? It’s the last time I plan to be pregnant (although I do reserve the right to change my mind, just in case) so I thought it would be fun. But my husband and older son Charlie wore me down.

Hi Oh Lovely Day readers! I’m Aileen from the interiors & lifestyle blog At Home in Love, and I’m super thrilled to be guest posting today while Chandra spends some time her new babe.

This is a trend could actually be implemented in any room of the house…but it’s so cute, it lends itself perfectly to kid spaces. Here are a few of my favorite ways to use felt balls in decor:
1. Rugs. These are probably the most common use I’ve seen with felt balls, and they’re perfect for kids’ rooms–soft, squishy, and absolutely adorable! I love the idea of a cloud shaped felt ball rug, and the purple rug (#2) is my own.
