Jake's Happy Hodgepodge

Name: Jake (2 months)
Location: Plano, TX

My husband and I had a little disagreement regarding the nursery theme. I wanted art. He wanted sports. We compromised! I also threw in a little vintage/retro feel, and music too. So it's a hodgepodge. I'm ok with that.

I hope you like it! Jake sure does...it's my new favorite room in this casa.
