33 Weeks Pregnant | Twins

Another week down!  And these two are officially going to be fall babies!  
#summerbabiestooearly
Brian and I spent this weekend trying to tie up any and all loose ends.  To say you never really feel completely prepared is an understatement ~ this mama continues to nest.  But bags are packed and we're super excited!  We'd love to make it to our official due date, but after a few preterm scares and our last hospital stay giving me the steroid shots for lung & brain development, we're kinda feeling like "it could happen any day".  (By writing this, I'm hoping to make it to our actual D-Day proving my mommy instincts to be wrong) 
So, while I wait patiently to meet these two, I'm enjoying these lazy, quiet fall days.  Appreciating the little moments and getting geared up for the great, big, wonderful adventure ahead!

Blogger Stylin' Home Tours | Fall 2014 Edition

It's fall ya'll!  
And I'm so excited to be part of another Blogger Stylin' Home Tour, Fall 2014 edition hosted by the very sweet, and very talented, Lindsay, from The White Buffalo Styling Co.!
If you're stopping by from In My Own Style ~ welcome and come on in!  There's big changes in the air here at Iron & Twine...Brian and I are expecting our own little pumpkins in the next month ~ boy/girl twins!  So, this fall we kept things simple & fuss free.  Because lets be honest, the last thing we want to do with newborns (or will have time to do) is a major decorating overhaul for the upcoming holidays! 
For this years fall decor, we kept to a neutral palette with accents of navy, copper, green and wood tones.  Magnolia leaves were a super easy and free addition snipped straight from our front yard.  Bundles of wheat were a grocery store purchase.  And vintage finds, like this copper tea kettle and my primitive wood bowl collection, add character and texture.
Thanks for stopping by!
Next on the stop, Run To Radiance!  And be sure to check out all the home tours from Monday & Tuesday by clicking the photos below!

Vintage Copper Tea Kettle

2nd to cooler weather and fire pit evenings, my favorite thing about fall is vintage shopping.  Getting out to local antique festivals, thrift stores and quaint rows of shops to find that special treasure makes me oh so happy.  So, when I came across this Vintage Copper Tea Kettle for $12, I knew it had to come home with me.  Made in England of copper, brass & wood, all it needed was a good cleaning to make this guy tea time ready!
What vintage fall finds are you currently on the lookout for?

31 Weeks Pregnant | Twins

Whew!  We made it through 31 weeks and boy has it been a bit of a doozy!  After my last pregnancy post, we had been so fortunate with a primarily uneventful twin pregnancy...now 2 hospital stays later, an order to be on a non-bedrest, bedrest and a new appreciation for keeping these babes "in the oven" for as long as possible, has us, once again, counting our blessings and feeling oh so lucky!
While this past month brought on its fair share of apprehensions and fears, I can honestly say, that I'm now so excited to meet these two little ones!  Our current goal is to make it to the 34 week mark along with a minimum weight of 5lbs each.  Each day currently feels like a mini-victory and each week makes this mama-to-be breath a big sigh of relief!  I swear this bump is growing daily (which means the babies are growing!!!), but if this keeps up, this bump is going to need its own zip code...I mean, look at this thing!
So, you better be sure I'll be documenting this bump over the next few weeks ~ who knows when it will be my last pregnancy pic?!  And speaking of documenting, how incredibly cute are these Printable Weekly Pregnancy Signs from Bella Carta Boutique!!  They're perfect for those weekly bump photos, or like I plan to use them for, would make a great addition to your pregnancy journal/scrapbook.
Well, I'm off to another doctor's appointment, these days they have me there a few times a week.  Fingers crossed these babies are putting on some serious weight!  In the meantime, thanks again for all your support, patience & encouragement as we make it through this pregnancy!  xo

Chevron Herringbone Accent Wall

Last week we shared our twin nursery progress and many of you asked about our wood accent wall.  We were super pleased with how it turned out and even more excited that the total cost came in right under $40!  The hardest part was deciding on measurements, once that was taken care of, the cutting and install were done rather quickly and pretty straight forward to execute.  Making this Chevron Herringbone Accent Wall an easy DIY!
