Just for fun...

This is by far, one of the best photos I have ever captured. It is my niece, Addisyn. My-oh-my the faces that this little girl makes... Makes me crack up every single time. Hope it brought a smile to you today, too.

Catching up...

By the way, Happy belated Halloween!

Welcome to our bedroom!

And because I am neurotic when I am with child... I just had to redecorate our bedroom (and living room and bathroom) as well. My (totallyawesomeandlovingcaringnurturing) mom bought us the duvet cover, curtains, curtain rods, and bed skirt. (After sewing the crib skirt, I so owe her big time... I can't imagine making a bed skirt. ug) The prints are from Elsita Mora. Her work makes me sigh. I just love her blog banner for that matter! And the dresser is off of Craigslist for $20.00. Some paint and new knobs (hard labor courtesy of my husband) and it is as good as new! The walls are solid wood panels. Serious business here folks... wooden walls + wooden floors = sleeping in a solid pine box. Not good for the "zen" of the room... whatever that is. We decided we wanted gray. Yummy-sweet-soothe-my-soul gray. Justin did all of the painting also. Have I mentioned lately just how much I adore that man?! Anyway, the room is perfect!

Welcome to Eliza's Nursery... we have been busy these past few months.

I made her a corkboard to dispay her photos. And I used passed down broaches as the push pins.
I repainted my old dresser from my childhood and made her a nifty-quick quilt.

I made her a hat and cozy snuggler for her infant photo sessions!

I hung up this print and showcased some of my favorite fabric.

I made her a banner with some lovely Amy Butler paper.

Daddy made her a shelf out of old barn wood from Gram and Pawpaw's house. Momma made her a dress, a wall-pocket, some bunnies, and a name plaque. The flowers in the vase are from my wedding.

I made her mirror like new with some paint.

I made her a soft block, a new boppy, and a nursing cover for me.

I made her a quilt that is a sea-full-a-circles.

I made her a crib skirt that I think is the perfect touch.

I made her a pillow to rest her little noggin'.

I made her some giant tissue paper puffs to adore as she drifts off to sleep.

Daddy painted her nursery and Momma made the curtains with care.
And now we wait for her arrival...
(P.S. I don't think we actually bought anything other than fabric and knobs for the shelf.)
