Finally a picture of the baby's room as promised. We are pretty much ready and waiting-just a few weeks to go! And man, I am getting slower and slower...who knew how hard it could be to tie your shoes! The quilt on the wall was found at an antique store to cover up a few patch jobs that aren't quite repainted yet and the mobile is from Posie: Rosy Little Things. We just found an old desk that we will be turning into a changing table-that's on my to do list this week! I can't believe in such a short time I will be this... ...can't wait.
I found this advent calendar at an antique store a few years ago on the bottom of a pile of old magazines and was instantly in love. Advent calendars are one of my favorite things about Christmas. It is hard to see in this picture but days 7 and 8 are my favorite. I think the pink bassinet and cuckoo clock are so sweet. Here are the thrifted ornaments that I told you about-our tree this year is very fat so much of it had to be squashed against the wall in order for it to fit. I may not have listened to this reasoning while picking out the tree. So here it is for the record...honey you were right...(but it is pretty)!
Well, this pretty much says it all. After catching a cold and spending the day without power I am going to try and squeeze in between these warm doggies. We have our tree up with lights but not decorated yet-I found a few ornaments at the thrift store that I want to show you. And, the nursery-still in progress! But first, I need to dethaw a bit. Hope you had a fun (and warm) weekend!
Did anyone else watch Nigella's Christmas Kitchen this morning? I am loving so much all of the white lights strung throughout the entire house. The show is a three part series on the Food Network-the last of the series airs on December 16 at 10:30am. If you missed the first two episodes, they can be viewed here-be sure to watch for the lighted star garland that is wrapped around the stairway banister-swoon!
It has been awhile since I've posted some pictures from vintage children's books-I have so many to show you but this book is one of my all time favorites. Richard Scarry's The Animals' Merry Christmas- a Golden Book c. 1950. I have such a soft spot for animals in houses. Love this roly poly village! Have a great day!
It is starting to get cold and windy here-definitely time for scarves, mittens and holiday mix cds! I love the process of finding the songs, putting them in order and designing the packaging. The song cards have warped a bit despite being flattened for a few days-maybe I used too much glue? I made envelopes out of parchment paper and will seal them with heavy white stickers decorated with candy colored markers. It's beginning to look a lot like a pastel Christmas. Have a great weekend!
