I've been tinkering in the nursery and trying to cross some things off the endless list. I saw these mobiles on etsy so I bought the kit from THIS site and made one. This was definitely not the most fun thing to make but it was exactly the look I was wanting. The jury is still out on if it is too long. Cody likes it like it is but I'm still thinking.....
Across from the crib is the antique chest of drawers we found at a flea market in Searcy. I'm not sure if the lamp is staying. I covered a "R" in pink yarn and put fabric in a couple of embroidery hoops. I glued the buttons on and stitched stems to reassemble flowers. I had both of the fabrics and buttons on hand so these three pieces were well under $10.00. That is my kind of project. :) If the lamp goes, then they will be getting a new arrangement.
My sister-in-law, Shara, picked up the cute toy box for me and I painted it a light pink last night. I also found a small table at a flea market today to go by the glider (which we do not have yet.) I need to paint the table too but I'm not sure if I want it white or pink.
I'm most excited about the double stroller we got this past weekend! It was a floor clearance and came with a free infant carrier and car base. It is the Britax B-Ready double stroller. I like how Westin will sit up high and how the baby will face me. Westin could also face me if I wanted him to. If you have this stroller, what are your thoughts? But only good thoughts since it was floor clearance and not returnable! Haha! We took Westin to the neighborhood park in it and it was really easy for me to get it in and out of the car which was good.
I still haven't forgotten about posting pics of the new guest room and Westin's new room. Every time I think about taking pictures he is napping. :) I will do that this week.
