Thank you so much for all of the sweet messages! We are enjoying every sweet second of our time with Baby Charlotte and we are filled with a happy kind of peace that we know Callie has blessed us with. I wrote this post before Charlotte was born but I couldn't post it earlier because the Charlotte's web theme gave away her name ;-)
So, while we are busy filling our camera card with snapshots of our sweet girl, take a look at her nursery! We are in love with it and we hope Charlotte will be too! The ceiling is a beautiful coral color that looks different as the daylight filters through the windows at different times of day. Those stripes were a labor of love by John...and totally worth it. He did an amazing job! We sprinkled in some apple green to go with the coral and mixed up all kinds of patterns...stripes, trefoil, chevron, polka dots, feathers!!...you name it! I busted out my mom's old sewing machine and made the bunting flag and pillow case for the glider. With the leftover fabric from the room projects, we recovered the vanity bench, created the fabric rosettes for the letter 'C', and filled some embroidery hoops for wall decor. We found an awesome used bookstore that had an old copy of Charlotte's Web, which I used to rip out the illustrations and mount them on scrapbooking paper in spray-painted Dollar Tree frames ;-) And the wall art quote comes from the book, which I typed up and had printed at Costco and framed with an inexpensive frame from Target. Down the road, we'd like to install some shelves in the 'book nook' and add some overhead lighting. It is such a happy place to be.
Can't wait to bring Charlotte home!
