Kate's Room, Finally!

This angel mobile was given to my mom by my grandmother at my mom's baby shower in 1974. It's made by Irmi and you can find some similar ones on ebay. This one spins and plays "This Old Man".

The lighting is really bad in this shot, I'll try to get a better one.

The paint is "light touch" by Benjamin Moore.

I made the drapes when my mom was in town and she did all the hems (the hardest part...thanks, mom!). This girl made the bedding. All the fabric is by the very talented Heather Bailey. The drapes, outside bumper, and skirt fabric is "Pineapple Brocade" in ice and pinkypurple , the bumper ties are "Swirly Buds", and the inside bumper is "Peonies".

The butterflies are from Pottery Barn Kids.

The side table is from PB Teen and the vintage chenille dog was a gift from John's mom. She found it here. There's a better picture of it in my previous post if you're interested.

The drum pendant is the "Eden" from CB2. I covered it in "Zag Stripe", also by Heather Bailey. I still think it needs something when I figure out what it needs, I'll add it!

John and I made the glittery "K" on the door with a paper mache letter I found at the craft store.

This letterpress print is one of the best parts of the room. San Francisco is one of our favorite places to visit and was one of the stops on our amazing honeymoon. It was made by the very nice people at Lab Partners.

Jane always wants to "GO WOOK" at Kate in her crib.

And who wouldn't want to? What a sweet angel.

Thanks so much to all the friends and family who gave us gifts of money or gift cards when Kate was born. All of that went to the things you see in her room. We love you all!

Kate's Room

I know I promised to post pictures of Kate's room this week, but there have been many puke/poop incidents which have prevented me from having all the necessary linens in place for a photo shoot!!! So here's a peek. And now I head to the laundry room. This is the first time I have sorted laundry by "barf" and "turds" instead of "light" and "dark". Fun.

Pink Elephants

This would be so perfect for Baby Kate's room. I've been looking for a pink elephant for her shelf that I haven't put up yet. Speaking of her room, I'm going to take pictures on the next sunny day and post them. When you see, I think you'll understand why this pink elephant should be hers. I found it here.

A Pile of Happy

Here's a peek at something I'm working on for the girls...any guesses what it is?

I'm still here!

I am slowly digging myself out of the Christmas hole. I realize January is now half over. How did that happen? My sweet baby Kate has been really sick with a respiratory virus (RSV), which is apparently sweeping Atlanta. I think she will be back to herself in just a few days now though. Here is my new favorite picture of her. And below, meeting her new cousin, Seth, for the very first time! They were so cute together.

Here is Jane feasting on hot dogs with her cousin Noah (this is the best picture I managed to get of them). Steve and Tina were in town for the new year and stayed through the weekend so we had a great visit with them and the kids.

I have lots of fun stuff in the works which I will share with you as soon as I'm done, but I just wanted to let you know I'm still here!
