Make room for baby
This weekend has been designated as nursery weekend. We plan on doing whatever it takes to get some blue in this house by the end of the weekend! =) As of this morning, the former girls bedroom is now blue, the girls have a new room in their former playroom and other smaller projects are in process.
My favorite accessory so far for the new nursery are the amazing blankets my grandmother crocheted for his room. We already have quite a fabulous collection of these blankets as I have two gorgeous ones from my childhood and then the girls each have two. However, of all the blankets so far the ones for Ben are my most loved yet! I love the color and one of them has white stripes that are a really nice touch!
All of these blankets represent someone taking time to lovingly spend hours making something by hand for our children. Not only that but my grandmothers work is superb... each line is without flaw! I love knowing these blankets will be in our family for years and that my children can pass them down to their children with the story of their great-great grandmother who had this amazing skill.
(I am posting a few pictures I tried to take of the edges of the blankets so you could see detail but in reality none of these pictures come close to doing the blankets justice.)
Pics of the nursery and new girls room to follow!! =)
