baby room

Our crib mattress finally arrived! Here are some before and after pics of a chair I finally finished reupholstering. We bought it from Goodwill in Colorado three years ago with the intention of redoing it for our future nursery--and we finally needed it to be finished! The little quilted throw pillow is a project I've had on the back burner since our last trip to Hawaii in 2005. Finally done!

This is our guest bedroom/nursery.

These are some vintage ABC cards I found at an antique show.

Boston Common and the duck pond

The weather was so beautiful last weekend, we went to Boston Common and the duck pond for the day. Here are a few pics.

Just when I thought I couldn't be more attracted to my husband, he put up our baby's crib. I'm in love. :)

Here are a few projects I've been working on. I finally had our diplomas framed and hung them up. We wanted them to be similar but still be consistent with school colors.

I've made several diaper bags for friends over the years, so I thought I'd make one for myself. I used some linens I found at an antique show.

Although we haven't lived here too long, we have been very fortunate to make great friends. The staff from McGrath gave me a beautiful shower a few weeks ago and gave us so many wonderful needed items. Unfortunately, David and the camera were in India, so I don't have pictures. Their sweetness was very overwhelming, and I teared up throughout. Thank you, McGrath!

Last weekend, the ladies from David's office gave us a shower. The weather was absolutely perfect, and we all had a wonderful time. Thanks to these lovely ladies, we now have practically everything we need. Again, their generosity made me emotional, but I held it together. The pictures are in the slideshow above. (If you click on the slideshow, you can view larger pictures.) Thank you, ladies!
