pink and blue

The crib quilt is finished. The sheet with the little birds on is one made by my mother ages ago. I slept underneath it when I was a baby and so did DD and in just a few weeks time a newborn baby will too!
DD worked real hard on decorating the baby's room and it's ready now! She did a great job...the room turned out beautiful and oo so sweet!

The diaper basket on top of the cupboard is an old family piece and so is the cupboard. (There is an empty spot in my bedroom now!!)

Auntie Heleen made this little heart.

And above the crib hangs a music mobile from Kathe Kruse

I love the sweet pink and blue DD used for color the room...it's so fresh. Is it for a "baby boy" or "baby girl"?? Only a few more weeks to go and we will know!

What a precious room! DD did do a perfect job and I imagine she is really ready now for the little one's arrival. Seeing a room all done up must really make it that much more real for you all. All the best as the big day approaches!
