still here

Thanks to you all for your lovely warm wishes and welcome to our granddaughter Luca. Here she is, our sweet little girl. She is so fantastic and she does what all babies do (most of the time)...eat, sleep and grow!

Luca

Things have been a bit quiet lately here on the Dutch blue blog, but that does not mean I have sat still! I kept myself busy with searching for a new cabinet/ bookcase for the bedroom. We had an empty wall since our old cubboard moved out to Luca's room, see this post.

After seeing many, I mean "MANY" differant cubboards, cabinets and bookcases we finaly went for the Billy bookcase system from Ikea. It covers up the whole wall perfectly and the glass doors are making it almost impossible for dust to nest on the shelfs. This is certainly no superfluous luxury for a bookcase in a bedroom!

The bookcase looks still a bit empty now, but not for long, I'm sure!

It 'a beautiful girl!
Greetings and so much joy!
My child born in January and also I like the name Luca, Italy is a male name!
Even I am a fan of Ikea and shabby style typical of your countries.

De boekenkasten herkende ik meteen Corry, wij hebben ze ook en heerlijk dat ales achter glas staat. Wat een prachtige wand hebben jullie zo gecreëerd en het is helemaal niet erg dat er weinig in staat, de kasten zijn op zichzelf al mooi. Heel mooi totaalplaatje met de quilt en het antieke tafeltje en de kleur van de wand. Ik ga de foto aan DH laten zien, het lijkt me heerlijk o op onze slaapkamer iets meer sfeer te maken. Groetjes van Corrie

Luca is a beauty! What a tuft of dark hair she has. Enjoy her as they grow so quickly. Your new bookshelves look amazing in the bedroom. It will be nice to see things and yet have them dustfree behind glass. I love the quilt on the bed also and wonder if you made it?

Hugs en groetjes ~

Your granddaughter is just precious!

And the cabinets are wonderful - you will love them! Those are the exact cabinets I chose for my sewing room. I can't imagine the room without them now.
