A Real Labor of Love! :)

Apr 24, 2011
My sister was here last week and put her heart and soul into doing our nursery and it looks AMAZING!  I am so impressed with all that she did and came up with and how wonderful it all looks together.  It was a lot of fun watching and helping her (a little!) and seeing it all come together.  The above picture is what you see as you walk into our bedroom and look into the nursery.  It is actually a dressing room/closet that is right off of our bedroom.  The only bad part about it all is that the nursery looks so great now; walking through our room to get to it makes ours look so dreary!

 This is the quilt that she made before coming and just has to have it "quilted" know once she gets back to Ohio.  It's her first one and she did a wonderful job!
 This hangs on the crib and will hold odds and ends for the little one.
 This is a wall hanging she made that will eventually have the name of our little one once we decide on it.  She tried to get us to pick but we just aren't ready and definitely not something we want to rush into.  We are close but not 100% sure on it just yet.
 Custom made curtains that started out as just some red prebought ones from Walmart that she fancied up quite a bit!  Love them!
 We found these wall hangings at Gordman's and they couldn't be more perfect to go with everything.
 A lamp that was on clearance at Gordman's and I had the shade and she added her special touches to it to make it pretty darn cute.
 Remember these round decorative tables that have been around forever?  Well Heidi had to have one and we literally searched just about everywhere in Kansas City to find one and were finally successful on a last ditch effort to Hancock's.  I think I heard the angels sing when it was finally found or that could of just been my big sigh of relief knowing that our search had come to an end and we could rest a bit!  lol!
 A changing table we found for $20 on craigslist that fits right in.  She added some fabric to the baskets that looks really cute but I need to get a different picture for that.  She also made a cover for the changing pad that matches the bumpers on the crib.
 Found this rocker of craigslist as well for $40 and it fits in perfectly.

And at last, the infamous Heidi finishing up the last bits of the nursery before calling it quits.  And the signature tongue on the lips that seems to be a family thing as we all concentrate on doing crafty things!  lol!  I do the same thing!  So very thankful for my sister and all the wonderful work that she did this week for our new little addition.  So very blessed by her labor of love and can't tell her enough just how much it means to me.  :)  Love ya sis! ;)

    So very CUTE! How wonderful of your sister to do all that sewing for you. I love the colors and everything in the room. I'm a sucker for all that baby stuff though. It's so fun to get it all ready. You're done so nice and early too. No rushing around at the last minute finishing up the room before you head to the hospital.
