The Room's Not Done Yet, OK?



Everybody wants to see Katie's nursery! Well, it's still a mess and has piles everywhere. We just moved 2 weeks ago and had a baby 4 weeks ago, so cut me some slack!

If it weren't for the move, the room would have been done in March.

We also had another hold up. I have had Katie's bedding picked out for 5 years! When I found out I was having a girl, I ordered it right away. When it came, the bed skirt was totally different from the picture.

This is what it was supposed to look like:

The bed skirt that came had lots of ugly cartoon characters on them. They changed the fabric, but not their picture online. I was so sad!


Anyway, my sister in law came to the rescue...again, and made Katie's bed skirt.






I love how it turned out. I got my hankies from Golightly's and the red and white polk a dot fabric is from the curtains in my old kitchen windows. Those actually came from Golightly's too!

Good Night sweet Katie, and Happy 4 week birthday of being in the world.
We are glad you're here!


P.S. The room, and the rest of the house, will hopefully be done soon. I will share with you as soon as I can!

I felt SOOOOOOOO bad after I left you a message about showing us Katie's room. I know how busy you are girl, believe me. I really really like how the bedskirt turned out, now it's even more special since your SIL made it for her. :) Hope you're doing well and goodness, don't feel like you need to break your back to show us the house pics.

I love it! So cute and girly :)

Sadly, my two-year-old girl wants a car bed. A car bed?! What is girly about that?! Maybe I can find one in PINK. ha!

Dina, it's perfect. I love how you pulled it together after a disappointment like that but if anybody could I know you could with your amazing talent. Gotta love a sil like that too. How special. I can't wait til it's all done so I can take a tour. :)

I'm just absolutely floored that you do as much as you do-despite being pregnant! despite having a newborn! despite moving! I am so excited to see what you do and feel so lucky that you post so often! Your home is so cheerful and beautiful and I admire your high spirits! Congratulations on a new beautiful baby to match your beautiful home:) Fun!

This bedding is adorable, reminds me a bit of the bedding we got from land of nod http://www.landofnod.com/family.aspx?c=167&f=4298
I can't wait to see the whole nursery.

You are SuperWoman. Truly you are. Don't feel any pressure to add anything to this blog! It is a treat when you do, but spend this sweet time with Katie and Marcus!! The teeny-tiny babyhood time will slip away too quickly...
Lots of Love,
Keri

Caroline's room is a huge mess of piles too. With the suprise of a girl we are redoing and pulling out girl clothes and putting up boy ones. It's hard to get things done, I just want to hold her and look at her all day.

Katie is so cute, what a little blessing! Love her little outfits!!! Her bedding is beautiful, glad you got the bedskirt made just like you imagined.

Katie is a DOLL!!! Can I squish her?
And BTW, I still have the same plan, send you and Katie a ticket, so you can come and decorate my house : )

Jennifer said...

Hey Dina! My Mom introduced me to your blog a few days ago. I absolutely love all of your unique decorating ideas. I wrote a reference to your kitchen in my latest post, and included one of your pictures for my friends to see. I hope you don't mind. Best of luck with the move! UGH, you guys picked one horribly hot time of the year for it. I can't imagine, especially with a new baby. Don't rush yourself, wait until it cools off some, and you will be able to get 10 times more done!
