Baby on the Brain

It recently occurred to me that I'm rapidly approaching my due date and have SO MUCH to do before our little gal arrives!!! We all know I have my priorities straight, so for the last 24 hours I've done little more than decorate the nursery. Virtually that is. I think I've got it mostly worked out... at least until I change my mind again. I'm about to order all this stuff online so speak now or forever hold your peace. Here is the crib... just the crib and none of the other stuff in this picture:
Here is the quilt I'm going to make along with the bumper and dust ruffle out of Heather Bailey's beautiful Pop Garden fabrics:
Here is the rocking chair:
And the sheepskin rug:
I'm soon to be receiving the dresser I used while growing up that my mom had used while she was growing up. Now it will be Little One's. I think I'm going to paint it a color similar to this: (picture from Rachel Denbow's home tour on Flickr. Check it out, her house is darling)
And then I'll put on some crystal drawer pulls and slap one of these cute decals on the front in orange or some equally cute color: (You also must check out byrdiegraphics on Etsy, they have fabulous designs!)
I also intend to make my own mobile composed entirely of brightly colored tissue paper poms: Sooooo pretty!

I love it all! You've made really, REALLY great choices. My favorite is the rocking chair.

Don't you just love Rachel Denbow's house? She's so talented.

Have so much fun getting ready for baby!

The crib is fabulous as is the rocking chair. Actually, I like the decals as well. Guess it's a good thing I don't have babies on the brain (for more than one reason)!

This stuff is so cute. I am thrilled that you get the dresser from your mom's childhood. I love that kind of stuff. I am so excited for you.
