Peek-A-Boo In The Baby Room

The baby room isn't totally ready for pictures yet, but here's a peek. Above is the Humpty Dumpty lamp I got on Sunday along with the ABC blocks I got while we were in Portland.

It took a while to figure out what to do above the crib. Since we're in prime earthquake country, I didn't what to hang anything heavy or even something fairly light like a shelf with little things on it for fear that it would fall off and hurt the baby. So I decided to hang some clothing above her crib that we'll secure to the wall. The birdy onesie came from Old Navy, my mom gave me the kitty apron which came from the flea market near her house (I love the apron!), and the cherry outfit came from a vendor who was selling vintage clothes at the Inman Park festival in Atlanta.

And here's my card rack turned book rack. I need to fill it up quite a bit more, but it's a start.

I had been eyeing the puddy tats at Laku for weeks now, and I finally got one! I really just couldn't decide which one to get. It's so cute--red and hot pink striped. And the tail is adorable. It has a little bell in it. Little kitty lives on the daybed with all the other stuffies and pillows.

Jingle, jingle.

Oh my, what a cute room this is going to be. Killer idea with the card rack, I love it. I can't wait to see this when it is all done. Did you guys move into a two bedroom? or had you one all along...

Leigh,
This room just bursts with your charming style the way I knew it would. I love the colors and combo's. The clothing is above the crib is a clever idea and all 3 have a vintage flair.
I'm not going to make it Sunday but I have a little something that I think will fit in with your decorating scheme perfectly. Have a good time.

Gosh, why does the post button always get away from me before I check for spelling and grammar? Disregard the "is" in line 3.
