Thanks to my mom, who has worked her tail off the last three weeks, the nursery is finally (mostly) finished! If it had just been up to me, you'd find me curled in a ball in the middle of the floor, weeping, surrounded by half-empty cardboard boxes and bouncy seat parts, with bits of fabric and paper stuck in my hair and to my clothes. Instead, we have this cuteness! Now we're just waiting for the occupant to come out and play. I still have a couple of little things to work on, but they're not super important. I'll be posting a little more information about some of the projects later, but for now here's just a good look. Sadly, there is no good time of day to take pictures in this room, since there's only the one window and the sunlight is blocked by the gorgeous big oak trees out back, so these photos could be better.

Daisy's upstairs bed (yes, she has two. Yes, she's spoiled.) is on the floor next to the crib so she can hang out with her new buddy -- there's a door into our room just on the other side of her bed. The rug's from Target -- isn't it super cute?
this Prudent Baby tutorial, and the fabric is a wipe-off laminated cotton for easy cleaning.
Steam-a-Seam trick from Sewing for Scarlett. How often do you get to iron your walls? I have a few more I want to put up, but they can wait.
So, now that the room's finished, who wants to bet Thomas'll decide to wait another three weeks before making his appearance?
