I'm so excited that I have to do a whole blog just to tell you all that my mom is the best mom EVER! She has purchased Ella Claire's bedding! I have been in love with it from the beginning but it was a little on the pricey side for us! Thank God for Grammie Lan!! I still have to wait until after Christmas to get it but I think I can handle it since i've already ordered the fabric swatches to be sent to my house. Obsessed much? Yes I am! My mom is also throwing a shower for us the week after Christmas in Arkansas so that we can celebrate Ella Claire with all of my family. I'm so thankful that my family will get to celebrate with us! I LOVE Christmas but I told J last night that I think this year i'm more excited about the week after Christmas than Christmas it's self. Is that wrong? Probably but still I can't help it! So here it is drum roll please...........

The "Natasha Bedding" from Serena and Lily

I know you probably aren't near as excited about it as I am but that's ok. Just pretend you are! I will probably be painting the walls a light grey/green color. Similar to the little flourish on the bumper.
We are painting the crib white. I bought the crib at a garage sale for $40. It was at the "grandparents" house so very slightly used and it converts into a toddler bed(pics to come)!
J is building a unit to go around the window that will have shelves and a bench seat (it will be painted white) similar to this just less modern and a few variations of layout. This will give us plenty of storage space.

J's mom said that she could handle making a cushion for the window seat. I just need to figure out fabric.

We are hoping to do a molding/bead board on the wall similar to this if the budget allows.

If you come across anything good that you think would match, message me!! I'd love to hear what you think!
