tick tock tick tock


I can literally hear the clock ticking in my head counting down to our baby, or maybe that's the cuckoo clock I just hung in her nursery. Either way I've got one week to go... hopefully.
Just a couple quick shots of details coming together in the baby's room including a pink typewriter, bedding, paper cranes folded & frames are mapped out on the floor just need Collin to hang them later tonight. Me + nails + his precious dry wall are not the best combination.

Found this beauty at a garage sale for 5 bucks and Collin painted it white for me. I have another one in our living room but I want to collect more. Not sure what I love about them.

The crib bumper is being made but here's the quilt we'll be cuddled up in in the wee hours of the morning. This is such a random post but just wanted to share...

PS If you haven't already, you should check out the =>>> packed-full-of-goodies GIVEaway!
I'll announce the winner tomorrow! It's neat reading all the things you are grateful for.

wall paint: Ralph Lauren Sunwashed Blue

I've been on a search for my own typewriter to join the "typewriter club" hehe. I love that you had the clock painted white! That is Brilliant! Love the quilt and that print was so you wasn't it! I know when that line came out it must have made you weak in the knees ;) Can't wait to meet your new little bundle of joy!! Hugs from Conroe, TX!

P.S. -- I talked my boss into giving me the Instax for a Christmas present -- wasn't that good of me? Ha ha.

That is going to be one adorable nursery! What kind of typewriter is it? I've been casually looking for a manual, but don't really know much about them. :)

I was the third of three girls. The baby. Would have to say, I just loved being the youngest. My 2 older sisters got spanked for something first...then I would know what NOT to do! heehee :) Enjoy your girls...what precious little cuties you have on your hands. Great blog, and great giveaway. Your creativity inspires me to think so much differently about my crafting! It's like it runs in your blood!! :)
Thanks,

awww! It's so cute! And I cannot believe it is only a week... though if you are anything like me, those last few weeks feel a bit long! I'm ages behind on our class, but I hope to pop over there later and catch up! Hugs from Copenhagen!

The sneaks of the room look great. The quit is so pretty. I hope you enjoy all your time in there cuddling up with your little one.

Brooke said...

The room sounds so welcoming for your new little one. Good luck!

Does the cuckoo clock work? I love them but the constant noise would drive me nuts!

Crystal Alves-Tusim said...

Been working on my nursery ALL week and making homemade creations for my little nugget too =) It's my first and am excited, anxious and scared all at once. The clock just can't go fast enough...ahhh, can't wait!
