This is the Happy Little Corner I talked about in an earlier post. I got everything at Hobby Lobby (of course) and it just looks perfect I think. You can't see it well in the picture, but there's a gold crown sitting on the table too, which pays homage to my love of all things royal. I LOVE this corner.I put Evy's framed announcement and another framed professional picture on top of my record/music player. The little white album has a cross on it, and will hold all of the professional pictures we take with Mauri.
I was in Dillards and found this new bedding for the guest room---it ended up being about 80%off! And I used a gift card with leftover wedding credit---so it was FREE! I love the color chartreuse green...I'm on a big kick with it right now. We already had the brown upholstered headboard (my daddy and I made it), and the brown drapes were already there as well. Kurt's mom had made the Euro shams to match my other bedding, and they just go perfectly I think.
I bought this great new lamp at HL to complement everything. Also, I don't think I've ever shown you my photo collage of my great-grandmother, Vera McCarty. She was such a beauty, and I love these pictures of her. She's the reason I got the auburn hair genes :o) She passed away in 2006; but looking at these pictures makes me feel like we were a lot alike. The pictures aren't extremely clear, but you'll get the idea. I love having a tribute to her in my house. Bonus: her clothes were fabulous.
And my favorite new thing: I filled the blank wall leading into our den/living room! I bought these letters and we hung them to spell LOVE. In the winter/Christmastime, they will spell NOEL (so I only had to buy 5 letters total for two different looks). On either side, we hung framed professional pictures, one from our photo session when I was pregnant, and then from Evy's newborn session. I could never figure out how to fill this big blank space, and I'm really happy with how it turned out!
I'm going to finish getting the house ready for tomorrow. Evy will meet Mimi and Dah (my dad's parents) for the first time, and I get to see my Daddy! Great day ahead :o)
