The Nursery Reveal

Over the past few months I've gone through quite a few tutorials for nursery items such as curtains, a crib skirt, crib sheets, changing pad cover, and how to recover a glider. All with the expectation of a little girl arriving in January.

Well, she arrived with fanfare (*cough*a nice extended hospital stay*cough*) 4 days early, and we just hadn't quite put the finishing touches on the nursery. So a couple of weekends ago, we finally "finished" it. There's still a few things here and there I want to add, but they're just little things. I have a feeling it's going to be an ever evolving process.

But! We're going to go ahead and call it final and do the big reveal before she gets old enough to move to a toddler bed.

"Little Girls are... Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice"

First off, can I just say how cute this wreath is? A dear friend made it for Baby Spatula and gave it to us at her shower. A little tricky to cart home, but definitely worth it.
