Goodnight Moon, Goodnight Room

Hey guys- Is anybody out there?!   I need to invent a button like Pandora Radio to reassure me...

Sorry for my lack of posts. I have been overwhelmed with work and travel so I really appreciate your patience with me as I get back on track. (I'm speaking to my entire family, friends, clients and blog readers. Yes, I've even been screening my own mother!! Shame on me.)

 Sometimes I find myself being consumed with work or getting tied up in trivial things. Then, at just the right time, I get an email from someone welcoming a new baby into the world. Reality check

God is good...and what better proof than the miracle of birth.?? 

Recently I got an email with this sweet birthday face-

Jack is here!
 Meet Jack. His mom is one of my cousins (which makes him my...? not going to attempt) - Remember this post? She lives in our great-grandmother's old home. Needless to say, decorating the nursery was a treat and I can't wait for little Jack to enjoy his new peaceful room...

 A few details....

  • Bedding is from Serena & Lily- Dylan Collection

  • The curtains were done by my seamstress in Nashville. I can't claim the design- I saw it at a friends house and loved it. So I had that same box-pleat trim made for the leading edges. I think that little detail ended up adding a lot to the room.
  • The wooden blocks and animals were from her mom's attic (I'm telling you- hit up your mom's attic and who knows what you could find!!.. And if you're in the south I recommend a bathing suit with a hand-held fan.) 
  • There was one wooden animal- the giraffe- that her grandmother brought back from Africa years ago. They had it made into a lamp and found the perfect shade at Anthropologie.

Since I'm sharing some baby love I want to say CONGRATULATIONS to some clients/friends/readers I know that have recently welcomed new babies: 

Lindsay, Brooke, Alice, Amy-any day now!!, Shelton, Kim, oh gosh- I know I'm forgetting a ton.  

Anyone else welcomed a new baby? What is his/her name? I want to hear! (You have the right to baby-brag)
