I realized Mon evening ( after working a 12 hr shift in the unit that day) that we have less than 80 days until Tess ( note: we are calling her Tess and are pretty sure that is her name but there is still some debate) arrives. YIKES!! and currently, the nursery is completely white ( thanks to Reeves and my parents for kilsing those dark wood paneled walls!!! ) . I have been known to be a little indecisive and like to take my time picking out fabric, colors and paint. I just want things to look perfect! I had been to several fabric stores in Florence and found one very pretty paisley pink and green fabric but nothing that I just LOVED to coordinate with it. So, I started with my internet search, not only did I find 1 room decorated in the paisley, I found 2!! so I was able to see what fabrics they put together and I sort of combined what I liked in both rooms. Next step- try to find the fabric for cheaper than $20- 22 dollars a yard ( BIG YIKES!. and guess what- I found an online fabric store and the carried the exact fabric I needed for $10-12 a yard and shipping total was only $10. HOORAY!!! so, my mom came over yesterday afternoon and helped me figure out how many yards we would need to make the bumper, crib skirt and curtains and I ordered the fabric last night!! I am soo excited! I can hardly wait for it to arrive so I can pick out a paint color for the walls and we can get to work on the bedding!!! I saw "we" but it probably is going to be more like me sitting upstairs in my mom's sewing room and talking her ear off while she sews everything. I usually add a stitch or 2 here, but she really is the BEST seamstress and I am soo thankful she can and is willing to sew for me and our family!!! Anyways- if you are interested- here are the fabrics I ordered and I will try to post some pics as the room comes together=) Tess is going to be here before we know it!

Love the fabrics you picked!!! Layla's room/bedding is going to be pink/green/white also. However, I bought the bedding because there are no seamstresses in my family...you are very lucky! Can't wait to see the finished room!

I just have to say I love, love the paisley print. I used the exact same fabric for Emma's curtains in her room. I think the other fabric you picked out will look great with it. I used a polka dot pattern to coordinate with it.

I think that is the fabric that Lindsey picked out for Avery's room, but in a different color! I love it! I am procrastinating doing Mary Addison's new room, since the new baby will be taking over the nursery! Ugh! I can't make decisions either! I need to start seraching the internet for ideas! Did you find any recommendable sites?

How fun! I love those fabrics! Anna Kate's room is done in that paisley and the stripe fabric!! I fould a cute polka dot that went with the stripe too, but that was in february, so it may be all gone from the fabric stores! Aren't little girls so fun to decorate for, I feel like I am a little girl again!!! Good luck!
