Chris will be spending part of next weekend finding a new home for all of these items. I wasn't able to take a photo of the Goodwill pile, since I loaded it up yesterday before I broke out the camera. Just know there were about 8 garbage bags of toys, clothes, shoes, household items, suitcases, and things that I would put in the category "other".
With all of the junk out of the closet, I had room to hang these:
Pink, pink and more pink. I have had a great time buying clothes for Little Miss. About 2 years ago, just after Hayley turned 2, I caught the purge bug and got rid of EVERYTHING related to baby in the house. I mean everything except for one box of baby clothes (half boy/half girl clothes). So, basically we are starting from square one. The thrill of bargain hunting has been fun for me and I love visiting a great baby consignment shop that is close by the house. So far I have found an infant carseat stroller frame for $25 and lots of cute outfits for $3 to $4. Can't beat it!
After looking in Pottery Barn Kids and Land of Nod for some type of artwork, I knew I was going to have to get creative as far as wall decor goes unless I wanted to spend a small fortune on one cute print. I went to Michael's and bought canvas, paint, and ribbon and came up with this:
The middle print has Hannah Beth in little letters. Yes, we think this will be her name (actually Hannah Elizabeth), but have not really decided, therefore I have not attached the letters to the print just yet. The colors match the bedding that Mimi and Papa gave to us. I will show it in a later post when the crib is all set up.
So, we are making some progress. Only 98 more days until due date!
