Our 'Waiting Room'

Hello again. So many things have been going on in our cozy den. Today I want to share the big project that has been taking up a lot of our time. This is our biggest and most beautiful project yet. Our nursery. This has been a beautiful and frustrating journey. Hopefully our wait will not be much longer. My heart goes out to all the Mom's in waiting, wherever you may be. While we wait Bear and I have taken to sitting in our waiting room, dreaming of the day when we will hold our precious child.
In our quiet nursery there are built in shelves that make a perfect place to change diapers. I even found a little basket that fits into the space between the wall and the changing pad at GW for $0.49. Beneath the window there is a little white table purchased off of Craigslist for only a few dollars. It holds wooden sheep wrapped in wool yarn and the Wooden rocking horse that Bear made.
Here is a close up of the two pictures on the shelves. A favorite quote and verse. The frames were another GW purchase. They are the same mint green color, but my camera was being a little finicky. I used left over scrap paper to make simple borders. Martha Stewart would be proud.
These wonderful decals are available on Etsy from Simple Shapes. There are a lot of pieces in this decals set (over one hundred). Each leaf, twig, acorn, acorn cap is a separate decal, but don't let that discourage you. They are real easy to put up; and the end result is well worth it. You can't see it, bur there is a fox hiding behind the chair and another blue bird flying towards the one on the branch.
In the crib rests two sweet little dolls made by Acorn Pies. Their arms reach out in waiting for the wee one that will one day love them. As I wait in my rocking chair dreaming of our child and all the trials we have gone through I am reminded....
You can't make rainbows without the rain.
Thank you for visiting our quiet waiting room. Have a blessed day and be well.
