Sophie's stuff

We have been doing a lot of work on Sophie's room lately. It took Joe a whole week to clear out all of the junk that was in our extra bedroom. There are still a few things that need to be moved, like my husband's guitars hanging on the walls. "But honey, can't we keep the guitars in there?" my husband asks. Uhhh...No. Silly man. They simply don't go with the garden decor. And so they must go. Don't worry. I'm letting him hang them in our bedroom. I'm not that mean. after cleaning it out, I got in there and moved furniture around and organized some of the stuff we have already. We actually have quite a bit of stuff for Sophie. Here are some pictures of the room so far. It needs a fresh coat of paint(lavender and mint green!), and a carpet cleaning, but it has come a long way. I wish I could find the "before" picture, but I can't. You'll just have to imagine the room filled with junk! :)
The first picture is the reading corner I set up with the chair we had in our living room. It isn't terribly comfortable and I would like to get a glider someday, when we can afford it.
The second pic is of a toy shelf I got from work. It used to be an old dollhouse that the kids never played with. I gave it a coat of purple paint and decoupaged scrapbook paper on the shelves. The third picture is a dresser I painted that we had in our entryway. I stenciled the roses on it and added the pickets on the back. I'm not happy with the handles, so I'll have to figure out something else. The last two pictures are the "canopy" that will go over the crib. My husband fell in love with these when we saw them at Ikea and since the room will have a garden theme, I went along with it. The very last picture was taken while I was laying on the floor, so that's what Sophie will see when she is laying in her crib and looking up. I think it's pretty neat.

Beautiful!!! Sophie will love being in that room.
P.S. Your quilt square that I mailed to you came back to me...I am an idiot with postage. It is now safely back in the hands of Canada Post and should be arriving sometime next week. So sorry for the delay.
