Monday I was excited as a kid at Christmas! The fabric I picked out for RC's nursery came in.
(RC is short for Racecar Carlos. For those of you who haven't heard, my lovely children have picked those names. Until Erik stops avoiding the inevitable conversation and decision, we shall continue to call him RC.)
I found a bib at The Freckled Frog about 2 weeks before we found out we were having a boy. It was this great construction equipment design.
I immediately fell in love with it and bought it. I knew that if our "hunches" turned out to be wrong, I could always return it for a pink model! Once our suspicions were confirmed I started the search for the perfect nursery. Having had two girls, I knew I wanted something very boyish. I really wanted to avoid themes but wanted more than blue and brown. (which, btw, is very popular these days.)
We went fabric shopping in the big city and I ordered different swatches from some online fabric retailers. I didn't like anything I found and all the while I could not get the cute bib fabric out of my mind. So, I set out on a mission to find the construction fabric. Erik says its a bit predictable (the whole construction theme) but I love it. This is what I found:
The fabric plus three beautifully coordinating pieces to go with it. I am so excited! It's going to be a beautiful nursery and my head is swimming with ideas for it. Apparently RC is doing a number on my creative juices. I've got project ideas coming out of my ears! I actually had to buy a little book to jot everything down. Now just coming up with the time and money......
