Have been busy, busy, busy and absolutely exhausted! We have almost finished painting the baby's room and I've been busy gathering "baby" things in preparation for our new arrival which should be in 10 weeks time.

I've been on ebay again...this chair is one of my latest purchases and am now on the look out for another similar to go in our front lounge.


This was also another ebay purchase but for the baby's room, a lovely reproduction wrought iron bed. My mother is making the quilt below for the room and I've also been collecting little vintage pieces. Can't wait to put it altogether.
Another project that is almost finished is Ryan's room and am quiet happy with how it is turning out. Although I'm not a fan of themed rooms for kids, we were having some issues in getting him to sleep & stay in his own room so I thought I'd try involving him in the decorating, he of course wanted dinosaurs, dinosaurs & yep you guessed...more dinosaurs. I must say that involving him has worked a treat and he absolutely loves his new room.

It looks wonderful Danielle and if it gets him to sleep, even better! Your chair find is stunning and the iron bed will look so pretty with the quilt on it.
...good luck with the birth!

Hi Danielle, it's lovely to meet you and be able to follow your gorgeous blog.
I had to laugh about the Dinosaurs for your son's room. One of my daughters wanted a rainbow room and for someone who craves an all-white scheme (moi), it was difficult to digest!
The quilt your Mum is making is going to be gorgeous.

Hi Danielle

How exciting your little baby is due in ten weeks time, in fact probably sooner as I'm a bit late commenting on this post

How lovely your new furniture is and I bet your quilt made by your Mum is beautiful, please don't forget to post some pics for us.

Thanks so much for your comments on Fig Tree Cottage, I think I could quite easily head up there for a few days!

Good luck ~ Gail xo

Great new look for the little mans room. Hope you can get him to stay on there. My daughter has the same problem with her 2 1/2 yo, he nearly always ends up in their room.
10 weeks to go - that will fly by
