Harper's Nursery is Waiting!

I wanted to share the baby nursery.  This is on the door to Harper's Room.

My daughter has made a beautiful nursery for our first grandchild.

Isn't the alphabet cute?  So bright and cheerful.

Lovely name banner

Comfy chair and pouf to go with the room.

Little owls looking down on Harper!

Darling framed pictures for the room.

Love the book shelves!  You can never have too many books.

Just need Harper to complete the room.

Thanks again parents and kids for my end of the year gift!  I will have fun shopping.

Storybook Baby Shower: Just for Fun

Diaper cake of Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, welcome guests.
Since Heather and I are both teachers of young children, the perfect theme.

Sign the book with a message to Harper!

Entry way to my home.

Book themes on the tables.  Three bears with three bear strip quilt.

Love this story, so I added a little toy for later and coconut m&m's.

Love the Eric Carle fabrics!  Made a quilt to go with the story 10 Rubber Ducks.
(I have a love for ducks too!")

Eric Carle stories with Brown Bear quilt.

Nighttime stories with bears in their sleeping bags.

Very Hungry Caterpillar in the kitchen, where the food will be served.


Cupcakes for dessert, so had to include this story and a few fun kitty stories.

Doggies!  Love the tub toys that loose their spots in the water!

Love reading these stories with my kinder kids.  I still had some of Heather's white shoes from when she was a baby, and then added some new white shoes for Harper.

Good ole etsy!  Quotes from favorite stories and little flags.

Party favors!

Mommy juice seemed like the perfect match for the shower.  They even have a cute story.

Center pieces, thanks to pinterest.

Tables ready for lunch.

Another Etsy find for a few games to go with the theme.

Purple purses filled with candy to go with Lilly's purple plastic purse and add to the table decorations.

Our family!
Lft to Rt:  Heather (mommy to be), Grandma to be, Great Grandma to be, Sister in law and a favorite cousin.
