dresser

While garage-sale-ing with Charity this spring I found a dresser for the babies' bedroom! I had been hoping to find one. This one was a nice diminutive size for my half-story upstairs but had plenty of drawers for a couple of little people. It was in fairly good shape, though I didn't like the old dark laminate and loud, brass handles. :) I brought it home with me and the next day Caleb and Olivia helped me to sand and paint it a lovely creamy color. With new drawer-paper and knobs it is just perfect! Rosie-posie has the bottom three drawers and the little man will have the top two (well, already does...his clothes are all in there).

you got a quilt you love for 25 cents? That's amazing!
I adored washing and putting away my coming-baby's things. . .I loved being reminded of that by your sweet photos.

So precious, the wee baby things!

I am a new, first time Grandma of a baby girl, a wee petite thing....just born two days ago. What a precious time for your family.

I will pray that God will help you in your labor and that you will soon be holding that sweet boy in your arms!

Great find in the dresser - it looks great!
