Project Nursery-Its done!!

Baby Avery will be here in 10 weeks so I have been busy trying to finish up the nursery!!  It is now done!
I love any excuse to get to decorate but this is the best excuse ever!  So ready for her to arrive and try out her new room!

This is an adorable basket with an A on it that a friend gave me

The frames have her initials but will eventually have black and white pictures of her

Found this amazing door at trade days!  It was the perfect color.
I had to have these wings!

Got these curtains at JCP and my mom added the fabric trim at the
bottom so they looked more custom.

The nursery is on HGTV's rate my space located HERE....
check it out!

Only one last thing I am waiting on to make the nursery complete....Avery!

Baby Shower

This weekend I was given the most amazing baby shower!  Thank you so much to my Aunt Helen and Cousin Susan for all of their hard work!!  Friends and family from near and far came out and made the day so special.

They know how much I love shabby chic, vintage decor and furniture and the venue couldn't have been more perfect.  It was thrown at Gather on the Square in downtown McKinney.  It is the most adorable restaurant with incredible food.  It is owned by Karen Klassen who also owns Spoons.  The decor and attention to detail is right up my alley!  Old wood floors, exposed painted brick, amazing crystal chandeliers, chippy vintage furniture with chic!

I love initials so A for Avery was displayed all over the shower. 
This was out front to help people find the place
Amazing vintage table with cute decor.  A beautiful diaper cake and cute
pregnant teddy bear
Love the teapot wall

They have amazing chandeliers!

My Mom and Godmother made all the diaper cakes!  They were incredible!

The food was so incredible!!  They had red velvet fav!
Look at the adorable invitations that my friend Kristel made...she owns Haute Lil Mama boutique in downtown McKinney!  She is so talented

Look at the adorable vintage cradle I got!  So "House of Hargrove"

My mom/"Grammy" and I

My mother-in-law "Ama"

People who made the day so special...

Mom and Dad

Thank you again for all of the love and support!  I am so lucky and Avery will be so blessed to know all of you.
Only 10 more weeks!!
