This company sells the best candles. I am one of those people that love their candles to be strong and to burn for a long time. My mom introduced me to these candles and I can't get enough of them. They make the whole house smell wonderful! -- I am currently the owner of 3 and know I will be adding more to my collection shortly. So, if you have some time head over to downtown Wylie and pick up one or you can order one here, at their store website.
Audrey's nursery is definitely a work in progress. Evan has worked so hard painting, adding new light fixtures, new doors, crown molding, baseboards, and new outlets. Thanks to Sandra's decorating expertise and Evan's remolding abilities Audrey is going to have a darling nursery.
Saturday morning began with a quick run to home depot and lots of painting. The walls and ceiling were painted a creamy white with the one wall painted pink.
Sandra suggested to paint the one wall pink. We matched the light pink dot on the polka dot pattern on her bedding. Soon, this wall will have 3 large full print damask prints going down the wall off centered. I am anxious to see how it looks.
All the crown molding and baseboards
Sandra also suggested having one painted piece in the nursery. Just after our meeting I found this display table at a children's clothing store that was going out of business. I'm not sure how we will paint it, but I loved the distressed look and style of this table.
On to the crown....
Our friends Eric and Chris and his dad Dennis came over on Sunday to help with the crown. Crown is such a hard thing to do. Your cuts have to be so precise, but when you have two builders on hand the job can get done!
This picture was taken right after it was put up. After Evan finished caulking and painting over the nail holes we were a little disappointed how the crown looked against the white walls. It just blended in. Chris suggested painting the crown in a high gloss. Evan finished that Thursday night and that did the trick! (I'll have to post a picture of that soon)
I have always been a huge fan of Watermark. A little too huge at times...but none the less God has always spoken to me through their music. Christy Nockels and her husband always write songs about their children. First Noah's Song, then now Elliana's Song. When we found out we were having a girl, I immediately thought about this song and even told Chrys about it on our way home from the hospital. -- It is explains every mother's heart completely. Here are the lyrics:
Baby woman, tiny in stature now But your heart is a treasure Little princess come follow behind me now I am reaching for you
(chorus) Elliana, God has answered my prayers Elliana, God will conquer my fears To mother a daughter, to look you in the eye To know that I had everything, to walk with you in life To give you to Jesus that He would impart The wisdom that I'm longing for to mother your heart Elliana, God has answered my prayers
There will be others to lead and to guide you girl But only one you'll call Mother, the honor is all mine To show you what a woman's like I'm so glad you're mine
Tenderness of God is twirling around In our living room tonight Lighten up your daddy's eyes And know that he just wants to freeze you in time
