We've got color!

So I finally started painting on Saturday and when I showed Marc the first completed wall, he said, "Oh wow, you went with fluorescent blue." Um no, it's robin's egg blue, but a shade lighter.

And luckily it dried lighter then it went on. I was really nervous about this color, I wanted something unexpected and funky, but not too crazy. I think it'll come together when we put the furniture in there. I hope so. Our entire upstairs is getting carpeted next week, so we've been slowly filling our downstairs with furniture and stuff that belongs upstairs. Like our dining room is filled with nursery stuff. Super fun.

Today's quilt square's are from our friends that are adopting from Korea, Christa and Andy. And along with their fabric, they attached a heart pendant with Poppy's name on it. Love it!

And this one is from Christa's mom, and it didn't show up that great when I scanned it, but the fabric is winnie the pooh.

What a beautiful color. I can't wait to see the finished room. It looks like it will be ready for Poppy very soon. How are the referrals moving?

I love that color! It looks like a Tiffany gift box--every girl's favorite :)

I'll take some pictures of ours to share. Our rocker is the green chenille...but it is lighter than I thought it would be.
