A Bit of the Baby C's Yellow/Black/White Nursery

Chevron and elephant curtains I made for the closet door.
Elephant curtain I made in coordinating fabric on window, and black and white polka dot lamp from Ikea.  It won't stay there, but I liked seeing all the black and white stuff against the yellow walls.
I bought these three black and white paper packs on sale for $2/piece at Michael's, I cut them into paper flags that will hang from a network of black twine from the ceiling.
These are some of the cut flags; they will be affixed to one another front and back and secured to the twine across the ceiling (ah, the blessings of loft living, we have nearly infinite space upwards!) to create black and white patterned banners.
To be continued...


  1. Exciting! Are you close to bringing home baby??

  2. No, not even close, really...but we have to prove we have a place for the baby to live/sleep to pass our home study. You pretty much have to have everything in order. It's weird, because we literally built this nursery into the house when it was built in 2009...crazy that it will eventually be filled one day in the next year or so.

    Our social worker at our agency has told us we will probably get our referral from May onward. We are just crossing our fingers, trying to raise all the money we can for the country fee, and balance being with my mom as she battles cancer and work and the journey of adoption. I just try to keep my eyes on the prize.
