It’s been so fun to see different parts of the baby’s nursery come together these last few weeks. Even though we’re in a one-bedroom apartment we’ve been able to create a little corner for Baby, and I have to admit ~ it’s the sweetest sight to wake up to in the morning :) And soon, in just a few weeks really, there will be a baby sleeping over there!!! Ahh :) so so exciting!

With our move in September to California we started fresh with our bedroom colors {we brought minimal bedding/blankets}. We decided to mimic the colors we picked for the nursery, which is lite gray, cream + orange so the shared space was complimentary. So far we have the changing table + heirloom baby cradle assembled and art hung on the wall. Baby’s clothes have been washed + organized, too. Ohhhh my gosh, I can’t believe how miniature everything is :)

Next on the to-buy list is a dresser for babe. We totally lucked out, our personal closet has a huge built-in storage unit inside — which means Zack + I don’t need a dresser for our clothes. Whew! Talk about a space saver…

I’m really looking forward to these final weeks leading up to my time away from work. I know it’s going to feel so weird to step back for a few weeks, but hey, I have the best excuse possible: our baby to hold + family close by. I’m finalizing some amazing things to publish on my blog during that time, including shop updates {wink wink}. It’s going to be so different, but so so great. I’ll share more photos of the nursery in a couple of weeks, once we have everything in place.

    it was so hard stepping away from Funky Vintage Lovely when we got our foster baby at 6 weeks old {he was so so tiny…only 8 pounds}. but I knew he needed me. All of me. I have taken pretty much a year off and don’t reget one single minute. Our finances have been tighter without Funky Vintage Lovely money…but I have not one single reget. That first year goes by way too fast. Take your time and enjoy that babe. Your Gussy Sews community will be there waiting for you when the time is right to return. Love your heart Maggie!

    Love the artwork…so adorable!

    I noticed you have some baby products on your dresser…have you heard of the site http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ ?
    You can check the chemical levels of the products you use on yourself & baby. I did this with the Mustela products that we were using and was shocked when they had certain carcinogens and fragrances.

    good luck, lady–you are SO close to baby day!
