And then, the rocking chair broke...so in a panic we received yet another hand me down from the Wilsons. I somehow managed between short naps to whip together a cover for that one. It's a bit crooked and I forgot the ties...but it looks ok.
My mom sends us lots of boxes filled with treasures. One such surprise was this tiny golden (ok, it's brass or something...) owl. And the radio is a gift from Henri's Aunt Christa. We had to go buy this shelf to take care of our overflowing book problem, again thanks to the Wilsons!
And then I wanted a little collage wall, so we grabbed some supplies at Michael's (Letter H, treeround, orange paint, chalkboard paint) and an abacus at Vintage Thrift (my new favorite shop on Orange and Wardlow). Still need to get the photo of an Oklahoman barn printed for the frame....but my mantra has become "one thing at a time".
Another favorite shop is the Feed Store on 4th and Cherry. They had these fun vintage toys and some old 45's of children's music...my favorite is the Oklahoma Musical album.
We also grabbed some sticks on Henri's first hike in Palos Verdes a while back and made a mobile for him. Sure beats the $50 I wanted to spend on a bamboo one from etsy. Yay for making stuff!
Overall, a success in my book. Just 7 months after he was born I think I can pretty much be all done. And I definitely have Henri's stamp of approval. :)
