Heavenly Nursery

I attend church at Stateline Church which is situation on the Tennessee/Alabama state line about 2 miles from my home.  We decided our church needed a library and we felt that the best place would be the current home of our nursery.  We had recently remodeled our Fellowship Hall and made several new classrooms, one of which was to be our new nursery.   Since my own son, Jeremy had just turned 30 years old and no hopes of a grandchild of my own anywhere in the near future I decided to embark on redecorating the nursery. Our furnishings showed promise but the decor was dated to say the least so on one of our "Yard Sale" excursions to Hohenwald, TN to their annual "Octoberfest in I told Jennifer and Barbara to be on the lookout for anything nursery related.  Well needless to say that God blessed us with a good day as he always does and the very first booth we visited Jennifer found this nursery set all from Target for $30.00.   Included in the set was the bumper pads, comforter, pillows, curtains, changing table mattress, cover, pad, two pictures and pillows.  Jen tried to get me to "jew" her down to $25.00 but even I knew a bargain when I see one. 

Yes, it was pink...but did I mention that I always wanted a granddaughter? 

The baby bed was old but the new accessories made it look like new. 

I found this saying at my favorite online shop, and couldn't resist it. 

A $5.00 frame from Hobby Lobby and a 50 cent sheet of scrapbook paper made a cute picture.

Another one.

This was a curb side find that Jennifer had Glen stop on the side of the road and pick up.  She used it for a while on her back porch filled with flowers but when I asked her if I could have it for a toy box she readily said yes.  Thanks, Jen! 

Yep, even the pictures were included in the price!

I had this picture frame I paid 50 cents for at a yard sale but never really had a plan for it.  A little scrapbook paper, a fancy font and a command hook and it made a great Nursery sign on the door.

Yes, even the changing table pad was included, along with a matching basket for wipes, etc. 

I love this nursery...just waiting for some babies to enjoy it with me!
