But this post isn't about my total lack of appetite, nor is it about the mad vacuuming or floor washing that took place this weekend. And it's not about the complete purging of everything that holds anything going on around here - those baskets in our living room coffee table? Now empty but for three: two filled with Everyday Food cookbooks and one with S's stuff that I didn't dare throw away. Don't worry, I'll get up the nerve to start throwing his hoarded stock piles of junk and papers away too ;)
No, it's about the awesome progress we've made in the nursery! We're still several projects short of a grand reveal, but we have a bunch of stuff to share and several tutorials I've put together showing how you can replicate some of the dozens of sewing projects I've tackled over the past few months.
But today I present our baby bee's mobile above its cradle:
our wedding, where my obsession with paper lanterns all began:

The lanterns are hung by seven hooks, evenly placed in two rows on the ceiling - you know we were up on ladders with the square rulers and tape measures making sure those things were precise within an eighth of an inch!
Ikea Knappa pendant that we hardwired last spring! And I'm happy to say that S apologized for ever doubting me.
Paper lanterns are all over pinterest in nurseries and weddings everywhere; what's your favorite style of baby mobile?
