Born January 3rd at 7:35, right here in our home. She weighed 6lbs. 4oz. and is 18.25 in. long.
My brother gave this great little piano to me as a birthday (or was it Christmas?) present I think about 10 years ago. We were browsing antique stores downtown as only weird homeschooled teenagers would do, and I fell in love with it. He surprised me with it a few weeks later.
In the past several years I’ve really been looking forward to my children being able to use it. Yesterday, I lugged it in to the living room, and today I propped Israel up and observed. He absolutely loves it!
Anyway, I’m thinking about possibly painting it some bright, child-like color, since it’s got a few spots of wear and discoloration on it. What do you think? Should I leave it as is and consider the wear to be “character”? If I do paint it, what color should I do? I’ve posted a few pictures of our living room on this blog, so that should make it easier for you all to help me figure out what color would go. Comment away.
This is a vintage, hand-made bunny I found when I was out the other day. She was indecent, so I began making her a pinafore out of two vintage handkerchiefs I had stocked in my fabric bin. I’m going to put some pretty buttons on the dress and make her a nice white blouse for underneath. But… I can’t keep just referring to her as “her.” What should I call her? What name do you think of when you see that face?
Once she is fully-clothed and clad with a fancy name, I will be putting her in my Etsy shop.
[as a prideful aside: when I brought her home, Peter made a face at her. She was kind of dirty and plain. But after I showed him what she looked like all cleaned and dolled up, he smiled and said “You can keep her for our baby, if you want.”]
