A new baby

Well, dear readers, I’ve been wanting to share with you the news that there is a new baby in the White Cabana family. Since I contribute on White Wednesdays and consider living in white a lightening and inspiring experience, I’m so delighted to welcome baby Everett to the family! My sister’s second child is here and he is adorable- his big sister Anabelle loves him very much, too.

I’ve always had a soft spot for handmade decorations and I adore these felted creations on Etsy in the shop Lazy Animals. Don’t you want the entire collection?

In the Nursery: A Magical Crib

Lately all the baby-related photos I have come across all have an element of fantasy and fairy tale. Last month I posted about this castle bunk-bed and today I bring you Petit Tresor’s carriage crib. With a price tag of $15 000 perhaps it is best reserved for royalty?
