Congratulations on your pregnancy and it a short time being able to hold an angel from our loving Heavenly Father. I have two children and even though they are teenagers, not a day goes by that I do not look at them and realize how blessed I am. I will pray for you that the rest of your pregnancy is calm and that your energy is restored. Many blessings sent to you, your sweetheart,and Baby W :)

So excited for you and Josh and have been thinking of you since hearing the news. What a wonderful blessing and joyous time.
In love with your beautiful pictures...and I too collected vintage baby treasures early on...I even purchased a white wicker bassinet with wicker canopy before we were even married!


What wonderful news Aiice, congratulations to you both! Now you have teh fun of decorating a baby's room in your new home - it will fun to see what you come up with.
I hope you are feeling better soon - I remember those days well, and in my case, the pre-natal vitamins made me even sicker - ugh! Thankfully you can lay down and rest whenever you need to!

I remember painting a plaster version of one of those Beatrix Potter figurines. I wonder what ever happened to it?

I adore Beatrix Potter and similar styles too, my little one has so many Peter Rabbit things ... and our favorite is this, you HAVE to get it: http://www.amazon.com/Beatrix-Potter-Nursery-Rhyme-Book/dp/0723262810/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1297268706&sr=8-3 We have been listening to that for months, and still we're enchanted.

Take care,


PS: The Tailor of Gloucester is my favorite story too... I had to cry when I read it. There are some songs on the cd with the rhymes of this story, they are wonderful!

Hi Alice,
I just read your article in Somerset Life... I needed a new blog to visit too.
And so I found you! And this wonderful news! Congrats to you and you Hubby. When you are halfway the pregnancy you will be on overload with energy. Believe me... I am 33 weeks and expecting my 6th! Every pregnancy is different but the tiredness and energy seems to always be the same.
I will tag along in this beautiful journey you are on. By the way... When I was still living in the Netherlands I had my first. And I too enjoyd Beatrix Potter in the nursery. Thank you for sharing these beautiful moments with us... Blessings...
You can follow me and my pregnancy on my blog if you like.


congratulations! truly wonderful news. Lucky baby to have such a creative mama :o)

take it easy, and enjoy your pregnancy.

Hello Alice!

I don't know if you remember our past talks , but It seems we have another thing in common! My husband and I are expecting our 1st in the beginning of August. So right now I'm in my 16th week. I'm finally getting my energy back, so I hope to work on my blog and etsy shops. As soon as we find out the beginning of March of what we are having, I'm hoping to post about getting the nursery ready. Be sure to check it out, as I will with yours.
Congratulations and best wishes!!



This is the nicest baby bedroom I have seen! I love it! Thank you for sharing your blessing with us.

Congratulations Alice and Joshua! That is wonderful news. I can't wait to see your beautiful nursery. I know it will be just perfect for Baby W.

Congrats to you and Joshua! I'm sure you will make fabulous parents!
Love the nursery ideas, I had a Beatrix Potter theme for my son and daughter's nursery 19 years ago (they are 18 months apart:)! I have some of the figurines that you have. I think touches of this theme will be wonderful for a girl or a boy (it worked for my kids!).


You have such a beautiful collection already. I love the Beatrix Potter pieces. When my daughter was born, my sister gave me a book of vintage Peter Rabit posters, which I framed. Although my daughter is older and has changed rooms, I still have a few of them hanging in my office. They make me happy.
