nursery progress...

things are moving right along in georgia's room...funny that her room is the only room in the whole house that has window treatments. anyways, we found a bookcase for all her books (for $7.00 i might add) and the glider came a couple of weeks ago and i am looking forward to spending lots and lots of time together in that chair.
isn't it awesome...here's a close up shot. the fabric is so great and matched our colors and other fabrics so well. i am truly in love with this chair....
and the story behind this painting...when we moved here we quickly became friends with the couple who taught our Sunday school class, Brian & Ashley. she is an amazing artist, among everything else and i saw this painting one day in her studio and fell in love. it wasn't finished at the time and still it took my breath away. the Shepherd and His sheep. i loved it. fast forward a couple of years...just recently she asked if i wanted her to paint something for georgia's room...my answer was 'yeah, i want the Shepherd painting' i was laughing when i said it because i knew it wasn't finished and she of ALL people has the least amount of free time but last week she called me and showed up with the painting...

she even put some pink flowers in the grass! i couldn't get my hands on it just yet, she just brought it by to look at the colors with the room and is doing some other finishing things to it, but my goodness...isn't it beautiful! i can't wait to get it framed and hang it in my baby girl's room. what a blessing this picture will be for her (and me). i will tell her every single day about the good Shepherd. every. single. day.
