~ A Sailing We Go ~

....Sailing into a toddlers room, that is! ...Here is the teaser made known! =)

My son is not a baby any more.... =(, I am (slowly!) on the way to making it a little boy's room now and put away the 'nursery' look. I am working on cutting out curtains and a quilt... (but who knows how soon I'll get it done with the list I have of all the other things I want to get accomplish this fall/winter!!! =)

Anyway, back to the sailboat sign, since this is what this post is about! I painted this up during a couple of nap times for J's room, since I want to do a nautical, sailboat theme.

(Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest and a little blurry - it was a gray day here when I took the pictures, so the lighting isn't the best!)

I like how it turned out - just need to get it all done and then I can decorate! (I like to gather everything first and then put it all up at once. =) That's just me.) I also found a couple of things at GW recently, too, which will be fun in there when I get at it!!

I just need to find a nice, sailboat now..... Know of any someone might be giving away!?!? ;-)

Joining in for Met Monday, and on Tuesday, A Soft Place to Land!

That is SO cute! You did a super job on your sign, and I love what it says. It's great that you are bringing what is most important in life into focus for your little one.

I also love sailboats and have used them in our home. I never get tired of the sea. I love Jesus, too! :-)
