"Is that the heartbeat?"

I had an amazing day yesterday!
I went to the baby doctor!!!
I had no idea that I was far along enough to hear the heartbeat...but we did!
I can not describe the amount of joy that went souring through me when I saw and heard his/her heartbeat.
I feel like my entire perspective on life has completely changed - just since hearing the pitter patter of God's little blessing! Today I am 8wks 4 days. Our little jelly bean has a heartbeat of 182 bpm and I am due July 7th!
 I am still on cloud 9 :)
 (See the end of this post for pics of our little blessing)

I FINALLY finished decorating! It only took me 4 days!! Ha! :)
This hutch belonged to my mother. She bought it when I was very young from an antique store in Glendale, Kentucky. I begged my father for it a few years ago and he finally caved. I'm so glad  he generously gave it to me. Not only has it been a focal point in our living room but it is a memory of my beautiful mother.
I had considered stripping and painting it a couple of years ago but I am so glad I didn't!
It's rustic look is what makes it an attractive piece of history. I love it so!

This little shelf hangs near my couch. I love her bright red cheerfulness!
The ever-so popular Empire Santa blow mold!
Isn't he such a cutie?
I love this little tree. I sit it in this wooden planter every year. I think it's the perfect place for it.


Our little jelly bean made his/her debut yesterday!
Such a proud mama! :) I get to see him/her again the day after Christmas!!

Happy Thursday and happy thrifting!

I so love vintage Christmas items! They always put a smile on my face and you have quite a collection. Congrats on your jelly bean!:) Thanx for coming to THT.

Jann Olson said...

Oh how exciting Denise. I remember those days and awesome that was. Just wait till the little peanut starts kicking. Loved every minute of it! Your cabinet full of vintage treasures is priceless. My blow mold is different. I think my large outdoor one might be similar. How do you find out their names? You are so educated on these things. Like the names of Pyrex. I never would've know if it wasn't for people like you, Erica, and Jill. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup and congrats!
Hugs,
Jann

I was blessed to be at my DIL's doctor's appointment last month. We listened to my grandbaby son's vibrant heartbeat. Oh, what a thrill!
