To my surprise, my bassinet cover idea for my daughter Story was on Ohdeedoh, although seeing from the comments, it was met with a bit of controversy (sorry didn't mean to).  I understand, but seeing that this is my third child, I see this absolutely fine for my family, BUT perhaps not with yours, which is completely fine and respectable:)
***FYI, to be used with caution and at own discretion.

Thrifty Finds-Hummingbirds

On one of my thrift store shopping endeavors, I found this pretty kitchen towel (at least I think it is), and snapped it up.  My daughter loves "birdies" so now it hangs near their bathroom (the kids share a room).  A cool thing about this towel, is the names of each hummingbird is underneath.  Cute and educational :)
Treasure hunting is fun.

Upcycled Top

Can't remember when I bought this tube top from Forever21, but  I know it was a long time ago.  For some reason I never parted with it.  Now I am grateful I didn't!  I imagined my little Key running around in the sun wearing, a yellow dress, smiling at me :)  So... off I went, measuring and cutting here and there (but not much), and attaching cute, braided straps.  I originally saw braided fabric from my friends darling necklaces.
Still looks a little plain, but not sure if I'll add.  Perhaps a brooch or some flower???

Planet Earth

I first saw this idea at an IKEA so I decide to try it.  It was a little tricky, since I had to draw on rice paper as accurately as possible!  Once the hard part was over, painting came a lot easier.  I placed it above my son Rock's dresser, lighting his side of the room.  I still haven't decided what I'm gonna do with my Key's pendant lamp shade.

Story Corner

As we wait for Story (that will be her name) I've been organizing, decorating, cleaning her little corner.  I'm so excited for her to come out and meet all of us.  I decided to make it more refreshing for her and me, I know she'll be tired, and shocked from her long journey, but I'm sure she'll come around to loving planet Earth :)  I'm not done with her corner yet but I wanted to share in case I didn't get around doing the other stuff because of labor (yikes!).  I also want to share the darling baby shower that was thrown for Story this past Saturday...So cute and lovely!
I made a cover for the pack n' play we used for the other two kiddos, and it makes it look more elegant, I like it, hopefully she does too!

The canopy I got from this site, and it worked perfect!  IKEA curtains + embroidery hoop--easy and cheap.

***Make sure skirt is secure and NOT to be used when child is old enough to use pack n' play with mesh at bottom. This is secure and going to used for a newborn.

Thrifty Find-Luck of the Irish

Found this pretty textile with a map of Ireland and various images around it that represent Ireland.  I couldn't pass it up, and happily took this little treasure home for my son.  
I'm not sure if it's in its permanent home, but for now it decorates the kids bathroom.

This "BookBook" for MacBook Pro! Pretty pricey but if you're willing, I'm sure you'll LOVE it, I know I would.
