Here's the quilt over the crib, adding some color to the neutral backdrop.
Some interesting and handcrafted items hang above the crib.
The yarn-wrapped antlers were a handmade gift, and I stitched the fox embroidery. They purchased the owl print and the vintage metal hanger was among items I got from a family friend. The silver keys are echoed in the hanger.
I never showed the finished fox before, since I completed the stitching the morning of Elaine's baby shower but then took it back to put in a new hoop for display.
In the crib are some soft toys, including a flat Teddy, and a Daddy Doll, made to order to look just like my son-in-law, with his beard and plaid. I love the fox and bear pillows too. So cute.

Elaine didn't want to be in the picture but agreed to hold up the quilt. Her legs made it in, tho!
The back is a single fabric, which was requested by the couple, and certainly easier for me, though I love a pieced back too!
In the corner Chris hung some spice racks they bought for next to nothing, to use as book racks. Clever!
A wooden dresser, re-purposed from Elaine & Chris's bedroom, makes a good base for the changing pad and modern diaper holder. The cool lamp was the result of much hunting for just the right look and color. The colorful artwork above was another special print they found. Not a great shot of it, tho, sorry!
I brought one additional gift over to the nursery today. This is a bib that belonged to my husband when he was a baby. It is an obviously well-used and loved item, maybe hand embroidered for my mother-in-law by a friend or relative. I found this cool shadowbox at Michael's, covered a piece of foamcore with the same linen I used for the fox embroidery, and simply pinned the bib to the foamcore. Now, a few closeups:
