Deuce Cities Henhouse

So do you guys remember back in May when I was freaking out about what kind of chair to get for the nursery? Well I thought I would put my two cents in and let you know how I feel about it now.

Yellow Fever

Slowly but surely, I will have this "new kid's room" thing figured out. First of all whoever decided that it should be near impossible to photograph yellow on grey?
