Elise's room is done! Yay!!! I love it!
Want to see? Good, cause there are a whole lot of photos.
Here's the view as you walk in. Blue walls for a little girl room is my favorite. It's just so calming and unexpected. I painted Lydia's room blue when she was a baby too.
I would say the theme of the room is "vibrant handmade".
I've been wanting a Pottery Barn rocker for years. It's fantastic.
Lydia loaned her new "Mrs. Hug" to the nursery. It was a handmade Christmas gift from my SIL, Sara.
Shane took advantage of the space behind the door and made some pretty little bookshelves, just like he made for Lydia's room.
Don't you just want to grab a book and stay awhile?
I really wanted some soft gauzy white curtains. But you know what?
Black out curtains are worth the slight style sacrifice.
Of course I have a vintage lamp from Etsy shop Penelope Plum.
Still looking for just the right lamp shade. This one works for now.
I used a couple of my shadow boxes to frame some of Lydia's hand-knit baby booties.
Organized, happy shelves.
The yellow basket is filled with handmade fabric blocks from my friend Kristi.
I think I need a few less board books. The shelf is starting to bend.
Blocks made by my SIL Sara.
Bibs made by my sister Emily, and burp clothes made by cousin Lindsey.
Love is in the Air print from Minted.
My friend Lisa embroidered the most adorable oneies for Elise.
Once she outgrew them, I put them on display.
Washington (mommy) and Arkansas (daddy) teethers from Little Sapling Toys.
Calf leather baby booties from my cowboy grandma.
See the rest of Elise's newborn photo shoot here.
Elise LOVES her mobile. Almost as much as I do.
My mom loaned me these little vintage handmade yarn animals she found.
I put them on embroidery thread and attached them to an embroidery hoop.
Before anyone freaks out that I broke the blogging rule that says "thou shalt not do a nursery reveal without showing Sophie the Giraffe" - you can catch a glimpse of her here.
And now to my favorite wall that took the last 8 months of my life to finish.
Who knew embroidery was so fun? And so addictive.
Click on the photo to see the pieces closer.
Still looking for just the right hamper for this corner.
Another onesie from Lisa turned to wall art.
This beast took FOREVER to finish. I wish I had done brighter thread. But, live and learn.
Maybe embellish it a bit?
See? my projects are never really done. :)
Darling yarn "E" from my sister Molly.
Pretty room for a pretty little girl. I have another pretty room for my other pretty girl that you can see here. They kind of match each other :)
Now dear Elise. Mommy spent a lot of time working on your new bedroom.
You have to start SLEEPING in this crib.
