How fun has it been decorating a nursery for a little girl? So fun it's hard to stop! When I was pregnant with Sam I didn't know how to sew and a little site called Pinterest hadn't yet taken the world by storm. Having those two things this time around made working on Evelyn's nursery so easy. I didn't start out with a bird theme in mind, it just kind of evolved. I have to admit it fits us well! I also didn't think I'd want to paint the nursery pink, but I found the perfect shade, made just for someone who doesn't really like pink!
Here's what I've accomplished since finding out we were having a little girl.
It's a lot, and I think I'm done. Mostly. For now.
Mama Bird's projects
giraffe, bird, elephant and bunny
letter E and felt flowers
glider and ottoman covers
sunshine print (was Sam's)
Evelyn Bible verse print
nightlight (was Sam's)
Gram's baby dress
my white baby shoes
quilted teddy bear - made by my Grandma Tresenriter using her old quilt
Mother's Day angel from Pops
heartbeat bear from Ms. Ellis
birdcage from Cousin Megan
My lamb, given to me by my Uncle Brad over thirty years ago
Other lucky finds
blue valises from Basic French (were Sam's)
crib from Jenny Lind - new, but just like the one I had as a baby!
Now all we need is Baby Evelyn to make the nursery complete!
