So, my two girls share a room. It’s the only choice we have, but it is so special, that I think we would do it even if we had a choice.
Lately I’ve been nesting. So, I cleaned out and organized all of Lizzy-Jane’s toys and rearranged the furniture in the nursery. And, that got me thinking about decorating. It really is such a thrill for us isn’t it? I never knew!! Anyway, that got me thinking about decals.
So, I looked them up on Pinterest, and OH MY GOODNESS there were so many lovely ones!
Like this one:
Wait a minute. I’m *REALLY* having a hard time choosing.
And, this one:
OK, I could go on and on forever with the trees. But, I’ll spare you.
But, you’ve got to see this:
You see?! I could label the girls’ *sides* of the room. Wouldn’t that be lovely?
Anyway, so yesterday I took some pictures of my nursery with the intention of sharing them with you, and getting some feed back.
Let’s start with the butterfly. I *actually* PAINTED that!! Yes, I did. I did it in college for a set. We were doing “The Rivals”, and I was a scenic artist. I’ve kept it all these years, and now it hangs in my girls’ room. It recently moved to it’s current spot. And now, it is the first thing you see as you walk into the room.
Here’s Lizzy-Jane playing with the ever popular SMARKS!! And, it is a picture of Claire’s quilt. It was hand made by a lovely lady at our church! I’m realizing now that I should have gotten a closer picture of it.
And, here’s a picture of another FANTASTIC quilt. This one was made by a dear friend of my Mom’s for Lizzy-Jane when she was a wee babe. Oh, and I slept in that bed! Really. Believe it!! It is a family heirloom, and I am so thankful to my father for passing it down to me. And, check out those cute little ballerinas on the sheets. Those are from my Mom, GG.
check out the Minky Couture blanket in Claire’s crib. Yep, we got that for Christmas, and we LOVE it!! It actually follows her around in the bed, and keeps her covered. Yeah, it blows my mind, too. But, really, she does stay covered all night. I think it is because it is kind of weighted. There is lots of fabric in that beautifully soft blanket!!
And, here’s a closer look at how Lizzy-Jane sleeps. This quilt was given to us by my dear friend, Bess. It is much loved in our household.
And, here’s *THE* doll case. The doll in the blue dress was actually hand made by my Grandma for ME when I was a small girl. I remember her giving it to me, so I was probably about 6, not sure though.
And, here’s the Candy Land poster. Lizzy-Jane got that as one of her birthday gifts from her Grandma. Oh, and I actually covered that green box myself. It was a box of diapers in a former life, and now it holds dolls, blankets and stuffed animals.
So, what do you think? Do you like my nursery as much as I do?
I know I could do more work to it, but I hesitate to do so, because we may be moving again in March. We definitely want to get back to our old town before Lizzy-Jane starts school, because the schools there are AWESOME!!
Anyway, If I was to do a decal, where do you think I could put it?
