Girl Sanctuary

Well, there's nothing better than a medical scare to light a fire under this momma's rear end! I finally finished the nursery, I can't wait to sleep here tonight!

We lightly used this crib when Sean was a baby, so it's still in great shape. The dresser was one my Grandma had & she painted on it in 1967.

I painted this dresser when I was pregnant with Aidan. It was Doug's Grandma D's dresser.

These are doll dresses made by my Great Grandma and Grandma Eleanor. I loved playing with them when I was a girl!

My mom made this blanket for Ella, using yarn that matched the room. Since crib bumpers and quilts are a SIDS hazzard, I see no reason to buy them. We get a lot of use out of my mom's blankies.

Doug's Grandma M made this growth chart when he was a toddler. It's so neat to see how big Doug was at ages similar to our boys.

The pictures/art in the room are a collection of images from our family or marriage. It's like being surrounded by family and memories, very cozy!

i love it! You did a great job. Sorry to hear you have to travel for those appointments after all. That stinks. Hope everything falls into place for you.

Good luck with your appointments...
I love the room... You are really talented in decorating, and how special, having all these family heirlooms around for Ella.
