I am having so much fun creating a nursery at “Grandma’s house” for our new granddaughter.
A sweet little haven for her to rest if I ever decide to let her out of my arms when she is at our home!
I promised I’d show you how I turned bumper pads into a window treatment valance. Didn’t it turn out great?!
Almost everything in this room was a passed on from a friend, was given as a gift, is something I made, or something I re-purposed.
Thanks to our friends Sue and Rodney for “gifting” us with this beautiful crib they had outgrown from their two beautiful granddaughters.
And thanks to our BFFs Jill and Todd who gifted us with this beautiful rocking chair when we learned we were going to become grandparents. (Hope you don’t mind I painted and distressed it!)
And thanks to our sweet Joyce and “Oh Rob” for this darling antique child’s art desk with paper roll that will be so fun in coming years!
And a dear friend, Diane, who sent this sweet little hanging pillow months before our granddaughter arrived, but made me wait until her birth to open (and I really did!). What truth there is in this message! What joy!
I’m looking forward to reading many, many books – over and over and over – in the years to come.
And playing with the basket of toys generously passed down from a sweet friend and incredible young Mom, Stefanie.
Sometimes I just walk into this room and smile… thinking of the memories that are going to be created and the love that is already there from the sharing of so many.
I remember the days when this was a little boy’s room with blue marbled walls and baseball trophies. I reminisce about the two boys who shared a wall between their rooms and secrets I still don’t know about… Two boys who were best buddies when they were little, didn’t like each other very much when they were teenagers, and are back to being each other’s “bests” as young adults.
Creating a nursery at Grandma’s house…
It is so very much
home sweet home.
Cheers & Hugs,
