Here it is!! I’m so excited with how the nursery turned out; it’s a room filled with love from people close to us, as you’ll see as I explain different things! It would have turned out so differently if I hadn’t been on bed rest and able to shop for different items, and I’m thankful so many things are homemade rather than store-bought! It is a very peaceful place to me, and I can’t wait to sit in that chair adoring our babies! I will list sources at the bottom of the post for those interested.
My mom and I made the little owl pillow together, and the crocheted baby blanketes were a great way to spend my time during bed rest!
My mom made the baby quilts that are draped on the cribs. One of my favorite parts of the room :) Isn’t she SO talented?! The quilts are the same size, though they don’t look like it in the photo above. She was also so generous to make the crib bedding – both the sheets and skirts. I especially love the ruffle crib skirt!The 5 prints on the wall are another favorite of mine in the room. My friend Julie threw me a wonderful baby shower, and her husband illustrated these little prints for the shower invitation. The minute I saw the invite, I knew I had to display it somehow in the nursery! The first print says “Classic Pairs aren’t born very often”, and then the next three are famous pairs – Jack & Jill, Raggedy Ann & Andy, Dick & Jane, and then the last one is Baby Boy & Baby Girl Wollenhaupt :) See the original shower invite on my friend’s blog here.
The fabric garland will always bring back memories for me, because the day I purchased the fabrics, I had to have my right leg scanned for blood clots (due to terrible swelling and purple veins in my ankle, and none were found), and then later that afternoon was the first of my three hospital visits, and the day my bed rest journey began. If only I had known at the time that my trip to JoAnn Fabrics would be my last outing in quite some time!
The ADORABLE little baby hats hanging on the wall were crocheted by my talented friend, Rebecca. They will most definitely be worn by our babies, but I couldn’t resist displaying them as well!
These scripture prints above the bookcase were made by my friends Lindsay & Sonja. I squeeled when I openened these; they’re perfect! I love having these truths displayed!
The teeny tiny baby booties were crocheted by me :)These two “wish jars” were a part of the shower Julie threw for me; inside are cards that she had everyone write down a special wish or prayer for our boy & girl. All the words inside are a beautiful treasure to me :)
The bookshelves were constructed by my dad. I love how they turned out! Also, the “Albuququerque Turkey” book? My favorite book on those shelves, because it’s from a couple who became like parents to me when I lived in Albuquerque back in 2008! (Thank you for the thoughtful gift, John & DJ!)
