personally, i see a nursery as being a neutral room. even before i found out her gender, i envisioned something that could carry over from the rest of the house, as opposed to being the typical pink or blue. while those are certainly cute rooms too, i saw the colors and textures as more organic and raw from nature. soothing for the baby as well as myself. i am pleased to say that my idea transpired into reality. thinking back when i would nurse 10 times a day in that room, i never really wanted to leave. and now when naptime or bedtime arrives, i feel mollie's calmness as we enter into her little haven.
crewel fabric for bumper, blanket, and pillow--leftovers from kitchen curtains in MV, thanks mom!
i chose the jenny lend crib because that's what i had and i thought it was the most simplistic(plus it shows off the pretty bedding better than the bulkier ones)
i am very thankful that the glider is so comfortable and sturdy. it was made by the same girl that did the bedding. i chose the brown mattlesse pipped in sage because it would be durable and comfortable. and it is.
the changing table is great. magic moon-think it closed recently. the black and white photos above (which are crooked b/c mollie likes to play with them while her diaper is being changed) are one of each of my parents-mollie and billy, tommy's parents-brenda and jim, and of course mollie's parents:-). we were all around 3 or 4 yrs old.
kathlyn painted the toy chest. mollie loves it!
