My Nursery

I painted this tree on the wall and my husband painted and recovered the rocking chair. We really wanted a cozy rocker but it just wasn't in the budget right now. 
 Eventually there will be a small white bookshelf to the right of the tree. We love to read and we want our son to love it too. =)
My sister and cousins had this quilt made by the etsy shop Moon Spirit Studios. She does very custom quilts that are just precious.
 My sister-in-law made the owl quilt, my aunt made the bumper pads, and my future sister-in-law made the little owl pillow.
I made the letters hanging on the wall. I posted about them here.
This dresser has a dark green stain and was in my in-law's first bedroom set. It goes perfectly in this room.
This mirror was hanging vertically in our downstairs half bath when we moved in. And by hanging I mean glued to the wall. You know the type. Our house was built in 93. We had my dad take it and frame it out to make it look more modern but then it was too large for the space. I kept it knowing I could do something with it later on, and here it is! My husband restrung it and I painted black stripes on it. I love a good re-vamp!

Soon there will be a black floating shelf under the mirror and a shelf unit hanging to the right of the mirror. I'm going to cover the backing of the shelf unit with b/w striped paper.

We went with a black dresser and white crib because I don't like all of the furniture in a room to match. It overwhelms my senses.
Our sister-in-law gave us this door pull and it is perfect! I wanted to get one for the one door on the changing table anyway. We probably would have gone with this one from Anthropologie - my favorite store. I may end up having to get this amazing wall hook for his room. It would be perfect.

While I was browsing Anthropologie's website I came across this adorable owl switch plate. I think I may need that in my kitchen. LOVE!

A Great Photographer

Ashley Dawn is so talented!
She makes me wish I had gotten professional maternity photos taken. =(

I would love to win her contest, but I really just want people to know about her. She is a natural light photographer based in the Dallas area.

Monkey Mobile

I made this mobile months ago for my brother and sister-in-law's precious baby girl Rowynn. Her room is a sock monkey theme. =)

I found the monkey at Walgreens and made her a little piano and a tutu. There is a heart on the C#/Db key because her mommy and daddy used that as their wedding theme. They are essentially the same note, but can be written two different ways. Therefore C# = Db: it's a love metaphor. =)

These are the ribbons that hang all around the monkey.

And here is the assembled mobile hanging from my art room ceiling fan!  =)
