SK’s Nursery That Was

Apologies to our 5 readers for the blog-silence in recent weeks.  We have been pretty busy around here lately, but really I haven’t been blogging because I’m so pregnant and I don’t want to subject you all to my 24/7 train of emotions.  Besides, everyone else writes so eloquently about pregnancy and motherhood and waiting and pregnancy essentials and labor tips all that stuff.  I literally have nothing to say about anything, so…  I won’t.

Instead, before the world has turned a little more and completely shut the door on my first baby’s babyhood, I thought I’d do a little post about Sara’s nursery that was.  It’s now almost completely transformed into a little dude’s room for baby brother who, of course, will not use it until a few months down the road but preggo mama gots ta nest!  Once it’s done, I’ll share it with you but for now won’t you take a long, rambly, picture-heavy walk down memory lane with me?

And I made a mobile based on this pin.  I really like how it turned out and it has added sentimental value because one of the doilies I used was crotched by my late Grandma Ross.

The tissue paper poofs are so fun, but they didn’t stay for long. Dave is too tall and the ceiling is too low for things like that. Plus, it really make the room feel a little smaller, unfortunately.

I’m a sucker for ball fringe.

Rose did this with grandparent pictures in Margot’s nursery and I loved it, so I copied it. SK loves saying goodnight to her grandparents  every night, so I’m moving them to her new big girl room so she can keep it up.

Luckily we never had a problem; hopefully her brother takes after her in that respect!

  1. I have been missing you on your blog silence, but as a fellow SO pregnant mama I totally understand. 🙂 I love SKs nursery. Ours isn't changing much as Michael isn't moving out but the baby will be moving in eventually. So it's just transforming… I was ALL over the color matching, but I'm ok with it. It's yellow and gray and for a while was the most put together room in the house. Not so much anymore…

  2. Ahh, the ball fringe! I love it. That's one of my top decorating goals for the new house 😉

    I couldn't remember your due date, so during one of my bouts of pregnant insomnia recently I convinced myself that your baby was either here or imminently so. That sounds way more creepy than I meant it – just saying I was thinking of you & glad to hear you're well 🙂

    • I'm like a celebrity and being tight-lipped about my due date, haha! No, it's June 29th, so I'm 37 weeks right now. Thanks for thinking of me 🙂 So much to do still!
