a space for her

Things in A's nursery are starting to wrap up. The only things really missing are a crib skirt my mama & I will make in the coming weeks, and of course, our girl. We've spent the past nine months filling it with treasures we have found here and there. With the hope that we could create a cozy space for our daughter. A simple, bright, happy space that belongs to only her. 
I am pleased to think we have achieved just that. 

Shopping list:


Crib, cot "canopy" (curtain on an embroidery hoop), abacus, toy sorter, stuffed radish, baby gym, round mirror, diaper basket sorter, lamp, and white shelves.


Rug, elephant rocking toy, red elephant pillow, elephant garland, elephant and heart wall hangers.

Felt ball garland mobile, made by Steven and me. Balls bought from HandbehgFELTS etsy shop (attached to a small embroidery hoop).

Various books and toys - either thrifted or from S & I's childhood
Peach pillow - thrifted
Rocking chair -  Baxton Studio (via Amazon.com)
Dresser - craigslist find
Polka dot quilt - sewed by my mom
Diapers - Flip cloth
Peach wall - painted using this tutorial
