Nursery

The Nursery, is a "proper" nursery now!!! Up until now, we've used Tiny's room as a guest room. Its had a queensize bed in there. Miss M and I dismantled the QS bed, her single bed, and then Tiny's cot! Miss M has scored the QS bed (which now takes up almost every bit of floor space in her room!!! But she loves it!) and Tiny gets Miss M's single bed, and I moved the cot into her room. The little room we had her cot set up in, which is right next to her bedroom, I've made into a bit of a "toy room"! I don't think, for one minute, she'll actually stay in there and play with her toys... so I may as well call it a store room?!!

When I took out the QS bed, I found a large black patch on the (pink) carpet. I was so mad!!! Its mould. I have no idea how/or why its there, but I need to get a carpet cleaner in here, straight away - just in case, the folks that looked at the house, decide to come back! I'm secretly hoping they don't... I want Tiny to enjoy her room!!!


See the black patch by the left foot of the cot? Urgh. Look, look!! I've put Tiny's 100 good wishes quilt on the bed!!



PIPO, Chester the pink pig, is awaiting our Princess in the cot!

When I put the 100GWQ on her bed... I reckon I stood there staring at it for about 1/2 an hour, remembering all the beautiful wishes, each square came with. Thank you to everyone who sent squares - its such a precious gift. Miss M painted the "love" canvas, and H-Man painted the "hope" canvas (its a bit primitive ~ he was only about 4 when he painted it!!!) Miss M made the green/white banner - I painted her name! I love it.... I just hope they're the right characters for her name!!!

The toy room/store room!! Note: four Christmas presents, for four Christmas' we waited for our daughter.



Lastly... While I was doing her room, I pulled out some clothes I thought I'd take to China. I've decided the 6-12 months will (hopefully) be the best size. The Gym3oree clothes have actually childs measurements on the tags. I think they should be just right. I'm taking about 3 sets of clothes. 3 onesies (instead of singlets). And 3 sleepsuits/pjs. And one "spare" set of clothes to put in the baby bag, (just a bodysuit & leggins)... for those "blow out" emergencies!



(Yeah... I really like pink!!!)

Beautiful nursery!!!!

Love it all!!!! Just a suggestion, but you may want to include some tights in Tiny's suitcase. I couldn't get Kieren's skinny legs and feet to keep socks on! The "clothing police" were quite pleased with the tights! ;o)

Ava's family said...

Everything looks WONDERFUL!! I can't wait to see pics of your adorable little gal wearing all those outfits!

I love that you left the Christmas presents for her. Very sweet.

Wow, fantastic job on the room!!! It looks so cosy!
Naomi has a ton of pink clothes too - after having a boy and doing every shade of blue and green I couldn't wait for pink.

Oh I love her room and her quilt looks so amazing on that bed!! Makes me wish I had all my squishes so I could get my done, but I think I'm still about40-50 short darn it!

Janet said...

I love the four presents waiting for her. How sweet is that?

HOORAY! She's coming home to live in her own room! How exciting is that?

PIPO said...

Lovely! And may I freak ewe out now by saying we have the very same crib? I do believe mine is a shade darker but it is exactly the same style.

I KNEW you had good taste ;0)

The quilt is beautiful. I still haven't gotten to mine. Oye!

Catherine said...

It's so neat to see Tiny's nursery and the clothes that your baby girl will be wearing when she's in your arms!!

The quilt is wonderful!
