I follow Kelly's blog and every Friday is SHOW US WHERE YOU LIVE. Every week a different room in your house is picked and everyone posts pics. This week is nurseries so I thought that would be a great opportunity to give those of you who have never been over a chance to peek in to her "crib" (no pun intended) and see where our little miracle lays her head each night.
I actually just re-decorated and am still doing so. We had issues with furniture recalls so all new stuff had to be purchased....great excuse to go shopping!
(If you click on the picture it enlarges them)
The Holly Hobbie pics are actually framed quilt blocks....made in the 1940's
We all know where the custom Tessa & miracle wall expressions came from....Uppercase Living
Most of the books I read Tessa are ones that we collected while she was in the NICU. I read to her EVERY night. I usually get all teary eyed now when I read them.
That framed picture is Tessa's tiny hand gripping the tip of my finger. It really puts in to perspective how small she was.
This is the quilt shelf my dad made years ago and a vintage quilt I found that matched the room perfectly. The dresser is the only piece of "original" nursery furniture. I painted it white and added the vintage crystal knobs to match the other new pieces.
I hope you enjoyed your tour of Tessa's Crib. Oh...my little monkey has a bad case of thrush from the antibiotics she's been on since discharge. It's also caused a bit of hoarseness to her voice. It's so sweet and so sad at the same time. If I can figure out how to upload a video I'll try and post one.
