Anyway, here is a view of the nursery as you walk in the door:
As the theme is vintage circus, it of course meant that we needed a string of bunting flags. Gosh how I love bunting flags!
The ones below are made out of paper.
The flags with the Circus hot air balloons are actually made out of an
Italian wrapping paper.
Such a lovely, lovely paper and well worth the effort it took to find someone in Australia that stocked it.
The rest of the flags are just made out of your run-of-the-mill scrapbooking paper:
Next we have the feeding and reading nook.
and a woolen crocheted granny stripe blanket I made a while back for those cold, cold nights:
On the toy box next to the rocking chair there is a lamp and a copy of Mary Poppins, which I plan to read to our little baby in the weeks prior to their arrival:
Did you see those lovely Goki Wooden Mouse Skittles?
They are my gift to the baby:
ready to delight and amuse the little one:
and to the side is a vintage frame I painted, which houses a set of old crazy 8 cards I picked up on Etsy (yep, the cards are stuck directly to the wall):
Look at the detail in the frame. Lovely!:
Next up is the cot quilt. Warning: If you are a ‘real’ quilter, divert your eyes NOW as the following images may offend…. I’m not kidding. I am definitely NOT a quilter by any means and I don’t claim to be. I’m just creating a quilt for my baby, and taking the imperfections as they come!
The quilt is based off a drawing I did a while back and I think I will end up embroidering the baby’s name on it once we know it!
Next to the cot we have magoo sitting in his new shiny wagon that I picked up for $2 in a garage sale. A bit of spray paint and she’s looking as good as new!
This is the vintage wall art above him:
This time from a vintage book I picked up for $1 titled “In the Circus”:
And finally, the bit everyone has been waiting for I’m sure.
The mural I painted on the wall:
Isn’t he the cutest little thing with his party hat on!
*Phew* I am tired just showing you around! Surely I deserve the rest of the week off now! lol!
I hope you enjoyed the tour : )
