Dear Violet's Nursery Update....


Once again, here in Oklahoma ......it is snowing and I am busy with the mommie-to-be.... finishing her list of nursery to do's!
We put together a shadow box with the sweetest vintage deer figurine.  


We also created a wall pocket for dolls.  We used an old wall mirror, torn dresser scarf and some vintage looking scrapbook paper.  Once finished I surprised SK with a set of dolls she had when she was a baby.  See photo of the little cupcake herself with the lamb.


I bought the precious set of lambs when SK was just an infant.
"24 years ago"  I remember thinking I have to have these, but the price was way over my budget...$50.00.  Handmade and so perfect I  placed them in layaway.  She loved the little girl lamb so she was chosen to be in the above photo.  Who would have thought that now a mommie-to-be herself she would still gravitate towards lambs for her own baby girls nursery.  Note the 4 or 5 lambs  in the crib now. Needless to say she was speechless when I surprised her with them last night.  She couldn't believe her daddy and I had kept them for her all these years.

I found this sweet vintage deer figurine months ago.....could not wait to put together something special for the nursery.  Scrabble pieces spell out "Dear Violet"  and in the upper right hand corner of the  scrapbook paper background it says.....sweet dreams, laughter, sunrises and memories.....


A view from over the changing table......such sweet surroundings await my "Dear Violet".

Snowy days and Nursery Projects


After leaving work on Monday evening....I drove straight to Mommie-to-be's house.  
With the impending snow storm of the century and my first granddaughter due any day I decided to stay with her and my son-n-law. (just in case) 
She had several projects lined up and the the lamp shade above was just one of many she had on her list.
She knew what she had in mind and where she wanted it....was all to happy to help make that happen.
Check out her blog at : Littlecuppiecakes.blogspot.com for more photos of her darling baby girls nursery.
