story's nursery

I'm too impatient to wait until the whole room is done to show pictures.
So here it is.
Story's nursery.
Definitely a labor of love.
Not to mention that I'm having contractions even now as I'm typing this...
I've been having contractions for the past five days.
Not. Fun.

Decorating this little nursery was heaps of fun, though.
(ya'all probably think I have babies just so I can decorate their rooms...and you'd probably be pretty close to the truth...okay, I'm kidding...kind of)

I really love the challenge of using what I have or what I can thrift.
The fabric for the crib skirt I made is also in the quilt, as is the fabric in one of the clouds.
The doily banner is strung on quilt binding I had laying around.
And the book mobile is made from the Responsive Readings of Scripture in an old 1930's Broadman Hymnal.

As soon as we named her Story, the idea came to me to make her a "book mobile".
  I ended up using embroidery hoops and wire hangers to fashion it, 
but it was a whole lot harder to make than I thought it would be-- a lot of trial and error.  
I really love how it turned out, though.

Of course, every girl named Story has to have a book collection.
And don't you know she'll be reading Pollyanna before she turns a year old.

Time to go dream now...

You give me hope that even with a lot of children there is still room for creativity. That book mobile is awesome. You should do a tutorial. You really outdid yourself my dear. I hope you don't mine, but I'm pinning it =)

I had no idea that Pollyanna was even a book! I always saw the film over and over again and missed that detail!!! Goodness. I love the mobile so much. Definitely so much you can do for Story with a lovely name like that.
