It's all coming together and it's been so much fun. Starting with a blank canvas was a little overwhelming so I used Poet's quilt as a guide. I also reminded myself that just because the room was empty that didn't mean I had to fill it with things. It's almost finished...almost.
I've collected bits and pieces for their simplicity and beauty and together they have imbued the space with a sense of whimsy and calm. Hand-stitched vintage blue shoes, a bird painting by em, a bear of few words and the cute (and cheap!) rabbit night light make a sweet bedside vignette. The pillowcases are made from vintage linen, as is the bunting, both by hazyjane. Fliss sent Luna as a gift and those vintage books (Little Women, PollyAnna, Anne of Green Gables) look right at home on a thrifted bookshelf that I found years ago for a rather nice $6.
There is a little space next to the window, just above the bed head, that needed an artwork of some sort. I decided to frame my favourite photo from our first session with Tim. It represents such a beautiful time in our lives - full of expectation and love as we awaited Poet's arrival. No doubt there will be many nights that I talk to her about my belly, her birth, and the way she changed our lives, forever. And then she'll fall asleep under a ceiling decorated with heart garlands and a stars and moon mobile.
