I had done our Mary's nursery in pink and brown.
While still in Argentina I began to think how I wanted to do baby Abigail's nursery. I decided that I wanted to take out the brown and add a light gray to her nursery. But, I didn't want to spend hardly any money. Jesus has helped me put together a fun nursery that I'm thrilled with for just a little bit of cash. =)
~Years ago one of my friends gave me this pretty gold mirror.
In thinking about Abigail's nursery I decided that I wanted to spray paint that mirror pink to hang above her crib. I L.O.V.E. how it turned out. See pics on down in my post for the cute results. =) ~
So, right before I checked out at Once upon a Child I happened to see this gliding rocker. It was marked $35.00 and since I had a 20% off coupon, I got it for $28.00! =)
But, the cushions were a sunshine yellow.
My next stop was Goodwill...where I found a Pottery Barn Kids' pink flat sheet for $3.00, and this gray pillow for $1.00.
As soon as I saw the pink bed sheet I knew that it was going to help me cover the yellow cushions on my "new to me" glider rocker. =) ~
(Her new born pic is now in that empty pink frame sitting on her antique baby scales someone gave me. =)~
The pink blanket came from my Moma (Gram) for Mary, and the gray and white blanket came from Meijers.
My sweet Moma had made the pink bed ruffle for Mary.~
I love this old pink and white metal can of talc powder that someone gave me.~
All Mothers that have to be up at 3:00 A.M. can agree with me, that one NEEDS something comfortable to sit and rock their baby in. Something one can lean their head back onto and "rest." So...I THANK JESUS for giving me this rocker. I LOVE it...it's so comfortable!!~
The baby book I bought for Abigail had a spot of glue on the ribbon on the front which told me that something must have fallen off the front of this baby book.
That didn't stop me from buying it, for I knew I could glue these 3 neat buttons on the front, which is what I came home and did. =)~
So saying the above...The window in Abigail's nursery still doesn't have framing around it yet...but that didn't stop me from decorating it. =)
I just set up some white window shutters that I got at Goodwill, and this FUN sign that says, "It's a Girl" that I got 40% off at Hobby Lobby.
I love the pinks, whites, and grays in this sign.~
I had purchased this sign last time we were here, for $3.00 at The Christmas Tree shops. I added the sweet pink and white stripped ribbon with which to hang it.~
I already had the frame which was just a ply wood type wood...so I got out my pink spray paint and painted it. =D ~
It looks so cute sitting beside my pink glider rocker.
Abigail won't remember her nursery...but it surely is a FUN place for her Mommy to enjoy these few months before we go back to Argentina.
It makes my heart smile! =) ~
