Baby May’s room is finished! Took a day off yesterday to go and buy all the last stuff that I needed for her. Okay, preggy brains forgot a few things, like a microwave sterilizer, another 2 or 3 warm babygrows and an amber teething necklace, but as for the rest – all done 🙂
I had so much fun decorating and getting her room ready. I love fairies, and have been collecting fairies for such a long time, so to choose her room theme was not hard at all. . . and purple is my favourite colour, so that was easy too.
I bought the fairy decals at 3 different places, was so chuffed when I got them. The cot is the same cot we used for Jamie – it’s his grandfather’s cot and almost 70 years old. My dad restored it for Jamie’s room and we decided to use it again for the baby.
I designed this “poster” for her – it’s my heart’s wish for her and got this nice frame at Mr. Price Home. I also made the cot mobile for her – was such a labour of love.
I painted the pillow and my mom helped to sew it together. The duvet-set was a team effort by me and my mom – I found the material, cut it out and roughly stitched it, and my mom machine stitched it and added the finishing touches. The dolly is her first doll from her Aunty Mandels and the giraffe (and flowers next to the cupboard) was sent by a very thoughtful Jess.
Jamie also contributed to the room – he helped his daddy paint it, and he made this lovely pink butterfly and pom-pom art piece for her. He also painted her some more pictures which we put away for her.I hope she will enjoy her room as much as we enjoyed putting it together for her. May she spend many happy hours playing in her room and may this be her little sanctuary, her happy place. ❤
