Hi! How was your week? Things are hanging swell here on Post Road…. or at least the curtains in my nursery are!
Yup, as promised I managed to get something done on this lil project to share with you! These were oh-so-fun to make. Shabby and romantic and handmade…. really my vision of what I want this lil room to look like. Yet it must stay simple too cause the lil bun in the oven may be a boy (we are all about surprises).
I sewed the simple one panel shades from insulating and light blocking fabric. The curtains are made from an old tattered lace coverlet, chenille blanket, and vintage sheet.
Something about sewing by hand makes time stand still…. I need to do this more often!! Life is going by too fast lately. It feels so good to swing on my hammock under the apple tree and just let my mind wander and dream….
This lil table isn’t staying here but I needed something for now to catch my purty roses. Something about these roses remind me SO much of my darling baby daughter….. I MISS HER!!! It is so bittersweet to be decorating the nursery while I’m thinking of her and yet praying for a safe delivery of another lil one….
I’m hoping to finish the trim and closet for next week. Yes, we have only lived here for five years. (But who’s counting?!) Hopefully between chasing kids, pigs, chickens, and finishing up the new summer line we shall whack that up…. ah, what was that about time standing still??
