A Project For
A little yellow vintage couch.
The yellow velvet couch was a thrift store find. The vanity and cabinet are thrift store finds which were repainted. The shadow boxes over the crib contain my mother's baby items which were hand-made by her mother - a kimono baby wrap and pram blanket. One of the boxes also has my mother's first pair of satin baby booties. The Northern toilet paper prints were passed down from a family member who had them in her room when she was a baby. The curtains and crib linens were made by myself and my sister. The white satin blanket on the crib was hand-embroidered by my sister-in-law. We painted the walls blue to the room wasn't overly girly. I only wish the woodwork could have been painted, but due to the age of our home, we felt it best to leave it in the original state.
My mom's (Baby S's grandmother) baby items and the hand-embroidered blanket. So much love and attention went into her blanket making it a beautiful keepsake. I love being able to incorporate these important mementos into her room.
