And the Elephants Came Marching In..


We wanted to create a simple nursery that was a mix of modern and  traditional elements. 

We used some flea market finds,  a few DIY elements and some elbow grease !

I think that your elephant mobile and that crocheted puppy wrapped in a blanket are so cute! That quote from The Beatles is a winner, too!
