Nursery Magic

You'll have to excuse the poor photo quality, it was late! :)

Mirror I found at Marshals

The origami mobile I made

My 'wall flowers' as I call them that a lot of craft-love went into

Each one was made from scraps of scrapbook paper (same paper I used for the mobile)

Wall letters I painted, drilled then strung together with floral wire (also left over from the mobile project)

Lamp and table were two more Marshals finds.

And when Jack outgrows his nursery and we convert it into a big boy room, this little yellow table will look great in my living room! :)

Big special thanks to Mr. C for putting up with all my 'little' craft projects, and for using his handy laser level to help me hang the wall flowers (at 11 o'clock at night!)
I couldn't help but put a little extra effort into this nursery since my initial decorating plans came to an abrupt halt after the car accident that led to baby Jack's miraculous but early arrival. The room will undoubtedly morph and change in the near future seeing as we are already short on storage in there, but in the mean time, it was important for me to create a beautiful, calming and magical room that reminds me of just how precious and lovely a baby is and how important it is to cherish those fleeting moments of childhood. And I also hope that maybe, just maybe, we'll be able to use this relatively gender neutral decor again someday (three to five years from now) :)
