It's Home Tour Tuesday ya'll!! I love this! It's gives everyone an opportunity to take a peek into everyone's home that you may never get to meet in person, but feel like you've known for a lifetime in the blogosphere! Crazy huh?! Anywho, props to Daphne and Shannon for putting together such an awesome linky party!
Ok, so while uploading the pictures of Keller's room, I came across these pictures of when it was first coming together as we were waiting on her arrival! It was so much fun getting everything in order, but as soon as she came along all of the order changed for more efficient usage!
#1: IT'S CLEAN! =) (and the fenceboard frame still has pictures in it that came with the frame...) =/
Below is a picture my mom painted for Keller's nursery of (from l to r) George, GiGi and Fisher! These were Keller's first stufed animals that Tyler and I bought her! These 3 grew to have their own little personalities as Tyler and I geared up for Keller's arrival! George started the collection in December of 2008, a couple of short months after we found out we were having a baby!
And her bed! The small pillow was our ringbearers pillow in our wedding that my aunt made and monogrammed with a "W." For one of my baby showers, she also made Keller a pillow out of the same material with her initials!
Here it is now! The stuffed animal/toy laden room!
Ya'll I was 9 months preggo in June of 2009, outside in my driveway painting this bookshelf that used to be in my hubbys bedroom as a kid! The oak finish just didn't do it for me, so...green it was! I can't tell you how many neighbors came over to check on me in that period of about 3 hours! lol! The hubs was painting the living room at that time, and I wasn't too fond of the fumes, so I put myself to work! Everyone thought I was crazy, but I did it and it turned out great! This shelf houses toys, picture frames (that have yet to be filled..I know, bad mommy!), her jewelry box, etc..
Seriously, ya'll, this could be a bad thing! yes that dresser is FULL. I would show you the drawers with her shoes, but you'd laugh. It's just the top 2.. =)
We can't leave out the toys! =)
Chair, changing table (which is full of clothes as well..) and Hardy, of course! (see previous post)
I love original artwork! Have I told you that before??! The giraffe picture is Keller's growth chart painted by my mom! LOVE it!!! And above the light is a painting by Erin Fitzhugh Gregory that mom bought for Keller's room at one of the Fairhope art shows!
This is a poem my grandmother wrote for me when I was a little girl! A treasure!
