Tara's nursery

By the end of this week, Tara's nursery is going to be all packed away so I wanted to give a tour. I put so much of time, energy and love into her room; it's full of personal touches and I am so sad to take it all apart. Here goes...

I bought plain wooden letters from the craft store and decoupaged them with decorative papers to spell her name. I painted the piece over her crib...it reads  "Tara look inside yourSELF, you are Always Protected"

                                                             (close-up of painting)

I hand painted the tree on the wall-it was actually pretty easy. I used a light green for the base wall color and then used masking tape to outline the tree. I filled in the tree shape with a darker green color and...all done!

 This dollhouse bookshelf is so adorable! I bought it from the craft store and hand painted it...

 ...a faux brick finish and shutters.


Our special reading corner...


Tara's book and toy shelf... (okay, things are never this neat in here!)

I hand painted these flowers on a small cupboard...sorry not a very good pic. I hope that one day Tara will use it for her little girl.

A friend of mine from Canada (thanks Susie!!) handmade this quilt especially for Tara...isn't it beautiful?

All these were special gifts for Tara...

 Her little kitchen where she loves loves loves playing in! I must admit, though...I love playing here even more!!


I made this scrapbook layout for her door...
I had so much fun planning all the little details in her room...Thanks so much for looking!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
We had a really relaxing weekend...lots of tomato soup, rest and TLC. Tim spent tons of time with Tara so mommy got a break.   I am on the mend, thank goodness...we have a hectic month ahead full of sorting, packing and moving. Things are about to get super busy over here!

So glad you are on the mend Soraya. I loved the nursery tour! So many delightful personal touches. I can understand that you are feeling sad taking it all down..... but Tara is growing up and the next bedroom will reflect that. I LOVE the little kitchen. She will have many more playful hours pottering in her kitchen I'm sure. The painting you've done is sooooo beautiful!

Thinking of you as you pack and re-locate.

I want that room for myself! This brought tears to my eyes ... the overwhelming sense of love and care that went into every detail ... Tara will treasure these memories and the new ones you will create in her next room. (Care to make a visit to my house and help me with my daughter's room?)

And I had forgotten we have a similar quilt packed away for the summer that I need to pull out :)

One of the projects I did with my Cowgirl when she was older was have her decorate a wooden letter to hang in her room. It is so cute! She also has a collage piece she made. I can only imagine what masterpieces Tara will create given the inspiration of your work.

Loved all of this. I can see why it would be hard to say goodbye ...
