i knew i was not going to be putting the baby down the hall from the beginning, and i knew i wasn't going to spend a lot of money creating a space either. i luckily scored the mini cot/crib second hand, and it fit perfectly next to my new side of the bed. michael made the house shelf and i painted it. the doll and the little bird that matches her overlooking the crib were made by the lovely sara, and i have had them both since living back on maui (they represent a few of my favorite things). the vintage pillow case i picked up years back while in a antique shop near my parents cabin for fifty cents, it randomly floats around the house. oh and those special crochet sparrows were recently crafted by one of my dearest aussie friends who nearly melted when i told her where i put them. i did have the thick cable knit blanket made especially for this little one. it's organic cotton and bamboo and sort of perfect for melbourne evenings by the beach with a newborn.
i am enjoying coming up the stairs and seeing our simple little nest filled with familiar things,
it suits me.
