Nursery Tour!

 I have been meaning to show y'all my sweet girl's nursery for ages, and am finally getting around to it. As in, I finally picked up all her books off the floor, and put away her clothes and boxes of diapers in a mad five minute sweep.  Blogger is being a bear, so just click on each picture to see it full size.

Anyway, I'm just mad about this cozy little space.  It was so fun to design a gender neutral nursery, then add lots of little Miss Priss touches as I got to know her.
Like a Pepto Bismal pink sign for her viewing pleasure doing diaper changes, along with a mirror for self-admiration.

I love the pictures depicting various fairy tales above her dresser.  They were in my nursery, but the mats were dusty rose (naturally, as I was born in 1981).  My aunt painted them, and they are both beautiful and slightly scary- very Grimm Brothers, indeed.  I was telling Mama about how they scared me as a child, but in a  good way.  She scoffed at my dramatic interpretation.  We both lost it, when my brother walked in after we hung the paintings, and immediately remarked, "Oh, you put those creepy pictures in here?"  Ha!  If Dell Harper starts acting nervous in her nursery, I will be able to pinpoint the culprit.

I love all the little mementos on the antique shelf in the corner of the room  A picture of my grandmother Samma, various baby gifts, and a lion and a lamb from a famous Seagrove, North Carolina potter.  The wooden pull toys and blocks were the centerpieces at my fabulous ATlanta shower.

A picture of me and Ovella, a couple of chickens by a local potter (those were stolen from my Mama), and a silver baby julep cup.

A comfy glider, and all the essential electronics- noise machine, monitor up on the shelf, and digital clock with iPod hookup, perfect for books on tape (for me) or lullabies (for Miss Priss).
For all you nursing mamas, a basket with water bottles is a must for easy reach of your glider.

I love to look around at all her little knick knacks and fun artwork, as I feed, or rock, or whisper sweet songs into her ear before nap time.  Although the cutest thing in that nursery just gets bigger every day.

Look at that thigh!  Could you not just die!

Well, I am about to fall out, so there will be more to follow, but I love all your blog recommendations!  Thank you so much, and keep them up!
