Emilie Ana's {Vintage Inspired} Nursery


 So beginning Forever ago I began putting this nursery together. I am glad to say that I am finally done! I really love anything Vintage and Antique so this the theme I went with for my last babies nursery. There are so many small heirlooms in here too...its so very romantic.  Girly, pink-cream-gray-dash of red, and all things frilly, lace and ruffle! 
Here it is...
I am in love with how it turned out.


My sweet cousin made these yarn pom poms..she used them to wrap this darling blanket she made...I recycled them and added them to this lamp!

Some old vintage books. The "Easy Steps in Sewing for big and little girls" is actually an antique...100 years old this year. It is quite the little enchanting book....I started reading it to my 5 yr old daughter, and both her and I were captured by its magic!

I used the burlap mermaid table runner for her dresser...

Pom Poms! I love how these turned out! 

The little dress was her LDS Blessing dress and headband.  I framed some "Ugly Duckling" silhouettes that my aunt custom made for me years ago. The tiny baby picture is and old one my Grandma had hanging up in her house in Denmark for years. She gifted it to me last year...it is a picture of Yours Truly ;-)

I found a place for the {E} button picture...Love it!
"Friends"

Also the Duvet Cover they are sitting on I made, to match the banner above her crib.
I reused this bumper from my first daughter. Added lace to the top to give it a new feel.


Painted antiqued and distressed shelf

The tiny Danish Little Mermaid vase was given to me on the day we arrived to Denmark in 1986. Again a gift from my Danish Grandma "Farmor".


My all time favorite flower "Hydrangea"....dried from this summers garden.
Antique Tapestry from an old Salt Lake City Victorian Avenues home. My mother rescued it from a sweet families garage...They were happy to let it go to someone who would display it...I LOVE IT! 

My old Danish Antique tin doll....and a new tiny pair of crocheted booties...for our Emmie Girl.

Im back! {and a holiday Peppermint Plate }

So I am looking at my last blog post...dated June of 2012....ummm...yeah....It has been a while!
TOO long in fact! But I have GOOD reason...

This is my reason....

SHE....
our
Emilie Ana
girl....






Can you see how I cant possibly get away from the Cuteness of this little thing to get my Craft on?! Lol. Things have been crazy busy in our house since the day she was born. She came on the day that my oldest started Kindergarten! Yes indeed, I let my husband take her to school while I was in labor. He made it back quickly enough to be there for the birth. And to add to the stress my in-laws left to Africa that week to be away for 18 months serving an LDS Mission. They were in the Mission Training Center just 2 hours away preparing to leave 3 days after E was born. And they were able to drive home to be there for the birth too, and quickly get back to their MTC obligations. We were so blessed to have them meet our sweet baby before they left!
Well, she is now 4 months old, I am feeling much better, we are into a routine AND the holidays are over, so now I can SNEAK away for just a few...and BLOG. I haven't been all idle though in these past 6 months or so. I just haven't had time to document everything. So I might have some "past" posts to reveal in the next few posts.

Here is one of them, this SUPER cool Peppermint plate that I saw on a cake display on line. I found the instructions here... on this blog Dukes & Dutchesses.  Whipped up a batch of Peppermint fudge..and voila! Its seriously so cool, and my kids LOVED to help me unwrap and place all the candies in the dish before placing it in the oven.  We kept it out all December. It was so easy...This is going to be a holiday tradition! 


So here goes to a New Year of blogging....thanks for sticking around!!
