Most people aspire to finish a baby's nursery sometime before the Big Day. Bea's (mostly) finished room was (sort of) a first birthday present.
One of my favorite special touches is this set of framed bees, above her crib. I bought several hand-inked, stamped gift tags from The Perfect Loop, at the Etsy shop for their paper. (They also create beautiful jewelry.) ...Less than $5... I borrowed some 3D stickers from one of Ingrid's craft kits and stuck the little buzzers to scrap book paper I got from Michaels... about $2. It doesn't come through in the pics, but the paper is embossed with little polka dots, which compliment the dots on her crib bumper, not pictured. Stuck those puppies into a few 2.5'' square Ribba frames... $4 ea., and BAM:
There are some other sweet little touches *coughFINALLYcough* coming together in Bea's room, too: curtains for the French doors, dandelion wall decals and I'm almost ready to repaint and sew cushions for a cute little set of wicker chairs w/ table, that my folks found at a yard sale. Sweet. Maybe I'll finish the room before she outgrows the crib?
