The baby’s arrived… Zoe’s nursery showcase…

It’s about time!

Finally I’m able to provide a tour of little Zoe’s nursery (she might be little, but her double chin is increasing in size daily, and the tops of her legs look like a stack of bagels!).

Nursery time – hot air balloon mobile…

A very dear friend of mine is having a baby in about a months time. They are having a boy; knowing that, I offered to make something to help decorate their little man’s nursery. A theme of hot air balloons had already been decide upon. This theme was prompted by the daily sighting of hot air balloons cruising over Melbourne at dawn they would view from their window.

Trying to decide what to make I saw these hot air balloons on Pinterest…

Heidi’s Nursery – an eclectic crafty heaven…

Heidi’s nursery (whilst temporary) is quickly filling with amazing hand made items, and gifts – making it feel more like home for her.

Knowing that we will be moving in a few months (when our new home is built), I didn’t spend a lot of time decorating her nursery…
a) because I will be packing it all up soon, and,
b) because we will be leaving the bright blue walls behind, and welcoming an entirely new wall colour in our new home (giving me more freedom with colours!).

In addition to what I have done, many other crafty people have contributed in their own unique way to making her nursery feel homely (many have crept out of the woodwork. The quilting fraternity is still alive and well – it seems to be the hidden talent of many!). And those that aren’t crafty (or just can’t find the time – fair enough!) have also provided simply adorable gifts for our little Heidi. This post is a pictorial display of the eclectic hand made items, and gorgeous designs that together make her temporary nursery a warm and welcoming home…

Robin Red Breast (seed pod) Mobile

I was at mum’s the other day, and on the book shelf were these little, coloured birds placed in an ornamental tree – on closer inspection I realised that these little birds were made from seed pods! Bernice then took over, and began demanding answers – who made those birds? Where did the seed pods come from? How did you know how to make them? What tree/vine are the seed pods from?

…I was really impressed!

I don’t mean to sound surprised by mum’s artistic talents… but she always says she doesn’t know where mine come from (and insists it is from her mother!), and continues to say that she isn’t creative at all – I don’t agree with her, mum shows her creativity in different ways to me, but I don’t bother to argue the point.
