Let me just start off by saying that I'm in no way showing you my completed "project" (term used loosely) because I think I did a bang up job. In fact, this particular "project" really is better viewed from a distance, with eyes slightly squinted. I did however intend to show you the finished product...so here it is, flaws and all. As you may remember, and can see in my prior post, I wanted to try and somewhat mimic the very cute heart in Home Companion (as seen below). I would say that mine is more of a distant relative (think 3rd cousin twice removed) to the one below. In fact, these cousins have never met, and if they did - say there was some sort of stripy heart family reunion, mine would be the one sitting alone, all the other attractive hearts avoiding eye contact, not wanting to admit they're related. So, as I mentioned, stand back and sort of squint at it. I didn't have any pink ribbon on hand, nor did I have spare Scrabble letters to attach to the heart, lovingly spelling out my child's name. But...I do have one of my grandma's vintage earrings. It is just clasped onto the heart, easily removed for wearing when I need it.
I thought I would also throw in a few pictures of Evy's room while I'm at it. All of the white furniture is from Target - the Simply Shabby Chic line. I really like it a lot and the quality is great.
The wall hanging is a vintage one that my mom got for Evy.
The little Snow White is from my mom. Evy still talks about how it was hiding in my mom's slipper when she gave it to her. The animals in the box are finger puppets from Evy's brother Alex (or Howie as Evy calls him - and we all do too now). The little Angelina Ballerina figure is a gift from Alex's beautiful girlfriend Mary (or Mia as Evy calls her).
The "project" again
A bit blurred, but this is Evy's favorite doll, Sophie - couldn't leave her out. She loves her so much. And look at that bed and the bedding - it's just too cute (the doll and bed are from Pottery Barn Kids).
This little chair was made for me when I was very little by the husband and wife who watched me during the day while my mom was at work. Isn't it sweet. I love it and I'm so happy to have him.
That momma bunny and baby bunny are made from a bed spread that my grandma had. She had a couple of bedspreads that she had bunnies made from. I have a white chenille set as well. My Mom also has a set like the ones in this picture. The little hat box holds Sophie the doll's clothes - what doll shouldn't have a hat box full of clothes. And while we're at it, Evy has a monkey (Maggie) that has a trunk full of clothes (courtesy of my mom at Christmas - the monkey and the clothes). Have a wonderful day!!
