Nursery Art

May 21, 2014 at 5:47 AM 2 comments

I’m actually starting to believe that I will get this nursery pulled together in time.  We’ll call this the 12 week challenge.  Can I get it done while getting completely distracted by other projects around the house?  Dun Dun Dun.

One thing I believe to have checked off the list is art.  I had so much fun with Josie’s art and I love that she has a special keepsake – her map dress.

I made a purchase for the new baby’s “keepsake art” and I’m hoping it’ll turn out as cute as I imagine. 🙂  Through the fabulous Parker Kennedy, if you don’t follow them on Instagram, you really should, I purchased these three brass wall mounted bows…



As of now, my plan is to actually shadowbox them with a ticking stripe matting.  But, I haven’t received them yet so we’ll see how my “plan” goes down.  If it doesn’t work, I think I’ll frame silk hairbows, sort of like this…


Here are the other art pieces for the room – a Gray Malin ariel shot of a Chicago beach.


I love having this in the nursery because it’s where Graham and I first lived after we got married and Josie’s “map dress” is of Paris where we honeymooned.  The kids each have a little piece of their parents pre-babies adventures. 🙂

Finally, I have a print from Janet Hill – her pieces have the most fun sense of whimsy and they remind me of my favorite childhood book – Mrs. Rumphius by Barbara Cooney…


The nursery art is turning out to be a tad bit nautical, which is fitting with her glider…

So now, I have art and a glider.  Bit by bit, we’ll get there.

    Kate, Just an idea, but what about maybe putting one of Josie’s most favourite hair bows in the framing/shadow box and then add one of New Baby Sister later?? That way they are the “real deal” and will hold so many darling memories of both girls. . . I die for that map dress everytime I see it; I will WILL have one when I have a Grand daughter!!! xd

    Love those bows!! They will look awesome on the ticking stripe. And the beach photo is beautiful. What do you think of the glider? A good purchase.
