Sadie June's Nursery

Being that our little June Bug is approaching her 1 month birthday, I figured it was time to share some photos of her beautiful nursery.

I have to admit, I struggled in coming up with a nursery design for another little girl.  We poured out tons of creativity into Lara's room, and then moved into our home which we have totally gutted and honestly, our creative tanks were a bit dry.

However in the end, the space turned out better than I could've dreamed up.  It's meaningful, authentic and totally cozy.  I'm just crazy about how it all came together!

Jon put the wall up, which is made of pine boards. He cut, stained and nailed each board into the wall....bless his heart.  I'm the visionary, he's the "do-er."  
Thank the good Lord the man has patience.  

I wanted a vintage, rustic yet chic look, and this wall really does bring it all together.  

And can we talk about the pale pink crib up against it.... #swoon.

In the beginning, the only thing I could decide on was that I wanted it to be totally different than Lara's bright, fun, mermaid oasis.  I didn't have an overall vision until my Mom and I went to pick out quilting fabric.  We stumbled upon a beautiful, floral quilt with frayed roses and I absolutely fell in love with the look.  

If I had any sort of vision in my mind, this was it.  My Mom was confident she could create the quilt I had fallen in love with, so we spent the morning picking out different tones of floral fabric.  To contrast but play well with the floral, we chose some fun, muted polka dot prints to mix in.  

This quilt has so much love poured into it, which makes it even that much more beautiful.

 Pale pink Teddy Bears, compliments of Grandma.

I used the leftover fabric from the quilt to create the background for these frames.  

Jon and I both chose song lyrics that were meaningful to us; his being "Daddy's Hands" by Holly Dunn.  He sings it to Sadie all the time and it melts my heart everytime I hear him singing it...

 I chose Lauren Daigle's, "Trust in You."  As some close to me know, I struggled with Post Partum Anxiety after having Lara and it became progressively worse as I embarked on my pregnancy with Sadie. It's still a daily struggle, but as I continue to grow stronger in my relationship with God, I'm learning to find a peace I haven't had for years.

This song was my anthem in the early months of my pregnancy and the lyrics will always remain near and dear to my heart.  

The section of the song I chose to frame is below:
You are my strength and comfort

You are my steady hand
You are my firm foundation
The Rock on which I stand
Your ways are always higher

Your plans are always good
There’s not a place where I’ll go
You’ve not already stood

When You don’t move the mountains
I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust
I will trust in You

These frames are one of my favorite parts of Sadie's nursery. They hang above her changing pad, which is where we obviously spend quite a bit of time. #obviously

A gorgeous book from one of Sadie's beautiful, Tridelta Aunts.
Love you, Auntie Kari!

This was purchased from a local craft fair, before we knew what we were having.  It's a very delicate piece, carved out of wood and I just love it.

This is the snow globe Jon gave me while in labor with our Sadie.

Handmade by Mommy, with lots of love....and lots of hot glue.

I found this little pony in an antique store, the day we bought all the fabric for the quilt.  I just love the vintage look however I also love that it add's a touch of big sis' personality to her room. 

More vintage detailing.
For those curious, I believe the furniture is all made by Ashley.

And last, but most definitely not least, this display is very near and dear to my heart. My dad picked out this little pink dress for me to come home from the hospital in.  Being that Grandpa is no longer with us, it's a tiny piece of him that I've been able to share with my girls.

All three of us have now come home from the hospital in this dress and for that, it deserved it's very own spot on Sadie's wall.

Mommy -- Sadie -- Lara

Lots of love in this room and lots of love to all of you.

Happy New Year, friends!
