Welcome Geoffrey!

It’s been really quiet here on my blog for 7 months or so, all because of a sweet little guy named Geoffrey who came to us right before Christmas last year.  He is such a gift, and we’ve all been enjoying him and his fun little baby personality.  But it has certainly made things like blogging fall way down on the priority list!

I have been doing more sewing lately, and hope to have some posts and pictures up soon of what I’ve been doing.  But my favorite thing I’ve done since I last posted is Geoffrey’s nursery.  You may notice I was inspired by my sister’s nursery – I changed the fabrics and animals, but did basically the same thing for Geoffrey’s room that I did for my nephew’s a few months earlier.  I’m so happy with how both of them turned out, and Geoffrey’s continues to bring a smile to my face everytime I walk in – even 7 months later!

This might be my favorite thing in his room – the name pennant.  I love how it frames the crib, and just how bright and cheerful it is!

I am also pleased with how the window treatments turned out:

These pillows are in the running for my other favorite thing about Geoffrey’s room.  We kept the double bed for our occasional guests, and I covered it in pillows so most of the time we can use it as a fun place to play and read stories.  The throw pillows really liven up the solid brown comforter, and add to the playful spirit of the room.

I’m pretty sure he likes his nursery!  🙂

  1. Congratulations (a little late for which I am sorry) on your cute little guy! He does have a fabulous nursery. I hope you all are doing well.

    • Thanks! I hope you guys are doing well! I might be pestering you for tips on raising boys since you are several years ahead of me. 🙂

  2. Remembering your Clara curtains! With those great appliques I bet you could easily move into quilting.

    • I had forgotten about those curtains! Good memory! 🙂 I just remember making a formal dress in a week the Clara lobby, with a borrowed sewing machine.
      I have actually started a quilt for Caroline’s big girl bed, but the joke is she will probably be 7 before its finished! I do enjoy the appliques though- its a fun way to add personality to things. Hope you are doing well!
