We, of course, are anxiously counting down the days until our mini-Dreamer’s arrival. But we’re not alone.
The wee one will be the first grandchild on both sides (we know, we know – we’ll never have to buy the bambino a Christmas gift ourselves!)… and all four grandparents are getting very excited to meet him/her.
Mrs. Dreamer’s Mom is channeling some of that anxious energy into the nursery. We’ve already mentioned what an accomplished artist she is – and you can check out her paintings here. We have several of her originals hanging throughout the Dream. Here are just a couple of examples:
Yes, a “Grandreama” original will hang in the nursery… more on that in a minute. But first, her artistic skills expand beyond the paintbrush and canvas… to the sewing machine. So, after several ill-fated attempts at making pillows, Mrs. Dreamer realized that DIY’ing the pillows might induce pre-term labor… so she called in the expert. And, boy oh boy are we glad she did! Check it out:
We don’t want the wee one climbing in/out of there just yet – so, for now, we’re utilizing the space as a bay window. We think these awesome gray, silver, white and yellow pillows are just what was needed to fill in that space. THANKS, MOM!
This one started life as a HUGE table cloth on clearance at Home Goods. We got enough fabric for this pillow and many more future projects. Since it’s a little “girly” we’re going to wait and see if we use the rest of the fabric in the nursery or elsewhere.
We are THRILLED with how all of these fantastic pillows came out… aren’t you?
Unfortunately, after careful consideration and consultation with the artist – there is just not a spot for them in this room. While they are adorable – they don’t match the overall theme. So, we’ve commissioned a different one – which is going to be AMAZING. We can’t wait to reveal it… soon!
