Her Nook

Our apartment only has two bedrooms, which I suppose for most people would mean that their baby gets a room as a nursery. But, for a variety of reasons, we've decided that Evalie's space will be a wall in our master bedroom. It sounds like it's not much, but I think it's adequate! So, here's the details of her little "nursery":

A couple good views of the whole area. You can see that our master bedroom is MASSIVE, so I think it still feels spacious in there:

Her "bassinet" is by Arm's Reach cosleeper's. I chose it because it's super sturdy, and the bassinet part holds up to 35 lbs. Then, the top bassinet part comes and and it's like a pack n play that holds up to 50 lbs. So, there's a possibility we'll be able to go without a crib altogether! And, it wheels right next to the bed, with the side of it lowered to make mid-night breastfeeding a breeze - woo hoo!

A homemade apple hat (because I have eaten so many apples during pregnancy that she'll be MADE of them!) from Etsy shoppe "DebsAranKnits":

One of Evalie's first Christmas presents; a sheep piggy bank from Auntie Krystal:

More sheep from the Lambie collection at Bath and Body Works (my mom and I had stocked up on these years ago when I thought a lamb "theme" would be cute for a nursery...since then I've decided to have a more modern theme...but the lambs are still cute in there!):

Some of the wonderful books we received from all you awesome friends:

This wall vinyl was made by my friend Jodi from Scrapbooking Memories here in London. She whipped it out with her Sillouette in no time! Thank you Jodie!

To hang up her hats, I hung ribbon from strong sticky hooks on the side of her dresser. I found these ADORABLE and IRRESISTABLE mini pink glittered clothespins in the scrapbooking section at Michaels to clip the hats flippin cute! This bunny hat is from the Etsy shoppe "Saidonia":

My AWESOME nursing chair! This was a splurge for us, and we're SO HAPPY that we got it! This was pretty enough that we can incorporate it into our living room furniture one day - and it's sooooooo comfy. It's from a family owned American company called Little Castle. You can order them at

This gorgeous canvas is an original handpainted piece of art from my dear friend Tammy in Victoria - it's so incredible! Also, there's another amazing handmade quilt on this stack of blankets from my friend Jen in BC - I am totally touched by handmade gifts!

Muslin swaddling blankets - a MUST have for summer babes!

Evalie's BEAUTIFUL homemade quilt from her Auntie Lindsay - love love love this!!!

All her clothes are ready and waiting for her cute little body:

TFL all you auntie's- to-be!!!!

Love the space you have created for your precious baby: room for her to grow, close by to love and cuddle and keep her. Perfect!

Joanne said...

I think you have done a wonderful job of making her space cozy, warm and inviting. Also it is a great location close to mom and dad so she will feel safe and loved. Can't wait til she gets here <3
