Show Us Where You Live Friday

Over at Kelly's Korner, she has been Show Us Where You Live Friday. It has been so much fun looking at all the homes! I have not joined in, mainly because I am still doing a little redecorating! I did think it would be fun to post some special things about Sophie Clare's room!







Let me start by saying, A PINK NURSERY IS WHAT I HAVE ALWAYS PRAYED FOR!!!!! God is so good!! I want to let you know that all of the art work is done by "my mother" She is so sweet to do anything I want. I come with an idea and she will get started on it! I am blessed!! This is on her door as you come into her room! There is no doubt knowing who this room belongs to! ha. Her room is made up of many colors and patterns which I love!!! I have never been a matchy kinda girl! The main colors in her room are pink, green and black! The patterns consist of polka dot, check, stripe, floral, and damisk.

I have several favorites in her room............I love her banner, this is what we hung on the door at the hospital! Now it hangs over her bed!
I had a hard time finding bedding that I loved and that did not cost a small fortune. I did not that I wanted to mix and match fabrics and add my on personal touches! I actually ordered the bedding from Sears for $150.00 The bumper pads were so paper thin. I decided to get Ms. Donna (Natalie's mother-n-law) to stuff them and add new ties to them! What a great job she did!!! I love them!! What is so funny about the ties..........I set there one night and tried to tie them but I just could not get them to look right........so Jamie gave it a try and don't they look awesome!!! The sheet that is on the bed now is one that my Aunt Janine made and it looks good with her bedding!

Her bow holder..........needless to say, I need another one! All of her bows will not fit! I am still searching .

The changing table is truly a very special gift!!! Jamie dad (Sophie Clare's paw paw Larry) that just recently passed away made this for her! He did such a great job! On the bottom of it he signed his name and put the date! Now she will always have a piece a furniture from him that she can hold dear to her heart! We love and miss him!!

Let's just say this chair has been around for a loooong time and it has a brother. My grandmother and grandaddy gave us the 2 chairs when we got married (almost 12 years ago) They had used them for a while and got tired of them so we got them! One was a dark tan and the other country blue, later I got them covered in a cream. I got so tired of these chairs, I put them in the spare bedroom and closed the door! When it came time for a rocking chair for her room..........WHY BUY ONE???? I picked out the fabric and carried them to Charley's in Boaz. He did the one in black/white check as you can see and the other in a deep red! He did such a great job!!!
I absolutely love my diaper holder!! My sis-n-law got it for me, she is so sweet. At first, I could not decide on how to hang it.........but one day I was in Hobby Lobby and came across this door knob. What better to hang it on??

Thank you for coming on the tour of Sophie Clare's room! I hope you all enjoyed yourselves!!
