Tour Tuesday

I have been gone from blogging world for a little over a week (and missed it horribly). Our life quickly got CRAZY! Sam and I went out of town for a wedding and between work, school projects, and kiddos...there was no time for the computer. But, I'M BACK!


Eery project I am in right now is currently half done and I have not taken too many pics of sweet Jack and Sam lately so I was contemplating a post. I love to see other peoples houses on their blogs so decided to start a home tour. So every Tuesday I will post a new room in our home.

Starting with little Sammer's nursery. I wanted a very baby, vintage feel to his nursery and went with traditional blue, green, and white. My mom and I made all of the bedding and curtains. My friend Janet made the sheet for us and made the sweet little pillow for a gift. Every part of him was made with love. My husband hung the crown molding and painted the dresser (mine from childhood). He also painted the simple moon and stars staking a watch over Sam every night above his crib. The most amazing thing is that my mom redid a mobile with the fabrics we had used. It was a painstaking task....but I SO love it. Enjoy his sweet little oasis.

Please say a prayer for my precious niece, Ava. She is in the hospital with MRSA and is fighting this horrible infection. She is so full of life and I hope she has a quick recovery....I am sure she hates the hospital.

What a lovely and peaceful room. I am drawn to the name plaque(s) over the chair. I am sure your little snip will grow to love this room and all its special touches.

Awww...I love this room!! Probably because it looks so similar to my son's nursery!! The colors are white, blue and apple green! I'm going to post pictures of it soon...because the big boy room is coming. (Sniff.) I didn't think I'd come up with anything I love as much, but it's coming along in my head. :) This is beautiful.
