Sleepovers and playtime, this bedroom has become what the grandkids call
It is a mix of vintage, garage sale and whimsy.
A room where cousins sleep and little ones head to as soon as they arrive.
When Abbey outgrew the cradle by our bed, she moved to this room with both a door to the hallway and a door to the master bedroom. The crib was later exchanged for a toddler bed and a giant Barney poster hung on the wall.
A crib remained for many years as I provided child care in my home and grandbabies came along. A few years ago, the crib was changed to a queen size bed.
Now, it is where the bed from my parents vintage French Provincial bedroom set fits in best.
I can just imagine how happy it would make mommy knowing her great-grandchildren are snug and warm beneath the covers on her bed.
This full size bed allows for a little extra play space while entertaining doll babies and monkeys.
John’s Aunt Marie made the crochet lap blanket. It matches the Granny square pillow and crochet Rosie Wreath I had made.
How it warms my heart that my grandchildren play at the table and chairs I received from my aunt when I was three years old! The white chairs belonged to my now grown and married niece, Toni. The blue kitchen set was found at a garage sale and the white shelf in the background was made by my childhood best friend’s father and given to me when I was a kid.
Colorful bows on this happy clowder of cats, done in pen and ink, continue the pops of color against a white background.
Warm and cozy at night to help hesitant little ones feel secure at bedtime.
We will be watching two of our granddaughters for a week beginning February 1st.
Chloe (age 2 1/2) is “Super Excited”.
Cambrie (age 5) vacillates from “I think I am going to like this” to “I need my mommy”.
Sure hoping all I have planned keeps them both happy and not too homesick.
How cute is this sign! My sister gave it to me
