This is what happens when Ian is away at t-ball practice. I couldn't help but think of that part in Toy Story where Buzz says, "Don't you GET IT?!! I am MRS. NESBITT!!" I'm just impressed Lilly was feeding him a balanced meal: chicken and two vegetables!
Camera at the ready to photograph Nesbitt and friends, I decided it was a good idea to capture a glimpse of Lilly's room as it is right now, before she gets her "big girl" room. Want to see?
[Okay. Commence tour.]
This may be my favorite item in the room--a few of my great-grandmother's sewing patterns:
Need a place for the china you inherited? Stick it on a wall. This platter belongs with Mamaw's set:
Something I treasure dearly--Mamaw's knitted dishcloth directions, written in her own hand:
Handmade banner from my sweet friend, Lexi. May Lilly have such friends!
Silk curtains sewn by mom and me:
A.MAZ.ING. baby quilt made by my mom for Lilly, full of much Amy Butler deliciousness (mom's corners match perfectly!). By the way, placing a quilt on clipped rings and hanging it on a curtain rod is a beautiful way to decorate a large wall.
Shadowbox collection of sewing supplies that belonged to women on Nathan's side of the family. Names and their matching items are written on the back. (No, this isn't hanging crooked on my wall. Apparently I was in the mood to photograph at angles. Dizzy yet?):
Bedtime bag (thanks for the idea, Amanda Soule!):
Room documented? Check.
Big girl room, here we come. (gulp)
