Once upon a time...

...there was a little princess who lived in this room...I thought I would share a little bit of my home with you all. More specifically, my daughter's nursery. Since we are waiting out this insane South FL real estate market and still leasing, we couldn't go crazy with any wall color, which is sort of OK with me since I went for a sandy color anyway. I was so tired of the usual nursery themes so I sort of made up my own.

Our white rocker that we have spent countless hours in. Draping it is a beautiful patchwork quilt that my cousin handmade for us. She is an uber-talented artist!! PB screwed up the monogram on the pillow and I have been too lazy to take it back! ha! Possibly one day I will have time for this.
I put her crib quilt over the ottoman after I realized how incredibly impractical a white foot rest was. (I don't care, I still love it! Had to have white!) Her bedding is the pink cabana stripe mixed with light green polka dot sheets. And next to 'my' chair, is Mary Scott's tot rocker, which was also a special gift from her God mother.

Her sweet pink and white gingham chandelier.

Not sure if this picture translates very well, but I did a border of starfish and sand dollars lining the room.
And without further ado, the Queen Bee herself...(the baby, not me! lol)

Mary Scott and Mommy (I just noticed the lovely spit up all over me and my daughter. I contemplated taking this out but ultimately decided it just adds character! What is a day in the life of a mother without spit up?)

Last but certainly not least: the amazing view we are so lucky to have every day.
God is good.
