Well, what to do with the darling dress after it has been worn? Frame it! So I took some leftover material from her glorious bedding and wrapped it around some cardboard, layed the dress gently on top, covered with glass, and OUILA!!! The cutest thing in the world, hanging on my daughter's wall.
I also painted the frame in a mint green that matches the bedding and such.
The bedding was also made by Iddy. I have an antique iron double bed in her room, for her to use after the cribdays are over, Iddy made the bedskirt and pillows to match the crib bedding. When Tess is done with her crib, I don't have to change the entire room, just take out the crib, stick in a dresser. A big girl room is born.
Her room is cuter in person than it photographs. But I was very proud of my creativity and wanted to show off.
Isn't it just darling?
And here is her crib. Please take note of all the millions of things this little toot sleeps with. Seriously, the SIDS foundation would not be happy with us. At all. Two stuffed animals, a baby doll, three lovies, and a blanket. Every night. She isn't particular about which stuffed animal or lovey it is, just the amount seems to make a difference. But a baby doll always needs to be with her.
I've created a monster.
