The Great Nursery Tour 2012

When I began to plan out the nursery tour post, I initially thought of photographs- lots and lots of images to showcase the work that's been put into our baby's room. But then the wheels started turning and I asked myself why I would do anything the easy way. After all, this was a classic opportunity to make things REALLY FREAKING COMPLICATED. So I decided to toss a video tour in for all of you too (despite the fact that working with iMovie is clearly not my strong suit), because you don't get the full effect of the room from the pictures. So here is the long-awaited nursery tour. I hope you all enjoy taking a peek into our home!
Old-fashioned Bedding
Sewing Cards and Fabric Flowers
Vintage Toys
Vintage Blocks on a Refurbished Rug
Sewing Cards
Crib View
As a side note, I do realize that the video ends pretty abruptly but I would like to blame that on the fact that my iPhone keeps running out of memory to record new videos. That may or may not be related to the fact that I seem to be incapable of deleting old videos out of it's memory like Nathaniel's first steps or tummy time when Evie was still a teeny, tiny baby. At any rate, we hope you enjoyed a peek into our house. Stay tuned for more house-related goodness. Next up... the family living space turned master bedroom!


  1. AMAZING room!!! Evie is a lucky little girl to call it home!! Way to go mama!

  2. Have you considered contacting the poster print shop? They are in Sweden so they might be able to get you a copy more easily than google...I usually can come up with some obscure reference that will get me to a book that would contain it but oddly enough, my research skills have failed me this time. Sorry, I tried.

    1. Thanks for trying, Katie! I was surprised that I couldn't find anything online about it either. It also doesn't help that I don't read Swedish! I never thought about contacting the print shop though... I will have to try that! Thanks for the idea!

  3. Well here's the original at least,

    Äppel, päppel, pirum, parum.
    Kråkan satt på tallekvist.
    Hon sa ett, hon sa tu,
    ute ska du vara nu!

  4. Thanks Dendera! Now to find someone that speaks Swedish...

  5. It's beautiful! I love all the little touches and how vintage the room looks.

    I google translated the above rhyme and this is what I got: Malic, Pappel, pirum, parum.
    The crow was sitting on the pine bough.
    She said one, she said tu,
    out there, you should be now!

    Don't know how accurate it is ???

  6. Gorgeous nursery. You did such a great job, I love it all!

  7. What is the paint color that you used? So pretty!

    1. Thanks Janelle! It's Sea Song from the Disney Behr line. I have to say... I love that color!
