Though his room is not quite done as far as what i've pictured, but i think it's quite darling for now, and am proud of myself to have finished all projects on my "to craft for sergee's room" list. I am a big fan of toys that dont make alot of noise and encoursage kids to use their brains, as you can probably tell.
I cant say that behind that dove sheet closet door there are not many other toysies hiding, i just like to cycle things as to not bore the kiddos..
I would say the room is 70% thrift
20% mama crafted and 10% gifted/purchased new .
Not bad i'd say!
(stuffed animal tree: $2.00)
Martha stewart alphabet cards $9.99 at hobby lobby
baskets in which train set, puppets and legos hide: alley score!
red velvet blocks goodwill $6pair (splurge, i know)
Wall pockets I made with idea from Amanda Soule's newest book...
Name banner and fiber garland ideas, also attributed to Amanda Soule's aformentioned ingenious craft book.
Music, and dress-up...
though theres a heck of alot more where that comes from...(a giant tub in the hall)
Whiteboard/felt board hanging on wall:$2.99 thrift.
Baby blanket rag rug that i just got around to finishing after more than a year of having it tangled in a closet off and on...
Birdie mobile... in progress...
Vintage doll cradle, believe it or not, serge used to nap in this ocassionally...
Oh, my heart...
His quiet/fidget toys lined up on his windowsill for quiet time before bed.
Lacing beads, viewmaster, shape ball...
The quilt that is spread out was JP's when he was a wee one, his mama (gramma Bobbie) made it for him. Serge snuggles it like crazy.
Over his bed:Baby buddha pic that hung over his crib in our 'ol basement nursery, still hanging over his bed today. Along with a string of bay leaves for sweet dreams, and a catcher given to me years ago by a wonderful woman, Janice, a mentor of mine back in the dizzay.
To the right above the bed is a banner i made for his first b-day party. Baby animals flags cut from an old childrens book.
Yes, the dresser is my next project.
Star wars banana board on the left i splurged on $4.99 at goodwill. This is alot for me folks, but, it's an original.
Serge picked this bunny shelf out at the thrifty...$2.49 it put us back. Usually where he hangs his cape before bed:) Cuteness.
Pictures of Daddy as a little boy, and framed photos of Sergei's friends.
I am also in the process of filling a photo album for him of family and friends.
His Konica camera, so he can be like mama, 2 needle felted dog bones i made at his request while he was playing puppy one day...and his rolodex.
hey, this kids got friends.
Most of these creepy dolls i had already before serge came around, i kind of have a thing for creepy vintage dolls. Always have, always will.
