My Scraps have hit the Nursery
I am hoping that you will not all think that I have totally lost the plot here!!
I am finally decorating my daughters nursery. The reason for the delay, well we had originally planned to move, so we left her room as it was as we thought it would sell better with the original decor .. however we have recently made the decision to stay where we are and extend, so I have been let loose to create a little girls room, rather than a cot shoved in the middle of a spare room!
At the end of last Year, i watched Kirsties Vintage home, and was inspired by an episode where she did a room for 2 girls http://scrapbook.channel4.com/bookmarkBar/509d1c59e4b0965919808b5e She created a tree from vintage wallpaper, and then put some shelves on it. However the thought crossed my mind, I could do something similar but use some of the many papers I have ..... but after my recent post mission impossible, I decided to do it entirely from my scraps, and the above is the result.
So 4 patchwork owls, 13 leaves and 108 flowers later ... you still cant see a dent in my scrap bag!! ... I was going to take another photo, however it could get repetative and boring, so I will maybe do one once a month! let me know what you think!
I should really have waited before putting photos on my blog as I still have loads to do, My husband will be putting shelves on the tree, I need to make curtains, and lots of other handcrafted things planned, so I will give you all a final tour when it is done, but I just couldnt wait to show you what I did with my scraps!!
I have to enter this into Pixie's Crafty snippits
Thanks for looking
