my little dorothy

I've been getting together Annabelle's Halloween Costume! Annabelle's going to be a mini Dorothy! I've always been a huge fan of the Wizard of Oz since I was a little girl, so I thought it would be fun to have Annabelle be Dorothy! I purchased the dress a couple of weeks ago at our local children's consignment store for only $6.50! Next up I'm going to get her basket with a stuffed Toto off of Amazon, and have been looking on etsy for some finishing touches! Here's a couple of my favorites:
Sweet Six-Petal Fabric Flower Hair Clip or Skinny Elastic Headband - Dorothy

Dorothy Blue gingham ruffle socks -child size  fits 6 to 18 months

need your help!!

 Here are the items we currently need your input on:

I personally LOVE this size coaster! Big enough to plop a sweaty glass on!
Would you like to see an assortment of these coasters in our etsy shop? 
We could do custom photos too!

the nursery

Here's a look at Annabelle's nursery. These were taken before she arrived! I had a list of projects I wanted to get done before she arrived. One of the larger, was redoing the window seat.

If you couldn't tell, the nursery theme is pink and green with elephants!
I made a cover for the long cushion and lots of pillow covers. I added the white sheer drapes with green ribbon as well. The room was already PINK when we moved in, so it worked out perfectly!

We got a comfy rocking chair with matching ottoman for our nursing sessions.
The bookcase ready to be filled up with books. My parents saved a big box of mine when I was little. Perfect to pass on to Annabelle.

The changing table nook. I hand painted the "A is for Annabelle" sign. That is now hung above the table.  The tissue poms I found on etsy. Found the wicker baskets at Michaels for 90% off! And you can't go wrong with a Vera Bradley diaper bag!

Just the start of her LARGE wardobe!!
(don't worry, everything was washed before Annabelle wore them)

I was lucky enough in my childhood bedroom to have a window seat my Dad and Grandpa made for me. I can see Annabelle reading and doing her homework here in the future!

We placed her crib in the center of the room. It really finishes the room perfectly! 

Hope you enjoyed a little tour of Annabelle's room! 
Have a great Wednesday!
