Wow! It´s been a looong time since the last post! It seems like an eternity for me because since then my whole life changed.
And here´s why:
This is Lucas who was born in january and kept us busy the last eight weeks. And although it´s been said thousands of times it is true that you can´t really imagine how a child changes your life till you have one yourself. It means so much more work, stress, worries, sleeplessness, sometimes even dispair, but on the other hand the joy and happiness you feel is so overwhelming and above all you experience a love that you didn´t even know before. It almost hurts. ...
It really was said so often and yet... I've never imagined that it would feel like this :-) ...
In the last weeks before his birth I was busy painting his nursery. I had a forest room in mind but I didn't know if it would work out. All I knew was that I wanted to paint it myself and not to use any wall decals. And I painted... and painted... and was happy because it worked out... but I got a little stressed, because it took so long and the estimated birth date came nearer and nearer. - But fortunetly my friend Maike was right: Babies wait to be born 'til their nursery is ready :-)
Here are some impressions of the baby's room. I'm really proud of the result and can't wait Lucas to move in there. At the moment he still sleeps in our bedroom (that's also the reason why you will be missing the crib in the nursery - it isn't set yet).
Now look ... here's a general view (click on the images to enlarge them if you like):
And now I wanna show you some details.
I'll start with some painted animals and plants ...
..and here is part of the decoration!
...granny's embroidered levelling board:
... a mushroom stool:
... a tree with two owls that were a showcase decoration in a fashion store before:
... some creatures :-)
... my selfmade felt garland:
... and last but not least, some of the lamps:
So...? What do you think? Do you like it as much as I do?
I still have some ideas to complete it... and of course I will show them to you when they're ready.
