My daughter Sean is pregnant and I am so very happy about that! We gave a wedding last June and now she and Chase are expecting a baby this June (or early July) – which is all pretty exciting! The baby will be joining my son Ryan and his wife, Nomi’s two children to make three grandchildren in all…..so far!!
Sean has just started to decorate the nursery in her Brooklyn apartment. It’s a small room off their bedroom, but it has a nice little window and it will be perfect for the baby! For the crib and decor she is choosing soft whites, and ivory shades with just a touch of blush accents, as she did at the wedding.
I saw in a Restoration Hardware catalog where they used framed photos of baby animals as wall decoration for a nursery. I decided to do my own watercolors of baby animals instead of using photos. With my children’s book background, I figured I could add my own little personalities to the baby animals with clothing added in pastel blush shades. So here they are!
BABY WHITE TIGER BABY FOX
BABY BUNNY BABY LAMB
BABY POLAR BEAR BABY GIRAFFE
BABY ELEPHANT BABY PIG
BABY RACCOON BABY DUCK
BABY FROG BABY OWL
Now I am heading to Michaels to get them framed with nice pastel mats and white frames. The idea is to hang them in a grouping with three on the top and three on the bottom. I will take a photo and add it to the blog when I get them back!
And here they are framed in the nursery – waiting for her to arrive!!
I can’t wait!!
