Pink Palace #3 The baby book shelf~


So the story goes…

Mama shipped over too much stuff from the UK. Mama also bought too much stuff in SA before said stuff arrived from the UK..

The result after putting 5 boxes in the shed..

An over cluttered but organised and color coded space!

On the brighter sided I have a good excuse in my daughter who just loves it 🙂

My baby bookshelf..

Our kitchen window..

These flower pots were all found in UK charity shops, rabbit was a very expensive UK purchace, owl was a recent addition from a South African charity shop and the flowers from a UK charity shop. Mama Bird bounces and she is also from Twickenham. Her basket and hat have been taken from a porcelain doll that was given to my daughter. The green dish is for my curtain tie backs at night in case you were wondering.

I don’t wanna start drilling walls so the hand towel holder has ended up on the window, with Allegra’s fairy that she got from my brother from another mother’s cuzza on my birthday, bottles from Twickenham and the Lavender that my Mom put on out house warming cake ❤

This tree got a heart at the top, our trees don’t need angels, the angel is in my arms

I think this little gem may be her last present I wrap, after she has gone to sleep before I lay out milk and sugar cookie house for Santa, that brought tears to my eyes typing that, this child has wrapped herself so tightly around my heart

I got this after having Allegra Rose just as the shops started laying out the decorations. Since Allegra means Joy and I’d put the stars and angels on the tree I’d put Allegra where the star or angel should been
