Sawyer is dressed in the new jammies I made for him!
I've always enjoyed making pajamas for them. Jammies are so easy and fun to make! And the little guys sure enjoy them!
His room is actually open; it is part of a hallway. We originally used it as a music room, but I've fixed it up for him~ for now. I haven't painted yet~just decorated with things I already had.
This is where we do most of our reading together.
I picked these little matching doilies up at the local antique mall in Donalds. I love the simple little dogs.
Here is his dresser. Dave refinished this piece shortly after we were first married. All our babies have used it.
This is one of the lampshades I recovered this summer.
I keep his "special" tiny books in this little make-do shelf. It is an old fruit box turned on it's side.
I found this set of guest towels at the antique mall as well. The sail and boat are hand appliqued with pin stitches. I love the '30s look in these towels.
Sweetie's bed is all ready for him. Mrs. Paula made the lovely pillow; I'm sure she never thought Sawyer would have confiscated it! It's just his size! Thank you Paula! I think of you every time I see it.
These "little boy" years will fly so quickly.
I made the shades this summer. When the top sash of the window is open, the ribbons are so pretty blowing in the breeze.
You can see my East Garden through his window.
When the ribbon is not tied up, it just hangs down. It just lays over the top of the wooden dowel.
So, what are little boys made of? They are made of dirt, hugs, bent nails, rocks, soft warm skin, uncombed hair, trucks, The Lone Ranger, dirty feet, pop-guns, green teddy bears, western six-shooters, Andy and Barney, and camouflage.
