Momfessional Tuesday!

I am not sure how I came across these posts, but I decided to tag on.....I will probably miss a few, but I know I will look on them and be glad I put it all down in writing.

Carrie and Rebekah...are you with me???

March 3 - Show us your favorite room in your house

Well, right now my favorite room is Emma's room.  We recently made some changes (removed the crib, added a big girl bed...) and I love it.  It's so cozy, and makes me want to be a little girl again.

It is filled with so many things that hold special meaning to me, and I love that.  It's not perfect, but it's Emma's and I know she loves it.

I did a post on Emma's room when she was a newborn here.

Please excuse the poor photography, clutter, and non-HGTV quality of my decor:)

This is the view walking into Emma's room.  The quilt is from L.L.Bean, and the sheets (which you can't see) are pink gingham from Pottery Barn kids.  We got the rug when Emma was an infant at Capel Rugs in Raleigh.

Brent made the changing table/bureau...BUT it's not done yet.  We still have drawer pulls to add and a different color of paint (we couldn't decide...but I think we will go with a grey-green pastel).  I am incredibly thankful to Brent for making this for Emma....a lot of sweet memories will be made:)

I also love not having the top as a changing table anymore!  The lamp and picture frame are from At Home...if you haven't been there, you need to go!  There is one in Raleigh and a new one by South Square in Durham.

My sister-in-law gave us the bed, and I believe it is from Pottery Barn.  There are also drawers that go underneath for storage, we just haven't added those yet.

I bought Emma this small green chair from Target when she was less than 1 (and blogged about it here).  It was on clearance, and I LOVED it.  She doesn't sit in it much, but she may one day.  The small bookcase was actually a piece in my grandparents house that we re-finished and painted yellow.  I LOVE the way it turned out.  Emma uses it often, as her books are some of her most favorite toys.

 (Please ignore the hanger silhouette on the wall...that is where I used to hang her clothes for the next day and for some reason, it made a mark...I just need to do some painting!)

This is her alphabet wall...minus a few letters!  The K, R, and Z are waiting to be put back up again:)  The wagon was mine as a child, and my dad made it.  I remember riding in it down the hill in front of our house with him:)  

The pastel stocking on the doorknob was knitted by my grandmother and has my name written on it.  I am not sure what the occasion was, but it looks very spring-like to me.

So, there you have it!  My favorite (currently) room in our house!
