Baby, Baby, Baby

Our family is expecting three, yes three, new additions of the baby kind in the next few months. In fact, one is on her way here this week! We are so excited! Since all of them live a couple of hours away from us, we decided to set up a little baby area in one of the guest bedrooms for overnight visits. Our bedrooms are small so it's a little tight but I think it turned out pretty nice. I tried to stay neutral since we will be having he's and she's. Nearly everything is thrifted or vintage or both.

Overall view.
The pull down wall map is an A. J. Nystrom from 1966.
I got it at a garage sale for $1 - no lie!
The other maps are vintage jigsaw puzzles.
The globe on the corner of the vanity is a Fisher Price.
It lights up so it should make a good night light.

The baby quilt came from a recent auction.
The mechanic rag will be great to lay on the sheet
 when changing diapers.
Don't you love the old skateboard underneath? I couldn't resist it!

The bag hanging from the corner of the bed is made out of
a vintage baby blanket. I put diapers and other necessities in it.
This is an old shoe shine stool stacked with children's books.
It is in the corner behind the rocker. I thought it would be fun
for the kids to go back there & look through books
 when they are old enough.


  1. great job. i love all the maps on the wall.

  2. I have always wanted a vintage pull-down map, well ,maybe not always but for a long time. Have fun with your visitors!

  3. Congrats on everything. The room looks fabulous, especially the maps. The top book, Ice-Cream Cone Coot is actually collectible and worth around $20 on Amazon but could be worth more depending on condition. :-)

  4. This is adorable! I've been wanting to find some maps like that. We thrift all the time too. Maybe one of these days we'll find some! :)
