The changes in the "nursery" are going at a snail's pace. That is the speed at which most things are done here these days. I have nursery in quotes because the nursery kids are now between eight and fourteen years of age!
We have also shared the nursery with the linens all these years, since my nursery girls are only sometimes occupants of this tiny room, and it's a handy place to manage my linen collections in between times.
But I also seem to cultivate a great number of linens and laces here. So it almost seems that they are grown in this space the way plants do in a greenhouse nursery!
The ironing board is no longer a standing fixture in here at all times. (Sad face.) There is barely room for the four beds lining the walls. (One is a trundle.)
Less ironing goes on, and I am slowly changing things up to look less "baby" and more "lady," since the seven regular visitors are all girls.
We are doing less pink, and more white. And I am supposed to be clearing stuff out to get ready for new carpet. But every time I grab a box or basket to clear a closet or a corner, I get majorly distracted!
There are plain linens and fancy ones. Gorgeous antiques that need a mend or iron mixed up with the workhorse linens like those from Ikea, and even the paint department at Home Depot that are fresh from the wash. (Actually I got that all cotton drop cloth from Amazon. It's big enough to cover my sofa!)
Before I know it I've done nothing but play with linens for an hour. . . .
But it's a happy place. And worse things could happen.
This is a giant antique pillow sham that I got over last summer that needs a few stitches.
LOVE those buttons! (last year we went from summer to Christmas in two weeks! so no mending got done.)
And then I unfolded this FABULOUS crochet bedspread from last summer's jaunts too. I think it was something like forty dollars. It is heavy, and dreamy laid across a bed.
So what's a grown woman to do? I knew you would want to see too!
I guess I'll get back to my Saturday things now like I'm supposed to!
Happy weekend everybody!
