A peek into the nursery...

Rosalind's room is perhaps my favorite in our home...and the one that I had the least hand in decorating.

Years ago, Poppy made the crib. Despite being used by almost a dozen children already, it's still beautiful. Nonny made the lovely quilt hanging above her bed-and it sets such a charming, little girl tone for the whole room. Even the matching material for the baby bumpers was a gift.

Her toys are all stored in the basket at the end of her bed. On the other side of the room sits her beanbag (from Grandma) just perfect for reading to her dolly (or being read to, of course). The rest of the room is clear for playing in... except when I need a bit of room to scrapbook, iron or fold laundry.

Above the reading corner hangs a beautiful, perfectly real-to-life drawing of Rosalind's little feet cradled in Joshua and my hands from Amber. Dried baby roses, a willow tree figurine and her sweet "princess dresses" add the finishing feminine flare.

So here, at long last, is a peek into the Rosebud's room.

How sweet! It looks so cute, Anna. Now I can picture Rosalie in her own room. Thanks for posting lots of pictures. Give Rosalie a kiss for me.

We've been ooing and aaing over adorable "Ro-Ro" and her darling room! What a feminine place in which she can grow up! What a little dolly sitting with her little dolly :).

A hug and kiss to her from all of us,

Grandma and Aunts Lydia, Bekka, and Kathryn
