Baby, Baby

In the last six weeks, we have been blessed with two beautiful granddaughters. The girls are not twins, but cousins--Evie and Vivi. I thought you might enjoy seeing each of their respective sugar-and-spice nurseries. Although the mothers both chose the classic pink and white color scheme, their individuality shows up in the details.

Here is Evie's room.  She was due first, but arrived 48 hours after her cousin.
Daddy, sister, and brother inspect the nursery.
Both families chose classic names with up-to-the-minute shortened versions. Evie's full name is Mary Evelyn. Don't you love it? Mary is a family name on both sides, but she is particularly named for her maternal great grandmother.

Evie's mama found the darling letters on Etsy.
The two windows in the room are draped in pink linen panels with pleated off-white detailing. They were made by Pat Martin of Going Home Interiors. The quilt, crib bumpers, and the bedding are from Pottery Barn.  The wicker night stand belonged to Evie's mama when she was a girl.
 The other window is to the right of the crib. 
Here is sweet, tiny Evie sleeping peacefully in her bed. 
Newborns sleep through anything--especially third-borns!
The other granddaughter, Vivi, also has a pink and white room. Just like her cousin, she has two siblings.
The photographs with the watermarks were taken by Anne Canon Photography, a superlative family photographer from Kansas City.
However, unlike Evie who has a brother and an older sister, Vivi has two brothers. From the looks of things, her life will be a little more rambunctious than Evie's.

After decorating two little boy's rooms, Vivi's mama designed Vivi's nursery to be as feminine as possible.

The candy-striped rug from Pottery Barn sets the color-scheme for the room. And the Kensington mini-chandelier, purchased through Joss & Main, guarantees the room's glow by day and night.  

Vivi's window is draped in the reverse of Evie's, having white panels and pink under-shade. The linen smocked panels are from Horchow, while the Roman shade under drape was constructed by Pat Martin of Going Home Interiors. The wicker rocker and christening gown came from Mission Road Antiques.
The shadow box was purchased at Michaels.
Across the room, some generational baby clothes are on display under Vivi's name.

Vivian shares her middle name with her Gigi and her Aunt Anna. 
Pen and ink drawings from Etsy hang atop the changing table.

And, just like her cousin, Vivi sleeps like a princess her new room.

The Lord gave our family two sleeping beauties in two days. I'd say we are doubly blessed, wouldn't you?
