Baby Glitter's Room || Home Corners


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

"I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date. No time to say, 'hello', goobye, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!" - White Rabbit, Alice In Wonderland.

Yep, that's how I feel. Try as I might to relax and not care, it really bugs me if I'm late with a promised blog post so huge apologies if you are one of those people who is bugged too. I feel your pain. 





So, back to the programme (so to speak). Last week we talked about a new Monday feature and I gave you a poll so that things would be a little more dynamic. As you can see from the right of the page, you voted in your thousands and 'Home Corners' pipped 'Baby Moment' to the post by 5%. What a close call!

If you are a viewer of my YouTube channel you'll kind of see that 'Home Corner' fits perfectly this week since on Sunday (my regular upload day), I posted a video of Baby Glitter's Nursery Tour. Whilst I was shooting this I took a couple of snaps to add to my blog (I could see which poll was in the lead and got ahead of the game *send clever points*) and so today, at last, I'm ready!


As you can see above, this is Darcy's room. Not a lot has changed since she was born and really, for a 2 year old it's kind of impractical. For her babyhood I filled it with (out of reach) trinkets an all things cutsie and chic but now as she develops and is more adept at climbing and reaching, it's time to swap the china ornaments and snowglobes for wooden puzzles and dress up clothes. I made my video because I knew viewers would be interested but also because I wanted to document the place my sweet baby spent her first months and so I wouldn't forget all the tiny details that are so dear to me. 

A few special things about her room that you might have spotted in the above video -

The 'D' on the door - bought at a craft fair when she was about 4 months old. 
The framed peachy coloured letter on her bookshelf - Written by my Mother to announce my own birth.
Paper hearts on the mirror - Stuck on by me when I made her heart and bells mobile so that the colour theme would tie through. 
The veil on the back of the wardrobe door - From my wedding.
The pink drawstring lacy bag - Made when I was pregnant. Not sure what I'm going to use it for but it's sweet and looks pretty. 
Rabbit snow globe on her dresser - Given by Matt's Auntie as a gift when Darcy was born.
China trinkets - Inherited from my mother. 
'Princess sleeps here' sign - A gift from my Auntie Judith. 
Frameless glasses on the bed - Sent to me for a PR thing but one of Darcy's favourite 'toys' haha. 
Carebears on her shelves - Gifts from Matt to me when we were dating.

I thought about telling you all the standard things but I figured you could work out where to buy a cot from or have seen a million videos and blog posts about changing stations and such. Darcy's room is special because it is full of history and sentiment and passed down love. 

As she grows and it becomes a more toddler friendly environment I'll still try to keep the special bits and the history because they mean so very much to me and hopefully will come to mean something to her too. 

In the comments, just for the cuteness, tell me the best thing about your favourite room and why it's so special to you. 

Toodlepip!

  1. In my tiddlywinks room I have names on the wall. When they were born I got some cardboard letters from hobby craft and decorated them with things that meant something to me and the baby, stars for my little boy, ponies and flowers for my little girl etc. They hand on pretty ribbon from the wall. Also I have a large vinyl sticker of a poem from Winnie the Pooh. It's something my mum always told me as a child so know it's a reminder for my children to. X

  3. When my baby girl was born, I bought a large wooden letter "M" and painted in pale pink. My husband and I then wrote words all over it in gold, with all the wishes we had for our little baby. It hangs above her changing table and still makes me smile every day

  9. We have moved houses four times since my toddler (only 3!) was born... and we are planning a big move again circa 2015 (my fiancé is from NZ and I am from Colombia, so we switch regularly between the 2)... so we don't really get super attached to places in our homes... which I did though, it would surely make such special memories!!!

  10. Aw Louise! This was such a cute post! :) I loved the video too! Her room is so so pretty (as are you and Darcy)! She's growing up into a lovely little girl! :) I've noticed (from watching your videos) that she's really grown up in the last few months! :) You must be so proud! :')

    My favourite part of my room would have to be the photo collage I've made of all my friends and family cause they all mean so much to me! :) You've made me want to do a post like this on my blog now... That means I'll have to tidy my room now (*cries into laptop* :P) It would mean a lot if you checked out my blog! :) I've done a post about how you, Zoe and Tanya inspired me to set up my own blog and it would really mean a lot if you were to check it out! :) ( http://secretlifeofniamh.blogspot.ie/2013/10/my-inspirations.html )

    I also CANNOT WAIT for you and Zoe's new collab series starting today! :) And if you do read this please tell Zoe that she made my day/week/month/year/life by retweeting my tweet this morning! :) I was having a bit of a poopy day and it really helped to cheer me up! :)

    I love you so much!

  41. I love my guest room I call the "Library". Along with my science fiction novels and history books, it also has my collection of children's books, my Winnie the Pooh and Tigger collection, the few extra-special stuffed animals I've kept through the years and a box full of memorabilia from my childhood. I love curling up on the small bed with a good read, warmed by the electric heater that looks like a little woodstove. My favorite cozy place. =)

  42. I love my bedroom and my little fire place that doesn't work, but looks cute and pretty. It's emerald coloured made from tiles and has a couple of roses on it :)

  54. Hi Louise :) I've only recently entered into the blogging stratosphere and discovered your blog after coming across your instagram account...just been reading through some of your older blog posts and noticed how much you have progressed and how your blog has evolved over the past months and years. Although I haven't dipped my toe into the blogging pool just yet, your account has inspired me to test the water, so thank you :) x

    ReplyDelete
  55. Her room is so darling! I love how all of these items have special meaning :) I'm sure she will appreciate it when she's older!
    When I was a baby, my nursery was Winnie the Pooh themed, and as I grew older it became my favorite thing - books, movies, stuffed animals, anything Pooh Bear! I had these four pictures on my wall of the different seasons that I still have today. I plan on taking them to college with me to remind me of home!

  95. What a pretty sparkly room of love! I hope when it comes to redecorating my baby peach's nursery I can come up with as many cutesy ideas. Shes currently residing in a farm yard scene (as we didn't know whether she'd be a Phoebe or Phoebo) so I can't wait to throw a can of glitter over it. xx
