My cot for my girl


My Grandad made this cot for me when I was born. My sister and I both slept in here when we were babies, and now my own daughter will too. It's such a shame I don't have a photo of myself in here... it is very special to know we all slept in a cot especially handmade for me.

It's such a gorgeous cot, made from solid Jarrah. I love the details and it makes Eulalies room even more eclectic and whimsical which I love!

... I think these cute wall decals from mae really set it off!

  4. Yes, I am sneeking through your old posts and loving what I am finding. I cannot believe your grandad actually made this cot. It's so beautiful and must feel extra sleeping to put Eulalie to bed each night.

  5. I adore this cot and what makes it even better is the fact you also used it and it was hand made by your Grandad.
