Nursery Changes & Juju hat update

 First of all, I want to THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH for your overwhelming support and heart-warming comments regarding our citizenship! Truly, one of the best gifts of becoming a citizen is to call you all my sisters and brothers! Thank you!

I'm busy again planning for a party/gathering at our house this Saturday to celebrate this milestone, so forgive me for missing out on some of your posts. I will try to catch up next week when things slow down a bit in our household! ;-)

For now, let me just share with you some minor changes we have made in Sophia's Nursery recently..

Juju Hat out - Mirror  ( from Horchow) in!
You probably remember that last Christmas we made a switcheroo and moved the sofa bed on this wall and the crib on the other. I often sleep with Sophia so this arrangement makes more sense for the time being.

I absolutely adore the Martha Stewart WHIM line at Macy's. And I think most of my sheets for Sophia's Sofa bed is from this line, just like the dotted sheet now!  I got the typography pillow case from Target's current Pillowfort line which I absolutely love! The green dotted pillowcases were Thrift scores years ago, also from Target. 

Had to move the rocker here because of the trundle bed now on the other side

Crib by the LOCKED Window is just so pretty
Since Sophia's a toddler already, she has all her play things all over the house and of course, in the nursery too!

Got the Cardboard stand and table set from IKEA
Right now, this play stand is her "TEA SHOP" with cakes and cups for us. 
And as soon as she enters her room, she goes straight to her "Tea Shop" (which by the way she could clearly say now) and goes and minds her 'shop'! Her favorite though is the cash register with all the paper money and coins!

I added the paper flowers I scored from Target years ago (their available again this year).
We are all enjoying her room , and as you can see, it's little occupant too...

Before I end my post, let me share with you an update on my Juju hat woes.
I posted the photo on IG and a Juju hat retailer gave me a tip...

I followed their advise and kept my hat in the freezer for 3 days and so far it's not shedding anymore!
I hope to enjoy my hats for longer now!

Have a Lovely Weekend Everyone!


 Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...
