Isn’t my niece precious? We had such a good time doing a photo shoot and her room is adorable! My sister and I recently created the wall gallery above the play kitchen. What a fun space for a cute little girl! We’ve already had many tea parties and lunches.
My sister did such a fantastic job turning the nursery into a big girl room. I hope to share the rest of it with you soon!
