Shugie's Room

Monday, November 24, 2008

Thanks to everyone for reminding me that I haven't posted pics of Shugie's nursery yet! This is his crib, dresser, and armoire, but here they are in his room:

We did Shug's room all in Southern outsider/visionary art - his room is here - so we decided to make the new baby's room different and do his room around Southern signs (although I did hang a Gee's Bend baby quilt up) and maybe some photography. The Okra Festival poster is one that we bought there by Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. and over the armoire are showprints for a couple of places in the Delta - Club Ebony and Airport Grocery:

This old Deep South Milk sign we bought at an antique shop in Falkville. When Darlene visited last month, she was so surprised because this was the brand that she grew up drinking:

I feel like it's not finished in the nursery, though, because on one wall I also want to put up some photography I've done at art environments, like maybe Joe Minter's place in B'ham:
