A Regency Crib…

January 17th, 2012

My gorgeous client commissioned me to dress a babies crib …
I was give an open brief …
… except …

To dress it simply …
… and splendidly …
And for it to look as though baby had slept in it … peacefully …

I used beautiful vintage laces and the finest of silks …
I think baby slept peacefully …
… I hope she agrees …

    You were the girl to make up this crib Lisa!

    Soft as down and ever so fresh,
    frangrance of babe one couldn’t love less,
    amongst the folds you placed there with care,
    a sweet little one has just slept there – with teddy bear! x

  11. [...] The nursery maid is looking after Louisa and Henry in the beautifully equipped Nursery. Elizabeth who has been for a walk on the Heath rushes in to see her niece and nephew. The crib is made by Tarbena Miniatures, while I made a mattress, covers and dressed it. Another sampler kit by Nicola Mascall worked by Elaine adorns the wall.
