This week saw me put the finishing touches on this..............

This bassinette has seen some action. My friend Kellie gave it to me. She herself has placed 4 babies in it plus it has been lent out to numerous others. Scarlett spent her first 5 weeks in it - until she became so large that she needed to upgrade to the jumbo cot.

I decided that for this baby I would paint it the perfect shade of blue (which in case you were wondering is Dulux Wild Clary). Blue for boys and because blue is my favourite colour. Of course, all of this painting took place during the recent heat wave - painting semi-gloss enamel in 42 degree heat is no fun I tell you!

I can't believe that in less than two weeks there will be a baby lying in that lovingly painted blue cot. My baby.

The little pillow slip was hand embroidered by my Nana for her first baby over 60 years ago.

60 years and three generations of anticipating delicious babies.


  1. It looks perfect for a new baby boy. Mmmmmm I love babies.

  2. What a beautiful baby cot Shontelle and how lovely that you have such a treasure still from your gran. How exciting.
    Love Shirley.x

  3. Hey Shontelle! Love your newly painted basinette! I have one similar in my bedroom ... its full of my furry babies ... BEARS! :0) Love the hand embroidery by your Nanna, too ... lovely legacy to continue - all the very best for Bub's immenent arrival! Bear Hugs! KRIS
