Rock a Bye Baby on the Tree Top...


This is the cradle that Dave made for Madeline Mae. She has a Wizard of Oz room and for Christmas she asked for a cradle to rock her baby dolls in.
My hubby can do amazing things with wood! I'm very lucky that I can draw him something and he can make it. This design, however, was all his! We have this arrangement where he builds and I finish it. Something to do with almost passing out in the garage while tediously finishing our 400 piece armoire when I was pregnant with Lil. lol


I've been trying to convince him to sell on Etsy. I think I'm making progress! Most of the pieces he makes are very large- furniture, storage units, princess headboards. Lillian sleeps in the cap of a toadstool every night in her fairy bedroom...I'll have to show you pictures of that sometime! He's been brainstorming on some items that are smaller and more reasonable to ship.


So anyway, the idea here is that one of the nice apple trees in the Land of Oz is rocking the baby dolls away to some sweet dreams of their own. A castle and unicorn at Madeline's request...

And Auntie Em's farm on the other side, because we all know there is no place like home.
That's all for now, except for that tonight, I wish you all a very sweet...
