Sammy's room has really been a labor of love. ...Just mostly not MY labor. Sammy is sharing with Naomi, whose room was all purple (clearly not the right color for a manly man like Sammy). So the first time my Mom came to visit, while I was on bed rest, she and my sister Ruth painted two of the four walls green. Then my Mom made the fabulous curtains that tie together the purple and green. And I bought the vinyl froggies and embroidered the scripture about Sammy's name.
I think the frogs are the perfect compliment for Naomi's Princess room. You know, the princess and the frog? But I didn't want cheesy crown-wearing frogs. Just groovy frogs! Manly frogs.
Cute, huh? My Mom also made the great quilt that is hanging over the side of the bed.
And here's my finished scripture, which you may remember I started way back when I was flat on my back.
My sister-in-law, Kelly in Cali, hand knit this rockin' frog for Sammy. Isn't it just the best frog you've ever seen? He has such character!
And since I was on a role with putting finishing touches on things, I also added the picture of Sammy to our wall in the family room. Here's the before shot:
And here's the new addition:
The picture of Sammy was taken by my sister-in-law, Jessica, while we were in Mexico over Christmas. Isn't it adorable? Oh, wait...I think I've already bragged about that shot on the blog... oh well - it's brag-worthy.
