Hand Painted Rocking chairs for Sabine and Rumi heirloom pond and forest themed-custom

image image image image

What a joy it was to make these heirloom rocking chairs for little Sabine and Rumi! Rumi’s was done in blues, greens, and cool colors, reflecting the colors of the pond themed flora and fauna depicted on her rocking chair. Sabine’s chair was a forest theme that shows off the bright reds, oranges and golden yellow’s of fall and incorporating the flora and fauna of the forest. I then got to add in some of the family’s own pets-chickens, a cat and a goat!

Check back for lots more detailed pictures of the chairs themselves! Thank you again so much Bettina and family for sharing these gorgeous pictures of your priceless grand babies!

 

Marleys Baby Shower Gifts!

Marleys mommy loves Lions! So I hand embroidered a lion with the sweet baby’s name on a mini blanket with some fun African inspired designs framing it. Mini blankets are the perfect size for covering a sweetie in a car seat, for a toddler to carry around, or for a beautiful wall hanging.  Purple is going to be the room color too-could you tell?!

I hand painted a small paper mache lion to add to the decor and a little stool as well. This time the stool is in a shade of Imperial Lilac, so as not to blend in with the wall color!  The hand painted wooden Easter Egg ornament shows a bunny amidst flowers with a lion nearby.

Sabine and Rumi’s Hand Painted rocking Chairs

These hand painted rocking chairs were made for new baby twin girls! The chairs are both very different, yet similar in many ways-a reflection of what will undoubtedly be seen in Rumi and Sabine as they grow older! I can imagine the fun they will have together and am just thrilled that my chairs will be a part of it!

I like to call these chairs the I Spy chairs because there are so many fun little details to find. Each has a bees nest and bees scattered throughout-learning to count has never been so much fun! Each chair has a cat-on the back of these chairs-one is resting atop a tree branch and the other is dangling precariously by one paw!  Hmm…who will be the daredevil?!

Rumi’s chair is more of a pond theme in springtime showing animals associated with water and living near the water with trees blooming in green and flowering in whitesand Blues. Hers has a mommy and baby otter-the otter is riding on her tummy as they float on the water-another baby otter waits patiently on a rock nearby. There are frogs near-one on a branch, one in the water guarding a bunch of frog eggs. A lizard is in a tree above, turtles are in the water and line up along a log in the water to rest in the sun. An egret is in a tree near the water with a nest above her/him with several baby egrets awaiting their parents return.

Sabines rocking chair is more of a forest theme in autumn. The trees show off a range of yellow, orange and red colored foliage. The animals include a red fox, two baby raccoons on a branch (undoubtedly twin raccoons?!) chickens (not a traditional forest animal but they have been adopted at the Burr Ranch!), squirrels, birds with nests and birdies, a fawn, frogs, a bunny family, insects-ladybugs, caterpillars, butterflies and lots more!! Don’t forget to check out all of the interesting fauna as well on both of these chairs 🙂

A special thank you to Bettina who was so wonderful to work with and let me create these one of a kind treasures for her new grandbabies!!! I am so lucky to get to meet and work with such wonderful and caring people! Enjoy those little girlies!

Princess Bed Canopy

So, funny story, well, frustrating really, the reason I have extra pictures of this canopy is because I tried to do my own photo shoot of it out in the forest…Well, once again, a painful reminder that I am not a professional photographer! I love photography-I think I have an “eye”-but I am definitely technically challenged! After realizing that I had not taken into account the weather-the wind was blowing so much that the ideal spot just didn’t work, and another gorgeous spot had snow dripping all over the place and would have soaked the canopy and ruined the picture. Seriously, I lost a pair of scissors, because of that couldn’t cut my twine the way I wanted-so it was wrapped up all over the place, and generally was pretty frustrated.  But, I finally found a “good enough” spot and was lucky to get a few good pics of it at least. See what you think! And here is a little more information on the canopy itself:

This canopy is definitely fit for a little princess! I worked with mom to create the perfect castle canopy for her little sweetie. Lauren’s first initial is hand embroidered in pink silk ribbon on the front center of the castle. Lauren loves butterflies so I put butterflies here and there all over the canopy-and even through the tulle front panel that was made to hang over her full sized bed.

The castle has scroll designs along each panel-a beautiful pearly white cording brings out these scroll designs perfectly. Jewels are also positioned throughout the canopy’s castle to add even more girliness to it!

The 4 panels can be tied back with a gorgeous chevron pink and white ribbon, or the front two tied, or all left untied to totally enclose the castle-depending on the princess’s whim of the moment. One of the panels has a secret pocket on the inside for Mommy or Daddy to leave a special note to their little princess-or maybe for Lauren to put in a special small book or stuffed animal.

And thank you so much Stephanie for sharing your picture of the canopy in place! It looks amazing!

 

Castle Princess Bed Canopy with Butterflies and Jewels!

What fun I have had working on this Castle Bed Canopy for little Lauren! She has a full sized bed that we got using Laura Ashley voucher codes, so this one is a bit larger and has extra long panels as her room has a very high ceiling. This Castle Bed Canopy has lots of pearly white cording to emphasize the quilting and castle pattern, it also has lots of pink and green jewels to add even more girliness to it! Lauren loves butterflies so they are incorporated through out the jeweled tulle panel that will extend out over top of the length of the bed as well as throughout the entire canopy.

The top of the canopy is done in a rich lime green cording that hangs from a ribbon covered circle to be able to attach to a hook on the ceiling. There are hand strung  jewels draping underneath the green cording to give the canopy an almost chandelierish effect!

The top edge of the canopy is finished off with a lime green and white chevron twill ribbon and the bottom edge of the top panels are finished off with a batting filled braiding of the same tarragon green as the main canopy.

The butterflies are hand cut, painted and even have glitter and glow in the dark paint for added effect for Lauren at night time! There are several little flowers- which may be what are attracting the butterflies to the canopy-interspersed throughout the top part of the canopy.

Four panels drape down from the canopy and can all be tied back, or just a couple depending on Lauren’s whim! They can be tied back with included pink and white chevron ribbon-so pretty!!!

There is also a “secret” pocket in the front panel of the canopy for Lauren’s mommy or daddy-or maybe a fairy?! to leave her occasional surprises or special letters!

This canopy has been a thrill for me to work on and I hope Lauren has lots of fun with it!

This bed canopy was designed and created by me. If you would like your own custom Coffey Creation please contact me at shannon@coffeycreationsforkids.com or check out my etsy shop for my premade items!

 

 

 

Finger Puppet Theater for Lily Sophia

I so loved being able to make this finger puppet stage! I had been wanting to do one for ages when Lily Sophia’s mommy mentioned wanting to do something extra fun for her little girlie’s first birthday! She mentioned how much she loved the Dream Big Little Pig book by Kristi Yamaguchi and I saw the perfect opportunity! Little piggy finger puppets- a mommy, daddy, Poppy pig and other piggies to show all the fun things that Poppy pig tried out while she was dreaming big!

I wanted the puppet theater to resemble the amazing theaters of the past. I made the soft baby pink curtains pleated with lots of draping and finished them off with mini puffballs. The theater itself is trimmed with a lime green satiny rope piping-along the edges and along the inside of the opening of the theater itself.  Jewels adorn the stage along it’s parapets and underneath the opening of the stage (resembling the lighting of the stages of days past). Lily Sophia’s monogram is hand embroidered in a dotted wrapped stitch on the middle front of the stage, and hand embroidery accents the top front of the stage as well as along the scroll designs on the sides.

Now, you can have a great looking puppet theater, but to make it even better, I wanted it to be portable! For a growing little girl, mommy’s love to be able to take things along for their little ones! So, I made lots of pockets for the puppets to go in on the back-with plenty of room to add more finger puppets for Lily Sophia’s growing collection!

The puppet theater is held together by a pretty ribbon tied in a bow, and then is held by a gorgeous chevron striped baby pink and white ribbon handle.

Mishelle, thank you so much again for thinking of me for this great project! I LOVED doing it and hope to get to do more fun puppet theaters in the future! Speaking of which, I’ve finished off two since doing this project! Check back to see my updates as I am slowly trying to catch up!!

Poppy Pig, Mommy and Daddy Piggies, and props for Puppet Theater!

Oh, my, was this ever fun to make for little Lily Sophia! Mommy Mishelle wanted a fabulous first birthday for her little sweetie based on one of her favorite children’s books-Dream Big Little Pig by Kristi Yamaguchi. It is such a sweet book! It’s about a little girlie pig who tries to figure out what she is good at-she finds out lots of things that she is NOT good at, only to finally find that with lots of practice she is really GREAT at ice skating!

Mishelle and I dreamed big-we wanted a fancy puppet theater to coordinate with Lily Sophia’s room that she would be also able to use at her birthday party. Mishelle thought a Mommy and Daddy pig with some fun props would be so much fun to play with and show off at the party. I made  little special piggie finger puppets- complete with wings and curlique tails  for each of Lily Sophia’s party guests (well, the little ones!) and Mishelle got each a copy of the book. Lily got a few extra finger puppets to go with her theater for her birthday-a piggie puppet with wings that were also able to be removed and reattached, a fancy girlie piggie in a hot pink satin dress holding a microphone, a mini easel, a “casual” girlie piggie, and a mommy and a daddy piggie as well.

A large Poppy Pig was a must for little Lily Sophia as well! Check out how Poppy Pig looks just like the character in the book-from her “sequined” bodice to the light purple and hot pink satiny ice skating costume to the hot pink ribbon in her hair!  She even has ice skates that are removeable! Poppy also has some wire inside of her to make her poseable for extra fun!

Yellow Doll/Small Child Chair

This sweet little antique chair was literally in pieces! One of the small dowel shaped rods was broken, and another was missing. The seat was in tatters-unusable. I took the woven seat off, sanded and repaired the rest of the chair, then painted it a soft yellow with some fun floral designs. I love the turquoise, greens, yellows, and a bit of red in the flowers!

Then I decided on a simple woven pattern for the seat. I attached the sides and back with a staple gun for added security, but the sizing of this chair is really more for a large doll or several small ones.

This chair can be personalized for your child for lots of play time fun! Contact me at shannon@coffeycreations for you own custom made items or check out some of my premade items at my etsy shop!
