The Twelve Days of Christmas

This nursery is inspired by the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas". I wanted to do something for the upcoming holiday but I didn't want to do a standard holiday themed room. So, I decided to create a room that takes elements from the well-known Christmas carol without using any Christmas decorations. There are times I played fast and loose with my interpretation of the song's lyrics but I think the end result turned out to be a sweet vintage nursery for a little girl.

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me...
