Finally, a post that doesn't revolve around my weight, what I'm eating or my workouts. I never planned on my blog being taken over by my fight with fat. I promise more home decor and crafty posts in the near future, starting with this one.
You all know I got Lauren the cutest dang bed off Craigslist recently, and few cute little decor items to dress up her desk and room. Well, some of your comments mentioned her needing a mirror. I totally agree, she needs a mirror.
So Ta Da...Mirror.
Isn't she cute!! I got her at one of my favorite stores, The Barn. Lauren has already told me it's for putting on her make up. That's my girly girl!
I know some of these pictures are repeats, but I wanted to show you a close up of the 'Art' on this side of the room. They are framed paper dolls. I love them, they are based on Gone With the Wind, one of my all time favorite movies. Only the artist used animals instead of people.
Here's a close up of Scarlet O'Hare. Isn't she cute. I wish I could share the link to where I bought these, but sadly they are out of the paper doll business after 14 years. They want to try something new, good luck! I will miss your dolls.
This is another paper doll from La Boheme. I'll have to figure out how to get a better close up so you can see the detail, maybe I should scan it? The blanket was made by a dear friend of the family, and it has never been used! Lucky me, Lauren has never pulled it off the wall either. I really wanted it be a keepsake, so far so good.
Mr. Type A made both of these little floating shelves with rods, I was the designer. He takes direction pretty good for a man! lol I just wanted to be able to hang her blanket and some of her dresses. Notice one dress is missing, it's on her baby. I pick my battles, my favorite of her dresses is put up in a box she can't reach. The picture of her and her 'Gigi' is hard to see, but it is one of my favorites. Gigi, is her Great Grandma, and like a mother to me, she helped raise me.
Aren't they cute! Lauren loved Gigi right away, even at 5 months old she new she was in good hands. Just check out that toothless smile!
This is one of the banner's I had made for her 'Tea Party 3rd Birthday", it hangs from her door now. I need to replace the dowel rod, it's too small. I will one of these days.
On to her little stool that resides under her desk. I bought her the cutest vintage little girl desk chair, and then we went to The Barn and she saw this. She HAD to have it, yep at 3 she already has her own sense of design. That's my girl.
My sweet friend Angie over at All My Treasures, wanted the 411 on this piece, so here it is. I didn't make it obviously, but I could have. Sometimes it's just nice to buy instead. (and easier, and less time consuming)
I think Lauren fell in love with it cause it's pink and soft.
View of the top cushion, the fabric is pretty cute, and very soft.
I love that it opens and can be used as storage. I love multipurpose anything!
And it's on wheels, so she can move it around easily. One less thing I have to to. =)
I hope you guys like the changes! Thanks for stopping by! xx
