Wait for it...

So as promised I have finally taken pictures of the little girls room. It turned out really cute if I don't say so myself! I found the cute picture on our last trip to Prague. Then the Dolls hanging on the wall are from mom and dad's trip to Russia. The red mirror was a hand-me-down from Aunt Carol and Uncle Hal when they moved to the East Coast. It was stained brown, but I put a coat of red on it and love how it looks hanging from these curtain tie backs from Tiapan Trading. I picked them up for 3$ each and a quick coat of paint on them for the tie backs and the hanging letters. I love them. The toy stack was an Ikea find that needed to be pained too. And last but not least the lamp I found a strand of black and red beads in my sewing stuff. So I guess what I am saying is the only thing I really spent money on was the framing of the picture. It is always the most expensive and I wish someone(ahhmm...Ryan, Leslie, Dru) would buy and mate cutter and learn to do this well. I would pay for the mate cutter. Anywho there you have it! What do you think.

Wow, how cute! I love it! The picture is so different but ties it all together so nicely. A mat cutter would be nice, but I'm less motivated since a) I don't have much wall space left in my house for anything and b) I don't know that I want to invest the time to learn how to use it (at least right now). Framing pictures is so fun, but you're right, SOOO expensive!

It's darling, so cute how their beds are pushed together! What happened to the lady bug bedding though? Never made it out of the cribs? Or is still unfinished? The room is darling. Good job.

I love it.
Love that picture.
Love the colours.
Love the lamp.
Love that mirror.
Love the dolls.
It's pretty much the nicest bedroom I've seen.
Well done, your girls are lucky to have such an amazing room full of culture and little treasures.

PS Dru's still keen to go in on a mat cutter.
But I don't know why, we're like borderline homeless poor!
