Girl’s Room Corner

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Slumber parties, secrets, first crushes, and coming of age. It’s all happening once more with our nine year old daughter just as we witnessed with my older stepdaughter a decade ago. It is such a delight watching young girls grow, the way they forms ideas and opinions. How they possess that sweet innocence of youth but grow more mature and worldly each day. They talk of where they want to travel, the things they want to draw or write about, the adventures they want to have today and tomorrow.

I remember being a young girl and having similar dreams, listening to records on the floor of my bedroom and doodling in my sketchbook. Bedrooms for girls are special spaces, it’s there where they sleep and where they think, where they giggle about the present, and also dream of their future.

I truly enjoy the process of decorating for girls and a week ago finished a corner of the bedroom belonging to one of my daughter’s best friends – these two share a love of cheetahs, swim team, Scooby Doo, Harry Potter, and the color blue. All too soon that will change but for now I’m enjoying this moment in time.

Autumn Party Highlights

Monday, October 7th, 2013

Welcome back to another week everyone, hope you all had a relaxing weekend! I had my hands full with projects involving black paint from a front door at the shelter house to a set of two small chests, both given a makeover with primer and paint.  I’ll share them soon, but in the meantime, I’d like to thank all of those bloggers who linked up last week to the Autumn Party, here are a few tablescapes and vignettes that caught my eye.

I love the contrast between the chalkboard runner and white accents on Liz Marie’s table.

Get inspired by KariAnne at Thistlewood Farm, she knows how to style a hutch for fall!

I love how Pam at Simple Details saved oh $1,700+ and created a $5 vase inspired by a Kelly Wearstler bowl.

“October gave a party; the leaves by hundreds came, the Ashes, Oaks, and Maples,
and leaves of every name…” read more of this poem and see more of this tablescape at Back Porch Musings.
