awaiting final touches

Bailey and i made a few changes in her
room. we got a majority of it done in
december. now i need to finish.

we made just a few changes:
removed closet doors
replaced with white ruffle curtains
chocolate bedspread
brown flocked damask pillows
bailey pic
sign of her art exhibition
repainted her b (& finial)
added border and new crown
hung the chandelier (thnx granny)

i was happy to find most of the
decos in the garage- (garrett
loves my storage bins) or other
rooms in the house. love that.

i am still working on the wall her
bed is on. i hope to get that done next week. more pics to follow.

i am loving the pink black and brown! it feels opulent to me.

**i have to remember when i am decorating that it will not look like a catalog. people actually live in my house. i can't count the # of times i have seen a lovely piece @ a
store. i catch it
in the corner of my eye. i walk over to it- envisioning it in my house. it would add the perfect touch to _____
and as i reach for it and admire it in my hands, i see that perfect accent get totally trashed. i see one of my children spilling on it, or breaking it, or droping it, or getting pb or something
else on it, and i lovingly place it back on the shelf. it's not worth it to buy something and then get upset when it's ruined.
it's not fair to the kids- and it's not fair to the object that could be gracing some kidless-home's shelf or wall. nope- not for me. yet.

like i said~ people live at my house. check the inset of bailey's wall. that is a candy cane headband on the scrolled planter and of course dora's baby brother, a brush, a cup of water from the
night before.... it goes on.
