As you all know me so well...
From my obsession to vintage children's toys
too my bubble gum taste in colors
Sometimes even I forget that I am no longer a child
and even more that I'm actually a woman.
I'm not sure when it happened but it did
I grew up... although that is debatable somedays!
So in honor of being a woman, and tapping into being
sexy, beautiful, graceful, romantic, elegant
and all those other wonderfully over the top
descriptions of womanhood
I thought I would show you my more grown-up style.
this is a new item in my shop
I sold two others like it at the Crafty Wonderland sale.
Find out more about it by visiting my Keepsake Cakes shop.
I've shown you so much of my little home in the last two years
however my old camera could just not capture the magic in
our whimsical master sweet
Do you remember when I turned my room into a nursery!?
Oh what sweet, adorable, perfectly Chelsea Ann world it was!
But as much as my hubby loves me he did not like living in my pink bubble
I was quite desperate of finding away to change the room without painting
first I tried bringing in black to contrast the pink
ick~ that was a terrible idea.
So one day it just clicked...
with 7 dollars worth of old sewing patterns and some Elmers glue
I started covering every square inch of the room.
I added my own collage work from years back
one says bird and this one nest
and pages from old books of romantic scenes
I filled my little sweet with all my "grown-up" treasures
New items are always being added
whether their is really the room for them or not
The floral tin from an estate sale earlier this year in Idaho
The beautiful print I just purchased from Kelly of A Poppy Tree
and the two disneyesque fawns
my mother-in-law purchased for my last weekend in Idaho
All treasures that make me so wonderfully happy
including our beautiful wedding picture and the candles from our reception
This vintage dresser was also purchased in Idaho
it was the first piece of furniture I ever bought for our home
My side on the bed...
quite honestly there isn't another side as the room is so very small
I store my library books and family photos here
As well as a pretty little bowl to place my hair bands and bobby pins each night
