"Oh Hello! Come on in! I am sorry I didn't see you I was just beautifying....well, come on, come in!"
Okay, I can't make it through the whole post that way so I am changing back to me :)
When I was pregnant with Annie I didn't know if I was having a girl or a boy so my husband painted one room pink & one room blue. I really wanted the girl's room pink & green so he just painted the closet bright green & we took off from there...but there is no way I am showing you the closet. :)
So, our big green splash is this dresser, which my parents got at an auction for 10 dollars & I painted it pink & then green & then sanded it like crazy!!!
And she made the candy garland which graces the mirror.
Apparently, I have no discernment in how many things you can hang on the ceiling. The chandelier was a cheap brass one from Home Depot (20 bucks) that I attacked with spray paint & Christmas decorations.
The curtains that I loved didn't come in a bright enough green so this is when I bought my sewing machine. It is amazing how much you appreciate things when you make them! I actually made her bed spread & many of the pillows too. If you knew me...you would be VERY surprised I pulled it off.
I mean VERY surprised :)
Behind Annie's door is her Secret Butterfly Garden. (Dollar Tree) Shhhh...don't tell anyone :)
Her Aunt Tricia gave out green donkey shoes to her wedding party when she got married & it was the perfect color to match Annie's room, so even though we don't believe in luck, we love to remember that fun day.
Now this side is a bit of a mess, but a girl has to stash her STUFF somewhere.
So what does a 5 year old girl stash?
Money in her ballerina pig,
...little glass animals, and High School Musical junk everywhere!
I just love these pictures from her first birthday :)
And her shell jar will get one more shell on our trip to
