What 'cha Doin Wednesday

boy do i have a treat for you today!
the little princess, the baby and i went to a friends house today...
not only is she super sweet, but she is the most creative home decorator i know!
seriously, country living needs to hire her!
she recently moved into this new home and i thought i'd take you along with me as i toured her beautiful home!!!
grab some lemonade (it's hot here) and follow me...
welcome in
the play room is to your left. the kiddos can play dress up, if they'd like...

isn't her living room to die for!!! i must tell you before i forget, she has done EVERYTHING herself. trim, painting, cabinets...everything.

with that said, let's continue.

her attention to detail is what impresses me the most.


and i just love her collections. most of them are just like this one.

lets go upstairs.

she has 3 of the cutest girls and they are truly lucky that she is so talented.

your just going to pee!

the first bedroom on the tour, is holly's. so stinkin' cute! she cut out the wall art and you can't tell by the picture but the curtain rod is a birch branch.

this is on the opposite wall.

the next room is grace's. she's the oldest and she likes to sew and stitch. a girl after my own heart!

and look how cute that green janome is! i don't think you can tell by the picture, but the trim is old wooden rulers and the curtain rod ends are wooden spools.

and see this...it's a fairy house! shut up, i know...the little princess LOVED it!

last, but not least, is mary's room.
she's just like the little princess, she loves all things girly.
and those roses, yep, carrie made them. cut them out of wood, painted them and hung them.
oh, and she did the trim, too!
and we cannot go another minute without showing you the girls bathroom.
it's the cutest thing i've EVER seen. seriously!!!

again...the detail is amazing!
don't you LOVE the chalk board!

and speaking of detail, check out the 'ruffled' trim in the shower area.
it's meant to duplicate the ruffle on the shower curtain if you didn't notice!
the window is framed with an old wood window frame, i know...she's my hero!
she didn't think her room was worth a photo...i beg to differ!

and before you go, here's a peek at her back yard...

i hope you enjoyed the tour. we'll have to do it again at the holidays!

love,
