{girly}

Ok so I started decorating the girls bedroom over 2 years ago but have never finished. I am determined to do so. I have always been a fan of shades of coral & pink so I ended up painting an accent wall in the girls room a rich coraly pink color. When I saw the below room designed by none other than Kelly Wearstler it went straight to the inspiration file. I love those colors.


Then on Sat. I scored big time because I was able to have a girls day out to shop the 50% off day @ Goodwill.  I was so excited to find the below books.  Not only do they look beautiful they are packed full of fun stories to read to the girls.  I am recommitted to add all of the finishing touches so that I can place a big fat check mark next to the 2 year old project.


Of course my fun shopping date & I couldn't resist trying on a bunch of old hats.  What's the deal with old hats...either my HeEd is muy grande or they used to have smaller heads back in the day.  One thing is for sure though, it doesn't matter how old I get there is something about getting together with girlfriends that makes me feel so young & giddy.  I've said it before but if anybody wants a thrifting partner call me....any excuse to go.  

Half way done with making some little hair accessories.  




This little one had to have feathers on hers.


Wow lots of pink girliness every where.  I feel fine about that too.

Here's to a productive rest of the week.

I LOVE that coral and turquoise room! You must have the best Goodwill EVER. Now I'm inspired to do some thrift store shopping - I'm jealous of your book finds! I also love your hair clips. Do you sell them? Oh, and I love your blog too. (There's a lot of love here!) I didn't see a "follower panel" though...??

i think i am going to start calling you my new bff!
in the wee early hours this morning i started making my little girl some hair accessories -too! nothing like your beautiful ones. she still has paper fine thin hair, but i did add a feather or two as well.
i'd love to go thrifting with you anytime. perhaps, we'll go in our retro aqua blue VW bug van! what do ya say??? great score on those "gaawgeous" books. love the colors and the gold swirls.

I think hats used to be worn much higher on the head than nowadays, which would explain the smaller dimensions...

Just a lurker peeping in with a thought! Looks like a really fun day!

Annie said...

Who's the shopping partner? She looks familiar but I couldn't put my finger on it. At quick glance I thought she was our sister. :)

That last photo of Big M is hilarious. She looks like a little Easter bunny with her teeth like that.

Good luck with finishing the girl's room. It already looked awesome a year ago so I can only imagine it's going to look that much better.

great books, adorable hair accessories! i'm the same way with older hats! they just don't seem to fit on my head!

I have been responding to your comments on my site...I'm never sure if people check back, or if I should be leaving them on their blogs instead! Anyway, I just read your post "fullness", and the part about our Savior - I can't believe how many fellow believers I have found through blogging already! I find it so encouraging! :)

Full House said...

Oh thank you so much for all of the nice comments!

{The Roberts Family} - I shop quite a few Goodwills all in Mesa. I actually bought the books @ the one on Stapley & Mesa Dr....in the hood. One of my favorite ones to shop is on Recker & Main though.

{The One that Bakes At Midnight} - These are fairly easy to make so I say go for it.

This is another home to look at that you might like. This one has a twist to it on how they use a garage door. See if you can find it. Have a good day. This is the link:

I had those exact books when I was a little girl (that was ions ago:-) My mom still owns them, but she's not ready to give them up quite yet! They are truly a great thrift find!
