A little girl’s pink room on a sunny day.

Our littlest one's very pink room!

Today was such a lovely sunny day.  After a couple of weeks of gray darkness, the sun was a welcome change!  Over the Christmas break, my littlest one and I cleaned her room.  You wouldn’t think an eight year old’s room could get very untidy, would you?  Well, it took us an entire day! I had to capture it on camera while it still looked good.

A very pink room!

An antique “zig-zag” blanket.

We worked together in organizing her clothes, toys, books, dolls and room so that everything has a place.  Yeah, I know, I’ll be happy if it lasts even just a little while!  I love her room.  I think the pink is fun and cheerful.  She has some things from my childhood in there, too (antiques!?).   The blanket on the bed was made by my mother when I was eight.  We called it the zig zag pattern.

This music box little girl has been around for quite a few years!  My mother painted her in ceramics when I was a little girl. I loved pink back then, too.  My sister was given a blond girl with a blue dress, which matched her personality.  Happy memories!

Made with love.

There is a painting in her room, too.  It was painted by a local woman from where we used to live in Manlius, New York. I have three paintings by Terry Garwood as I love her style! It’s not surprising that there are flowers in the painting, is it?

I also love baby pictures.  This one is special because she is wearing a sweater that my grandmother had made when I was a baby.  I still have that sweater – packed away in my cedar chest!

Those are fairy lights at the top of the picture frame. She used to use them as a night light, but prefers the dark these days; a sure sign of her growing up. 😦

There was a light breeze coming in through the open window today.

It really was a gorgeous day today.  I had all of the windows open in the house! I love her curtains, so simple and sweet.

Here is the view from her window to the side of the house:

It just felt like a pink kind of a day.  Even the tulips given to me on Sunday were opening up!

I hope you have the chance to soak up some “pink” today!

  1. You know that I love Cliona’s pink room! Seeing it again brings back wonderful, vibrant and cheerful memories of my stay with you and your family in that very pink room. It was as tidy and organized then as is captured in your photos.

    The garden project looks to be a mega labor of love! How awesome of Paraic to bring your design to fruition. Thrilled I am for you to have more of what you crave…garden space!!

    I am looking forward to progress updates.

    My best,

    Kathleen

    • Hello Kathleen! Having you visit was so nice for all of us! I’m glad you have fond memories. I will definitely keep you updated with progress in the garden! I do have to admit that the new design is mainly Paraic’s, with a strong influence from his wife! 🙂 xoxo to you my friend. Dana
