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.
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!
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. 😦
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!
