Part 1… Two days ago I posted (wow has it really been 2 days already?? Seems like last year!) about my doll trunk stenciling.
Today I present The Bed.
This first part could also be called, “I Painted And Stenciled A Doll Bed And Drank A Little Wine, Tho Not Necessarily In That Order And Not Necessarily At The Same Time, But I May Well Have A Glass Of Wine Later On Today — Probably In The Bathtub, As Soon As I Post This.
And today is New Year’s Day!
2010 — whee-haw! Bla,bla,bla.
I was born in 1964. What year were YOU born in?
Anyway… as to the new year…
A wonderful blogging friend sent me a desk calendar for Christmas, wow — even after her first mail to me was rejected! (I’d forgotten to tell you guys I’d let my P.O.box go.) Thank you very much, Dot! It’s beautiful and I’ll enjoy it every day over the next 12 months and no doubt will be sharing pages of it here.
I wish my photography did justice to how pretty the card is, with sparkles. The matching little envelope sticker is such a sweet touch too.
“Just like a white winged dove, sings a song, song that she’s singing.” — Stevie Nicks.
And….. I swear I did not know about today’s calendar quote (below) when I took the above doll bed / wine pics much earlier today. Wow, talk about cool!!
And finally, or Part Three — below is a picture of Kelly’s bedroom as it looks now. When I was 6 months pregnant with her I painted and wall papered what you see below — teddy bears in hammocks and general teddy bear cavortation, if the latter is even a real word.
But now… I am embarking on redecorating her room, the teddy bears having run their course! (I planned on starting the redo last May — but why rush into these things??)
Kelly has mentioned a Club Penguin theme for the decorating, but I think that will date too fast or she’ll tire of it, so I suggested maybe flowers or butterflies. What do you think? Any ideas?
I apologize for the fuzzy picture of the bedrooom corner but I’m too lazy to get up, take another one, and do the whole uploading / resizing / USB switching thing [from my iPhone]. I’ll post some clear pics of that wall paper one day, and the complete bedroom befores and afters — of course!
All in due time, Grasshopper. All in due time.
(Oh, I painted that old dresser too, about the same era I was decorating her nursery — June 2001.)
And… one more picture to ’round this all out.
Wait! One more — of our dining room, a couple hours ago too.
Blessings, now and always!
Wine and a bath await.
