this is what phoebe and i got up to yesterday while alex was at kinder. i'd love to have had him help too but one wall in her bedroom was enough, i didn't want the carpet done as well.
how hot is this pink?! i have been promising this room for, well, since we moved. i'd been slowly getting stuff together so we could have a dramatic makeover - new duvet cover, curtains and the wall. and because i paint anything that doesn't run away from me once i am tempted with a brush in my hand, her pine drawers got a makeover, and i'm still having a think about her bed...
and of course the princess canopy net thing. but that she already had. i haven't taken an 'after' pic yet. doh. but i do have a bedtime one. check out the paint in the hair. i so wasn't tackling that. they went to mum's today - bunny is queen of dredlock removal. and they were budding so nicely at the back yesterday.
alex's room is next. the 'feature' wall depends on whether we're going for a batman or superman duvet cover. sigh. not sure yet. i guess i have to let him decide, either way i just know it's not going to be either pretty, or tasteful. at least phoebe's is one out of two. their rooms are right next to each other and i took these two photos standing still in the hallway outside the two doors and aiming in. showing it like it is, i didn't tidy for the photos! and if you're wondering at all, what alex is wearing, it's a ghost costume. of course.
and SPEAKING OF PINK.
AND heading toward the next ,000.
in her charity raffle for the National Breast Cancer Fund!!!!
How AMAZING is that woman. I fear having the term sycophant levelled at me, not sure why, probably because i loathe them, but this is a remarkable effort by the energy of a remarkable woman. She's humbled by the efforts of everyone else, and rightly so. But it's her energy that started this. Elsie Flannigan even gave her a mention on her blog AND donated the cutest prize. There's 24 hours left to donate here. and email ngaire the details. I'm proud to be even a small part of this.
