our creative space . . . 'secret forest bedroom makeover'
We have a little elfin princess in our home. She's ethereal, bohemian & you'll find her curled up on a toadstool. Her soft squeaky voice & dinner plate blue eyes manage to suck me into agreeing with almost every crazy idea she has. She's sported a chic French bob with short blunt fringe since she was 2 (after her twin sister cut the whole way around her hair) & wears feathery headbands & stripey tights to school, her spirit & style is uncrushable, until private school uniform.
Our 3rd girl is like no other . . . humming her way through life,
her twin sister got a bedroom makeover while they were away on camp,
with sore hands, i only had time for one room, Sophie's choice,
so the next weekend, while they were at a sleepover,
i did her bedroom as a suprise too.
She likes anything quirky & quitely soaks up praise,
her collection of birds, owls & toadstools is growing,
& at night time, it's quite magical, just like her.
I have all the tissue fans, balls & hearts in my shop, they make ace decorations!!
My son helped me hang lights (why use a stepladder when you can hoist an 8 year old boy on your shoulders??) . . . he's doing his best swivel chair "we meet at again Octopussy" impersonation.
I might not be sewing but i am fiddling around with the decorating. For some seriously inspirational creativity, check out Our Creative Space every Thursday, love Posie
