Ramblings....

It doesn't feel like I got a whole lot done yesterday. I did get the floor in the girls room cleared off and cleaned. Thank goodness I got the green marker cleaned up before Dad saw it. His head might have spun around! I did find that the furniture is really 3" shorter than what it looks like. Why? Cause it was sitting on junk crammed under it!



Once I got all the clothes cleared off it, I remembered how cute this chair really is. Not bad for a 15.00 summer find right?!


I also moved around the furniture....



....only to decide to move it right back to where it was before.



The artwork did come down though. The bitty one had to stand there with her hands on her bips and lecture me on how hard she worked on it.

Yeah I know honey, get over it! Love Mom.

I wanted to thank Londen @ Sixty-fifth Avenue for visiting cause I now have another cute blog to drool over! Isn't that a pretty name Londen?! She did the absolutely cutest playroom with some Pottery Barn inspiration. She is so clever! I asked her if I could *ahem* "borrow" this idea cause I just absolutely loved it!



Isn't that sweet?! I just went nuts over this! She made it with scrapbook paper and a butterfly punch! Clever Londen! I thought about just doing pink butterflies in different paper. The more that I look at this though the more that I like the different colors. So now I am on the hunt for a frame and mat to copy this. Thank you so much Londen for the inspiration!

I just counted them and I got 70 butterflies to make!

I better get scooting....

First, I love your 'Lucy' profile picture.
The butterflies are a wonderful idea...if I still had a young girl in the house, I'd 'borrow' that too. Cool. I also love that you are restoring your farm house....what an honor.
God Bless from WI

Oh how cute... I bought butterfly scrapbook paper the other night... something you might want to think about... much easier than cutting them all out... it has several different coloured ones in the pkg and I bet you could find it at Michael's...

The chair, the butterflies, the chair the butterflies... Oh, how I love them both (favorite parts from your special post!)... Isn't it true? How we get ahold of something like the little chair, and then it gets covered up, or passed by somehow? So glad you've rediscovered it! Thanks for stopping by always too. Ciao~

So glad I'm not the only one to move furniture around only to put it back in the same dang spot all over again.

DEfinitely digging the butterfly art. What little girl wouldn't love that in her room?

That is the cutest thing!!! I like the way you just pass over the fact that Jeff's head would spin around. Some people might think of that in the tee hee hee--his head would spin around way!!! People don't know it really would spin around--I'm just glad you left out the part about spitting green slime!!
