The Passport and The Pink Room

So, Hoots Passport arrived today!! PTL! And without further adieu... her room...

I'm thinking it's a little cluttery. I went overboard on some things, but it's all so super cute. I may have to edit and cull through it before it's final. I still have to paint the dresser (it's at a repair shop right now) and my great grandmothers rocker is being slip covered... it's almost done. the room feels a little cramped and it's a LARGE room...

I need to put corkboard in the white vintage frame... like I said... still a work in progress

My father in law gave me this wonderful cabinet. It's very heavy. Lambert had to secure it to the studs. I'm in love with it.

The light fixture was a junky dining room light fixture that was actually hanging in our master bedroom when we moved in. I thought it was awful, but held onto it. A little pink paint and linen shades (that I tricked up a bit) and she looks pretty cute. I'm glad I didn't trash it.

I love this little bamboo chest too. I spotted in an antique store in Brenahm while on a ladies retreat. I wasn't in my car so I couldn't take it home with me... I drove all the way back the next week and thank goodness it was still there. The adorable red/pink stiched quilt is a TREASURE my stepmom (in Indiana) gave me. LOVE IT TOO!!! She's given me some wonderful antiques and vintage goodies over the years.
I framed Libbie's announcement and one of her shower invites.

I have waited years a years to decorate this sweet little girls room. Don't get me wrong I totally enjoyed (even more than I thought I would) decorating Hoot's room. I have collected so many little vintage treasures for Libbie's room and I am loving every minute of seeing it come together. Can't wait to share Grandma's rocker and the dressers when they're done!


  1. It's perfect! You are so talented! Can't wait to see her playing in it with Cora! :)

  2. It is precious! Cora, Libbie and Emily can have many tea parties and play dates!!! I can't wait!!!

  3. It is so beautiful, and so personal. All of the unique treasures make it! I love the mix. Those sweet quilts...and books...what a lucky little girl!

  4. Very, Very Cute!!!! Love it! As always you hit a home run with your decorating!

  5. Oh my goodness her room is DARLING! I cannot believe I have not been following you all along, I really thought I was...well NOW I am!!
