I have favored the color pink for all of my life, with my second favorite being pale, robin's egg blue. I grew weary of the pumpkin shade of woodwork in my "guest" bedroom and have whited out that color so that I could have as much pink as I want. Well, I told my four year old granddaughter, Grace, that said room is now "the kid's room". She loves to come to Mimi & Baba's house for a "Sweep over". Yes, that does translate to sleep over.
I found the lovely pink panels above and the sweet balloon curtain below at Target in the Simply Shabby line and I just love them. I tell you I drink pink in as if it were medicine.
I stenciled that pretty "fantasy vine" as it is called from my Jan Dressler stencils and I knew I only had to do one patch of it right where it is, otherwise it might have been too much were I to have surrounded the entire room in it.
The next step is to go to Toys R Us and buy new things for Gracie to play with rather than to subject my antique dolls to torture. I am having such fun with my "kid's room"! And indeed, I know it would be nicer to call it "The Children's' Room", but hey, this is 2011, not 1888. Tee hee.
