Micaela's room & playroom

Micaela's bedroom and playroom are extra tidy for the first time in months, worth taking a picture since it does not happen very often!

The playroom is pink and periwinkle blue with a glossy white chair rail.  It's hard to tell in this picture but the  item on the wall is a castle and the lettering under says "The Princess Plays Here". 

You can see a glipse of her bedroom in the doorway.  It's extremely rare for both to be this tidy. Nothing like company coming to get the room in shape, we had family and friends over on Saturday and Sunday, we are having an end of school Playdate at the end if the week. Big question is how long it will last.  Thanks for stopping by.

"Little Girl" Table for Memorial Day BBQ

We had a BBQ with some dear friends. Micaela decided to set a special "little girl" table. Check it out... She wrote out the placecards herself. She knows exactly where to find the right stuff, notice the flag stirers in the glasses, the little star salf & pepper, and even found a patriotic bear for the centerpiece! Love my girl!

Sewing Cabinet

Sorry I haven't posted for more than a week, time is just flying by but what's new!
As you know, I have been looking for a sewing cabinet for months. I did not like any of the new laminate stuff in the stores so I was on a mission to find something old. Last month I got lucky and just happened to check Craigs List early one morning. I found one for FREE from a nice lady in Plano, just a few minutes away!!!
The bonus with the cabinet was the sewing stool, which I painted and reuphostered a few weeks ago.
Since then, I've been busy working on the sewing cabinet! It took me longer than expected to get this baby done but after a few bruises and scrapes on my legs, some paint and sand paper-- Ta Da, it's done!
Here is the before... as you can see, quite ugly but full of potential.
And now, here it is all repainted, with new hardware and looking oh so cute in the "sewing area" of our guest room.
