Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Moving furniture...............after the flood.........

This was a productive weekend. Gerry did get the carpet finished in the basement and the walls painted. On Saturday I moved all the furniture around in Alex room. I put the bed back in the corner, she had moved it when she moved in. The room is a pale lavender colour. She had fairies on the walls and I have left those so far. I still have to put up more pictures and finish off a few things. Its looking quite nice though. I have tried to downsize as I go. The desk by the bed is one of my friend Nancy's treasures and can be used to set things on if you are in bed reading. That gave me an idea. I will look for a pretty little breakfast tray the sit on the end of the bed.

I had packed away a whole load of stuff from this room and I took out a table to put in Tristens room. The dressing table and chest are antiques and now hold Tristens clothes. He kept taking all his stuff out of his drawers and then I could not find them. So.......moved them.

The long dresser also has a mirror but we have never used it. So I may use it in the garden. I am not sure yet.

The old TV sort of spoils the look.

I have a collection of hats and evening bags. The things on the back of the door are antique baby clothes.

I have already changed a couple of things. I changed the fairy on the desk for an Angel and I also changed the flowers. Instead of the pink ones I put Danielle's bridal bouquet in there. I have no doubt I will keep fiddling until I get it right. The next chore was Tristens room. We have been having issues with him in there. He always kept his room quite nice but has developed an attitude of late. So suffice it to say we have downsized in there too and moved things around. He has a lot more room now.

The white furniture that was in there is now down in the new bedroom. Not finished with that yet.
So now Tristen has bookshelves for all of his stuffies and toys

I moved his bed to one side so he had more room but he doesn't like it. He wants a table on his side of the bed he says. He sleeps on the side near the wall. So....may just have to change that.

Well thats it. I guess I will have to go back and see what we can do for him tomorrow. He's 4, how can he know what he wants sheesh!!! but he does and so it will be done.

Everyone needs to be comfortable in their own skin and room. Glad you realise it even when one is little.
Love what you have done with the lavender loom.

Your room looks lovely and I think the fairies are kind of cute- but I am partial to them. lol

Tristen's room looks great, too...cleaned up and nicely organized. Kids!!!! xo Diana

I love the little girls room, I liked fairies when I was a little girl and my daughter did for a while but she outgrew them very fast, she had fairies on her bed at one stage.

My Mom would have loved the lilac room. She was crazy for any shade of purple. Everything looks so nice and neat. I know it had to be so much work. Blessings to all of you,xoxo,Susie

The lavender room is gorgeously decorated--you have a good eye! I am sure Tristan will go through many "stages" of changing is mind about what he wants. Right now, his room looks like a kid's paradise--good use of the bookshelves!
