the room...and WW

*****updated...pics are up and the big computer is down. good thing we're geeks and have two other laptops*******

in the room, the finished product...shams, pillow cases, pillows, duvets, curtains and bolster. shewwww...i'm tired just typing it all. my fab SIL meg and i did some sewing overtime and got some projects done last month...i love meg for that!!!

ok...i hate that i can't upload the pretty upclose shot of the curtains, because they are hand worked little fairies that have poms...soooo cute!!! (clearance at hobby lobby)

my girls are huge fans of minky fabric...so they each got a pretty pink pillow (which made up for me not giving into repainting the room pink or purple...yikes)
this little shelf has been in the room since b was a newborn, but i love it! i did update her name by painting them black, distressing, glueing them in a fun pattern and adding some cute hot pink jewels for pizzazz. so cute!


my girls are sooo into fancy nancy...ok, i'm sooo into fancy nancy too! have you read those books? totally fab! anyway, these are the book covers...cut and framed and up on the wall. my girls LOVE this!!! fancy nancy adds 'fabulous-ness' in a way no one else can!
and this is wordfull wednesday where my friend, angie, at seven clown circus hosts a bunch of great blogs...so go and take a look. remember, all the cool kids are doing it!
