For 5 years, we lived in a tiny two room apartment in a concrete sky-rise building in Ukraine. It was very cozy, but worked fine with the twins and Britain in bunk beds in one room and the baby in a pack-n-play in the room with C and I.
Since returning to the states, I have had a pet project for the past year. Knowing that we will probably only be settled state side for a short period of time before going back overseas, I had one great aspiration in domesticating our rustic little house on the lake.
Id like to think Im low maintenance. I can live with a hole in the ceiling in my dining room. The 1970’s teal paint in the downstairs bedroom can be ignored. But I desperately wanted to create a dreamy little girls room. These days of tea sets and baby dolls are fleeting. I have a couple finishing touches still to be placed, but here is the nearly finished West Wing… Many thanks to some lovely ladies who helped inspire our Strawberries and Chocolate Suite!
Lauren, Izzy LOVES her oh-so-soft minky bedding!
The dollhouse my grandfather made for me when I turned 6.
Rebecca, the monogrammed pillows are such a nice touch!
These sweet knobs were custom painted by Rachel to go with the brown, pink & polka dot theme.
My amazingly talented sister is a portrait artist. Look what she surprised me with for my birthday!
Thanks to Jenise for the girls adorable matching purses and Nitzia for this perfectly girly hairbow holder!
My mother let me take the tiny tea table that was mine when I was a child!
Laura, the lettering turned out perfectly!
Sweet Dreams baby girls!! Mommy loves you!!
