There once was a little girl :)
There once was a little girl, all in pale pink, ribbons in her hair, and a sweet little smile...Shes still here, but now shes growing up and I have no idea where that time went ;) .....Some how that little baby just turned 13. Melanie my daughter loves decorating as much as I do, she told me she wants to be a Designer too when she grows up.....Awww....well any who, lol, any of you with teenagers out there will probably appreciate this post :) I have 2 Sons and Melanie is my little girl, so when she was born, I had soooo much fun decorating her room, all in pink and sweet little pastels. I keep scrapbooks, so couldnt grab a pic of her "little girl" room for this post, ( I will one day when I have more time ) So for Drama, ive grabbed one from a Favorite blog to show the contrast of what transpired here on Melanies 13th birthday......She asked for one thing, a new "teenage like" bedroom. Being the Creative mother that I am, lol, and one who wants her children to express their own personalities as they see fit ( with in reason, lol ) I gave her the freedom to pick out a new style for her room and new bedding, prints, and accessories...well the following pictures say it all better than I ever could.....just beware, its shocking :) as in "shocking pink"~
The Picture above was what I was going for ( a model home shot ), but Melanie had other ideas, LOL ;)
Are you ready for the next pic ??
lol, just another note, when I took the lamp out of the box , I almost fell over!! Melanie and I both laughed and said WOW, I bet some birdy is missing a lot of feathers, awwwww :)
Heres the result of Melanies decorating "teen style", I was pretty happy with her using the "freedom of expresstion ", but she knows every time I walk in , I still say WOW :)and giggle too ;)......... its sooooo hot pink , that at night, her room literally glows pink and comes out into the hallway!
When its completely finished, I will post more.....Oh to be a Teen again! ~ how fun ~
