I can’t imagine a more perfect Met Monday post then the hot mess I cleaned and organized all day Saturday. I am so glad that I have kept track of my “2009 Organizing Challenges” Click here to see my progress.
Ok I declared war on the room. As you can see from these pictures war needed to be declared.
In case it’s hard for you to figure it out, this is the floor between the wall and The Baby Girl’s bed, I (we) found everything except for dirty dishes, Thank God.
Yes that is a closet. Enough said.
Don’t you love the naked Barbie on the windowsill, how about the bed with no sheets.
Now that’s a closet.
I love this over the door hook thingy, it holds all of her purses, her hats, her fins for swimming and then we hung another hook for her towels.
I love the way her shelves turned out, I will be adding to them.
The Baby Girl and I had many meltdowns during the day, but I didn’t back down. I just made myself think about how much happier we would both be when the war was over. It didn’t take me long to realize her ideas and mine were not the same. She said, “I think I want a pink bedspread.” I thought black and cream. But, it’s her room so I started looking for something pink that might work.
This one is pink eyelet, it would probably work.
She loves polka dots and so do I. I just don’t think this would work with all the treasures I’ve already bought.
Did I mention black and cream?
So I wasn’t in love with any of the pink and The Baby Girl was not feeling my black and cream so I continued to look, while she made lots of noise in the “war zone” because I had just had meltdown #3 when I found her laying on the bed not cleaning. It’s 11:18 and the t.v. has been turned off. Up oh!
I wandered over to Kohl’s, all I can say is disappointment. I did find one that The Baby Girl might not roll her eyes at. Try to ignore the flower sheets and try to imagine some really cute black and creams ones…oops there is the black and cream again.
So I got frustrated and made the tough decision to go and look at Wake Up Frankie and of course I found everything that WE yes I said WE love.
Isn’t it adorable? Sure it is, the comforter alone is $179 and that doesn’t even touch the bedskirt, the pillows etc. Of course The Baby Girl wants her initials in the center (not sure if I like that idea), but I’m working on a plan. We’ll see how it works out. Can you see the polka dots?
How about these pillows in a different shade of pink. The Baby Girl says, “Heck Mom we could make those.” Let’s hope so cause these babies are going for $55 each.
I love love love these polka dots, but I’m sure I can find something a little more practical and a little less expensive this set with set me back $76. I’m on a hunt.
We are going to make a trip to JoAnn’s to see what tulle will run us, these curtains are not that expensive, but The Baby Girl sees us making a set with Ann. The price tag for a set is $49. I’ll have to stop by and see some mistreatments at Nester’s blog.
Ok we spent the afternoon shopping. We found no pink polka dot comforter, dang it. We found the biggest fluffiest pillows that The Baby Girl loves, black sheets and a warm white blanket, she is sleeping soundly. The hunt is on. The cleaning and organizing is completed and now the fun begins.
