Bits and Pieces

For as long as I can remember I have loved to create atmospheres. Rooms, parties, photographs, all had to emit a feeling, every detail having a purpose. When I found out I was having a little girl after having two boys, to say I was excited about creating an atmosphere for her is an understatement. That was two years ago, and her room is still not finished.

We kinda had to do some big house rearranging to get enough bedrooms on the same floor, I lost my own private art studio and a closet, but we made it work. Financial situations arose and I was with child unexpectedly, leaving the Little Bird's room unfinished.

I have been collecting things for the girls' room for a while and am finally getting to pull all things together. I can't wait to reveal the result, though honestly not sure when that will be. Here are a few bits and pieces that I am thinking will make it into their room.

All were found through thrifting, I am trying to use as much thrifted, hand-me-downs and vintage pieces as possible. So far the only "new" stuff I have used is curtains, curtain rods and bedding fabric.

  1. I do like what you have collected so far. I am amazed at what people with throw away, and yet their is still lasting beauty in that item.

  2. oooo I love where you are going with this! I do hope you will share the room with us where you are finished!

  3. Decorating for a little girl is so much fun and you have a wonderful collection there. I am looking forward to seeing your room when you're ready to share.

  4. Oh, Sweetie, I completely understand about the unexpected - financial AND baby on the way - resulting in an unfinished room!! :)

    I love what you've collected. I think I enjoy decorating the kids rooms' more than I do the rest of the house!

    Can't wait to see the finished result....whenever that may be.


  5. Can't wait to see what you'll be creating in her room! Thrifting is such a great, unique and inexpensive way to to create! Looks like you're off to a great start! Loving that white piece of art(?) on the left with the chicken on top.

  6. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you create with these treasures! Decorating has never been one of my strengths, so I'm always in awe of the way people can pull things together to create a beautiful space. I'm sure it will be perfect when the time is right and you have everything you need!


Thank you so much for bringing your energy! It fills me up to see your comments xoxo
