Humility and Groupings

Today's car conversation between 2 nine year old girls went something like this:
Girl #1: I like your hair up like that.
Girl#2: Yeah.
Girl #1: It looks really good!
Girl #2: I know!

Humility at its finest.

I've mentioned a certain friend of mine has an amazing ability to group things.  (By the way, she didn't say "I know" when I complimented her on this.  We're so grown up like that.)  Here are a few examples from her home:
This is a little nook just outside the master bedroom door.  I love the picture arrangement.

The master bedroom is so soothing.  Soft green and white with black accents.  I really took this picture because I've obsessed over her lettuce/bunny picture for about 5 years.  I'm in therapy over it.

Her stairwell.  I guess that's a little obvious.  But you get the point of her creative eye.

On yet another note, below is a little tiny makeover I did this winter:
Before, in daughter's room.

After, in bonus room.

My dad made this pie-safe when I was a little girl.  It originally had punched tin in the area where the fabric is now.  Teddy bears on rocking horses, no less.  Hello 1982!  Over the years it has held my sweaters, my daughter's clothes, and now it holds my fabric.  Nope.  Never held pies, but it has kept lots of things 'safe'!

The girls' conversation was hilarious! If only we could say those types of things, eh? :) Love the pie safe, by the way. At first, I thought you had covered the panels with chalkboard paint! It looks really great!

I LOVE the pie safe re-do. I'm so glad you have gotten to hold on to something special all these years!
