Audra's Room

My youngest daughter just finished elementary school and will be starting middle school in August. She is dying for new bedroom decor to match her new maturity. Her bedroom has been a very girly pink for the last 5 years. She is wanting a modern floral with a fresh yellow paint color. I've been cruising the web looking for inspiration, and have found some cute ideas.

This is actually a photo of a painted floor , love the color, love the pattern, it would make
 a fabulous accent wall.


Whimsical table, handpainted, cute idea for a writing desk re-do.

Silver-leaf end table idea could definitely work for a nightstand.

She loves the look of these collectible shelves and turquoise would be a great accent color.
So, we're off to the fabric store to find the perfect modern floral fabric!

Crochet Tradition

I learned to crochet from my grandma when I was in grade school. She taught me the granny square and basic stitches. Over the years I taught myself to read patterns and learned more challenging stitches. I tried to teach all my girls the craft, but only two of my five daughters picked it up. My second oldest has a lot of friends who are expecting and she has been crocheting the sweetest baby layettes. Here are a couple photos and the link to her blog.

(P.S. I still love the granny square!)

One Crafty Daughter

Katrina, my oldest daughter, has become very crafty since she became a stay-at-home mom. Here is the beautiful embroidery she made for her niece Violet.

Sunshine Song

I sang this song to my kids
when they were babies, all six of them. Such a sweet little verse. I love it as wall decor.

(I can't recall whose blog I found this photo on, but as soon as I remember I will add a link. If it's yours, let me know!)
