Another peek..


Y'all were right! Its knobs for Madison's dresser. This dresser belonged to my oldest son Jesse. It held all of his little gowns and socks then was passed down to Kaylee. Now Madsion gets to enjoy it.

It now sports these "grown up" knobs I painted. Guess y'all have a hint of where we are going with this room..

Right again! Madison found this adorable pillow and fell in love. We have yet to find the perfect comforter but the fun is in the hunt,right?

Now that the dresser was complete I wanted to start on something special for her wall. I started painting "her surprise" and was not feeling very well. Marc was just returning home from a trip out of town to find me in bed. Ick... I think I have the flu. Aches and fever are about the only thing that's keeping me down. I just cant wait to feel better so I can get back to that unfinished wall. If you know me even a tiny bit,unfinished paint projects drive me crazy!! So as soon as the fever breaks and I get some energy flowing once again...I have a date with a very special 8 year old and a paint brush.

  2. Oh poor Susie I hope you get back to feeling better very quickly!

    Those knobs are great on the dresser and LOVE the pillow. You might remember we did my daughters room in black/white (zebra) with hot pink accents. We ALL still LOVE it! Can't wait to see more, more, more......

    My home computer is going into the shop this morning. I hope it gets fixed quickly cause I have a hard time with hubbys laptop. It also leaves when he goes to work. :(

  3. We are decorating my daughter's bedroom and she has fallen in love with animal prints too. We are currently on the hunt to see what we can find. It's so exciting! I cannot wait to see what you are painting, but I surely hope you feel better soon. It's no fun being sick.

  7. Your knobs are great!

    Get well soon. I think we are all living in fear of germs at this point. If you do think it's the flu, head to the doctor.

  24. How cute that room is going to be, Susie! Maddy has great taste.

    Hope you feel better soon & yes, I'll be glad to share any ideas I've found on granite. I hope to get mine done in the next month. It's not cheap, but I'm happy with what we are getting. I def. am doing the lowest cost I can, but found a place near me that has slabs & lots of good choices in the lower pricerange. I'm happy!

  26. You are such a good MOM!!! Good timing with the beautiful new room! I can just feel the love in your posts. My heart aches for everyone involved with these growing pains of childhood and the reality that the outside world is not always kind. It does bring all of us closer to each other and strengthen our character along the way but...darn it, it hurts! Feel better soon-this stomach flu bug is the pits.

  46. Take your time.....I've been so SICK all week and am nearly at the end of my anti-biotics and still am sick. Blah....something weird is going around our area. I've known of so many sick people...and it's not the flu it's some odd cold thing.

    Try to pump your body up now with whatever works for you because it gets into your chest and head. We've all had it in our house and of course me .....
    "Ms. No Immune System" got it the worst of everyone. Blah.....
    Hope you feel better SOOOOON!
