One Room Down,Many More to Go...

I left California behind in the wee small hours of the morning on Tuesday.Its been a whirlwind of boxes ever since!Heidi's room is the only thing I got 100% down.All the other rooms are either in need of furniture or in the middle of dry wall.I'll save the wacky world of wall paper this place has/had for another post though.The house is darling and I couldn't be happier!I was a little off on the history though so I thought I'd correct myself now.Originally I was told the house was built by the government in the 40's for soldiers returning home from WWII to work in the mines up here.Turns out it was built in 1936 by the government just to get soldiers up here for work.But onto the room!

Heidi is the type if girl that will play with a dump truck while insisting that she wear a tutu.When it came to her room though she wanted 100% girlie so that is what she got.Ballerinas,chenille,and pink up the wazoo and of course all of it with vintage!

The rooms are small so I told her that her room would be for sleeping,reading and she could have her ceramic tea party items up there away from her brothers 2 year old hands.They have a play room down stairs for their big stuff and most of their toys so it works out.The dresser I scored at a thrift for $15.00!

The matching night stands I found at Vintage 101 for $20 each and you may remember the lamps were a dumpster rescue back when I lived in Indiana.

These prints I picked up in Indiana from my friend Jan's shop.

and last no room is complete without a pink hamper to put your dirty tutu's in at the end of the day!
