This is a photo of a floral kids mannequin from my friend’s 6-year-old daughter’s room. i helped decorate! We did a darling french art studio kind of theme. i made tulle curtains with black grosgrain trim, a blackboard “galerie” sign and her folks got a drafting table and tiny stool. She even has ledges on the wall to display her artwork! This mannequin is the sweetest of all. i made the tutu to coordinate with her curtains. Then i made the necklace of dried roses by fastening them to black silk cord. They are from a stash her mommy kept. Every month, on the 12th, for the first year of that baby girl’s life, her daddy brought home one dozen roses to celebrate. A few of them had to be displayed somehow! Isn’t that the sweetest!?
i am thinking of my little buddy, “C” today, because i’m about to go surprise her at school. They have a program called “surprise reader.” i’m sure you all can imagine how it goes. Crazy, but i’m nervous about choosing the right book….i’m taking a bundle just in case…leaving now! Wish me luck!
