Dining room redo and Mabel’s bday

Newly painted dining room

Here’s our dining room all decked out for her party. Not that I want to take the flowers or pendants down any time soon. We bought this chandelier, oh about 3 years ago in Sicily. It has been rewired and hung finally. I’m so in love with it.
A mirror will eventually be hung behind the table.

tutus for little princesses
I made tutus for her friends.

Yum, plates!
And she had a blast at her party. My little princess is 2. It’s been a long 2 years. She is a handful. And finally getting easier.

Starting this week, I’m trying to re-do my craft room. It’s dark and dreary and uninspiring. It’s in the basement with a tiny window and dark pine ceilings so lots of primer and paint will be involved. I’m hoping I will want to spend more time down there if it’s more pleasant. We’ll see.

Such an adorable room! I bet if you brigten your craft room up you will want to spend time down there. Maybe a corner for the little one so she can play while you do. I want one of those tutus to wear over my jeans. : )
