{ girls day }

Girls Day Out

A certain little someone invited me to join her on a road trip (the two-wheeled kind) and a picnic in the park this afternoon. I can't think of a lovelier way to spend the afternoon. After I wrap up some work projects, I will be sneaking out a bit early to join her for a girls day out.

Before I sign off for the weekend I thought I would share some pictures of little one's room with you all. Now that she's out of school for the summer and spending more time at home, we've been working on clearing out the clutter and organizing her room to make clean-up quicker and easier. Despite being somewhat of a tomboy, little one is fine {for now} with all of the girliness I've indulged in here. I hope you like what you see.

This antique iron bed was mine...I just love it in little one's room.

This little cabinet contains many cherished you can see a photo of my grandparents when they were dating, my framed birth announcement, and my daughter's silver baby cup. On the bottom shelf is her first pair of Ked's.

Vintage tea cups and plates adorn this painted armoire which houses all of her books. The bottom drawer (which you can't see here) is used for shoes.

a corner for reading

My creation
little details

I repainted my mom's childhood desk white and it is now my daughter's favorite place to write. We're planning to add another coat of paint to it. The vintage typewriter was a gift from Oma and Opa--a great EBAY find. 

Decorative plates from Anthropologie hang above her bed.

A wooden, painted crown, personalized with the first initial in her nickname, hangs above her desk.

The shoes must coordinate with the room, no?

To see more photos from her room, you can go to the flickr set I created. 

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave your thoughtful comments this week. Wishing you all a restful and rejuvenating weekend.

THANK YOU Cindy! I think you might be right...this might be more of my little paradise than hers. ;)

The bicycle? With the martini on the fender? love love love. More info please.

Also loving the chandy, the toile chair, the Eiffel, the bunny painting (more info please), the bedframe, the chenille bear, the TYPEWRITER (how very Briony Tallis/Atonement, love it), the plates. Sigh, lucky girl. I'm coming for a sleepover.

Oh my good god! What an incredibly beautiful room! When can I move in? What? It is not for me? What do you mean?....Just what I would expect from a lady such as yourself Suzanne and what a lucky little one to have such a gorgeous room so lovingly put together by her fabulous mom! I adore each part, especially her/your bed, her reading nook and her desk! I also love her drawing above her desk and are those your pink bikes? No way! I love it all! Have a super fantastic weekend hun and thank you SO much for sharing!

Oh my! Are you serious? This room is honestly every little girl's dream. Actually, it is my dream and I am 34! perfectly pink...and I do mean perfect!

This is so dreamy and lovely. Like cotton candy and pearls.

That first image is precious with the lines of the iron bed and teddy in the perfect spot. Love that vintage typewriter and desk! We have that same glider, only in yellow and white.

I'm sharing these images with my two girls [ages 3 and 6], they'll love to see it. We are also working on their rooms this summer. Whew, lots to do.

This is the most gorgeous girl room I've seen! If I were little I would think I was heaven - pink was my favorite color back then. Love it!

Suzanne : : S.HOPtalk said...

Wow! Thank you all for your kind words. You sure know how to make a girl feel good. :)


The pink bike was a birthday surprise from hubby and little one. It's a "kosmopolitan" from Kustom Kruiser and yes...I love it. The bunny painting is actually a print on canvas. I can't remember the co. but will track it down for you. If I remember, the prints (I have two) were very reasonable.

Thanks again glad you like "our" room.
