A note from the writers

Blogger seems to be having some trouble with its videos. They've been uploaded correctly and will run sometimes. If you can't see them now, come back another time and try again. It's totally a game of chance to get them to run. If anyone out there has a fix, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!

Ava's Big Girl Room - Step 2

Things are slowly coming together for Ava's big girl room. We've nearly completed a new light fixture for the room and received some lovely artwork for the walls when our friends came to visit from Florida.

The room that is Ava's playroom downstairs was intended to be a dining room and had a chandelier type light fixture hanging in it, but it was replaced with a ceiling fan by the previous owner. Matt found the old light fixture in the attic a couple weeks ago and we decided to repurpose it for Ava's big girl room. It's not hung up and wired yet, but with a little spray paint, it's very close to being ready!


Another new addition to her big girl room is the artwork generously supplied by a dear TPS friend. She's been working on several pieces of art for her daughter and some other lucky little girls, and we feel so lucky to have some of her creations to hang on Ava's wall. Here's a couple pictures for now (Ava insisted on sitting on the bench for the picture) with more to come when we finally get her room finished and have them hung on the wall. Thanks, Kelli, for the wonderful artwork!

I'm glad we're not alone in turning the dining room into a playroom. I have a feeling that will continue from house to house 'til we have a finished basement or bonus room! Love the artwork.

I didn't even know you had an attic! So cool that you found that light fixture!
