Around The Room | Anna

One of the first things we did when we moved in this house was to paint Anna's room. It was a very, very bright green. Now it's a lovely light pink called Romance from Sherwin Williams.

My goal with her room this time? To create a comfortable place to sleep and play - and especially make more room to play. I moved the hopscotch rug from Simon's room to her room.

Everything in her room are things we already had - some things were moved from other rooms. I love the idea of shopping from what you already have...a move makes that even easier with everything temporarily displaced.

The yellow and white pieces on the wall are both from second hand stores. The "Anna" alphabet print is from PennnyPeople. The wall calendar (with the green horse) is from Stories by Mia.

Little loves. Sheets and quilt from Land of Nod.

Along the window is the low yellow shelf that was found at an estate sale ($10) and in the background is the yellow dresser that was used as her changing table in the old house.

Original elephant art by Mati Rose. The "A" was a gift purchased in New Zealand. The little bird is from Cabin + Cub. The print of the woman reading was a gift from my Mom.

A spinning book shelf that I picked up at the Coburg Antique Fair last year.

The awesome poms were used for her first birthday party and are from Pom Love.

Happy little girl.

I read in the paper yesterday that there's a Komen Race for the Cure event here in Eugene this Sunday. I signed up to run the 5K and started a little fundraising page with a $1000 goal. I know there are many of you out there who have faced breast cancer head on - some of you I've even had the pleasure of meeting and hugging in person. Here's to those of you fighting this disease, to those who have passed on, to the loved ones who put one foot in front of the other each day, and here's to finding a cure!

    "Pink little girl's room" are words that often fill me with dread. This is lovely - not a drop of pageantry, and heaped with books! Gorgeous, thanks for sharing!

    Hi Ali! Love Anna's new room and color schemes are so beautiful. She is growing so pretty. She really looks like you a lot.

    I'm writing you with a maybe weird question! Just yesterday we found out we are having the blessing of being pregnant with a little girl. We have 2 boys ages 5 and 4 and now our 3rd (surprise) is the GIRL! Anyway, I LOVE the colors and clothing that Anna uses. I was wondering what do you do with the clothes she has grown out of? If you are keeping for a 3rd one I understand, but if you ever want to sell it, let me know. I will be more than happy to buy from you.

    Thanks for sharing your creativity and life with us. Enjoy your new home and your family.
