i'm getting into all sorts of trouble tonight. decorating mischief at it's finest.

my obsession with home decor began when i was eight. something about that laura ashley floral pattern. i just HAD to have it. the coordinating blue and white striped print just did it for me.

a few gallons of wallpaper glue and sweat beads later, i had the room of my dreams.

until i turned nine and became obsessed with a green and white ivy print. i just HAD to have it. and a daybed to boot. and so i got it.

i LOVED moving every year in college because it inevitably meant that i would get to redecorate something. a kitchen. a living room. my bedroom. t-r-o-u-b-l-e.

after college, gidge and i got our very own big girl apartment. complete with cherry cabinets. i was in heaven.

and so i decided to learn to sew so i could make all sorts of home decor fabulousness. i have hand sewn curtains and pillows and shams and foot runners ever since.

approximately 2x per year, i decide i simply MUST change something. a new pattern. a new accent color. something.

tonight's mischief started with this little beauty:

robin's egg paint. 4 wheels. the letter "w". and a vintage twist. cooper's big boy room is in the works.

*did i just say "big boy room"??? what i meant was "cooper's-we're-moving-to-a-new-house soon" room. shesh, they grow up so fast.

he so desperately wanted to help me pick out accent pieces but instead, "hitched his wagon to a star" and went off to the land of nod.

oh how i love that little boy.

bill, i have you to thank for this obsession. and "thank you", i do :)
