Its A Wee Petal Wonderland!

I promised a style post on Princess Wee Petal. Lets start with her Christmas style!We decided on a pink candylicious sort of theme!

The main display goes on her pink dresser inherited from her big sister(as is much of her furniture).

The lamps are thrifted from my single days I sprayed them baby pink and stripped their shades off and added big round clear bulbs.

I feel very affectionately attached to these little angels and reindeer.I hope my wee one will always have fond memories of these treasures.

Pixies,elves ,reindeer ,and Santas...

and more pixies,elves,reindeer,and Santa's!

I even stock the "pantry" with toy Christmas dishes every year.

For impromptu tea parties.

Hmmm...whats on the menu?

Clarice(wheres her bow?)and a pink reindeer get to play!

An animated angel stands guard at the foot of her bed!

....and back to Wee Petal style. A vintage quilted Chinese coat and other jackets embellished with vintage textiles (by mommy!),and a seasonal purse.

If my oldest baby Crooked Halo is my budding actress,then my little Wee Petal is my budding visual artist. Oh yes,she has her own "studio",a place to create her little Burton-esque people.

Though there are definitely times she takes her need to draw on every surface too far....and now she's WRITING too!
Just in case you are wondering, red Sharpie(I know ,how did she get that?) on the door does not come off with bleach! Time to paint the door!

...and now for a head to toe shot. Smile with your eyes baby!I love how with little kids nothing matches but everything goes together. Vans,vintage,ruffles ,Julius,and Clarice!

Bye Bye Betty

I feel a little sad at the passing of Betty Page.
She seemed to make the art of being a pinup girl wholesome....and I will never forget those bangs!
Bye bye Betty.

...and so it begins..... decorating that is! This blow up 60's Santa is probably my fave new x-mas decor,grabbed from an estate sale for under a dollar!

I always seem to do up my mantel 1st!

The "before" of my X-mas tree! Click here for the "after"!

Close up views of the mantel. I am really into these pointy tree topper thingie's this year,but not as tree toppers!


Once upon a time I crafted decoupage frames for my girls Santa pics!

Yes,ghosts of Christmas crafts past!
This year I bought all 3 of us girls matching Nick and Nora PJ's from Target for Christmas morning! We could not wait to try them out! Stay tuned for more X-mas escapades in Pagoda-ville!
