For years I've been wanting a playroom for my girls.. for YEARS! And now we have one! If you've been following my blog for a while you're sure to recognize many of the pieces in the pictures below. (And might I add that I think my minimalist husband is pretty happy that I held onto these said pieces even though he wanted me to get rid of many of them over the years. Mother knows best, right?! hehe)
Here's the entrance to the room...

I love the fireplace! The bunting is from my sister's wedding reception. :)
I wanted a colorful place for the girls to play...
and this vintage quilt is the perfect addition! I initially bought it to hang on the wall but discovered it fit the back of the couch perfectly. All I did was tuck the edges of the quilt into the creases of the couch.
Isn't it a gorgeous quilt? I mean, how long did it take the lady who made it to make it?! I think it's from the 30's. I'm so happy I found it.
I'm also happy I found this cute hand-embroidered pillow at Camas Antiques in Camas, WA. $6! Score.
Our Strawberry Shortcake house is happy in its new spot!
And so are the dolls. And the kitchen we've had for 6 years!
Yep, we still have the felted cookies! Going on 4 years. Not too shabby, eh? :)
These bookshelves were already here when we bought the house. LOVE.
Our books needed these shelves!
So did the Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. :) (Yes, she is a puppet and stores all the little animals in her tummy. I found her in Ashland, Oregon about 6 years so. The girls love her!)
These 'life cycle' creatures were purchased at Michael's. I'm really happy with their quality.
See the ABC paintings? My mom made them for me when I was a baby. Awwww.
A great little toy/game shelf...
You know how we love acorns and squirrels, right? When I spotted this little oak tree growing in our backyard I dug it up and planted it for our room.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing our little playroom! Many giggles and smiles are born in this happy room.
Thanks for taking a look!
