Ah, from the mouths of babes....

The living room was a mess, toys scattered all over the floor... Father to son: "C'mon, Alex, lets pick up all these toys and put them in the basket!". Son answers, while still very comfortably sitting on the sofa: "You're a big guy, you can do it all by yourself..." Hum, I wonder if he has heard that expression way too many times! When Alex was 3, I was trying to put him to sleep, but he was very restless... So, remembering that I used to sing to all my three girls when they were little, I suggested: "How about if I sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star?!!". He turned to me and said:" How about... NO!!!"
I wanted to share with you a project I've been working on... I've been collecting vintage pink girtles and camisoles for a while, now, and couldn't figure out how to display them! So, I decided to make them into a valance in the master bathroom! For now, they are just hanging on the molding, but I would like to figure out a better way to do it... Any suggestions?

I wanted to thank everyone for leaving me such sweet comments for my debut...!! Wow, it is amazing how I can instantly feel the love!! I am honored that you come to visit and I already know this is going to be great fun!!


  1. Tie each side with a lovely satin ribbon to hang. A spray of vintage millinery here and there would be the perfect touch. Ooh la la!

    Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

  2. Isabel, I don't have a suggestion as to how to hang your girdle and camisole collection...if I was there, bet I could come up with something though. Sounds like Aleta's suggestion is pretty good. I did want to say, however, that I think you are very imaginative to have come up with this idea...who would have thought? I love that bloggers seem to use everything!!! Looking forward to even more...Pat at birdnestontheground
