Am very happy with my first Ebay purchase for the Minx’s bedroom.
I don’t particularly want her to have very babyish decor – just art and pictures which are jolly and cheerful which she can treasure over the years. She is already very fond of her ‘lady’ and likes to discuss the colours of the flowers and and her clothes and the ‘Christmas trees’.
I like it because it’s beautifully worked in cross stitch on linen which has turned slightly brown with age, and because I rather like the sentiments expressed. It’s nice to think that all the work that someone put into this will continue to be appreciated (at least by me) and I’m glad the Minx will have something old and loved in her room aside from all the plastic tat. I might have to reframe it at some point though, as the fact that the central line isn’t straight is really bugging me. (It’s tough being a Virgo).
Unlike my agonies of indecision about the main living and dining room, the scheme for the Minx’s bedroom is crystallizing apace in my mind and packages are arriving from various online shops at frightening speed. I’ll put a bunch of pictures up together so you can see how it’s coming along when I get a moment.
In the meantime think green and pink, flowers and frog princes.
