Madisyn and Lyza - Room Makeovers! the girls are getting new room makeovers again this year. Madisyn picked aqua and lime green! So...I went ahead and got some of her things while she was gone, because there was an awesome deal on an 11 pc set at Bed, Bath and Beyond! More for a college student...but I couldn't pass it up! Comforter, Sheet Set plus pillowcases, two shams, lime fleece throw blanket, dry erase board, aqua clothes hamper, etc. I found matching rugs at Target for like 3.00 each also, and a few accent curtains. The only thing left to do is put up her AQUA squares that go along with the circles already on her wall, paint part of her name on the wall in Aqua and Chris and Madisyn are tackling her sitting room and painting it Aqua and lime green striped!!!! What a job and what fun for them next week. I took the liberty of going ahead and putting everything together aside from the painting (which she wanted to do...and that was FINE with this mama'!!). Also I am letting her put up the Aqua accents so that it is done how she prefers them! She will be home tomorow and I simply cannot wait for her to see her room.....and see "PuppyBear Macey" for the first time! I gave her a bath tonight and yep....2 lbs fur, 1 lb weight!! ha! It was fun....and now she looks fabulous and smells like baby powder!!!! We leave at 9:30 am to go pick her up in Louisville and I can't wait.....we are taking "PuppyBear Macey" with us of course!

Her room....back sitting room will be painted.....circles on wall will also have Aqua squares to will be redone with Aqua letters painted amongst them also!

Her New curtains....super cute...super cheap at Wally World....and the Aqua blanket on the floor I was going to use as a rug, but didn't work I used it as an accent piece!

Her Bedspread up close and personal.....Chris isn't crazy about it...but it is what she that is what she got! :-)) I personally like it! I love the bright colors!

I bought these accent placemats at Target too for 1.50...they go great to put frames on or set baskets the room a touch of color!

Her rugs I got at Target for 3.00....matched all the colors she wanted perfectly. Couldn't beat that. I put one in front of her dresser and one in front of her chest of drawers!

Now on to Miss Lyza's Room. She was supposed to be getting "LadyBugs"..but we figured she'd be in a toddler bed for a couple of years still and didn't want to invest just yet. Sooo...she got Maddy's brightly colored "hand me downs"....they were too nice and only a few years old......and they matched her Mayan things acquired from Guatemala so well! We did buy her new curtains that were the child still had sheer "Winnie the Pooh" curtains and woke up with the chickens...which was hard on poor mom!!! went the bright pink/lime colored comforter, rugs and we hung up the accent blankets that we handmade in Guatemala......then the curtains went up and it pulled it all together. We still have a few of the "colorful" circles to go on the wall to finish it up....but so far, this is what we have! It seems a big cluttered to me now because of her toys...but I guess it beats having them in the living room!!! :-))) Plus.....the "Winnie" border still needs to come off and I think because it isn't as light as it was with the sheer curtains...that is what is making it seem cluttered to me. Oh well....she's a little girl who needs her toys in her room.....and this will just have to do for now!!!! She oooohhhed and Awwwed at it, so I guess that means we did just fine!!!
Her bedroom with the new curtains and handmade Guatemalan Blanket we bought in Guatemala on her pick up trip! Priceless.....

Her little "Colorful" bed :-)

View looking in from the door.......just not used to those curtains yet...but come morning I'll be liking them!!!

This is a plaque I got at Hallmark for Madisyn's Nana and sent it to her as a Thank You gift for all she did with/for Madisyn while she was out visiting a few weeks ago!! I thought it fit her perfectly...and how true! I hope she likes it!

Blessings to everyone....and I will post more later in the week when Chris and Madisyn get their painting done....should be interesting. Wonder who will end up with the most paint on them....and wonder if those stripes will be straight or not! ha! I'm betting NOT, but don't tell them I said that!
