Grace's little girl room remained fairly neutral in design, since it was originally decorated as a gender neutral nursery.
Of course, now I have anything but a gender neutral big girl. We've entered the phase of loving anything princess, pink and girly.
This frame, or more specifically this print, unfortunately, does not fall into the princess, pink, girly category.
I had considered removing the print and putting in a cork board to display pictures, cards or artwork but I had procrastinated. For once, my procrastination paid off because, a few weeks ago, I participated in a summer house tour event, and I found the inspiration I needed from Cedar House Ranch. Anita, the decorator and owner, shared her daughter's bedroom. Above her daughter's bed, she had hung beautiful vintage white baby gowns.
Cue the light bulb and inspiration I needed.
I dug out Grace's baby clothes and found the dress she wore for her first Christmas. This was a dress I loved then and still do now but, of course, tucked away in a box rarely gets appreciated...
Now this dress, pinned to some mat board covered in linen fabric, is proudly on display.
It's pink, girly and slightly princessy so it fits Grace's expectations. And, it brings a smile to my face that Grace's big girl room has beautiful tribute to the little girl she will always be in my heart.
