A room to call her own

Betsy's little room has been such a work in progress!  We're in a rented house, far away from home sweet Seattle.. and far away from the comforts of home decorating (my favorite stores & fremont sunday market!!).  When we moved to Houston, I left behind all of my favorite things.  I don't know why.. I think it was because I knew that I would eventually come back to them, and seeing them in their perfect little places would make me feel like I was HOME again.

But that was a dumb idea.  Because now I'm far away, and I miss my stuff.  My vintage suitcases that I fill with christmas ornaments.... my collection of white ironstone.... my favorite and totally cheap spatula (I can't find the same one and it's driving me mad).

Anyway, the one room here that I really wanted to get right was Betsys.  She is almost two and I'm sure she couldn't care less... but I tackled this room first.  I mean, how could you resist pleasing this face??

Everything was done and fine, but one wall remained.  I couldn't find anything that I liked for it, so last night I made my own little masterpiece (errr, pieces).

I started with five "butt ugly" frames, as my mom would say....

        Then I got a little crafty
      and a little messy
   and here's what I came up with

I also added this cute little hook combo that I found (on another wall)
The americana print is from my husband's childhood home

every girl needs a place to hang her hat
