It's a New Year.
We are going to kick the New Year off by showing you some of Freckles room. Her Happy place. A place where she dreams, writes, reads, and creates. Writing for her really began a little over a year ago with the vintage Royal typewriter she received for her birthday. Her mind was filled with words, ideas and stories. She has been an avid reader for some time, which naturally grew into making up her very own stories. She has been working on a series since she got that typewriter. She loves the romance of the clacking of the keys and the ding at the end of the page as she grabs hold of the return, the page moves up and she continues on. She can do this for hours. She started a blog of her own recently which I shared a couple posts back. She named it:
It will be a nice place for her to share her dreams and stories, the books she reads, her inspirations, thoughts and more. I just think it's quite precious really.
She wanted me to share her room with you as she will also be sharing these pictures on her blog as well. So we took pictures, for you all. For Christmas all she really wished for were books, journals, paper, pens, storage containers, calendar/ planner, a book bag and pajama pants. I found some really cute stuff at Target, Daiso, Michael's and Beverly fabrics. We got her some bins and organizer trays etc. for her closet and desk....Which she has been putting everything away in.
I made her this fabric pouch, which she loved...Notice the cute glasses zipper pull....She is storing some of her journals and smaller paper pads inside. her pens, pencils, markers and doodads are now stored away nicely...
Last Summer we bought two of these blue carts from Ikea for her to use as little library carts for her books. She feels she needs another one. It has been perfect for her to roll around wherever she chooses. Someday I hope to get her a real book cart, but they are kinda pricey...So these will do. My Sister sent her a nice Christmas package with books, a sonic screwdriver Doctor Who pen and this fun library card kit. A fun gift for the reader who may loan a book out...
She has been collecting these pretty hard bound leather and fabric books from Barnes & Noble and Amazon...All paid for by herself with her baby sitting money.
I surprised her with this large painting which I did as one of her Christmas gifts. The portrait depicts her with books and a typewriter...All in colors of her bedroom and a sweet quote from The Book Thief. ( We also took her to see The Book Thief movie as a Christmas gift) We loved it. She reallly loves the painting. I must say I think it looks pretty darn cute in her room too.
Remember I mentioned how she wanted a book bag? She designed the bag on paper and i made it for her in all these sweet fabrics that have to do with reading and writing. Another hit...We were on a roll for giving her something she would really love.
More organizing going on here with all her papers, folders and notebook/journals.
A place for everything, Everything in it's place.
We also got her those cute cardboard boxes with lids to hold
her Smash Book/crafty/scrap booking supplies. Everything looks so nice and tidy.
This is where you will find her on almost a daily basis...
Here writing or in her bed cuddled in her ghanny afghan reading for hours with a nice hot cup of tea. This is her happy place...Hope you enjoyed her space...Perhaps she will be a sweet inspiration to young girls her age...Or even you.
Thanks for stopping in.
Happy New Year.
