one july day



 my daughter put on her blue dress





and decided it was time to
wallpaper her room
so we measured, cut
and hung bits of
wallpaper I had collected over the years
to make her a patchwork wall 

it was a very pretty work day
and the end results are adorable

Sending you a
happy Summer's day
with hopes that you have found your own
happy place
{it is hard to believe that August is almost here }

OH HOW YOU ROCK MY BLUE BOAT....I have a little blue dress similar in style, but without a pattern. I love this dress, and have only had maybe three occasions so far this summer to wear it. Maybe it's time for a photo shoot of me!!!!!!!!

What a great idea....a patchwork wall. Oh Koralee, what will you and your family think of NEXT! Hugs to all my dear friend, Anita

very creative .. so much like her mamma!!

I love that idea.. I first say it this spring when I was at Chaps restaurant in Spokane (www.chapsgirl.com).. it's an old farmhouse .. upstairs eating area has the wonkie ceilings that angle down ..love that!.. and she took awesome bohemian papers from World Market and wall papered bits of the wall where she had art work ... FABulous!!!

Hi Koralee.. what a cute daughter, lovely dress and fun project!! I'd love to see the finished room. I know it seems like summer is racing along.. we go camping in 10 days or so. And then.. fall. EEK! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

A patchwork wall! Brilliant!
If every woman should have a little black dress, I belived that every girl should own a cut blue one...:)
