A sneak peek into life as Little Miss…

I embarked on a change-up of Little Miss’ room this week.  The turquoise is out and its all grey and hot pink {the colour combo I have been obsessed with for as long as I can remember}.  There is a little reading nook where a fireplace used to be over 100 years ago and shelves for the books, low enough for my one year old to reach.  Hope she likes it…I think we still have a few more months until she can tell me herself!
