Looky what the mail man brought . . .

Oh, yeah - I got it!!
See it?? Not the table, but that - see it?
The Tassel!! AHHHH - L-O-V-E it!!! It is soooo perfect that it's ridiculous!
Check her out - isn't she too cute? Look, I even pulled out another piece of furniture just to hang her on!! I'm not kidding - I had this night stand in the closet!! I wasn't going to pull it out until I had something cute to put on top. Well, there isn't anything on top - but there is something incredibly cute on the knob of the drawer {same thing in my book!} I even found her a bird cage {one of those hilarious and tacky things my mother-in-law gave me!! It actually has a tiny bird that chirps and twitches when you wind up the bottom! It came from my summer home - you know the Biltmore! Okay - just kidding - it's not "my home" for those who didn't know I was joking - haha - but the cage did come from there!} And I seriously carried my lunch in that basket when I was in the 4th - 5th - 6th grade!! Every day!! Isn't that funny - NOT a lunch box - a basket! And you can also see some of my books from back in the day! I'm afraid they are considered "vintage" now! How sad - just another reminder that I'm aging!

I will eventually show this room in it's entirety ONCE that poor baby gets a painting {or 2} on the wall - but not until then!

Now - go get you one {or more!} of those cute tassels - Tell her Kim sent ya'!!

OKAY - as promised for Andrea - just a little "sneaky peeky" -
Now, I'm going to have to explain - the paint is still wet & those beads are just sitting there - just know that this one will have quite a bit of embellishments! Is it killing you? I probably just made it worse! Oh well, maybe tomorrow you will see the whole thing!!
