Bonkers for Bunting!

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 18 - 2013

Just a quick one this morning before I head out for the day because I wanted to show you the ridiculously cute crocheted bunting that my lovely friend Row from Cosmetic Candy sent me.

Isn’t it adorable?  Clever bitch.

When we were fixing up Leila’s room, we asked her what theme she wanted. I was desperate for her to say something like “circus” or “wild west” so I could get my OHP out and start tracing on the walls.

Alas, the decision proved too hard for her and she couldn’t commit so we ended up going with “colourful” instead.

She was keen on one of those over-the-bed canopies you can get from IKEA but as you can see, anything like that would have blocked a large portion of light from the window. When we extend her toddler bed into a full-size single (and move it away from the window), her wish will be granted but as a stop-gap, we went with bunting.

Lots and lots of bunting!

Did you have a themed bedroom when you were a child?

    Hero? Ninja! This is what happens when you get too excited and have the theme tune running through your head as you type.
