Little Lulu's French Themed Bedroom

As  you know,
if you are a regular follower,
(and by regular
 I am not talking bathroom
habits here if you get my drift)
we had a special French themed
birthday party for 
Lulu at my house last week.
If you missed it you can see
it here.

She had no idea about the 
party because the day before
her Mom surprised her
with a makeover for her room.
She moved into the guest room
across from her sisters' room.
It was all ready for her.
She went out for the afternoon
and when she came home
this is what she saw...
The colors are black and pink
and silver.
Three sweet little chandeliers
hang over this area.
Her bed was dressed with
some stenciling.
And decked in new bedding
in black and white and silver.
Are you awake, sleepy head?
A cube to hold  her treasures.
Mirrors and more~
Her Auntie Mimi painted this
special old window sash
using the Eiffel Tower
for the A in her name.
Lulu wrapped one of the boas
from her birthday party around it
to hold onto the memory
of a fun day.

Is she one lucky little girl...or what?
ha-made you tip your head sideways,
didn't I?
I knew I could!!!!

Ummm...just a reminder...
4 months until Christmas

What an original idea for a young lady! Like it that she can have this design for quite a while! Love the name plaque. Like the chandeliers too....love the room, what the heck?

That is so cool! I want that room! What a lucky girl...I know she is going to love that room for a long, long time. I think she might have some little visitors every now and then from across the hall...
