The Princess Sleeps Here

A few days ago Claire's room was clean, her bed was made, my camera was charged, there was space left on my memory card, the wind was blowing the right direction and all the stars were aligned. I used this opportunity to take a few pics of her room. It has always been my favorite room in the house. Before she was born I would sit in there and just think about what it would be like when she was here. I never could have imagined how much she would change my life in so many ways. When I decided to redo her nursery I wanted it to be just as special. It's my favorite place to decorate, because you really can't go wrong in a little girls room! So here it is!
Her bed
I loved this headboard! It is super nice and wasn't super expensive!! Thanks K-mart!
I found this quote from Cinderella the musical. Claire isn't exactly a Cinderella type but this quote just fits her. She is SOOO her own little person and I love it!

I found these at Target and thought they were very appropriate. My dad's company distributes magazines to stores in the Midwest and we used to have bookstores in the area. Magazines have always been part of our life and put a roof over our heads, so these were perfect!!


This was made for Claire by Alison. She used to work at the bookstore and it was such a treat to have something handmade by her! Her mom used the same pattern to cross stitch hers when she was a baby. It was such a special gift.

Claire's ceiling. Big Daddy hung the fan and did most of the rolling on the paint. I did the cutting in and the clouds. It was my first big artistic endeavor and I was rather pleased with the way it turned out!

Visiting from Kelly's Korner. I clicked on your link because I saw the name Cohen. Cohen is my son's name and I don't often see it as a first name.

Your daughter's room is just lovely, thank you for sharing!
