Spring Has Sprung In My Girls' Room: A Reveal and a GIVEAWAY!

Well, I have been busy around here trying to finish another room so that I can give you something original to look at.  

I owe  a BIG thanks to

**This GIVEAWAY has ended and a winner has been chosen**

for asking me to help them with a Giveaway.  They have been very patient with me and it was just the push I needed to get the girls' room finally finished this past weekend.  So without further ado...my girls' room...





 My Step-Mom, Peggy, made the curtains, bed ruffles, throw pillows with each of the girl's names and the duvet covers.  She is so talented.  Love all the details that she put on the pillows and bedding, don't you?



 The quilts, round pillows and pillow shams are 
Cynthia Rowley from TJ Maxx.
 The antique kitten pictures are so special.  This one was given to my MIL when she turned 9 years old.  I found another one from the same artist in our local antique mall.  You can see it below...
This is the stencil I  chose for the room.  It is the Allium Grande.  I painted the stem myself with a sponge brush.  This was so easy to do...it took me about 20 minutes for each allium.   I think they add a lot to the room.  I used tape, acrylic paint and a sponge brush.


The paper lanterns in the corner of the room are from Hobby Lobby.



Love this little Penelope Peapod...do you have one of these? 
Every little girl needs one...



 Here is the other kitten print.
Yes, that is a little grasshopper on the glass.



 A few of our Russian treasures.




So what do you think?
 



I am linking up to these fun blog parties this week!

Oh Kristine!!! This room is absolutely gorgeous! You did such an amazing job and the stencils look incredible. They add the perfect extra touch to the room and the bedding too is so fantastic...and the lanterns...and the lamp post light. Did you make that? I love it! Well done my friend!

P.S. We are working with Cutting edge right now too so I won't be entering the giveaway. ;-)
