A Room With a View...

The little guys room is really coming together. This weekend my friend Rhonda and her friend Tina came north to the thriving metropolis that is Croswell. You've heard mention of Rhonda before -- she "makes the blog" frequently and will likely be traveling on trip 1 (and hopefully part of trip 2) with me. Both Tina and Rhonda are quite creative (although Rhonda will tell you otherwise about herself) and take AMAZING pics. If you are a flickr fan - look them up:

Tina worked her magic in the little guys room and recreated the jungle creatures from the $8 comforter set. I really loved the color of that room (Behr paint "Fresh Praline"!) as it was in it's original state -- and was hoping to keep it. Well Rhonda and Tina agreed - and Tina's artwork totally brings everything together. I LOVE IT! Here's some various shots of the room and comforter. The challenge is that it's a very SQUARE room -- and not the biggest (old 1950s house), so it's hard to take pictures that capture a big amount of space! Enjoy...

It's looking great! The animals painted on the wall are adorable. Fingers crossed you'll have a little man to enjoy it soon!

I LOVE the room! It looks fantastic! And how nice of the kitty to lend a paw in the whole process!

What awesome friends you have! It's so nice of Roo to really pitch in and help. I can see a bead of sweat crossing that furrowed, furry brow. It's a tough job but someone has to do it! The room looks glorious! Tamara

Hi! I just hopped onto your blog from the Adoption forum. How exciting that your dossier is in Vladivostok! We were there last year and had a great experience in the region. We are currently in the process for #2 and are hoping to return to Vladivostok. If you have any questions about the region, please feel free to e-mail me at shoesinks@yahoo.com. I also sent you an e-mail to get into my blog if you want. Oh, and great job on the room preparation!
