Yesterday was a fun fun day for Miss Vivi and I. About a month after my photo shoot for Romantic Country back in February, Fifi O'Neill contacts me again to tell me that Cottage Style is interested in shooting Vivian's nursery. Of course Im beyond THRILLED! Vivi's nursery is a combo of EVERYTHING I love! When I found out 2 1/2 years ago that we were adopting her I wasted no time getting busy decorating her nursery. It needed to be pink, have lots of bunnies, roses, a vintage cottage "look" and of course be super girlie! I feel like a part of her room is MY room as well. She has a beautiful collection of artwork from sooo many of my blog artist friends Jenny Heid, Kris Hurst, Lori Karla, Natasha Burns, Cheryl Dack, Laurie Duncan,Lisa Kettell and many more that I was so honored and happy that they would want to take pics of her sugary whimsical room to share with it's readers!
I snapped a few photos of the "behind the scenes".

Last week I received a BIG surprise box from Suze Persechino of Junque Drawer Chick. Gaaaaaa!!!! Im thinking "What did I do to deserve this? LOL!!!" I was totally overwhelmed!!! Suze gifted me with a box of storybook dolls for me to use in my artwork, the most precious vintage baby book. Here's a peek inside.

It such a treat to be able to hang out with Fifi and "talk shop" and get the fun scoop on upcomming shoots, and beautiful projects. Dan is such a cool laid back guy to work with and makes the shoot fun and NOT stressful. 😉 He even has a GREAT eye for styling!!! hee! hee! Overall, it was a fantastic shoot, and I feel like one REALLY lucky and blessed gal!!!
Wishing you all a HAPPY and creative week!!!!
