Inspiring Words

The canvas that hangs by Emely's bed serves as a reminder to her beautiful and creative soul, that we have to take risks in life in order to move forward, to learn, and to be our best. No matter what.

The second I saw it, I knew it was for her.

As a creative soul, it isn't always easy to find fulfilling work, or people that appreciate your creations. But you must be you, no matter what the world says.

Emely wasn't sure what the quote meant at first, but she got it.

The canvas came from Recovered Treasures. The cutest little store in Lake Villa Illinois. You can find Recovered Treasures on Facebook and some of their pieces are available on Craigslist. You'll always find reasonable prices and very unique pieces! They even carry a beautiful line of handcrafted jewelry by a local artist.

That about covers it for Miss Emely's room. If we do any updates in the future or we add more of her artwork I will surely share!

I hope you're all getting a great start to your week!

All the BEST!

P.S. Sometimes I want a canvas that says, "It ain't easy being cheesy"

As for the bedding; the duvet cover and shams are DKNY from Home Goods, the polka dot sheets are Ralph Lauren from Home Goods, and the quilt at the end of the bed is from JCPenney. The pillows with the Black fabric and large white polka dots I made with fabric from Jo-anne's. The small white ruffle pillows are by Cynthia Rowley and they are from Marshalls.
