A Little Girls Purple Room

Welcome to my Purple Monday.  I am joining Little Red House for mosaic Monday and Melinda at Alabaster Rose Designs for Vintage Summer Monday's.  You might want to take a minute and check out all the other mosaics and vintage Monday's. 

I am going to give you a peak into my daughter Arden's room. I repainted her room last year and she picked out PURPLE because it is one of her favorite colors.

Even though she is 6 now, Arden still lets me hang some of her dresses from when she was just a toddler.

As some may have noticed from previous posts, I have quite a collection of vintage quilts. Arden has a couple of quilts with PURPLE in them.

Arden's vintage iron bed is one of my favorite flea market finds.

Her favorite book is Pinkalicious

Here is a funny story my daughter will remember forever.  One day Arden and I were making Pinkalicious cupcakes when there was an emergency at my mother-in-laws home three houses down.  My youngest son, only a baby and was sleeping so I didn't want to wake him.  Also during this time we were building an addition onto our home.  The contractor Mark, a friend of my brothers, thankfully said he would stay in the house and watch the kids.  Well it ended up as no problem at my mother-in-laws and I came find Mark the contractor up to his elbows in PINK frosting, he was helping my daughter frost the Pinkalicious cupcakes.  Needless to say Mark and all of the workers were treated to Pinkalicious cupcakes that day and they ate them up Pink and all.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my daughter's Purple room.  Have a wonderful day!
