Ingrid's room is the first (and only) room done in the house. Turns out I didn't even need to make anything for it, her old curtains go well, the paint is a good color, and she's obsessed with her current blankie so why make another one she might not use? I had grand visions of putting up shelves and other things on the wall but we have that rock hard plaster, so I bent about ten nails trying to hang the banner and decided to nix the shelves. We put up a simple plastic shelving unit instead, and it works just as well.
I did manage to get some things hung up, including the banner I had wanted to make. These things are so freakin' cute, I just love how it turned out. I was inspired by the vintage pillowcase I had, and found some matching fabrics in my stash. The other day it was pouring down rain and Ingrid played in her playroom and I sewed and it was wonderful!
Here are her Dutch and German things. The little house was at one time a barometer, and depending on the weather either the lady or the man would pop out of the house! And of course I have her little wooden shoes there, she's got a little collection going now.
I just love how the light comes in and the trees are right there by the window. There is something so calming about her room. It's very simple and there isn't a lot of stuff in it. I need to take that idea and bring it in the other rooms of the house, as they are all filled with crap right now! One box at a time, we're getting there.
