when miss m was a baby
i put all of her clothes in shelves
on top of a desk
in her closet so that they were
at parent height...
now that she is three
& has fallen off countless tipsy things trying
to reach her own clothes
her mother finally got the memo:
put my shelves on the floor so i can reach them.
never one to take a
redecorating/rearranging opportunity lightly
i had an idea in my head
& so tuesday miss m & i started working on her room
(read: i worked,
she had a tea party with her trillions of stuffed animals)
she is beyond girlie
so i just get to flower & butterfly & pink out as much as i want to...
i moved the shelves out of her closet
(side note: i hate dressers,
they are the bermuda triangle of furniture...
if my kids want one when they are older
they are totally welcome to get one
but until then
we are all about open shelving, baby)
so with the clothes outside of the closet
what on earth could go inside it?
(side note two:
our closets are HUGE
they are dreamy to me...
i have considered making one into
a craft room, except there are no windows
& you would be totally closed off from everyone...
wait is that a plus or a minus?)
don't be silly!
welcome to miss m's dress up closet o' fun...
i think she likes it...
ps i just wanted to mention that pretty much everything
in this closet is that good old fashioned mix of
goodwill & garage sales & hand me downs...
& my best 'building an awesome dress up wardrobe' tip:
buy the weirdest stuff you see.
you will always be able to find
a tutu or a cowboy hat
but an m&m costume comes around only every once in a while
& you'll be so sad if you walk away from those
paisley fringed bell bottoms...
