Okay, trying not to cry here. Y'all may have to hold me together in August. For now, I'll enjoy the excitement of shopping for her dorm room.
We found a beautiful duvet set at Target, part of their Simply Shabby Chic line. It's white and lacy. This photo doesn't show detail. But you can see it by clicking here.
She plans to decorate with colorful pillows. We found this beautiful soft pink square one.
And a round white lace pillow--that's actually called a Petticoat pillow. :)
Now she's deciding on another accent color--choosing between yellow and aqua. Haven't found just the perfect one yet (the Target website lists over 1300 decorative pillows!!). Besides, she needs to pick out sheets first.
Here's a quick shot (sorry it's a little dark) of the items we have so far. At least you can see how gorgeous the pink is.
We also looked at prom shoes…a GAZILLION pairs of prom shoes. But she ended up deciding she liked her homecoming shoes (that she wore this year AND last year--yes!) better and will wear them again. Nice for saving money--but I had told her to do that before we spent all the time shopping! LOL (I couldn't get a photo to download, but if you'd like to see her princess shoes, click here.)
The last stop we made to look for pillows was at Kirkland's. She loves that place. I found some really fun items and snapped some photos to share…
I really wanted to buy Sweet as a Peach. I may yet go back and do so. :)
All fun for the Belle. :)
I also loved this…
And we bought this! This is the closest I'm getting to cooking today. :) It smells amazing.
And here's one last item we spotted as we were checking out. We had to have it.
This is her most important room accessory. Yes, I made sure she'll think of me every morning when she has her coffee. :)
Any tips for dealing with empty nest syndrome?
