Madeline's "Alice in wonderland" furniture

The inspiration for these two pieces was a book from the 50's!! I had fun painting these...
they were a bit of a challenge when it came to taking apart the book rack and then getting it put back together....ask Emily. lol

{the way my desk appeared for a majority of the day}

Today was another one of those days...
i have good intentions of getting a lot done, but, am slightly unmotivated and considering the lack of caffeine (decaf for me and baby) and fatigue caused by these always changing pregnancy hormones...
I'm lazy.
enough said.
Tomorrow is a new day...
and tomorrow i WILL accomplish more than i did today.

Love it!!

...Couldn't help myself......Isn't she a DOLL??!!
