I have spent the last couple of months getting acquainted with Ohdeedoh, and whilst I think it's a great blog, I think it affected my sanity a little for a while there. It's a bit like constantly looking at home renovation shows or interior design magazines... you start to think that everything has to be perfect... and you start to feel that your rented, 30 year old, 2 bedroom flat isn't good enough, and that neither is any of the stuff in it. Having said that, Ohdeedoh do show lots of thrifty, secondhand, crafty type rooms too, and I started to chill out a little about the whole thing eventually, and went with that thrifty, handmade type of vibe, which due to severe budget restrictions, was the only option open to me!
Whilst it's actually a really bright, sunny room, in this super hot weather, I had to close the blinds so that the photo wasn't overexposed.
Jane, it's nice to have a different kind of doll in there.
All the dolls I put aside for whatever reason- it turns out there is a dew drop girl for every season in this stash.
The lambs are up and flying about above the change table.
And I finally managed to finish a quilt I started 3 years ago- it doesn't fit the super sized cot I bought, but it will do for other things. I have almost finished a quilt top based on this fabulous quilt I feel in love with months and months ago, I'm just worried it will take me another 3 years to complete it!
And this is me in the middle of it all. We still have the spare bed set up so that people can stay, but once she starts sleeping in there, it'll have to go.
It's all getting very close to being finished!
