I was just at Ikea yesterday and thought that that they had some great playroom decor. My friend bought the same roll out storage shelf for her son's action figures. I wish we had one closer, I always find things that I cannot stuff into a suitcase.

Beautiful and inspiring as always!

I'm your newest follower and totally got sucked into your blog! Can't even remember how I clicked over but read back quite a ways and finally told myself to just leave you a comment and close the computer. I have a hair appt or I am sure I would be here all day! Loved your comments on blog what you live, not what you blog. FAB. I haven't been posting too much lately but I would love for you to drop by...

found you through farmgirl's blog...you had me at your choice of summer reading material and vodka-infused vegetables. And just looking at your playroom revamp exhausted me and made me want both the books and the booze immediately. ;)
