an ordinary day


Staring out the window, she waits patiently.


The older sisters gone for the day. Counting the minutes until they return. So much to tell.


Up early, she carefully chooses a pretty dress. Next, the accessories. The importance of just the right color hair bow cannot be understated. Dressed to her satisfaction, she literally twitches with excitement. We're off to meet her new teacher and shyly size up potential friends.

The icing on the proverbial cake, a trip to the dance store. Pale pink leather ballet shoes of her very own, for her 'Intro to Ballet' class. A tiny leotard, tights, and diaphanous pink ballet skirt complete the ensemble.

Re-styled miniature work table for Rosie's projects, complete. A spot to ponder, day dream and create. A conference table fit for a pint sized 'big girl'.

Oilcloth bought by the bolt, Vogue Fabrics.
Vintage table, Tag Sale find.
Rainbow chairs, Ikea.

Darling, darling, darling!! I love the table and chairs!!! How fun that you will have a tiny dancer in your house. My Josie will be starting dance on September 17th. I actually found her a pink super-girl leotard. She fights "girly" anything but was excited because it has a gold supergirl symbol.

What little girl wouldn't love the table and chairs?! You have made them so fun and special. I had little girls too, now in college, I miss the grade school days and those little girls. But I love the women they have become:>)
