The Generational Room for Lynsey

Lynsey is getting her first room of her own....ever.....
 Uncle Brian and Aunt Emily painted it her favorite color, purple.  Family pass downs galore.
The cat hanger on the wall is from Aunt Emily's childhood;
 the needlepoint chair from Great-grandma.
The side table from her father's childhood room..
Dolly bed from Aunt Brandy.
Quilt 16 patch stitched by yours truly of some Liberty prints
 brought by Cousin Ann from London.
Even Anna Marie Horner visited with the bird fabric above the bed.
 Her baby quilt made by Grandma here..
 My bean lamp from wine jug of my hippie years, still bug free.
Check out the bottles of "spider spray" to be sure nary a spider 
reaches her new pony sheets.
Thanks to Aunt Emily and her essential oils..
Great-great Grandma's chest of drawers with the quilt basket hanging
 made by Aunt Charmaine years ago.
Book cases from Great-Grandma's place.
 Uncle Brian helps Evan assemble the IKEA bed for sister Lynsey.
Small joys making a big impact; family working together to make it happen.

I'm so happy she has a little space of her own! She must be thrilled. It all beautiful and full of meaning, but, gosh, that 16 patch, wow!

It feels like a celebration of love!! So many special touches in every corner. And her personality will burst forth within it and add even more flavor to the space What a wonderful gift of togetherness and family.
