On Saturday morning we met at Spotlight to find some material befitting to the girls’ apartment.

We chose this bright and dainty paisley print to contrast against the pink and white:

Last week there was a slight issue with the placement of the frame on the wall:

As I politely pointed out, we are not dealing with giraffes – though I’d not be apposed to a pet giraffe if you’re offering – but rather girls, and teeny tiny ones at that. And so out came the screws and down came the frame. = )

We lowered the window to its new position and I traced the inside of the frame with pencil onto the wall, in readiness to paint a some sky.

I used acrylic paints diluted with a little water.

Sunday morning...

I was up freakishly early for a Sunday (6.30am... ridiculous). After ducking out for croissants I returned home and slapped on a second coat of blue sky. My mum is a bit of a whiz on the ol' sewing machine and was already at work on the curtains, which still need to be hemmed. So here's where things are at right now:

Meanwhile, inside the house... the Sylvanian Families are gonna have to have a little clean up before the girls come over.

I bags being decorator.
