So before I post any pictures I want to give a little back-history on why my family most likely did this project. My sisters, mom, and I have fallen in love with this little store in Eureka Springs called Something Simple. It is in this little Victorian house and everything in the store is homemade, antique white-washed, or old fashioned and beautiful. When you walk up the stairs in this little shop you walk into the most precious little white bedroom that belongs in a magazine or old movie.
I realized after Aubree and I left that momma would need some projects to keep her occupied. She has cleared a lot of the brush that is next to our house and has planted so many flowers and gardens that it is absolutely beautiful and you feel like you walked into the Secret Garden. I knew she was keeping busy with Sarah and the little house, the vegetable garden, and painting some "things" but I had no idea what she and my sisters had been doing while I have been away! After I got home the other day we walked around the yards and through Sarah's little house before we made it back to the house. I had thought something was up because mom and Sarah kept whispering back and forth all the way back from Tulsa. When we walked upstairs I saw some of my furniture displayed out in the hallway and was thinking, "What? Why is my dresser and nightstand in the hallway?" and mom just looked at me with this smile. So I opened my door and saw THIS!
Before, my room had been a classic brown with cream trip. I had only decorated with some guitars and it was pretty much just an average room. But NOT ANYMORE!
I can't even describe in words how blessed I feel to have had such a home warming welcome and I feel so loved by my family. I can't get enough of all the little details they went through to make everything so perfect and precious for me. Aubree also took out everything in my closet and organized everything! She made a new bookshelf in my closet and it feels like I have my own personal library now! I mean, who's family does this!? Apparently mine and I never want to take them for granted EVER!
Thank you guys so much for the wonderful surprise!
