Re-do on a "She's 21 Now" Room....

With my daughter growing up so fast, but still in College at Auburn, her bedroom becomes that place of transformation for me. I have watched the High School cheerleader become the ZTA sorority leader and then the ZTA wants to turn into a beautiful young lady. The young lady who wants to start developing her own taste while her mother still commands the bedroom while she is away. The struggle of Mom wanting some of the child to remain while the daughter wants the childish ways to be behind her and the woman to delightfully bloom ahead! What a struggle. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy seeing my daughter grow up. I have grown up to be just like my mother and I see her doing just the same! She has picked up so many of my traits and habits, many I wonder if I have forced upon her.... But the one characteristic that she did get from me that enables her to deny any forced habit.... STUBBORNNESS!
And I guess that is what makes Whitney, Whit!
Today I share with you her room or maybe I should say our room....The new sheets I ordered from Cath Kidston....
Thanks to the Farm Chicks for recommending them!
I will show you her bed made up together with the sheets next week!Who would have ever thought this would have looked good together??? PART of her bottle collection....
I started one when I was very young also... But I crawled under old houses to get mine!

Beautiful Blue Bottles... I love them!

I won't say much about this collection.....
Auburn University Plate (When Auburn wins a tree is covered with TP on Toomers Corner),
A frame that I made with a picture of Whit and a guy that never made it as a boyfriend,
Papa's hat, Angels, Pictures of friends
Lighting for her room and her grandmother's painting and a friend's painting.
Grouping from Pottery Barn with Whit's pictures in it
Whit's Brown Transferwear
Whit loves to antique, goodwill and thrift! She did get that from me! YEAH!!
I hope you enjoyed this post! It was a little different for me!

So beautiful. I can't believe you have a 21 year old. You barely look 21 : ).
