It's been a while..

It's been a while since we've visited the house of Treasures past. If your new to the blog you can start here then here after that you'll want to see this one, oh and then don't forget my teeny tiny Master bedroom. Now all that's left are the kids bedrooms!


First up, the Lil' man's dinosaur cave




This tree was my first attempt ever at painting. The plan was to continue the tree up on to the ceiling but sadly..


that never happened.

A year or so after I painted it I let the Lil' Man paint his initials on the trunk to look like it was carved.

I'll have to hunt a photo of that down and add it.

Anyhow,  aren't those curtains the cutest?

I bought plain cream tab top curtains and then called up my go to friend Marcie from Everyday Blessings and told her my idea of felt dinosaur tracks as well as using part of the sheets as a tie back. She came up with the brilliant idea of using burlap to cover the tabs and add a rugged affect.
Yes she was ahead of the times!
Once they were done, I sent Mr. Treasures outside to cut down some branches to use as curtain rods.
I think it turned out fantastic!


Marcie also made the dinosaur sign above the Lil' Man's bed.
I still have it. I can't bare to part with it.


                        This house was so tiny that we had to set the computer up in the lil' man's room.

 

 I found these photos at Micheal's for a couple dollars each.


I bought the frames and matting separately.

Custom artwork for very little money!

I hung a pterodactyl with fishing wire from the ceiling,


Lousy photo,  but if you enlarge it you can see the little guy in the top left by the windows!

Across the short hallway, 



Was Lil' Red's room....


However, I'm only able to find this photo of her playing with Mommy's shoes.

So we'll have to visit her room  another day.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Aww I understand the sentiments. I still have a blue clues plaque custom made for my son when he was a tot. I too cannot bear to part with it. It also symbolizes my very first Ebay purchase! Even before Etsy *GASP*. lol

So cute... Aw Angie, I'm so bummed I didn't hook up with YOU! I was just telling that to Adrain last night after we left church... For some reason I was thinking you were near Arizona... Don't ask me where I got that? Anyhow... this is what comes from being friends with people you've never actually met. You miss little details like "Where they live!" LOL

very sweet kids rooms! Those are the hardest for me as my kids have completely different taste than I do.
