You and me. This past year when I’ve looked at your face I’ve seen mine. Not mine now, but mine then. Chipmunk cheeks, a gap-toothed grin, freckles sprinkled across a button nose. It’s strange and amazing to look at the kid you never saw in the mirror.

Kid's rooms | La La Lovely

Paint can make such a difference, right?  In kid’s rooms it can add a lot of pizzazz (I like to say that word, but typing it, it looks like pizza, anyways) or shall we say interest.

I’m a sharing a four creative ways to use paint kid’s rooms.

Yes, of course you can use it on the walls.  But that doesn’t mean it has to be conventional.  That is the thing I love most about decorating kid’s rooms, being conventional is not a good idea, being creative is.  So if you are using paint on the walls why not only paint part of the wall?  Or perhaps a corner in a geometric design?  I love this fresh concept pictured above.

While the next paint idea is a bit of a throw back, it’s not a bad one when . . .

kid's books | La La Lovely

I like children’s books.  Love them, really.  So much so, I attempted to write one, before there was a blog.  Who knows, maybe one day, some day, I’ll dust off those pages and try to do something with it.

Children’s books are just magic.  I love the magic.  The story.  The pictures.  The imagination.  The anything is possible.  The animals talking.  The people flying.

Rainy Day Ideas via La La Lovely Blog

We’ve been on summer break for a good two weeks and it’s rained a lot.  And, when I say a lot, I mean I’m questioning as to whether or not we live in Seattle or the south of England.  But,  since there is no sea on either side of me, I’m quite assured I’m right smack dab in the middle of corn field country still.

Giant puddles pooling everywhere and we haven’t even, really used our pool yet.  Other then a few, “uh, I fell in with my clothes on,” situations.   Which are explained as, “I know you are not going to let me swim right now, but this always works!”

Yesterday I had blogging and a bootie workout on my agenda, but the kids were bored and so we pulled out board games.  I’m not a big games person.  I didn’t really grow up playing games, and I think that has a lot do with it (do you find this true about you?  like or dislike?).

Games or no games, I got thinking about what we like to do when the weather isn’t so winsome….
