A Little of This and That

As a follow up to "It's Her Birthday", I wanted to show you the finished bed put together in
Brook and Emmy's room.
Her Daddy and Papaw worked hard to get it done on time.
Emmy's bed is on the bottom.
Brook's birthday in next month, so it only seemed right for her to get a new bed too.
A really cute way to do bunks and a little playhouse underneath too.
 How does Princess Brooke get up on her bunk, you might ask.
Well with a royal staircase, complete with carpet and a miniature hand rail, of course.
 And Mommy Olivia's favorite part...3 big storage drawers...one under each royal step.

 The "prom" dress is finished.
I wish it looked as cute on the hanger as it did on the sweet girl who will wear it.
This "prom" takes place in Texas and Mom promised to send me a picture.
She tried it on yesterday so I could measure for the hem...tea length...but I didn't think to get a picture.
You can't tell here, but it is a sheer over a taffeta sweetheart strapless bodice.
The skirt is a sheer over taffeta. It is really full (doesn't look like it here). I think it ended up about 120 inches around before I gathered it.
She will were a petticoat to make it stand out some too.
 Oh my! Terrible color, but a big taffeta bow is in the back with long streamers.
I am so happy to have it done, and the smile from the girl who will wear it and tears in her Mom's eyes made it worth the work. I confirmed what I already knew. I can make anything from a pattern, but changing it's style or fit is not easy for me.

I saved the best for last!!
Yesterday, Mr. SS brought this box in and plopped it on my cutting table.
Oh, I knew what it was.
Remember I told you I won 2 giveaways a couple of weeks ago.
After looking at the  return address, I ripped it open.
Even the cute tissue paper just said "Pam Kitty" to me.
Yep!! It is the sweet Valentines giveaway I won from Pam at Pam Kitty Morning and
Holly at Holly Holderman.
It only got cuter
and cuter. Nine fat quarters of Pam Kitty Love, big heart buttons, ric-rac, the cutest cherry suckers, and conversation hearts and little white milenary flowers tucked under the ric-rac.
And that lunch pail...well, just an amazing giveaway. Thank you Pam and Holly.
My pictures aren't very good, but you can go here and see it better.

I've got a couple of great Pinterest Tries for Thursday, so come back then.

God is Good!!
Life is Good!!

That bed IS amazing! Love the girly touches and the storage. It reminds me of the bunk beds we had built for the boys that went two different directions, but yours has an easier to navigate stairs. I like that yours isn't as high too.

Yeah for finishing your dress. Love the color and I'm sure she will look and feel pretty in it at the prom. ; )

You and Annelies are official officers in the PKM Club. Such luck ducks. Hey Pam, where can we get those suckers?

Thanks for sharing!

What great beds! Your guys did a masterful job. Love the stairs with storage. The dress is a beauty, too. Love that little lunch pail.

This has been a lovely day; I so enjoyed our time together.

Happy Sewing!

That bed is awesome! Any kid would love that but the parents too.

Love that prom dress. I'm impressed by the modesty. We've been out before and seen kids heading to the prom..they looked like they were going to the Oscar's. :)
