I took kind of a hiatus from decorating for a while. There are other things that come up, and the house is always there waiting whenever I decide to make her a little prettier.
I've spoken of my love of Pinterest before. It runs deep. I've found a few things that I absolutely want to use in our house. The first was an awesome wall stencil.
With some help from the husband, I created my own stencil. Then I traced the small wall in my kitchen and painted, painted, painted.
This was the start. I first painted every other column of stenciling. I had fantasies of painting different colors between the gray. In the end, I went with one column of yellow and left the rest gray.
Edit: You can find the link to the stencil here.

If Lloyd Christmas had a daughter, she would have Sylvia's current haircut. Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating a little. For those of you drawing a blank:
Anyway, we were to the point that we pretty much had to do this in order to keep her hair out of her eyes.
I decided it was time to chop those bangs. And like all first haircuts should be, it was kind of awful.
|Ok, this one just made me laugh.|
Anyway, Sylvia doesn't seem to mind, so I think I did alright. Her hair can still do this:
On second thought, I'm not sure if that's a good thing...
