DSC_0948_edited-3Last August, my daughter Kerry, decided to start a blog (darling fig.com) featuring fashion, home decor and DIY, leisure activities, food and entertaining.  As a wife, mom of two children ages 3 and 6, and a corporate franchise attorney, she is working hard at fitting this into her busy life. Needless to say, she has her hands full. Kerry loves doing creative things, especially decorating, entertaining and DIY projects. But, since I had more free time this past year than she did, I offered to help her with a few DIY projects, recipes and entertaining ideas. Now and then, I will be sharing some of the things I have done for her blog with all of you.

ella's room


The first project that comes to mind are the ideas I developed when I decorated bedrooms at our house for our two grandchildren, Taylor and Ella. When Ella moved from a crib in our spare bedroom to her “big girl” bed in her own room, it was time for me to really do some fun decorating. This all happened last February and March, when it’s cold here and there are no gardening or cabin activities to consume my free time.  I can honestly say, this is the most fun I’ve had in a long time. Check out Seasons for complete decorating ideas for Ella’s room.
