It's not often that I like an entire collection of anything. I'd rather mix-n-match to get that vintage feel with a modern twist. But when I browsed through the new PBK catalog I received in the mail today, I fell in love with the Brooke Collection! It has the cutest combination of trees, owls, chocolate brown ric rac, cord accents, aqua blue, strawberry pink and green, and fun prints for that modern retro vibe AND it's shown on the Olivia bed - my FAVORITE of all time (okay, except for my antique euro single bed find years ago which I had cut to a twin size, added decorative wood mouldings and painted the sweetest shade of milk glass green - my first furniture refinishing project so it has a special place in my heart)!
I love that it's girlie without having the typical "princess" type look to it. Reminds me of last year's Woodsy Treehouse collection from Gap, which I loved and bought some pieces in anticipation of Grace wearing them this Fall. However, my little pumpkin has had a major growth spurt and none of the pieces fit :( ebay resells here I come! LOL, maybe I can finance my operation that way - he, he, he! And check out this adorable mouse play house - LOVE IT!!!! Makes me think of Grace's pouty lips when she says "mousssh" It's never too early to do a little Christmas shopping, right? Too bad PBK doesn't take gymbucks ;O I'm dreaming of tea parties :) Hmmm...maybe this bedding for when Grace transitions into a twin bed? Which has me thinking, when exactly do kiddos move from a crib to a bed? I figure I've got at least another year, but just curious. Anyone??
