“PINTING” GRETAS BEDROOM – HAPPY BIRTHDAY

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRETA!

GRETA!
GRETA!

My Best friend Trish’s youngest daughter, Greta,  who turns 9 today, was struggling with the family’s upcoming move.They were just moving across town, but Greta had known no other home and the impending change was causing undue stress for Mom and Daughter.  We were visiting and I sat Greta down, and did what my MOM used to do when we were planning a move…I got her excited about HER NEW ROOM. Talking about colors…And I introduced Greta to something that was not available to me….

I set up a BOARD “GRETA’s BEDROOM”, gave her a two minute tutorial and my laptop to use and Greta started….

“PINTING” (Rhymes with minting)…

…as she called it. The next thing I know, she had “pinted” over 175 pins…and when I took a look…well let’s just say…my heart about burst with love for this amazing little girl and what her perfect Bedroom might contain…

Lets take a look at a sampling from Greta’s Pinterest board, shall we?

…she starts out with the usual, beds, practical and lots of room for friends to sleepover…
