Parisian Dreams

My oldest has had the same bedding since she moved into a "big girl bed" -- over seven years ago.  I still love that bedding (thank you, Shabby Chic for Target!) but she was ready for a change.  Lately she's intrigued by Paris and all things French, so when I spotted these Paris toile sheets in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog, I thought they might be perfect.  She loved them, so we took the plunge and placed an order.

The new bedding -- the sheets, along with coordinating bedding in pink and chocolate brown -- came yesterday, and I set it up for her while she was at school.  She was thrilled!  And how do I know for sure that she loves it?  She made her bed today:

One other big change -- the Barbie Dream House moved out, and a comfy reading chair moved in:

Her room is starting to look a lot more grown up, as is she.  (Sniff.)  Someday I hope to take her to Paris, but until then, the sheets will have to do.  :)


  1. What beautiful bedding! And such a grown up girl's room. I bet she loves it! I love her chair too! I dread the day my son doesn't want little cars on his sheets anymore :-)

  2. Doreen-
    I know what you mean! Sometimes I wish they'd stop growing. By the way, the chair is from Ikea -- very affordable. Love Ikea!

  3. Oh, Alison, I LOVE, LOVE those sheets!!! They're soooo pretty!
    I wish someone would slip some of those on my bed while I wasn't looking. lol

  4. Any chance you still have these sheets in good condition and are ready to move on to a different style? My little one is ready for a bigger girl room and would adore these sheets, but they appear to be discontinued. If interested. Give me a price. Battenbergs (at) Hotmail (dot) co (dot) uk
