Thank you for all the playroom love! It's been so much fun putting it together. The girls *do* love it, and it is a wonderful place to play when the weather outside really isn't cooperating. It will be especially nice later this summer when the afternoons are dangerously hot and the basement is super cool...
Thank you, also, for reeling me in after I almost took the plunge with pink dye and turned my settee into some cotton candy disaster! I agree, the white twill is a better option for now.
There is always time to mix up the pillows or make another slipcover later in a fun color. I was wrapped up in a moment, inspired by a photograph, and clearly deluded into thinking my space was some funky, artist's city loft that could handle a bright pink couch. Er, well, it isn't. And, and as at least one of you pointed out, I can bleach a white slipcover. That is an immeasurable selling point, in my opinion.
In completely unrelated news, we were at urgent care again this weekend for Fidget and her coughing. Ready for another chorus of "well, this is just how your kid is", I was completely surprised when the doctor said, "you know, I don't think she has asthma."
This particular doc thinks Miss Fidge might be suffering from acid reflux. Which would explain the nighttime coughing. And the trouble sleeping. Why the asthma meds don't work. And a couple other things. So we are 36hrs or so into a trial run of a doubled dose of prevacid. I seriously hope this works. She has been up 2x a night for the last week. Poor thing needs some sleep!
I am also eagerly anticipating a custom ordered diptych of these images from The Noticing Project that I purchased through their etsy shop. I love the repeated color, one so shiny and smooth and the other, spiky. It's just cool.
