Tween Time

“How do you make a kids room into a tween room”? Color. I added hot pink to Teddy’s room, and a shocking green rug to take my 10 year old room from a kiddie room into a tween room. I bought her a cool modern lamp from Crate and Barrel , some art from an artist on the street and she’s ready to get creative. For Sea, I painted her walls a soft purple. We put her painted surf board up, some of her art work, a cowhide rug from Williams Sonoma home outlet, a colorful glass Crate and Barrel lamp, and her butterfly collection. Her room looks cool, but still has that youthful touch. Inspire your children, don’t foster obsessions for them to be adults. Coloring and decorating with what you love makes any room reflect the person. Decorate with what you love.

Give Local Yard Sale

A few weeks ago, I bought my daughters new beds to update their bedrooms in New York City. What was I going to do with all these beds? Then I started looking around. Uh oh! The girls and I decided that we needed to have a yard sale. So, we asked Georgica Creek Antiques in Wainscott if we could have a yard sale there. The girls needed poster boards, so I went to the Container Store, got some poster boards and storage boxes, and then started the process. The closets, the basement, the toys, the kid’s clothes, the furniture. Whatever we didn’t use, went to the sale. Last Chance Animal Rescue Fund came and brought beautiful dogs they saved, the girls had their lemonade stand which profited the East Hampton Library, and 100 percent of my proceeds from my yard sale are going to Island Harvest, “The work of Island Harvest is clearly essential to combating hunger on Long Island.” – Dr. Pearl Kamer, LI Association Chief Economist. To donate to Island Harvest . I am so proud of my girls for donating their time, to Georgica Creek Antiques, and to all of my friends who helped me so much. We had a blast and did something good for someone else unsolicited.
