the bakery room

girls-room-2

girls-room-cupcakes

after four years of daily loving bombardment, the girls' room was in dire need of attention. i decided to surprise them last weekend and painted it the color of the pink box bake shop, our local yummery. you sure can't miss it now. complete with a new cupcake doodle!

Lisa said...

Oooh - I love it! How very very lucky they are.

Pat said...

Love that cupcake doodle print!! I didn't realize cupcakes were such a hot commodity until I watched a "Cupcake Wars" marathon one day while doing my own doodling. What a hoot! This print should be part of the show.

That's it. I'm coming to your house for breakfast , lunch, and dinner. Love the room.

aimee said...

it makes the rest of the house look like army barracks, so i'm going to have to follow suit sooner or later with the other rooms. (but no more pink!)

julie said...

fluffysam said...

Too cute! What lucky little girls they are!

Ecobatt said...

I'm a late-coming-lover of pink and a longtime devotee of cupcakes in their many varied forms. What a fun surprise for those gorgeous girlies of yours.

Lori said...

omg the before and after pictures are awesome. That room is crazy adorable and the cupcake doodle- perfect! Now I reeeeeeally want a cupcake.

Karen Blados said...

Adorable! I even like the pink ... it's a nice backdrop to all the yummy color!

And btw, I'm so happy to see naked groovy girls at someone else's house. Makes me feel almost normal.

Beautiful room! As a grown(?) woman, I'm not sure I could live in it every day, but I would sure like to spend at least one day a week there. Mondays would be good. And maybe Tuesdays.

Liv @ Choosing Beauty said...

I want that room!!!! And I want the cupcake print. Please tell me it's on etsy. And you could make a mint selling it to all the cupcake bakeries around now, starting with...CUPCAKE in St. Paul!!

thisdreamergirl said...

You must be one COOL mom!!!

lori vliegen said...

oh my gosh......this room is so happy and scrumptious and just so blasted cute, i can't stand it......is it wrong to be jealous of a sweet little girl who just got a local-bake-shop-yummery-bedroom-makeover......complete with fabulous cupcake doodle artwork?!!! xox, :))

la ninja said...

but... what did THEY say? :)

Christine E-E said...

we call this - bubble gum pink! LOVE it! it looks so cheery... do your girls love color as much as you?

Buffalo Lucy said...

Love it, Aimee!! Aidan's room used to be that very color too! The pink glow would illuminate the living room if we left the door open. ;) Sadly (ahem) she tired of it quickly. Any bets she'll be wanting to paint it back as soon as she sees this??

AG Ambroult said...

oh my...that "before" picture of their bedroom is precisely what my girls' bedroom looks like at the moment. scary stuff. You are so sweet to surprise them with the pink!
And I think I'd like my cupcakes for lunch best. Great new print!

Christine said...

Ouhhh - this is great! I bet some little person is happy! I would be too, if I had that cup cake menu on my wall :-)))

I LOVED the before-picture. (Where-have-I-seen-this-before?? ...if-only-I-could-remeber....
Oh! I know. Where I live :-)))

Candied Fabrics said...

Lucky Gals! Did they love it? It looks so cute!

Domestic Scribbles said...

And snacks! Hope everyone is still enjoying the sugar high. Yay Mom!

Bella Sinclair said...

That's every little girl's DREAM! Oh my goodness, I can just imagine their peals of delight when they opened their eyes to not only the pink, but a clean room! And I am in LOVE with your cupcake mantra! Now you can't get mad at them when you ask them what they want for dinner and they answer......

queencake and titangirl said...

i would like some cupcakes,too.please,miss:))

aimee said...

cupcakes for all!

Kolleen said...

i just want to climb up on that bed with a plate full of cupcakes and eat until my heart's content!!!

LOVE it!!!

Alexandra Hedberg said...

you know what Aimee: of course you can not control the girls when you give them that much cupcakes. Sugar makes children over active.

Why don't you paint the room green instead and write them another menu; spinach for breakfast lunch and dinner.

Inner Toddler said...

that is the best shade of pink ever and I love them all.
