Last weekend we began to do some of the work in Kylie's new room. So far it's looking pretty good and she is very happy with it. I am having a slight problem though. You see the child has a definite sense of how she wants things done. One thing she definitely did not want was a lot of black and hot pink which if you've ever looked for Paris themed decor well, you know it's not easy finding things that aren't black or hot pink. I finally tracked down some bedding by Bombay kids from their Gigi line. It does have some hot pink to it, but mostly it is on the sheets.
Bombay kids went out of business about two years ago so this was not easy. Definitely not easy if you are looking for full size bedding. Luckily I found someone selling some about an hour and a half away from here. So husband and I loaded the kids up and made a little trip and bought the bedding. It looks great, but unfortunately the person I bought it from could not find the bedskirt that came with it so she substituted and it with another one. It's okay, but not great. Also, only one sham. Yeah, I know I'm being picky, but that's just how I am. Anyway as I was talking to the lady she was telling me that she had just sold the matching Eiffel Tower wall decoration a week prior.I have been looking everywhere for this thing and it just made me sick to realize that I had missed out on it. Then last night I found one on ebay. It had a very good buy it now price with the best offer option. Did I snatch it up? No. I put in a best offer on it. All night long I tossed and turned thinking 'why did I do that? someone else is going to buy it while I wait for the seller to make up their mind.' And that folks is exactly what happened. I had just made up my mind to forget the best offer and go buy it and when I logged onto ebay I saw the dreaded words. Auction ended. I am ashamed to say that yes I did cry. A lot. And maybe, quite possibly
