Dorm Rooms

     I was going through previous blog posts and found some that I had never posted!  I worked on this one back in the fall when we dropped our daughter CiCi off at Ole Miss.  She is now home for the summer!  Oh well--better late than never!!!

     We dropped our second child off at college.  I really can't believe how the time has flown by!  She is attending the University of Mississippi-- our alma mater.  While we are so excited for her, it is very sad for us--the ones left behind.  I think we felt the break-up of our family unit last year when our oldest left for school.  It was really hard for all of us.  This go-around, we were better prepared emotionally.  She has an amazing roommate and we are SO thankful!
     Over the years I have been hearing little snippets about the girls' dorm rooms at Ole Miss.  As soon as CiCi figured out where she was going to school, I started googling Ole Miss Dorm Rooms.  Oh. My. Word.  The images that appeared before me made me break out into a cold sweat.  How in the world were we going to make this happen without spending thousands of dollars??  (Insert precious roommate's mom, Julie.)  She was incredible--called us "Dorm-In-Laws."  She has more energy than anyone I know and has the most amazing taste.  The room turned out so well because of her.  Most importantly, the girls just love it!


Hutches were made for the dorm desks to provide extra storage.

Ready for company!

A Little Switcharoo...

    Well, I did it again.  Really, how in the world does my husband put up with me?  I guess when it comes to decorating I am a restless soul.   I am a tweaker.  There is always something newer and better out there.  He is a tweaker, too.  Only, he does it with music.  He tried to do it with me, but that did not work out very well!  (Just kidding)  I think I have finally done it, though.  I have finished my foyer.  The new console table fits the long narrow space so much better.  I found it at Southeastern Salvage here in Nashville for next to nothing.  The antique chest that was in the foyer before was moved into the next room.  I love that chest and I think it loves its new space.
