Putting it Together Tuesday

Line's room is ready. (I'm not sure if she sees my blog. She is at a camp in Vermont that is just for foreign exchange students.) But just in case...Line, here is a little peak at your new room! You will have Amy's room.

The bed is made, complete with hospital corners. Thanks to Suzanne for reminding me that not everyone does this.
Line, here is your American closet and dresser, empty and ready to fill with your new American clothes.






Here is your other dresser and desk all empty waiting for more new clothes and your American school books. The walls are bare so you can hang posters and pictures of your choice. That is Callie, your American cat, checking things out and waiting for you to arrive!

Amy graduated in '03 and hasn't lived here since '05 so her room was the logical choice for our foreign exchange student. Each time she came home on break she cleaned out and disposed of more of her things...so her room seemed pretty empty...until I started boxing up what was left. There were 17 boxes...which prompted me to clean in the attic to make room to store these...which added even more to the garage, which was already a disaster. This story will be continued...

Cute room! The problem with boxing up and storing your daughter's things is that twenty years later they'll still be there. As me how I know. :) blessings, marlene

Her room is just perfect. I know she will love and appreciate it. Callie is so cute, she will love having another girl in the house too!


ps. Your hospital corners put mine to shame..I must try harder next time. ;)

My guess is she will love it!

Beautiful room!!! I'm sure she will have a wonderful time at your home. Our school business manager hosted an exchange student 2 years ago and she was delightful. All the kids really enjoyed that school year. I know it will be delightful for you, too.

You're getting a foreign exchange student!?! How wonderful and exciting. Line will have the best decorated, most hip room around!

Suzanne said...

That is one lucky girl! Seriously, she will love that room -- so cheerful and cute!

You did a great job making her room look special. She will feel very welcome when she sees it. :o)
