Each of Us is a Flower (night light)

In August we were home with 2 kids and a day off. Amazing!
Except it was pouring. Terrible!
We decided to go to IKEA. Great!
So did the rest of the city. Doh!
But we had a gift card that needed to be spent and there was room at small land so we went for it.

All we came home with was this cute new light for L's room. And some napkins, and a few other little things. IKEA is terrible for small impulse buys. (New can opener? For that price who can refuse!)
Since we were attaching it to the wall we had to think ahead. Where will we put her bed when it gets extended like a big girl bed? But we couldn't decide so we just fiddled around with the layout and extended the bed anyway. Basically the dresser swapped places with the pink chair. I still can't decide if I like it or if it's awkward.

And here it is lit up. It has remained lit up for the last 2.5 weeks straight. In fact the day we bought it daddy had to go straight off to work. She carried it around all night then the next morning woke him up with the light in her hands ready to be installed. Safe to say she loves it. It's her sl-ower light.

Her purses all lined up on the hooks. This is her own design.
