Elle's Sweet Space

Welcome to Elle's sweet space!


This is definitely her favorite corner. She loves sitting at her vanity and looking at her beautiful self in the mirror.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. 1 Peter 3: 3-4

I love the above scripture print she has hanging between her mirror and vanity. I read it to her often when we are just hanging out in her room. Such a good reminder!


Elle's room is super small so every square inch of it is utilized. We have stuff crammed in every nook and cranny. She does a pretty good job (for a 4-year old) keeping her room picked up. I like to go in there every couple of weeks and reorganize and clean out all those nooks and crannies (and throw away all the paper that she's cut into a gazillion tiny pieces).

Her bed is Land of Nod that I found on Craigslist! The ladder shelf was built by Aaron's dad forever ago. He gave it to me for Christmas one year. I think before we even were married. I love it painted white and holding all Elle's books.


Elle's bed is super sweet to me with all the girly colors and sweet little details. The quilt was inherited from my Granny after she passed away. It was her picnic quilt that she kept in the trunk of her car just in case she ever needed a blanket. It's pretty ragged but that's why it's so charming.

Harry got the "Be Brave" pillow as a gift for his first birthday. I thought it looked better in Elle's room :). It came from Maude. They have the cutest pillows right now! I really like this one for Harry! I should probably get it for him since I swiped this was one from him.


Elle had to get in front of the camera every chance she got! She said "hey mom take a picture of me on my bed so you can show everyone how much I love my bed"..... If only she would sleep in this bed she loves so much.


A small collection of things we've collected or have been gifted over the years! The gymnastics print hung in my room when I was a little girl. My mom recently gave it to me. It says "gymnastics is on the beam" which really makes no sense at all. Ha!


This room was once our office/sewing room. My sewing desk sat right where Elle is and I used the pegboard as organization for all my sewing notions. We decided to leave it when we moved Elle in here and use it as a way to display her artwork. She LOVES it and is so proudt. She'll make something special at school or church and will say she want to hang it on her art wall!


This girl. So very sweet. An almost 5-year old with one very big, wild imagination and a beautiful, creative spirit. I think this little room of hers fits her personality to a tee!
