If you don't know Avery, she is extremmmmmmmely girly. Wasn't forced on her by any means, but the chick has to pick out her own clothes every morning (usually a dress), helps mommy put on her make-up and has to be dripping in hair bows and jewelry at all times, poor grandma never leaves with any of her jewelry on - Avery makes her take it all off to wear herself.

Thankfully, there was ONE for sale on Ebay - gently used, but in like new condition. I rarely, if ever, buy used anything, but since Avery will never sleep touching the duvet itself and the pillow shams will be used solely for decoration, I decided to go for it!

I still have a lot of shopping and crafting to do (painting an old oak dresser white), but I will invite you all to the (virtual) unveiling come June! For now, check out my mood board below. BTW, if you are questioning the b&w Judy Garland poster, it's Esther & Tootie from Meet Me in St. Louis ... Avery's favorite movie/thing on the planet! If you haven't seen it, you have to check it out!
