We recently got back from a family vacation where all eight grandchildren played and co-existed for seven fun-filled days.？ My oldest daughter， who is now four， fit right in with her cousins.？ And what’s a little unusual about this is that she is the only granddaughter on my parent’s side， among five boys (not counting the new babies).？ She is what I like to describe as girly， but grounded.
She loves pink and doing girly things like spinning， drawing butterfliescanvas throw pillow covers， and wearing dresses， but she was right out there in the ocean – bobbing up and down in the waves with her boy cousins， playing with cars， and racing on the beach.？ My little feminine princess can hang up her ballerina slippers when she wants to.personalised gifts
This month’s featured bedding collection， Pink and Taupe Damask， isn’t 100 percent frills either. With soft and subtle shades of pink and taupe， it can appeal to your grounded (or sophisticated) side. Yet with the added touch of ruffles， minky， and satin， it is sure to appeal to your feminine side.？ Fit for a princess … or a novelist … or both!
And now the fun part … our CONTEST.
