Sugar and Spice and everything Nice...most of the time

My girls absolutely love books! Some of their favorites, as I'm sure if you have little girls you are aware of some of these; Fancy Nancy, Madeline, GiGi, Ruby, Eloise and several others.  I love all these little girl characters with big dreams, great imaginations, lofty aspirations, skies the limit attitudes and a couple who even speak French. I am most excited that these characters are good wholesome role models for my daughters to emulate. Fancy Nancy dresses up and has tea with her little sister and loves all of her friends. Madeline, well she goes to a boarding school run by a nun. She is all about sharing, education,and being a good girl.Sheila Walsh's GiGi is one of our favorites. GiGi is a little princess. Why she asks is she a princess? Because her father is a King....the King of Kings.We are all princesses. Isn't that a wonderful explanation to your daughter why she is a princess? It's  basically a religious take on Fancy Nancy.Very cute. Adorable little Ruby who loves to be fancy ,well mannered and have tea with her Grandma. What a great little girl. Last but certainly not least, at least not in my house, Eloise. This little girl is full of love and good intentions, though sometimes not thinking things through and chaos erupts, but when she makes an error in judgment...she admits her wrong doing and works to correct her faux pas. ( That's French for mess up!)

Speaking of Eloise, has anyone heard of the new Eloise suite that they have recently opened at the Plaza? ( It was bound to happen).Here is the full article. I know my girls would lose their minds if I could take them for a night to sleep in Eloise's suite. But,we have no plans on being in the greater New York area anytime soon. That can't stop the girls from dreaming about this fantasy world brought to life by Betsey Johnson. It also won't stop Mommy for getting some great new ideas for Gab's room! god knows they will be selling these sheets. It's amazing what I can do with a little inspiration and the help of my crafty MIL. Have you seen the Bella's Fancy Nancy Bedroom? I may have to add some pics:) For now, here are some pictures of the Eloise Suite. Enjoy.


  1. I have an award for you :)

  2. Well, how anti-climactic of me, I just came over to say THE EXACT SAME THING AS AMANDA.

    Please stop by tomorrow!

    (BTW, I have never read any of those books. I am drowing in Thoms the Train, How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food, The True Story of Dragons, and Baseball Camp on the Planet of the Eyeballs. May we trade places for a week so I can play dollies with your girls? Pretty please?)

  3. Aw, these bring back memories of when my girls were little. They grow up way too fast. :(

  4. I love Eloise...although I was a little late finding her. I've only seen the movies!

  5. I love it when I find a good book with religious themes..l

  6. I agree with the above poster!

    We love all of these books, staples in our house
