This really hits home! This is me but my room wasn't quite as pretty and I know I am a disappointment because I have been told I am, I wear that as a badge of honour now!. I love your work!

Thank you Bunny! This is a very thinly veiled self-portrait but I did decide to give myself the dream bedroom of my 11 year old self - the real one wasn't like this :)

I LOVE this! I think I had those same hoop dress dolls on my shelf. Ha ha, and of course the horses. Love it!
