This is from the Curio Cottage in Westport.  It is a teeny, tiny thrift store run by the Westport Woman's Club.  They have some of the nicest treasures, like that very long strand of pearl beads.  I don't think I've ever seen faux pearl beads that large.  They are even hand-knotted.

I found this large, framed print at the Goodwill in Norwalk (please ignore the reflection of a paddle fan).

Both of these girls will be going into Frannie's room.  We are planning to repaint the walls pink and grow it up a little.  Can you believe Frannie doesn't have pink walls?  Most of her furniture is pink though.  I'll probably have to change that too - maybe a creamy white.  We'll see.


Tidbit:  Have you ever had the opportunity to see Stevie Wonder perform?  I think it was December, 1979, when my husband and I went to one of his shows at Lincoln Center.  His album, Journey Through The Secret Life Of Plants, had been released that year and his performance, as well as the venue, was spectacular.  Before the show, we dined at a pub style restaurant (my husband says it was called Suspenders) and we had the most delicious, piping hot, French Onion Soup.  One thing I do remember for sure was that it was a frigid winter evening, just like the temperature is now.  Brrrrr!

I'm mentioning this because my post title is another Stevie Wonder hit.  Just in case I'm dating myself and you didn't already know.

Never saw Stevie perform but I would like to. One of these days. I hope you post pictures of Frannie's room transformation. Amelia's walls are purple... her bathroom is pink though. :)

I immediately started singing the song when I read your post title -- what a fun little bit of trivia. I'll bet you'll have fun re-doing Frannie's room. My mom did my room in a similar sounding way when I was Frannie's age -- with pictures from antique shops, etc. I still have some of those pictures now and I love them!
