For Jessi's birthday, we bought her a Cheetah print bedspread (per her begging) and we just finally got around to painting her room this weekend. We have a nice wallborder that we put up, and we are painting her "boxes" (shelves) a deep brown to match. Now ... I need some other ideas ... for Christmas.

I was looking for these bamboo fans that I've seen before, but have no idea what they are really called or where to look. They are sort of round and flat, and look like they are woven from bamboo. When I visualize them, I think of the ladies fanning the king or something. I'm thinking they would look great on her walls, which are kind of bare right now.

Any ideas??? I'm about "cheetah'd out" this weekend!

Does she like African stuff? Like masks, statues, etc.

She's really more into the "cheetah" aspect of it ... you know her ... the Cat Queen. I may just get her a bamboo shade for the window and a few small cheetah prints to frame and call it a done deal! I would love to find her an inexpensive cheetah statue, large enough to set on the floor. I'd LOVE to find a fake cheetah rug ... wouldn't that be too cool?

This is the first time we've actually completely decorated her room .. so I'm excited by it!

Thanks Lenora! I'll check those out in a bit!

Here's one of a woman with a cheetah - very pretty -

I was trying to find something like this -

or this -

Argh! This stuff is so cheap and easy to find when you are actually in Africa!

Dawn 09-05-2005 12:37 PM

Oooh! That picture is gorgeous! I personally think the masks would be cool, but knowing my child, she'd get totally freaked out over it!

Yeah, I forgot she was a little girl, but that woman looks like a queen to me. So regal. When I was in Egypt, there was all kinds of cat stuff everywhere. Of course, they sort of worship cats. I was hoping to find one of those carved statues in a cheetah. Those are really cool too. Steve has some of those from Africa. Only his are zebras and elephants and other animals not cheetahs.

All good ideas Lenora! I'm going to keep looking on eBay to see what I can find! I wonder if ABC has anything ... hmmm ...
