|The mural we painted together. We haven't even put the baseboards down yet! I think she needs a palm tree in the corner instead of the topiary tree. One thing at a time, though! (She is ready for softball practice.)|
Another day of tropical island decorating. We unpacked all the moving boxes in the bedroom and got started finishing the mural. My granddaughter said, "You should add a hula dancer, Nana!" I said, "Okay. Draw one off as big as a piece of paper and we will put it up." She ran off to draw her girl. She called out at one point from the other room, "Nana, I have to start over. My girl is so skinny she can only have one coconut!" (She is 8. She was not trying to be funny.) I immediately sent a text to my sister to tell her of the cute remark. You can't have a one coconut hula dancer, now, can you?
|I traced her drawing onto the wall and she painted it in. At one point she remarked, "I can't believe my drawing is going to be on a wall!"|
|Here is the flamingo window. These are curtains she already had and wanted to keep. (I tried to talk her into long white ones, but she really liked these!)|
|Here is a close up of the hula dancer. She was so excited, she decided she needed to add a dolphin in the water! I know this mural would make ME smile!|
