Stella . . . .

First off - don't you love that name!? Stella . . . I know that baby has got to be cute with a name like that! Alright, like most tales you read here on the blog, this painting was bought as a gift! The giver called the soon-to-be-new-mommy and asked her to take pictures of the bedding. Good thing she did - as with most Pottery Barn Kids bedding, the colors are more vivid in person than what you see online or even in the catalog. Below is one of the pictures that I received . . .


Now you can see what the online picture look like . . .

Now, I must tell you all that after I finally found {and purchased} my bedding for Emsley - this PBK bedding came out in the Spring catalog. I was in love with it and torn!! Should I send my stuff back and buy this or just keep what I got?? Obviously I kept what I got just because I had so much that already worked well with the bedding - I would be starting from scratch if I bought the PBK stuff. But I sooo loved this bedding and thrilled to no end that I was going to paint a piece to match it!!!
So, whatcha think?? Love it or what? I did have some "guidelines" for this one - it needed the flowers from the sheets - some pearlized paints - the pink dots are a must - maybe bring in the color black {the furniture is black in the room} - just to name a few! I hope I was successful!!

I absolutely adore it! I can't wait to hear your comment Andrea!

I love it! It looks like a wonderful complement to the bedding, and I love the punch of black in the name. Maybe she'll take a picture of it in the nursery and we'll get to see how good it looks! (hint) ha.
