"Riley"

I LOVE this bedding!

Well, lucky me - I got to do up another painting to match! This is a challenge for me, because I get locked in on only one type of design for certain fabrics. Thankfully, I was given what direction to go in! Jennifer - I hope you love it!


I meant to give a little sneaky peeky - but time just got away from me! As soon as I'm done with this post - I'm wrapping this number up and sending it on it's merry way!


This has to be one of my favorite shades of blue - I wear it all the time. I've heard it called "smart blue" - now, someone made that up - BUT hey, sounds good to me! Smart Blue it is!

I love art - have I told you guys this before?? And I'm such a sucker for art - fine art actually! Like this . . . .


Can't tell what it is? Maybe this will help . . . .


That is some fine art - made be some fine hands that belong to 2 of my fine children! What can I say, artsyness runs in this family! When you got it, you got it! ha! But really, don't you love your kid's art?? I have so much of it and I'm trying to slowly find homes for it all! These were actually hand prints that were on bags! BAGS!!! I cut them out knowing they would look fantastic in my kitchen! And I was right! I went to Hobby Lobby today and got them matted & framed!

I also {finally} got this wonderful piece framed! LOVE IT! I did change out the gray mat for black but really, I could have left it. Either color looked great.


It is hanging on an opposing wall from this painting. . . .


I thought they looked great together - since they both have the Parisian thing going on!

I got some more today during my little shopping trip at Hobby Lobby {more on that later!} But while I was there, I lost this! The one that looks like a piece of candy! Once I got home, I realized it wasn't in Em's hair - DEVASTATED! I tore up the "grocery-getter" looking for it - her car seat - re-walked my steps! I couldn't find it! So, in a last ditch effort - I picked up the boys from mom's day out AND went back to Hobby Lobby! Yeah, I know - that is desperate! It had to be in the parking lot AND the fact that I park in one of the last spots in the row {walking off this baby fat!} I just knew it would still be there - if that was, in fact, where I lost it! Well, guess what people?! It was!!! Whoo hoo! I was so proud that I called Lonnie to brag - he informed me it was "too ugly for anyone to pick up!" All I can say is that the wanker doesn't know what is cute in hair fashion! This girl is on top of her "baby girl" hair trends! He did laugh and say he was joking, but he didn't know that I was ready to come home and order another one off of etsy {and while I was at it, order some different felt ones for variety - I feel like Santa REALLY wants to get her some more for her stocking!}

Now, I think I will go order some more clips after {of course} I wrap up "Riley"!

Riley is an awesome name, and that is a wonderful painting {as if it needs to be said} :o)

Your kidlets paintings are too freakin cute! I LOVE them. They look super great in their mats and frames.

And I'm so glad you found Em's hair clip. Although I woulda been laughing my butt off watching you frantically search for it, and driving back to the store. LOL!!! You crack me up. When you love something that much, you gotta do what you gotta do, haha!
