The Full Picture

So, when I posted a tiny portion of Alexis' murals the other day, a few people were all WTH? Why have we not seen the rest? Ask, and ye shall receive. Photo quality is crap because I couldn't get my fisheye lens to pretend to be happy in bad light, but whatever.

(And yes, I painted the whole thing. And yes, it took forever. And yes, I plan to do something similar at the new house.)







(Oh, and technically, I never actually finished the room. I had planned to paint all the words to the three nursery rhymes, but it never happened. It would be a bit pointless to do it now.)

  7. Oh how lovely. Believe it or not, when I was pregnant with Diva (didn't know it was a diva at the time) I had murals on her wall painted also - they were nursery rhymes as well. I loved it. She however, at the ripe age of 3 decided that they frightened her in the middle of the night and we had to paint over them. I cried for days when that happened. To this day I have to sing the hickory dickery doc, hey diddle diddle, baa baa black sheep, humpty dumpty and twinkle twinkle little star songs to her at bedtime when she's had a rough day. Those were the murals and those where the songs I'd sing in the rocking chair at night to her. Ahhhh, memories! Now if you are available, when we move in August you may come over and help me paint new pics on Boy Child's walls - because I didn't paint my murals, a friend did for me as a baby gift - and it took months.

  15. OK, two things:

    1. Is there anything you can't do? I had no idea you were so artistic, that is freaking awesome. I mean, seriously. Wow.

    2. Your post about memories of your house? Made me bawl like a baby. If I didn't know how great the new house is, I would totally beg you not to move.
