In early August my BFF Abbie asked if I’d like to help her paint her twin girls’ bedroom wall. She’d already started an Apple tree on Claire’s side of the room, and I opted to paint a Cherry Blossom branch on Meara’s side:
However, Meara told her mommy she’d prefer a TREE because Claire had a tree. Made sense to me. So a couple weekends ago I went back and turned the branch into a tree. After mapping out the trunk I added cherry blossoms:
For a bit of greenery [cherry blossom branches only have flowers because they bloom so early in the Spring] I added butterfly chrysalis’, one on each side:
I think they add a bit of mystery to the tree:
I also added some fallen blossoms around the base of the tree and under the original branch:
Meara loved it [thankfully!]. I’d love to go back and add some birds and critters to the tree. Maybe a few butterflies flying above, too.
Abbie is nearly done with Claire’s apple tree:
The wooden mouse hole is covering a noisy heating grate where “the monsters live”. So Briggs [their Dad] made a door to lock the monsters inside *nods*.
The girls are very silly – Claire on the left, and Claire and & Meara on the right. They will be 4 this coming March [!]:
No visit to Ab’s is complete without seeing the chickens:
I just finished the farm-fresh eggs Abbie sent me home with – as always, they were to die for 🙂
It seems like just yesterday Abbie’s twins were tutu wearing pumpkins!
Briggs can never resist an opportunity to wear his own tutu [pic stolen from Facebook this morning]:
