Please excuse the sounds of my sweet baby crying - we’re going through teething.
I was even able to get the shelves up on the wall by myself! Vintage frog print and some vintage touches set up for now until I have my table setup. Prying the table out of Siri's room for Theo's has been difficult. Even after promising to go get a new big girl night stand. She just doesn't want to let it go.
This is my favorite design I've done in a long time. Very cute, playful and whimsical. I think this could make super adorable curtains is my daughter's room.
A pattern to go with my "grandma" illustration.
My grandma has not been doing too great. In the hospital for pneumonia & just not in good shape. I made this little illustration last year. It's a little collection of items that remind me of her house when I was little. Milk glass, old vintage camera, peonies. All the things that make me smile. I wish Grandmas lasted forever.
As I was late getting home I took yesterdays pattern and made it softer, lighter and more feminine. I like it. I went with an olive green and a soft grey/brown background.
This last month has been full of gathering things from Grandma's house and keeping the things that remind me of her house from when I stayed there often as a child. It's never anything a worth or even anything others in my family would want, but they mean a lot to me. She is moving into an assisted living place where she has her own little apartment. No need to cook or clean anymore Grandma! Yay! But, it does fill me with urgency to get any items I want now before they are gone forever.
I took the little "paint-by-number" butterfly hanging from the kitchen sink light. My grandpa passed away when I was about 3 years old and have a picture of him holding me up to the butterfly. It makes me think of him & Grandmas house. It now currently resides in our laundry room on the light pull for that area. Makes me smile every time I see it.
I also was going through the basement seeing if there was anymore milk glass pieces I love & saw this old plastic curtain covering a cart/shelf. I instantly loved the pattern. I was originally thinking of taking it and making something, but as we are getting the house on the market to sell - I really don't need anything else brought back into the house. So, I took a photo.
This photo is my inspiration and interpretation for this pattern I made. I will always be reminded of Grandma's when I look at it. I modernized the colors and made some tweaks to the style & pattern. But, it is very similar.
