Dreaming in the Trees

You may have noticed a lack of posts from me regarding real food I actually cooked. No? Well I have been busy getting ready to paint and painting our 5 year old son's bedroom. He wanted a tree house in his room. I know weird, right? But being that I am the one who came up with the idea a while back I was excited to get painting. No really. OK I lie, like a dead dog. I was not enthused but I HAD to paint the room, it really needed it. I am glad it's over and it turned out really cute.



the leaves are all stamped from real cottonwood leaves from our yard

my husband painted this by hand, he sings a song about a knight who lives in a castle in the sky so I suggested we paint a fake window with a view of the castle I think it's the best part that and the tree I painted which doesn't photograph well
So while I didn't want to get off my duff and paint I'm glad I did. Funny how that works sometimes.

Peace and Love,

  9. It's cute! I wasn't sure what a tree house was supposed to look like (never been in one) but now I know and I like it.

    I also love that you used real leaves for stamps!
