blue on blue.


oh how i love painting trees...and i paint a lot of them!

cute little arya got a new "big girl" room, and i got to help with the process. i selected this soft blue color, and then i painted the tree silhouette with birds and butterflies on in a complementing shade.

  4. Congrats on the features!

    My husband is also a huge fan of pickles (Mt. Olive Kosher Dills are his favorite!)

    My grandmother used to make candied cucumbers/ pickles, which used red hots. They turned deep red, almost purple.
