little lenna is finally getting a crib and a more permanent carved out space to call her own. today i was scanning the martha stewart paint palette, and i immediately envisioned her room: slate gray walls with mustard yellow, gray, and white curtains, a black jenny lind crib, my brother’s old dresser painted black with shiny new hardware. and then i tallied the cost and got exhausted just thinking about the process. alternate plan is to leave the wall color as is, paint the old dresser white, buy a crib and bumper and call it a day. it was fun to think about, though. there are still a few creative juices flowing, even if it doesn’t involve gray walls. i’m eyeing this wreath and a couple wire frames.
elisha would paint for half the day if he had his way. i have stacks upon stacks of paintings by both boys. i’m quite impressed with myself that i can quite quickly decipher which painting belongs with each boy. asher is finally breaking out of his “black period.” he branched out into pink and teal today. finally.
