Let me just start by reminding you of my one year blog anniversary giveaway. I have quite a few names to draw from but I would love to add yours to the list! Just let me know you'd like to enter and make sure I know your your blog or e-mail address to contact you if you win. I'll draw the name on March 8 and announce the winner of one of my own watercolors on March 9.
When my daughter was pregnant both times I thought I would lose my mind I was so excited. I was born to be a grandmother! I could hardly wait to get in the nurseries to paint. Julie found out during both of her pregnancies that was was expecting girls at about 20 weeks. We thought we had loads of time but her first baby was a preemie. They didn't have a stick of furniture or as much as a diaper, but by George, they had wisteria and butterflies on the walls! We were much more prepared for the second birth, though she was late...go figure! I'd like to show you some pictures of Sydney's and Isabelle's nurseries for today's Metamorphosis Monday. I had such a wonderful time doing them - and YES, I DO realize how blessed I am to have a daughter and son-in-law who share their lives and children with "Mimi and Papa" so freely. Julie wanted both girls to have different rooms. We had already done a romantic style nursery for Sydney with pink and lavender wisteria and vines along the upper border of the room. I added butterflies and nests among the vines. So we decided to create for Isabelle an outdoor scene, with a low wild flower border and a large tree laden with nests and bluebirds of happiness. For some reason I didn't take pictures before I started painting, but both rooms were basic solid beige/antique white rooms.
The first two pictures are of Sydney's room...
