Made the American Way

One of my mom's friends asked me to do a 4th of July wreath for her. She already had the ribbon, so I based everything off of that. Considering that all 4th of July decorations are extremely country, it was hard for me to get started. But after my mom and I put our minds together, I am very excited about how it turned out. I know it's not actually a wreath, but I think you can still fully get that good 'ole Americana feeling.

Lila Jane's Neapolitan

I painted this chair for my high school friend's daughter that just turned two. The colors remind me of Neapolitan ice cream, which probably explains why I've been craving ice cream every night. Hmmm...
I took these pictures in my backyard this morning. So the lighting isn't that great. But I painted the spindles on the arms and crossbar white with tiny dots of all the colors that I used. The middle rails on the back have pink and white stripes.

This magazine box, in Lila's room, is is what I matched the chair to. I hope that Lila loves this chair in her new big girl room. Happy 2nd Lila!
