a baby & a paintbrush.

Last week over spring break I had an amazing opportunity. My high school BFF is on her way (about a month away) from giving birth to her first child. With the excitement of new life comes all the preparations as well.

Way back in November when she gave me the news, she also asked me to paint the new baby's nursery. Of course, I said yes!

Keeping her theme of a forest (because of the link in the family to preservation and hunters) I created a mod twist for her new son's room. It all started with that little hat I made to keep his little head warm in those Minnesota winters :)

Here's what followed!

After all that work, Brenny took me out to a little tea place in Anoka. It was the perfect ending to the perfect week with my perfect little preggo friend.

A beautiful weekend led to some beautiful blooms. I am not sure if the Portland weather fairy is teasing us, or it really is the end of the rains. I would like to think it's the latter.
