The dresser in the images has been three colors, white, purple and now black. We didn't have the budget to once again change her flooring, so she is living with it. We painted her bathroom the same color blue and she continued the black and white print as well. I had a hard time getting a decent image, but you get the idea.
Yep.....she was doing it herself!! (Don't ya love the finger nails?!) I said, "Oh, I was going to do that for you." Which she replies, "Oh, no problem. I can do this myself!" --I'm thinking about those trees and apples again.-- She gets the chair pad covered and puts it in place. Miss Independence!
At this point she asks me why I am taking pictures. I tell her that I am thinking about blogging about her project. She says, "Oh yea? Then take a picture of me sitting on it!" (What a ham!) So I guess I gotta show that image......
Here is one corner where the blue meets the orange. She loves her papasan chair and big white paper lanterns. We are still looking for something to decorate that big blue wall.
So, I guess that apples not falling far from trees can be a super positive thing too! I wonder what paths she will take in life. I am sure that I haven't been the perfect mother, but I do know that I have done the best job possible, even if it is just helping her become more independent and self assured. She certainly has my passions for design. I encourage her everyday to "Go for it!" I hope that she doesn't delay her career for something safe. I hope she surrounds herself with anything that is super duper colorful and creative as she and her apples roll far from the tree.
