Why do the bells of Christmas ring?
Why do little children sing?
Once a lovely shining star,
Seen by shepherds from afar,
Gently moved until it's light
Made a manger's cradle bright.
There a darling baby lay,
Pillowed soft upon the hay,
And it's mother sang and smiled:
"This is Christ the Holy Child!"
Therefore the bells of Christmas ring,
Therefore little children sing.
Today I have decided to tackle the boys' bedroom with a paint brush, roller and a couple of cans of paint! Hubby and I have discussed painting the boys' room for awhile but just haven't seemed to find the time to do it. So, I have decided, with the help of my boys (well, sort of, they're 7, 5 and 6 months old), to do it today and surprise him with it! It's going to be so cute! I painted the walls ochre above the chair rail and then I'm going to stripe them with a creamy white. Below the chair rail moulding, I'll paint the walls in the same creamy white. The chail rail is going to be painted a nice shade of red. With all that cream and ochre, I'm going to need a punch of color! We're going to have a travel/safari theme. The kids have this huge giraffe that they can actually sit on like a chair so that was our inspiration piece. They have antique airplanes hanging from the ceiling already, so that is where the travel part of the theme is going to come in. Well, we just took a short lunch/blog break and I can hear that the baby is awake from his nap so I must say goodbye for now and go feed the baby, play with him for a bit and then it's back to work while my troops (aka boys) look on.
Have a great day all!!

And then... I painted the little boxes and lids pink. I decoupaged some reproductions of vintage postcards to the lids and added a little glitter(of course...I LOVE glittery sparkly things) Then I dipped the bottoms and sides of the boxes in some shimmery glass glitter and added a few ribbons and pearls. There you go! Gerber would be proud!!
The one on the right with the blue background has a picture of a fairy and a little boy floating through the stars while sitting on a pillow. It doesn't show in the picture but on the side of the box I added:
Through a sea of stars we float
With a pillow for a boat
Off to dreamland every night
There and back by candle light.
