The Color of Home - Kiddo's Room

Taken early this morning, while he was still in dreamland ;)

I never thought I would paint my boy's room blue.....but it matched his recycled denim quilt so well. I even made the quilt years before he was born (so I didn't know he would be a boy!). I pieced it together by hand while we lived in NYC (no machine then), with blue jeans collected from our stash and friends! ....aaaand I even took it while we traveled, that quilt has been to Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Mexico! toot-toot!

So blue it was!

The painting is a piece by his big cousin Patience when she was only 9 :) and the records painted one fall afternoon with his daddio!

It is quite a peaceful blue, don't you think?
