art love

What better way to start a blog than with some kid art?

An angel with yellow wings, a butterfly, a fly and a 'nippy ant'. At the seaside, with waves and a large shell. I love kids' artwork.

This old purple square has lived on our wall since we felt kind of rakish one weekend and went crazy with the sample pots from the local hardware shop. It has been there for about, oh, 9 or 10 months ( we like to take our time with decisions....and now we don't like the colour for this room anyway...) and suddenly we had the great idea of getting Poppy (our daughter, 3 1/2) to draw a picture on it. Instant art!

The photos can't do it justice - this room doesn't get enough natural light. We are sooo not painting this room purple; in winter it would just gloom at us. All our votes are cast for a light, warming, buttery yellow at present, but I can see this purple square staying with us for quite some time. Possibly even when we paint the rest of the walls yellow.
