A saying for my girls


I posted this on my blog, and Cate suggested (Nudge-Nudge) I share it here. This is a picture of the soffit above the mirror in my daughters' bathroom. The walls used to be covered in blue and pink ribbon patterned wallpaper. I'm not a wallpaper fan, so down it came. I repainted the walls with a Wooley, using warm beige and ochre tones.

I knew that I wanted to put some words on the soffit, but what??? I thought and thought, and this is what I came up with. It may not be flowery and poetic, but it's what I want my girls to remember always.

Beautiful sentiment for your girls and for everyone who visits your house, too.

The things that are said by your mom mean so much. What a lovely message to your girls.

Simplicity is always beautiful.

What's a wooley? I obviously don't do any decorating around the house! : .)

I love it! I don't know what a wooley is either!?!

A Wooley is a faux finishing tool that I picked up at Home Depot. It's a really easy, fast way to get a "ragged" type finish. The effects you get depend on the paint colors you choose. I used an ivory for the main color and worked a fairly dark ochre color into it rather sparingly.

Thanks for the nice comments:)

I love what you "wrote" on the soffit. What a wonderful thing for your girls to see every day!
