Children's Art

I had my daughter Tilly do some art for my art gallery/hallway. She did a spectacular job.

I love the simplicity of her pencil sketches and the hint of blue watercolour paint.

I have commisioned her to do one more as I think the wall where they are displayed needs an extra frame at the bottom.











One more week of school holidays. I am in 2 minds about the kids return to school...on one hand it means school lunches to make and no more sleep-ins.
On the other hand I get the whole day to myself and can get on with my many pending projects.

Tilley's drawings look so fabulous! What a talented artist she is! I love the black frames and the butterfly is my favourite! Priceless artwork that you could just not find anywhere else...I love it! ~ Tina x

What a beautiful way to display and encourage your daughter's art! She will remember that forever. x

It is indeed spectacular! And a great idea too. She's clever like her Mum.

I'm in the same boat Ange, I like having a lie in (sleep ins don't happen in this house), but I'm finding it very hard to keep my eldest entertained. So I think I'm all for school starting again! Yay! The only thing I find frustrating is when I get stuck into doing something I have to break it up to go pick them up from school/kindy and then I lose my mojo.

They're gorgeous Ange, she is quite the artist and they look lovely hanging on that part of the wall. I love seeing children's artwork displayed. Rachaelxx

Such a talented young lady. Her artwork looks perfect hanging in the gallery and those frames match the work beautifully. So special and individual..just priceless. Kym X

Oh I love these! I adore kids' artwork and you have framed them so beautifully. The end of holidays is in sight - I'm looking forward to clearing away in the morning and the house staying tidy! Plus all those decorating jobs I can't wait to get stuck into :)

A mother and daughter art gallery you have there now! Looks fab. I used to love framing the kids art and hanging it around the house - nothing as sophisticated as yours though!

I love the artwork, My sister has several frames in her home that are constantly changing with works of art! Great way to show off projects they are so proud of!
