nicoletta ceccoli

Carte postale

I love everything about Nicoletta Ceccoli's illustrations.
One of my favorite books to read with Olivia is 'The Girl
in the Castle inside the Museum'.  It is a wonderful book
with beautiful illustrations done by Nicoletta.

paint it!

I know chalboard paint isn't a new idea but I've been wanting to
paint something in my house for such a long time.  I've decided to
paint a door which is in between my kitchen and dining room.  It's
a swinging door and remains open 99% of the time and I think this
is the perfect door to apply chalkboard paint.  I'll keep you posted!

kisses for diego

Poor little Diego fell today and broke his leg in two places.
Here is a picture of him with his purple polka dot cast on -
I think the polka dots made him smile.  He is in surgery right
now and will hopefully be home tomorrow.  We love you
Diego!  xoxo
