I thought I would share with you some furniture that I have painted for my daughters. I have three daughters, each named after a flower - and I wanted them to have something (not to be too morbid) that would be useful and personal, and hopefully pretty to remember me by. I still have one more to do, I just need to find the right cupboard
This one I painted whilst pregnant with my third girl. I couldn't decide on a name for her, so painted my favourite choices, I wonder if you can guess which I chose?
Violet, Poppy or Luci?
already had these two!
I copied the illustrations from a Victorian sketch book and included the Latin terms for each plant as well.
I painted this one whilst pregnant with my first child. I rescued the cupboard from a skip and put some shelves up inside. It's pretty distressed now - real distress that is.
A closer look at the posy. It only took one evening!!
So my search is on for cupboard number 3 - but I can tell you NOW - there will not be a number 4!
