Yesterday I had Marilyn painting a tree branch on a ceiling, today I asked for an entire forest. I am just going to offer you a sneak peak of what is to come. This wonderful old Tudor in the historic Idlewild area of our city is getting just what it deserves: a large loving family to fill it with joy and laughter again. Those eight tiny feet and four more substantial ones had long ago outgrown the tiny breakfast room so we are giving them a dining room that will make all ages want to linger and linger around the table.
Inspired by a photograph of a house I saw years ago in Southern Accents we set out to provide a backdrop against which the children would sit at the table each night and create stories concerning what was taking place in their magical woodland picnic room. I can already see my own little furry friends rustling through the leaves, rolling down the hills and bidding me come play. I just love it. I know they will, too.
Thank you Marilyn Heard. I love you.
