a painting…

do you remember this cute picture of eleanor reading i snapped a few weeks ago with my iphone? well look at what the talented paul ferney painted for us to kick off a new round of the commission project!
paul and jordan (who you know as the talent and genius behind oh happy day) have found a way to make art a little more accessible, and just in time for the holidays. you send in a photo of anything you’d like, and he’ll turn it into a beautiful oil painting.

thanks again, paul!
p.s. i was a lovely lady this week over on emma robertson’s gorgeous blog. thanks to emma for including me with such a sweet batch of lovely ladies!

    OMG! I want to do this soooo bad but my husband would never agree to it. He just can't spend money on stuff like this. Moments like these make me wish I had a secret checking account.

    Adorable. Can I just say that I started reading your blog about a month ago when I was 8 1/2 months pregnant praying for a baby girl. Your blog made me want a sweet little girl even more. She was born a week ago and I hope that I'm as good and sweet of a mother as you are!

  6. oh i love this idea! and the painting of eleanor is perfect. i'll definitely send in a photo. we could use some new artwork for our new house!
