Easter Blessings


For easter this year my daughter Aysha and I decided to color coffee filters instead of eggs. I was cleaning out my cupboards and decided instead of trashing the old filters that no longer fit our coffee pot we would come up with a creative idea for them. First we tie-died the filters with food coloring and then let them dry over night. While slightly damp we twisted each filter into a beautiful flower shape. After twisting over 800 filters and filling my bed up with beautiful pastel roses our mission was not complete! Aysha decided to go find some sticks and create these gorgeous long stem paper roses for her grandmothers easter present. I took several and created garlands and the most gorgeous easter bonnet and bloomers a girl has ever seen! I hope you have fun looking at our easter creations this year! xo, Alys

Your Majesty,

I just L.O.V.E these images!!! I once had a baby girl and had the most breathtaking nursury made for her, by her father. My husband is a builder and engineer so we created this fairytale paradise for our "Princess Royale"! But as they all do, she grew up and we are now in the middle of planning her Sweet Sixteen!!! Time has flown by so very fast:( Merci for sharing these images:)) they truly brought back so many great memories of all of us in her nursury. Especially the one of her sitting up. We have one that is so similar of our Chandler-Mi'chelle sitting on her window seat just slouched over with her big belly and a diaper:))

Royal wishes,
Daisy
