The director gave us some instructions which said, “go to the thrift stores and find older fashioned clothing that you can make look ratty and layered. Keep it 1940s ish and make sure you start now because if you wait all the good clothes will be gone”. This was back in December…
Thing Three is all boy- his love is UTAH GRIZZLIES Hockey! We used this as our inspiration for painting his bedroom.
His room had been a basic all white paint, and he needed some color. So we washed down the walls and got started. Continue reading “Thing #3’s Grizzlies Bedroom”
