The TWIN's Room

Almost 6 years ago, I painted the walls in my "not-yet-born" twin nieces' room.
Finally took a few photos of part of it on this trip to LA - I actually think I did a pretty good job. The colors are still bright and the images are not so childish that they aren't still appropriate for these kindergarten girls.

There are some glow-in-the-dark planets that are hanging from the ceiling. The "blue" one has fallen apart, but still "glows" at night when the lights are off.

My favorite - the kangaroo! All the dots of the "hopping" trail are different colors and "bounce" all over the walls of the room - super cool!

I think this is my favorite wall - Capuchin monkey and owl and giant panda, along with "M," "N," "O," "P," "Q" and the clock, of course.

This nest had two eggs in it until the day the girls were born - then the little baby birds "hatched" and have been out and about for five and 1/2 years now.....

"S" is not for "snake" but for "slinky s's" hooked end to end from the branch.

There is an animal for each letter of the alphabet, though some of them are hiding in another part of the room so the girls have to look for them to match letter to animal.....the alligator being one that is hiding behind the door....

And the bear sits upon the light switch, holding onto the tree with a little bee buzzing around his ear.


  1. absolutely adorable! excellent execution, too!

  2. I´m speechless Jone!
    These people can NEVER redecorate that room.
    When the girls in the future will bring home their boyfriends,
    the kangaroo will be watching them:)
    Love love

  3. what a fabulous scheme Jone! Years later they are reaping the benefits - they get a game to play with letters - now that is forward thinking! what a clever auntie they have xxdi
