Hello! Hello! There is a new addition front and center in our dining room. I couldn’t be more smitten with it!
That’s right. It is an amateur watercolor by my main squeeze, Ryan. He created this little gem in fourth grade!
Perfection. It is seriously vintage at about 25 years old.
It’s like fourth grade Ryan predicted the future and knew how totally perfect his original art would be in his grown up home. After all we are obsessed with mason jars around here. We’ve got the mason soap dispenser and tea towel in the kitchen.
We also made the Ball pendant light recently.
I’m thinking Ryan’s art will make a cameo at our wedding because we will certainly have Ball jars full of wildflowers just like his picture foreshadowed. Wouldn’t this art be darling next to a guest book?
Oh the wedding! We actually have no updates in that department. Other than the fact that you can expect to see Ball jars. We have not set a date or picked a venue. We’ve been super busy with the shop and all. Thanks for asking though!
Back to our adorable family heirloom…When we paint the dining room sage, I will change the frame to a dark wood.
See moms you really should save all of your children’s artwork! Their future spouse might just love it as much as you do today. I’m so glad Ryan’s mom passed this one on to us! Priceless.

I love it!! My daughter will be able to wallpaper her future house with all the artwork of hers I’ve saved 😉
So perfect, Dana, love the connection! It looks great on your wall too…
This is adorable and so psychic! I do have a painting of my teddy bear Erwin that I did at camp in 6th grade or so. The painting is on a shelf above our bed and the bear hangs out on the bed itself. This is inspiring me to see what else I have saved that might match our current home!
Wow, he did a really good job! It looks wonderful on your wall and even more special since it’s from his past.
It was meant to be!!
I remember this hanging at the folks house. You are talented Dana!♥
