IN MOTION! Moving and More

This is just too cute to 
keep to myself.

A few of you know that 
my daughter has moved into a new/old  home.
She has the cutest little den in this house.

She painted the heavy old pine wood 
with a creamy white paint and found 
a down-filled couch, chair, a new rug
and accessories for the room.

It is comfortable and the kids like
spending time in there.

She found a piece that 
SweetCheeks drew when she was 
six years old.
It was for a school project and is titled
MOTION (or MOVING)

Ready?
Is that not the cutest thing you have ever seen?
Notice the arrows pointing which way they are moving?

I told my daughter that is a 
REAL TREASURE!

Good job, SweetCheeks!!!!
She would have been in 1st grade.
Gotta love those dimples like her Daddy has!
Don't you just love dimples?
I do...
welll---except.....
  You don't want to see 
MY DIMPLES!
Trust me!

If I can twist my daughter's arm
I will show you some pictures of her new home.
She has great taste!

Have a great Thursday!
your photo name

I LOVE that piece of art! That is what it is!! Sweet Cheeks is an artist! Can't wait until she is world famous and I can say I knew her from your blog!! AND you don't want to see my dimples either, LOL. xx

That drawing is a treasure. I'm glad it's framed and hanging on the wall.

She is the cutest - inside and out! I love dimples on others ! Ironically, I have dimples and have never liked them on me!! (Of course, I also have the "other" dimples you alluded to as well, lol...like them even less! Thank goodness for Spanx!) Jane

I love when children's art is framed and displayed. It shows warmth and love in the home.

Karen L. Bates said...

She is so very talented...action drawings...very nice. She sure is a doll.

Connie said...

What is sweeter than having framed children's art. I have two framed pieces in the hall that our granddaughters did several years ago.
I do hope that your daughter will invite us into her home. I love new, old houses. :)

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

Great picture and great memory to go with it.

And I love the little pink skirts, which she added!!!! A girly-girl she is for sure.

I was going to say something, concerning the dimples........ But I didn't.... Too much info.

So happy for the happy den!!!!!!!!!

Linda said...

That is a great picture from a 6 year old! I agree, what a wonderful treasure.

This could not be more precious Diana! I adore old houses that are reinvented! What a blessing grandchildren are in our lives! Precious!

living from glory to glory said...

So glad your daughter found a new home I bet it just looks beautiful I think using art of our children or grandchildren and framing it is just so classy. I do hope you're having a great day we appreciate you dear hugs Roxy

Patty Patterson said...

What a treasure! I totally love Sweet Cheek's art. And I can't wait to see pictures of the room.

Stephen Andrew said...

So sweet! I love it. I'd love to see her house!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Well, let me just say that SweetCheeks was a better artist at 6 years old than I am today! That's really a good drawing! I'd love to see more of your daughter's home if you can twist her arm a bit. :)

Art and Sand said...

That is adorable.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I'd like to see more of your daughter's room with the painted paneling. I have a room with the heavy, knotty pine paneling...and I hate it. My kids love it, but they don't live here anymore, so why am I listening to them? I want to paint it when I ever can make time.
SweetCheeks is such a doll and I love her artwork!

Kim said...

That is a very special piece. I thought you bought it at a fancy shop. The kid's got talent...and a very cute face! ;)

Attic Clutter said...

Oh that is darling ..sweetcheeks did..she was a dolly too (:)
hug,Patty

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Oh, Diana, talk about your memories! She must be quite an artist to do that well in first grade. That's how my Dad was. No, I don't want to see your dimples, cuz I bet they are in the same place as mine! But, SC's are perfect. What a sweet little lady she is becoming and tell daughter that we would all be ever so grateful to see her lovely home..Happy Thursday..Judy

Row homes and Cobblestones said...

Omg Diana prints need to be made of Sweet Cheeks early art - seriously prints! Too precious. I have dimples (in my face) men love them - I hate them. At least where yours are they are hidden, just kidding,

The Joy of Home with Martha Ellen said...

Sweet Cheeks is most definitely an artist. She understood animation at that age? Wow---I hope she is persuing this interest! ♥

Holly @ Down to Earth Style said...

Ok Diana - you can't just tell us about those pine walls painted white without showing them to us. That is teasing - tell your daughter that your fans are demanding a photo.

Sweet cheeks is super pretty and talented. I see where she got her nick name.

xo

Nonnie said...

That truly is a treasure and I would most definitely like seeing pics of the home. Kids these days are so clever. I remember I didn't like drawing at that age because some older child made some remark about the skinny legs on the nurse I drew. Weird memory. So, the people who did the big C for you got a look at your dimples?!

Susie said...

Diana, I love that picture...it is art. I have framed a coupler pictures my granddaughter did when she was very young. I need to frame some of Emma's art...she is very good. I love the sweet photo of SC. So cute. Hope you had a great day. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Chatty Crone said...

That was an excellent job from my point of view - highly intelligent - and charmingly done. Of course it was by Sweet Cheeks - who else?

Missy George said...

Now that you have teased us, I would love to see some pictures of your daughters home..That drawing that sweet cheeks did is darling and well worth framing...She's very talented..Have a fun evening..

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Ooh how cute is that! She is talented- especially when you consider the age she was! I bet your daughter's home is cute.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Sweet cheeks has many talents!
And I do love her dimples.

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

Adorable and such a treasure to keep forever! Sweet Cheeks is a beautiful little girl!

Rose L said...

That is very amazing art for her age at the time! It also shows she had an idea of the mechanics of movement! I am glad it was framed and will be treasured!

Laurie said...

Twist her arm hard! I want to see pictures! That Sweet Cheeks does have some sweet cheeks and she's very talented. I would treasure her artwork, too.

Charm Bracelet Diva {at Home} said...

That artwork is truly awesome! She could probably sell it, not that she'd want to it's priceless! Sweet Cheeks is cute AND talented!:) xoKathleen

Have a nice evening. Tornado's here tonight! xo

Have a Daily said...

Sweet Cheeks is really quite the artist. Love the darling motion picture! I had big dimples as a child, but now are mostly gone. Could it be that I have fat cheeks now instead of sweet ones? lol!
hugs,
Jann

Carla from The River said...

Sweet as can be. :-)
I love how she framed it. Great idea and a true treasure.

Cathy @ My 1929 Charmer said...

Sweet checks is a sweet artist too. I had dimples but not on my face.....I love her artwork.

SpicingUpIdaho said...

How cute is that drawing! I'm glad she framed it! It is frame worthy for sure! What a sweet girl Sweet Cheeks is - rightly named! Look forward to pictures of their new/old home when she is ready to share! Have a wonderful evening :)

BeachGypsy said...

I hope she will let you make pictures to share with us. Are they liking it so far?

Vee said...

That child has talent! Which child? Both! Your daughter's den sounds very cozy and pleasant and, should she give permission, I'd love to see what she's been doing.
