Ars Gratis Artis

Because I'm a nerd, I know that this is Latin for "Art for the sake of art." (It's also the phrase imprinted on the gold circle around the MGM growling lion that's shown at the beginning of all of their movies...betcha didn't know that, didya? Did I mention I'm a nerd?)

ANYWAY, I'm sharing with you today art for the sake of....CUTENESS!!! These are pictures of Dawson's nursery, which was lovingly designed by my dad (art teacher) and mom (preschool minister), and painted by every member of my immediate family.

See the painting that says "Dawson"? That was designed and painted by arteest extraordinaire, Kim Wheeler, who lives right here in Murfreesboro! She has actually put pictures of it on her website and her blog, too. We're famous! You should visit her site at She designs and paints adorable customized art for kids and grown-ups alike! Check it out!

Oh Lauren it is just adorable!!! I can't believe that your family painted everything. Just too cute.

You should visit our's a really random site called pleonast...a lot of Adam's friends use it so it's just what we went with. Anyway, go to to see the blog. You would have to create an account to leave a comment but it's super easy to do.

Talk to you soon!
