A Welcome for a Baby

Where’s Tabitha?

Kim’s expecting Baby Tabitha, and her friend commissioned me to write her name in wire, to hang over the crib. The letters are entwined with vines and leaves to go with flowers that Kim will hang around the name. The white wire will show up against the light blue walls, which will also form the sky color for a flowery mural across the room.

By the time Tabitha is 5 years old, she may decide that her favorite color is pink and that she wants dinosaurs, not flowers. Then at 12 she may want purple and dragons. Then at 15, perhaps she’ll paint the room black and hang skulls on the wall. But for now, Kim gets to enjoy some pure baby design for her blossoming baby girl.
