Still Life~

This lovely vignette is courtesy of Mr. Two.


"The dinosaur go here, Mommy!" he said emphatically, pointing at the side table as I tried to convince him to put the orange plastic monster away with the other toys. "The dinosaur go here!"


Ya know, I just might leave it there. The kid has an eye for design.



Have a lovely Thursday~

So cute! I would leave it...every time you look at it you can smile and think of that moment :)

Sarah said...

How adorable and it looks like he can match well!

Marci @ All Things Wonderful said...

That is too cute! At least it matches!

Trisha said...

Thats a memory to stick in the back of your head. So cute! I think that leaving it for a while would make him feel so special. Way to go mom!

Tammy said...

That is too funny. And I must say, the dino looks really great there. You have a future designer on your hands. I have a side table in my family room and I let my boys "decorate" that table. Right now we have a World Wrestling Entertainment theme going on with various wrestler figures and a collectible bobble head. My boys love being able to have their signature touch in our room.

I think we have that dinosaurs brother. And he too finds himself in weird places around the house. But then again, I have three little boys who all love dinosaurs. Go figure!

Sheryl said...

I think he has an eye for decorating, too! Great spot for a dinosaur! The boys in my 3 year old class LOVE dinosaurs. Can't get enough!

Oh yes... He may want to get a few "guys" out staged and ready to ride the dinosaur. My tablescapes always turn into wonderlands for legos, Imaginext, and McDonald's toys. Way to keep your priorities in order...

How cute! I think it's great if you leave it out. I am a firm believer that even kids should have a say on what they like to decorate with. After all, it's their home too.

Hugs,

What a good little decorator! And he will always remember the special moment that momma let him help decorate, and that's what's truly important!

It looks great there.

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Hey, you know, the color of the dinosaur really "plays" off the color of those seed pods. I think the kid's got a future!

Amanda said...

That's super cute!
I'd say he's learning from the best. ;-)

Mind Your Manors said...

THAT IS AWESOME!!! So glad that you took a picture of that. I think that we should let our children decorate one day and all do a blog post about young designers.

Lisa said...

I can relate!

For the past three years, my Christmas village is inhabited by Pokemon figures. My daughter is 14 and doesn't play with them anymore, but every year at Christmas they come out and take over Christmas Town.

How sweet is that. He's got the color right. I have a little girlie that helps me decorate as well.

Shannon said...

He does! He is already color coordinating. :)

Holly said...

That is adorable!!!,...And it reminds me soo much of some little peeps that I share my home with. Oddly enough, I have to agree that it actually looks pretty darn good there!

Kathy's Red Door Welcome said...

Your son definitely has an eye for design. Look how well the color of that dinosaur compliments those flowers. You are a wise woman to leave that dinosaur in the photo.
My three grandsons would absolutely approve.

Valarie Lea said...
