“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” --Picasso

I have more then a few artists in my Home Sweet Cottage.

Art that is original....
Art that matches my home perfectly....
Art that I really cherish...
Art that I will always keep...
And most important, I know the artists personally!

It's so fun to see children's artwork. I love the things I get from my grandchildren, and I still have artwork that my girls did when they were growing up. Thanks for sharing.

Blessings,
Wanita

I love the row of turkeys all decorated!

The children must love to see their work on display. I have an idea-find a wall and add cork to it (I think you can paint it)! I saw it on one of the makeover shows and it's awesome.
And I do have to say they are very talented.

This is so sweet! And just filled with pride. Love it.

Happy show n tell today. Stop by if you can find time.

Our home looks a lot like that. But I wouldn't have it any other way. I take pictures of the art work and then place it in an album for the children.

I love your blog! I am a fellow-mother of 6. My youngest is 17. She did bring some pottery home from her ceramics class:) I miss getting the children's artwork --but last weekend my little neice and nephew surprised me with some from them!:)
You have a lovely display of your children's artwork--are they signed?:)

The artwork is pricless and precious. I know I've got a refridgerator with artwork hung all over it.

ok that is soooo SWEET! I saw something I think it was on pottery barn how they would just hang like 5 or 9 different square frames wtih nothing in them... So you could keep haning up the childs art. Its such a colorful thing...and beautiful! I love how colorful your childresn art is! So cute

Nothing is more special than something one of my grandchildren draws or paints for me. I love to hang them and display them. Your children are so talented. I found a box full of my artwork from the 50's. You might want to save theirs for them someday!
Love, Ann

Wonderful...The children are fortunate to have their art work so nicely displayed. I am sure it provides incentive to keep on creating.

I love that you display your children's art everywhere - you will treasure these more than any famous painting you could hang instead!

Very cute. I love the plaque about little houses. And good for you for doing the Thanksgiving tree. I want to do it, but my little one won't get it yet.

Elena said...

Ahh, I love children's art best of all. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to draw. I'll be like you a post it with pride!
