Tiny Style Tips: Fashion


We spent a long part of our weekend indoors. In fact, I spent the entire duration of Saturday in the house. Didn't even step outside once. It rained, heavy, relentless rain. We watched movies together, we curled up together, we cuddled in bed, and Sunday, we busted out the watercolours. I love the gentle-ness and unpredictability of watercolours. They very much remind me of my grandmother, Mars, who loved painting with both watercolours and oils.
While the Doctor painted a 'coconut tree' with coconuts that shoot off - Tiny invested her painting time in painting 'fashion'. Fashion - for those who don't know, consists of mixing every single colour together, sullying the colours, until it's just one big black palette of black, dirty, dirty black paint. This is 'fashion'. We had to gently break it to Tiny that while fashion was her thing, we weren't feeling the power of fashion. Regardless of our feedback, Tiny continued with 'fashion' - painting page after page with her fashion-forward watercolours.
Apparently black is back. Take that as Tiny's style tip for the week.

I would love a bit of black. We are averaging about 25-30 pictures of rainbows per week. I am SERIOUS!
