I never really shared these before, at least not on this forum. A long time ago I did have these uploaded to certain sites but I took em down because people kept stealing em to claim as their own.
So this use to be my nursery when I lived in Australia. I was eighteen at the time and lived there almost two years. My daddy (I won't say names) and I were trying to get citizenship for me but in the end that's not what made me finally leave. I left because I found a photo album full of graphic nude photos of little children. When I found this he was away at work at the time (flight attendant, so gone for weeks at a time) which gave me more than enough time to wrestle the demons that told me I needed to get out. When he came home, I confronted him and there was really nothing else he could say. The only thing left for me to do was to fly back to the states.
No, it wasn't easy. This nursery was a fantasy come true. Technically I think it's the first Lion King themed nursery ever done so that alone always made me smile. He gave me full freedom on how i wanted to design it, decorate it, etc. The paint job alone took many sleepless nights because once I started, I didn't want to stop. Cathedral style ceilings are a bitch to paint but so worth it for the effect because there's no way not to feel little when you're in a room like this.
I do miss it. I don't have any regrets though because I could never live with myself if I stayed with someone who stood for everything I'm so strongly against.
Sorry to dampen the mood here. I know the first instinct is to think "nursery photos! COOL!" but this just goes to show a picture does speak a thousand words.
