If this image is familiar to you, you might be a “Cotton Brother” child! Our dad is an agronomist aka a soil scientist. He knows everything there is to know about things that grow from the ground. He’s been a consultant all across AZ, CO, NV and CA. He’s highly sought at during water right court cases and we often went with him to work, since his work consisted of driving back dirt roads sipping his Mountain Dew and snacking on handfuls of peanuts.
We have a deep love of cotton because of the sweet memories of our dad. The best story that is now a classic in our family is my dad’s big April Fools joke on our mom. When we were just 4 months old, my mom woke up to her twins MISSING. Instead of relaxing (we’re number 6 and 7 in our family of now 9 kiddos) she freaked out. In our place was a note from our jokester father, he sent her on a day long SCAVENGER hunt to find us!! Ah hahah!! So funny! He said he just set us on the floor of his truck and we slept all day, the rumblings of the dirt road keeping us asleep.
We saw the adorable wreath from the talented Handmade Home (second one down) and it inspired us to create this adorable roundup. Natural decor is so fun to decorate with and cotton is simply pretty! We’re loving all these decorating with cotton ideas and hop you do too!
