File this one under “super creative,” “incredibly beautiful” and, maybe “a tiny bit strange”: Artist Queenie Liao, a freelance artist and mom based in California, decided to photograph her baby son, Wengenn, while he was napping and create these fairytale-like dreamscapes out of clothes, stuffed animals, and other common household items. “Every day, just before Wengenn’s nap, I would imagine him being the main character in one of my favorite [fairytales], and ‘paint’ a background setting with plain clothes, stuffed animals, and other common household materials, just like how an artist would with her paintbrushes,” she says.

Pretty cool, right?

    I think I had about word for word the same reaction as you when I saw this!! It’s crazy + beautiful but also… just … I think it’s hard for me. Sleeping is just such an intimate thing. But sleeping babies are beautiful so why the heck not?!

    Did you ever see Mila’s Daydreams?
    The newer posts are crafts, fan art, contests, etc. but she used to do the same thing with her daughter Mila.

    I don’t know which artist started it, but I love the concept. So sweet and beautiful.

    When I saw this, I immediately starting thinking about if I could do this with my dogs when they nap. Then I realized just how eccentric that was. I so enjoyed these photos.
