Aruba Grace
“February 2012 was Aruba Grace's first anniversary with my flock, which includes her sister Firooza Violetta, and brother Sonny C. Aruba’s other brother, Vic, sadly passed away in January after a battle with neurological issues. Near the end of Vic's life, Firooza started ignoring him; however, Aruba Grace was the one who stuck by him, feeding and warbling to him. I was worried she would stop eating when we lost him, however, she has adjusted well and is back to flying, bathing, singing, ringing bells, and swinging to bluegrass music. In fact, the flock is now getting along like the ‘Three Musketeers.’ One day, the trio made a group effort to push their bird bath off the cage top, sending it crashing to the floor and splashing the water out of it!”

This is the Fifth of an Eight-Part Feature on the designers’ vision and progress at the DC Design House, which is underway and set to open on April 14th.

Carolyn Wilson and Elizabeth Boland of Design in a Day in Bethesda, MD, www.designinadaydc.com, are taking on Space 14, the Second Floor Foyer in this year’s DC Design House. “The opportunity to completely transform and redesign a space together as a mother-daughter team has always been a goal of ours,” says Wilson, “and doing this project for Children’s National Medical Center makes it even more rewarding.”
