Hope you had a lovely weekend. We had a visitor in town -- the kind of visitor that is welcome to come back anytime and stay as long as she likes. I'm serious. (Hear me, Lucy? Come back anytime!)
Just going to jump right in here. To be honest, I don't have a lot of time -- Felix is at the other end of the table making snakes out of playdough, and although everything is fine now, things could go south any minute.
So... I'll just tell you. I'm obsessed with baskets and buckets. Dustin pokes fun at me regularly about this, but I continue obsessing and collecting unphased. I mean, aren't they necessary for keeping stuff organized? Yeah, I thought so. Can someone please tell that to my husband.
After purchasing this pattern a while back, I am in heaven. I can make a new bucket in no time flat, so whenever I have a thought like, "we could use a place to keep all the pretend food", I now have a nifty solution. A handmade bucket solution. Perfecto.
Okay, back to playdough snake-making.
p.s. It's been a while since I have done a photo week around here. Going to try that on for size the rest of the week. No more words, just photos. :)
as promised, here's a peek at the other creation by Pigeon Toe Ceramics I received as a gift recently. it's a little test tube vase that currently hangs in my kitchen window. such a sweet way to have a few flowers in sight, and I don't know about you, but I spend quite a lot of time at my kitchen window. doing dishes, daydreaming about what soup/baked good/dinner/dessert I want to make, watching out for the cardinal that is often perched on the fence nearby, or sometimes even taking a couple of deep breaths when the day is one that requires deep breaths. flowers are always nice to have in view.
thanks again for the great gifts, mom. and thanks to my sweet husband for cluing her in on something handmade that I would certainly treasure.
I received some lovely graduation gifts when I finished grad school back in July. I've had my eye on several items from Pigeon Toe Ceramics for a while and was thrilled when I opened a package from my mom to see this sweet ceramic bird house inside. Although it was somewhat difficult to hang it outside -- it's so nice --it now hangs under an eave on our front porch. I'll show off the sweet other Pigeon Toe creation soon (too dark inside to snap a photo).
Hope you had a great holiday weekend. We gardened and grilled with new friends and their littles and continued to settle in here. Made some progress in that department, and also found that the NC tag sale gods are as nice to me as they were when we lived here almost six years ago. Woot!
I'm a big fan of Wee Gallery. I used their woodland wall decals in Felix's nursery and am so glad I did. He loves looking at them; although, he tore the raccoon's tail off one day while he played in his crib ever so quietly!
Just saw they now have tattoos. Too cute. Might have to give these out at one of our upcoming baby parties.
Mother's Day is quickly approaching. I am thrilled to be celebrating for the very first time this year. Not sure what Felix has in store, but whatever it is I'm sure it will be super sweet and possibly quite drooly.
Thinking about being a mama on Mother's Day got me excited about creating a little gift guide. Here's what I came up with. Fun. Fun.
I've been sweet on using old silverware as garden markers for a while now. This set is perfect and easy on the wallet.
