play house

Saw this on Pinterest and I Love every little detail.  The wood floor on the front porch, the shutters, and the landscaping!  I would love to do this for Finley for her birthday this summer!

henry's birthday inspiration

I feel like a slacker mom.  I had big plans for Henry's 2nd Birthday party.  And then life happened...
So at the last minute I am trying to get ideas put together for my sweet little almost 2 year old.
This kid loves tractors and all things dirty and boy.  
So we are having his party in the shop, inviting all of his cousins (which mainly consists of boys) and letting them do their thing.  Here are the adorable invitations I ordered from

spring colors and layers

I think it is safe to say we are all yearning for Spring.  What a yucky dull winter.  There hasn't even been any snow to make it pretty outside.  So for a cheerful fix trying warming up your spring pastels with layers, boots, and a big chunky scarf.

my stairway

This is the stairway that has had 100 makeovers, caused many falls, and scares little children.
Adam and I have painted these so many times, then he has placed down new boards and they have been stained and then repainted.  At the moment I love my stairs minus the fact that they are dangerously steep and show dirt easily.  I could leave them as they are or I could put down a runner. 

I have ordered a matching gold frame for the work hard print on the wall...

I think this leopard print runner is the #1 contender for my stairs.  
What do you all think?  I love leopard! It is trendy yet has staying power.  If it is out one year you can guarantee its back again the next.  And for under $40.00 for 6 1/2 feet I think it's a done deal.

I would love to hear what you think...

I am heading out for a run and hopefully when I come back this morning I will have a clear head and blog about something fabulous!  Getting ready to take Finley to school with her Valentines.  We bought the Valentine play doh. I felt creative without having to be creative. oops!

I am a little behind on Valentine's for Finley's classmates this year.  Candy is not encouraged and I just don't want to buy Dora the Explorer pre made Valentines.  Who know's, it is the day before her party so it just might happen.  I did see these ideas on Pinterest though.  After her Dr. appt. in Springfield we may be running to target for supplies!  Any other cute ideas?  Please share!

cheerful yellow

Yellow is so cheerful and cheerful is much needed in the dead of winter when winds are blowing 40 mph.  I don't know about you folks but I am so ready for spring weather, planting my garden, and adding to my landscaping.  Enough of this dreary winter.
