Fabric Love

TonicLiving released some new fabrics and I’m obsessed with this one (above). I want to make a dress out of it for Summer. Well, I can’t sew, but I may bribe my mama to try to make something for me out of this.

I had ordered some samples awhile back as we’re considering redoing our bench in the kitchen (which is why I have been pinning Breakfast nook inspiration like crazy for the last six months). I LOVE the fabrics above. The one on the bottom left I love as an option for a bench (spills would wipe up so easily!) and the one on the bottom right I was considering for remaking Oscar’s headboard. I ended up buying a Queen duvet cover from H&M that mimicked the look at less of the price. But I’m still a fan of the fabric. (More on that project another time but bottom line – divert covers are a great source of fabric on the cheap sometimes).

Shopping Guide | Easter

Easter is official one month away! It is one of my favourite holidays, next to Valentine’s Day. It’s just pure fun and excitement seeing kids race around looking for Easter Eggs. Then dinner with the family and sneaking chocolates throughout the day. Here are some of my window shopping finds for Easter. First, there’s the beautiful baby toy that would be PERFECT for Baby’s first Easter.  Dylan’s Candy Store Easter Box would be perfect as a hostess gift if you were going to someone’s home for Easter Dinner. This Easter basket would be perfect for Baby’s first Easter, or as a gift for a niece or nephew, filled with goodies. I couldn’t let this shopping guide go without putting our Easter Bunny Pin Set in there, perfect as a little gift for a young adult or – parent. This box of Truffle Eggs would be a perfect gift for Grandma.

Blogging like it’s 2004

I’m not quite sure what it is, or, what has shifted, but I’m actually feeling back to my old self of blogging – to the days where I didn’t feel like there was a formula or, audience reading the post. The way I used to write in 2004. I once again feel the enjoyment of it and I’m less concerned about presentation of a post and just genuinely sharing random things that I love.  I don’t wait for a comment any longer because my joy of a post is no longer whether someone feels the need to reply, but it’s in the process of putting it together.

I used to do this – waaaay back when. But then the blog world go weird, I lost my love of it and fell into this weird “in between” space – somewhere between the boom of blog popularity to the shift to Instagram. But I like to write, I like to compile things I love – my blog is my hobby. It’s nice to be back at it with a positive mindset.
