saranoni blankets - snuggle worthy! (2)

and by snuggle worthy – i mean – i might never be able to unwrap myself from this blanket! saranoni’s bamboni blankets are luxuriously soft, warm and cozy. around my house, you can find the whole family wrapped up in one each night. bear loves his gingersnap receiving bamboni (above) and david and i can both comfortably snuggle together under the charcoal adult-size bamboni (below).

build your own hairpin leg tables via going home to roost (5)

several months ago, my dad gave me some old barn wood he had laying around (he knows me well!). i’ve been stowing them, just waiting for project inspiration to strike. and then it hit me- hairpin legs! i’ve been needing two skinny tables, one for under a mirror in our guest room (above) and one to use as a side table beside our sofa (below).

side note: see the it is well with my soul diy here!

this small version is the perfect size for right beside our sofa. i’m not going to lie, with baby bear around this table usually remains empty, but this is the way i would style it if tiny hands weren’t grabbing at all the things all the time. haha!

it was really easy to attach the legs. first, i marked on the big wooden boards where i needed them cut and had david size them down using a table saw. for such a small project though, i could have easily used a utility hand saw (girl power!).

i ordered the hair pin legs from and they arrived quickly and in perfect condition. all i had to do was attach them using 3 small screws (per leg). using a power screwdriver was a must for this step.

even though my boards were weathered and warped slightly they are even and very sturdy. the perfect addition, yes?!

my new gallery wall

gallery wall with change of art frames (5)

i struggle with big blank walls. i have always found it much easier to decorate around windows and shelves, or anything that provides a little structure. we have a large wall in our living room though, and after spending a year staring at it, i think i’m finally happy with it!

gallery wall with change of art frames (7)

a few months ago, i absolutely fell in love with the frames from change of art. let me tell you, this is one amazing company! first of all, the frames have a clean, modern look that would look good in any home (they are also available in black and alder brown). but more importantly, they are incredibly easy to hang (watch a video here), made in the U.S.A. and eco-friendly from the glass, frame and paint all the way down to the packaging.

each change of art frame comes with a paper template that’s printed to look like the frame, so you can arrange your gallery before you begin putting holes in your wall. once you’re happy with the look, all you have to do is nail in the ‘button hanger’ and remove the template. they even come with their own nail and blue painter’s tape to hang the template with! seriously, they’ve thought of everything. there’s also no need to ever touch (or clean!) the glass or matte. simply insert your photo into the slot and you’re ready to go. there’s also a convenient pocket on the back to hold several art prints in so you can change the art frequently without any hassle. (perfect for children’s artwork!)

most of the artwork is my own, besides a print from katie daisy and the homeground. tomorrow i’ll share with you how i made the brown wooden frames, and just in case you fell in love with my sweet as honey hexagon quilt, you can purchase the quilt kit here!

  golden dot decals (2)

larken’s nursery

golden dot decals. i absolutely love this trend! i think it’s such a fun and easy (not to mention affordable!) detail to add to a room. i especially like the idea for a children’s room or nursery since the dots can’t fall down or be pulled off the wall.

you can find confetti decals on etsy, urban walls or even make them yourself. anyone inspired?
