diy woodland animal pins

i think these woodland animal pins from oh happy day are so sweet! she used them as party favors for a woodland themed celebration (see also this woodland backdrop and woodland party invite!), but they would also be darling to use as an accessory or to give as gifts. it’s been a long time since i’ve used clay and paint, but it’s one of my favorite mediums to play with. head on over to oh happy day for the full tutorial!

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?

pretty pegs

i’ve been scouting out pretty leg options for our karlstad sofa lately. we’ve had ours for over a year now, and though we’re super happy with the sofa, i think i’m ready to update the stock ikea legs. i at least painted them white after we purchased the sofa, but they are still kind of blocky and blah. it seems like there are a lot of options out there and i’ve had so much fun discovering them all! though i may try to diy this project myself, i couldn’t help but fall in love with the legs from prettypegs. i thought you might like to discover them as well! they are made specifically for furniture from ikea- so you can have fun adding spice to your pieces!

a day in the life

a day in the life

it’s a rare occasion that my husband gets to work from home, but i delight in it when he does. he creates this kind of buzz around the home that is energetic and motivating. he always has music playing (i usually work in silence) and a delicious french press brewing. we were working together last week letting bear play in between our stations and i looked up to this scene midday. i grabbed my camera quickly documented the happy moment. i love my boys so much.
