Anyone else started doing some fall baking? Even though it is still very hot here, I went ahead and made up a batch of pumpkin cookies (I used a box mix for the cookies and made my own cream cheese frosting…..yum). I also made a tiny little owl for a special little girl using this pattern. Then I decided my girls each needed one too. And I also made an adorable fox hat and bow clip for a baby present (I just adjusted a baby earflap hat crochet pattern to work for my yarn and added on ears I made freestyle). Kind of want to make a fox hat for my girls now.
Relished our time at Virginia Beach. Oh how I miss living near a beach…..a real beach anyways.
Played around with some spaghetti o’s; visited local vintage shops with my wonderful friends; and miss E has a new found love for brushed and pretend painting (Don’t worry! I removed the brush right after I discovered she had taken it to nap).
This is a shelf I repainted. It was gifted to us by the man who made it. I of course don’t have it styled so beautifully right now, as my littles would break all of that stuff, but it makes a perfect spot for our printer to live for now.
And, lastly, one of my diy necklaces made an appearance in an issue of Cloth magazine. It’s a teeny tiny appearance, but still made me happy I’m going to be working real hard tomorrow finishing up pictures of my humble house to share on Life Made Lovely’s blog soon! I’m a bit nervous as the people she asks have such great style and my decor is still a work in progress, but I’m sure something will inspire someone out there. Will be back sharing on that soon. Good night ya’ll!
