get a little, give a lot

The situation in Japan is devastating. I wanted to post quickly here to let you know, that I am donating 50% of the sales from two of my items to try and help out a little. Here are the items you can purchase and I in turn will donate $10 to the Japan relief through https://www.samaritanspurse.org.


Here are also some other wonderful items from my pals on Etsy that you can purchase to help donate. These are just a few of the items and shops that are donating money to help out. Thank you so much for helping to support this cause.

spring and curtains

I am getting to the point where I can't take it anymore! The kids are restless and my skin is begging for some sunshine. I've been trying to escape in my work but after a bout of the stomach flu I was really just sick of being in the house. Now I'm dreaming of something that is driving my husband crazy....curtains!

I know, I know. They are an evil thing. So expensive and never quite what you are looking for. I'm hoping to find some nice vintage ones if I get a chance to do some thrifting tomorrow. For now I'm searching the internet for things that grab my attention.

I bought a set of white sheer curtains with a circle pattern on them at Target for the porch (figures I'd make that pretty before the inside of the house) and I love them!

So, that's about all that's on my mind at the moment....curtains. lol

Here's a funny picture of Sophia. She fell asleep while eating her lunch...wonder what she's dreaming about. Hmmmmm.
