Isaac

Canvas Covered Box-springs

Before moving, we bought Isaac a new smaller bed, his last bed was the heaviest thing ever (which is not great for our weight allowance) and was bigger in size, even though it was still a twin bed. We found him a great antique bed, but ran into needing to buy him a box-spring mattress, since…

Isaac’s Union Jack Dresser

I knew I wanted a Union Jack for Isaac’s dresser, so I set about Googling different images of union jack furniture, until this dresser from Daena at Bad Rabbit Vintage (the picture is a link to the image source if you click on it) popped up!    There was just something about this piece that…

Good Vibrations! {a boys swim costume!}

I’m totally posting out of order, and out of season here – but my wall reminded me today that I never brought this home this summer, so I am posting it here now, or it will probably never happen! This is a guest post I did for Melly Sews this summer. The only excuse I…

Oopa Gangnum Style! {Halloween 2012}

In honor of being in Korea, Isaac decided that he wanted to be Psy, of Oopa Gangnum Style fame for Halloween. Are you not familiar with Gangnum Style? Then you HAVE to watch the video, I die every-time I watch it, the words are really funny in English too, they talk about how it is better…

Out and About in Korea!

Yesterday Paul and I went out for a drive while the kids were in school, and it was so lovely we took them back today. I wish I could tell you the name of the place we found, but I am afraid I couldn’t read the signs! This is a statue from a Buddhist Temple…

Anthropologie Inspiration

EDIT: after writing this post, I had a complete change of plans come along, Emmie wanted to make an american girl doll dress, and Isaac wanted to make a hooded t-shirt out of fabric he picked at the LA fabric district – so no shawl collars or dresses for me today! (I like being flexible…

Potential {photo of the day}

We went shopping for school supplies today, and every year I am struck with a distinct sense of potential as I look into the cart and see all of those crisp and fresh supplies waiting to be used to help expand the minds of my not so little (anymore) ones.  I’m not looking forward to…

Eating at E-Mart {photo of the day}

We went out and about on the train the other day and visited a local store called E-mart (sort of like Korean Walmart). We walked around and perused the merchandise (I’m not going to be buying many clothes while here – I’m way to big and tall) and after a bit we found the food…

I’m Leaving on a Jet Plane…..

Well, we are on our way (I’m on the plane to S. Korea right now, we just haven’t taken off yet!)I’m not sure what our Internet situation will be as soon as we get there but we should arrive Wednesday morning (Korea time) and hopefully get a grip on what’s up then. The kids managed…
