Happy Birthday Katy! {and my Lille Dress}

I know I have been insanely quiet around here, so much has been going on, I just haven’t had time to post (and frankly my computer has pretty much not been unpacked in weeks.) We have left Korea, fit in a Hawaiian vacation as a stop over on our way to the US, and spending…

A Witch and a Plague Doctor {Halloween 2014}

    Since my mom was visiting, I made her a Halloween costume too! Because she grew up in Africa, she has never had a real Halloween costume, so it was fun making her one! She wore the witches hat that went with Emmie’s costume last year, and was a medieval style witch. I made…

Painted Bedside Tables

  The last time I was in the US, I was thrift shopping and found 2 bedside tables for only $12 a piece, (even though I didn’t live anywhere near the thrift store, and couldn’t take them back to Korea with me,) I just couldn’t fathom leaving them there when they spoke to me, and…

A Tale of Two Quilts {pinspired}

I have fallen off the planet!

Four Generations {photo of the day}

We have been home for a week now, and I still feel wiped out from the trip! We were traveling for more then 24 hours by the time we got back from Peru to the house, and I wasn’t feeling amazing for a few days from a migraine that I had gotten our last full…

Many Happy Returns of the Day!

Today has never been a day that has stood out to me as the occasion on which a little groundhog decides how much more winter there is; my whole life, today has stood out to me as the birthday of a most singular lady.  When I was a little girl, we could say anything and my mom…
