baby wraps

oh yeesh, all you lovelies having sweet little babies are giving me baby fever! izzy's been sleeping through the night since she was 8 months old so now that we've gotten a little sleep back it's about time for another right?! ha ha. okay, okay, i'll think on it. these wraps aren't helping either... just darling right!?


oh joy did a collaboration with solly baby and created a darling new print for spring!

have you tried these with your littles?! they look so sweet with babes all cuddled up inside. i already miss the baby phase!

plus there's even a matching little girls wrap for your toddlers babies, eek.
oh me oh my.

so adorable from solely baby

jewelry, meet technology.

okay, i've been drooling over these since i first saw em. sneaking in lil hints to the hubby that i want one so bad... is it gonna work?? {batting eyelashes} maybe. ha.



this is genius, smart, clever and hello, jewelry. and if you are like me and can't wear fake metals {true story} this is ideal!

more freedom from the devices we are so reliant on! i've gotten into the habit of reading my bible on said iphone and ipad which is all well and good BUT my sweet little izzy can't SEE the difference between reading news {and okay some mostly useless stuff, uh-hmm} and reading my bible! not okay. so making a little more of an effort to be technology free most days is a goal and a perfectly positive thing. hubby and i used to drive around without cells phones... back when they weren't invented yet, i mean, whaaaaa?? we're 21 and that's crazy talk.

i just love this concept of being notified if needed, but setting down all the useless stuff. and watch out date night... it's perfect for leaving technology put away {other than maybe a few pics} and still getting notified if the babysitters needs something :)

up-cycled.

these dolls are just the sweetest. i showed my little 18 month old the video and she reached for the screen wanting to hold one!

she loves dollies, stuffies and little things.



this sweet girl reminds me so much of our australian friends... we love their accents :) what a great idea making dolls look more natural and their little sweater outfits, so sweet!

light it up... for the home.



i'm happily updating a few things around my home... but talk about indecisiveness?! oh me oh my. i think i perhaps love too many style and textures and the hardest time narrowing it all down.

this week i'm working on bright lights.

one choice for above the dining table and a different one above the sofa.

these styles slay me...



but seriously how does one even pick light fixtures for their home!?! i mean they might be up 15 years?! waaaa?

ha.

and of course i want a steal or knockoff.

since my lights are in the same room, different ends, id like them to be similar but not? sheeshers.

happy shopping i guess :) please be a sale {uh hem crate&barrel}

gold everything.

january hits and my house feels SO empty!! no more twinkling lights and trees and sparkling things {my christmas home tour is over here though btw with all things sparkle - enjoy ;)} my decor now seems sad... and it just is not feeling fresh and energetic and is it too early to decorate for valentines??

so i am in search of some new fab ideas and trying to come up with a few... without spending a dime! is that even possible?! we shall see, we shall see. i could easily make a quick trip to the hoblob and spend all that sweet christmas cash and poof! ha. but it's so fun to be creative plus it's freeeeezing icicle cold out there, who wants to bundle up baby?!?! so i plan to get crafty and recycle some old frames and canvases and my years of college art supplies are filling up basement drawers anyway so it's time to dig in to the loot.

feelin' inspired by these living room sets and wall art ideas... darling! 


gold, black and white are my theme for the den. 

hearts, gold, love letters... whats not to love?

and that faux diamond i think you shall be made first! 

a printing press would come in super handy right now... oh well. 

off i go, baby naps! 

wish me luck... or something.

happy 2015!

thinking i am almost ready for the christmas twinkling lights and trees to come down ;)

hope your year ahead is uber blessed with God's love, peace and graciousness.
