My New Favorite Thing – The Bird Dome

French Country Bird Dome Candle Holder

French Country Bird Dome Candle Holder

I love this piece I found, its in great  condition! Anything to do with birds I snap up soon as I see it. I almost kept this for myself, I think a citronella candle inside would work great and set on an outdoor patio table to keep the nasty west nile buggers from circling.

The New Website is complete!

0I am beyond thrilled that our new boutique site is finally up and running. Took a lot of reading on my part to try and step out of my comfort zone into the internet land. I am a fast pinner on pinterest, but learning computer code and how to navigate the web hosting has been a challenge to say the least!
I am so excited to be able to share our shop online with all of you, looking forward to many years of fun, and hoping to forge some new friendships along the way!

Champagne and Popsicles? Why …Yes Please!

Champagne and Popsicles? Why ...Yes Please!

Mother’s day weekend is approaching….and I love this idea of a super easy drink that is celebratory for a BBQ. Because in my household…any day is a good day to have a little fizzy champagne ( or sparkling juice for the kiddos ) . My husband is amazing…but I know unless I buy that bottle myself….he won’t realize to grab it unless it is on a post it note stuck to his forehead. So happy mothers day weekend to me, I will get it done like moms are famous for always. CHEERS to you moms out there!

Lunch Anyone?

Lunch Anyone?

I wish I could say that I have been on holiday and visiting this gorgeous place…..Moulin de L’Abbaye, Brantôme, France. Instead I have been slacking at getting my blog off and running….my three little darling boys have kept me running to and fro…and frankly, this year has been exhausting! Summer is nearing again though, and I am ready to get back to business…..maybe next year I can squeeze in a trip to sip café at this stunning French establishment. For now though, I will settle for my pinterest boards and the strange happiness they evoke in me…..its like virtual hoarding…..I can’t get enough as I am sure many other women out there agree with me.

Let the Summer Begin!!!

Let the Summer Begin!!!

I received a call today while out running errands from my dad who says ” meet me in 5 minutes on the side of the road, I have something for the boys….” so being the great mom I am, I zipped over to meet him and this is what he hands to me….the things moms do for their boys, ugghhhh. I am creeped out cause they are staring up at me while I am driving, but they are gonna be so excited when I pick them up from the last day of school! This pic probably doesn’t fit in well with the cottage chic style I am trying to get across, but my dad is just too fun not to talk about once in a while, he is an amazing Papa to my boys!

Good Morning….

Good Morning....

The week has been bustling with all my little rabbits ( aka….boys ) off to school for their final week….with only 4 days left until summer break. So far this week I have been bombarded with questions of ” what are we going to do for summer? ” ” Where are we vacationing?? ” I am anticipating a jam packed summer of fun, full of frog hunting, beach days and tons of ice cream. In between the chaotic joy of my life with all boys….I hope to cram in tons of girly time for me, treasure hunting and creating new pieces for my boutique!
