{rose hair clips} take two

In February I wrote a post about some hair clips that I made for a baby shower gift.

Recently I made another (easier) version of them!

First, I found rolls of ribbon in the dollar section at Target.

The hair clips are from Michaels. If I were to do this project again I  would try to find the smaller clips at a beauty supply store.

If anybody has any tips on where I can find them in the Portland area please let me know!

I used this tutorial from Jones Design Company to create the ribbon covered hair clips. These are super cute by themselves, but I wanted to embellish some of them even more.

I used the same tutorial from here to make the felt roses.

I made them in all different color combinations.

They look adorable on baby girl.

But, she either wants to wear all of them or none at all!

I think I might put these in my Etsy shop as my first item ever…what do you think?

home is…reminding you all, once again, that I love flowers.

{summer in snapshots} week four

Our week was shortened due to our beach vacation, which I promise to post about soon.

So, I have photos from Wednesday through Sunday.

Wednesday and Thursday we were just trying to get back into the swing of things after our vacation. The only photo I took is of the kids in baby girls crib!

Friday we went to playgroup and I did not bring my camera…oops!  Needless to say, the kids got messy playing in the water and sand at Tualatin Community Park!

Friday night, as promised, we turned the little guys bed around so the ladder to his top bunk is no longer against the wall. There is a photo of him sleeping in the top bunk for the first time.

Saturday and Sunday we spent lots of time together as a family…it was great!



Playing in a tent.

Eating s’mores.

Going for a run.

At the pool.

On a walk in the neighborhood.

Good times.

home is…summer is going too fast.

*linking up with The {Starfish} Blog again this week…


I have been searching for the perfect bedding for years.

Last night I found it.

Sunflower Organic Duvet Cover & Sham

In the pages of my Pottery Barn catalog.

If you know me in real life, you know I LOVE sunflowers.

And, now I know where my “sunflowers” sign from the Farm Chicks show will go!

Now, I just need to call the painters to get the horrible chair rail and “duck blind” faux finish off our bedroom walls.

Oh, this is going to be a fun before and after post!

By the way, I am also working on another bedroom redesign…for the little guy!

And, someday soon, before she is big enough to move out of her crib, I will be finished with baby girls room.

I promise some photos!

Stay tuned…

home is…being patient for the right one.
