Remember that little deal we have going with my friend Noelle of Xenotees? She sends us free clothes (the whole family) and we model them for her shop. It’s been going on for a few years now. I love a good trade, but I'm certain we got the best part of this deal…free clothes!!!
A few weeks ago, a giant box stuffed with new shirts for all of us arrived on my doorstep - wahoo! I've been photo-ing like a mad woman. :)
Check out her shop for the newest stuff, including this fun Mother's Day Special. Matchy matchy!

Little Birdies

A new family just moved in to our birdhouse. We watched the mom nest and nest for weeks and then one day we heard little squeaks coming from the birdhouse. Then finally, we saw them poking their itty-bitty heads out for a quick bite. The mom trusts us a tiny bit...but she won't keep her back to us for long when it's feeding time. I snapped a quick picture through the window tonight at dinner.

The kids check on those birds morning noon and night. Ruthie watches and waits patiently, yelling "WOOK! WOOK!" when the mama appears with a snack. She tells them "nigh-nigh" at bedtime sweet.

They're getting so big! I'll be sad to see them fly away. (the birds too)

Easter Eggs

A few days ago the kids and I dyed some eggs together. I'm pretty sure I haven't done that since I was a little kid! I love it. There's something about those simple smooth pastel egg shells that has me smitten.
Definitely worth the $3 and the mess. :)

Pillow Covers

Oops. I was browsing through my old photos and realized I never posted about these! They were on this DIY To Do List from a few months back.
I loosely followed this tutorial. It was one of the quickest and easiest sewing projects I've done...right after burp cloths. It would make a great project for any beginners out there.

I mixed stripes and prints from Ikea. I think that navy stripe is my favorite. I might make a few more of those one day. Given the simplicity of the project, it would be a breeze to make a stack of covers to change out seasonally or whenever your room needs a makeover.
Sorry there's no step-by-step photo. I must have made these when we were between borrowed cameras.
