Hi there! I hope life has been treating you well this week. We’ve had a pretty crazy one, and it’s only Tuesday! But, oh my goodness, the weather these last few days! It’s been warm and sunny and just perfectly sublime, so I was pretty thrilled to have an excuse to be outside today making this darling little arrow you see up there. [Read more…]
I’ve been feeling pretty nostalgic this week – I’m not sure why.
Maybe it’s the fact that I’ve been wrapping up an adorable little playroom project, or the fact that my two oldest have been making breakfast for the family, all by themselves for the last couple of months. Whipping up scrambled eggs on the hot plate that their Oma bought them for Christmas last year, giggling and disagreeing about how much salt to put in. How did they go from toddling around and needing diaper changes, to making breakfast?! [Read more…]
Hey there, Everybody! I hope your week’s off to a great start. I have a simple Thanksgiving table to show you all today! And you don’t have to break the bank setting it either.
See? Ain’t it cute? And it’s so simple to put together. Really. [Read more…]
Hey Everyone! I have a really fun no-sew pillow cover tutorial for you today!
I wish I could take the credit for thinking up this simple little project, but I can’t. I actually came across it a couple of years ago on a blog called Organize & Decorate Everything. Let me just tell you, this is such an awesome way to change the look of your space without spending a bunch of money – particularly at the holidays – if you have a bit a fabric laying around.
In the past, I’ve made these with curtains, sheets, older wool blankets, the options are endless really. And I’ve wanted to share this with you for so long, but just haven’t had a chance to take the photos and get this post up! I can’t imagine why! It’s not like we’re busy over here or anything. *wink.* Life can just get crazy, can’t it?
Speaking of which, you should have heard how loud my house was after dinner tonight. I’m not sure how 3 kiddos can somehow sound like 23, but let me tell you, it’s possible. I’m sure some of you can relate. We try our best to keep things in balance over here – the projects, our work, our family time [Read more…]
Hey there! I can’t believe it’s already been almost a week since my last post! I had every intention of having this up last weekend, but that turned out to be wishful thinking. My mother in law is visiting from Germany right now, and we decided to do something we haven’t done with her in eight years! We went on a little getaway. Normally when she’s here, we sink into our normal, fairly humdrum routine, and before we know it, three weeks have gone by and the most exciting thing we’ve done together is grocery shop! We decided to take the kids out of school and head up to the White Mountains in New Hampshire for a couple of days, then spend the last few in Kennebunkport, Maine. I planned to pack Saturday night after the birthday party, write and post the birthday photos Sunday morning, and then head on our merry way. Well, yeah. That did not happen. [Read more…]
If you follow my Willow Street Interiors page on Facebook, you may have read that I have a special post and a giveaway coming up this week. Well, this is that post! A little backstory. World Market is one of my favorite places to shop. The place is like Disney World for grown ups. Seriously, so much cute stuff under one roof it gives me minor heart palpitations. I cyber stalk their website on a weekly basis drooling over their adorable accessories and really reasonably priced, good quality furniture. A couple of weeks ago, my sister (who knows how obsessed I am with World Market) called me and said, “Did you know there’s a World Market opening in Natick?!” [Read more…]
Happy Sunday, Everyone! It’s been such a gorgeous weekend. Perfect weather, a little relaxation and catching up with housework, breakfast on the porch – all in all a fabulous weekend that culminated in devouring this luscious cake (that also happens to be gluten free). My oldest daughter is turning 8 this week, and we’re having a little fall themed birthday party with family next weekend. [Read more…]
Hi there! How’s everything? We’ve been having some fabulous fall weather here in Massachusetts and the kids, my husband and I have been trying to soak up as much fall sunshine as we can. We bought a little bike seat for our youngest (I don’t know why we didn’t do that sooner?!) And we’re finally able to all bike together as a family. [Read more…]
Hey All! Sorry it’s been awhile! It’s been a crazy few weeks with back to school, and lots of business things going on. My second baby started Kindergarten this year, and I can happily report that she is absolutely loving it. I was nervous about it because she’s fairly young for her grade and isn’t nearly as outgoing as her big sister, but to my surprise, she’s taking it all in stride and has developed this new found confidence in being a big school kid!
