Festive Pillows

I have been wanting to make some festive July pillows for some time now.  Yesterday I decided it was time to whip some out.  I made these two for inside our house.  I saw the idea for the blue and white one on pinterest.  My super creative sister-in-law Erin, gave me the idea for the other blossoms.

I found this nautical outdoor fabric at Joann's.  I usually don't love the fabric there but this made my heart sing.  It is kind of hard to see in this photo, but the lighter fabric has maps and boats on it. All the outdoor fabric at Joann's is 1/2 off this week.  This is one of my favorite spots in the morning.  Out on our front porch in the swing.  I take my breakfast out there a lot, to enjoy the warm sun.

Cute find

I happend to go to a Walmart this week in St.George.  There I found a darling line of clothes from a sweet little bird named bella.  I know Walmart, of all places to find clothing I would expect to find in a boutique! Well the thing is, only certain Walmart's have them.  Check out their web sight to see their products and find a Walmart near you!

Color make's my heart sing

Color make's me so happy.  I don't have a favorite color, just color combinations that change from time to time.  Any time I see things like this I want to create.  I cant wait to post my latest creation.  Stay tuned.  For now enjoy some of my color love.

Treasures from Grandma M.

We recently lost our sweet Grandma McConkie.  She was a positive, loving woman who I am so grateful to have known.  This week I got to go to her home and pick out a few of her things to call my own.  Each of these things I will treasure.  I will think of her every time I see them in my home.  I will think of how good she made me feel every time I saw her, I will think of her smile and the love I had for her.  I will post later where I place each of my new treasures in my home.

Still thinking

I am still thinking of bunk bed ideas.  I could really use some help.  I am just really bad at making up my mind.   My boy's are getting really anxious and I now have the "go ahead" from the husband.  It's time to get my thoughts in order and make a decision.  I love the book cases and little desks in this one.

I realize this is not the best photo, my kids have been playing with the camera.  This is my bountiful basket I picked up today.  Every time I get my basket I can't believe all we get for only $15 green ones!  A bag of potatoes, grapes, strawberries, a cantaloupe, a head of cauliflower, two tomatoes, five apples, bananas, roman lettuce, celery and eight ears of corn, yummy!
