I found this beautiful vintage book about indoor plants at the thrift store today. It's from the 1970's. In this case, you can judge a book by its cover! The illustrations are amazing. I'm almost tempted to frame some of these pages. I think I may do a little plant shopping this weekend...
If you are a plant lover, I have recently added more macrame plant hangers to my shop. I've designed a new hanger for smaller plants/pots.
Have a great weekend!

Oh February, you have been quite the month! I'm looking forward to March and hopefully an end to this crazy winter. Valentine's Day was nice- my daughter gave me a card this year. It's so adorable. 
I've been sewing a lot lately, mostly softies which I'll be adding to my handmade shop soon. I'm in the process of making some changes with that shop, adding more items for children. I'm excited about this new direction. It feels like a good time to change things up!

Cold and snowy weather always puts me in the mood to crochet. I've crocheted five projects so far this winter, that shows you what kind of winter we're having! I'm so ready for spring...
I love this slouchy beret, especially on my little one. I bought the e-pattern on Etsy from Pixiebell. It's a very easy pattern and it only takes me about four hours to complete a hat. It's so satisfying to complete quick little projects like this. Now, back to crocheting!

Hello 2014! A new year and a fresh start for this blog. I've decided that my one little word for the year is "complete." Last year I struggled with following through with things- and sometimes even being afraid to start. If I make a goal now, I want to complete it. No more excuses, I mean what am I waiting for? This will be the year of action. Of doing. Being in the moment and becoming a better person through that.
I also love that the word "complete" also means that I have everything already. I am whole. Sometimes I tend to forget that. 
Here's to a wonderful year!

Our garden growing wonderfully. We are enjoying our spinach, lettuce, and radishes right now. It's funny how my little one only likes "outside spinach" or lettuce as she calls it. She'll eat it if it's freshly picked. I can't wait for our cucumbers, onions, strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, peppers, snow peas, zucchini, broccoli, and carrots - I think I got them all down! We have quite the crop of strawberries, which are just starting to turn pink. I may even try to make strawberry jam this year. Mmm...
