My Recent Project

It is unfortunate that I don't have a "before" picture but I didn't think that far ahead. Kati Ann has been in Texas this week so I only had one child to take care of so it seemed like a good time to do a project that I've wanted to do for months. We bought this table on Craigslist not long after moving into our house. The metal was a nickel color and the seats were covered in a plaid (that Kati Ann did a real number on with food & other things). So, my project was to recover the cushions with a more durable, kid-friendly fabric and paint the metal an oil-rubbed bronze. Here is the result. I'm quite excited about it.

5 weeks

Our sweet little boy 5 weeks old.

For the Birds

Something we love about our new house is the neighborhood we are in. We get to enjoy so much wildlife. We have rabbits in our backyard, turtles walking down the street and birds (there are other wildlife that we haven't enjoyed so much but we'll focus on the good kind!).
We have had 2 different Wren nests that we have gotten to enjoy. The first one was in Kati Ann's swing but a strong wind blew it away before we got to see the eggs hatch. Here is our second one that was on our front porch in a pot of tulips that I had. We got to see the eggs and then got to see baby birds.
