You all know how much I love bags. And the beach. So big ol’ summer-y totes are absolutely at the top of my list right now. They feel like summer to me. I’ve been searching around to find fabulous tote tutorials and thought I’d share them with you guys as well (don’t be surprised if [...]

purse tutorial- metallic + neon beauty

metallic and neon purse tutorial

Adam and I were talking about Piper Jane recently and he asked, “Are all girls this girly?” Ha! She might’ve gotten an extra dose of love for all things pink, and sparkly (and, of course, sprinkled). Which means that, by now, my new metallic-plus-neon-pink purse has been commandeered and filled with ponies and hair bows [...]

  Thanks for all of the Little Piggie love, y’all (I have to admit, I am just about smitten as well), and for the Sew-vivor votes (I made it through to Round 2- Wednesday is the big reveal)! Today, I thought I’d share the tutorial for the little teeny bows. They are very much based [...]

Today’s the first day of Sewing for ME, friends! And I adore our first guest- Jess from Craftiness is Not Optional. I lo-ove Jess’s sew-alongs and the little girl wardrobes she’s creating one gorgeous addition at a time for her darling girls. I also love it that Jess knows how to throw a party (love [...]

The idea of an organized purse delights my heart. Just say it, “Purse Organizers.” Sounds good, right?   I have to say, a special spot for Burke’s change of clothes and accoutraments, a spot for Piper Jane’s extra clothes and diapers/wipes/creams, and a special spot for snacks has been revolutionary for my purse and its [...]

And, after a little searching, realized that there is some serious fabric flower tutorial goodness floating around. Serious. Goodness.

color my summer tutorial- WHITE anthro inspired necklace

After proclaiming my steadfast love for sundresses yesterday, today is the perfect day to showcase The Perfect Sundress Companion- a chunky statement necklace. Better yet, today’s Beachcomber Necklace pairs equally well with capri’s and a t-shirt (great for those sundress naysayers out there). We saw this gorgeousness at Anthropologie and fell in lo-ove with the [...]

vintage rose wrap knock off tutorial

Funny story- we *met* today’s guest when her knock off duvet kicked our knock off duvet’s tail in the Knock It Off contest at 733. Haha! Don’t you love that? And, while we’re on the topic, isn’t her duvet fabulous? Duvet tail-kicking aside, she is pretty darn great and we’re so glad for the chance [...]

While today’s Sincerest Form of Flattery Guest needs no introduction, we still want to tell you a few of our favorite things about Ashley from Little Miss Momma! She is about the cutest person we know (seriously, how can someone look that cute in every. single. picture?), she is head over heels for her boys, [...]
