Easter Festivities

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Dane and I got to spend a lot of time with family over the weekend. We are so blessed to have such an incredible family, and there is nothing we like more than spending the holidays with them!


Like most of our holidays, Easter was packed with all sorts of activities. We kicked off the celebration on Friday with some Easter egg dying fun at Grammy's. Saturday I got to relax a little, and spend the whole day with my adorable little nephew. After his momma picked him up, I went out to the farm to color paint eggs with my sister. (Painting eggs sounds like a great idea, but it is very time consuming!)

Sunday we enjoyed a delicious breakfast, and a wonderful service with our church family. After that, we went from one family gathering to the next. Food. Egg hunts. More food. I was pretty exhausted by the end of the day, but that's okay.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

I have slowly (I mean really slowly) been trying to add some wall d├ęcor to the front porch. Don't ask me why it is taking so long!

Anyway, I recently purchased a this adorable vinyl lettering for my front door. How cute is that?! However, when I had to pick out a color, I decided that I liked white the best. Believe me, Dane got a chuckle when I told him I bought white vinyl for our white door! I was really just planning on painting the door some pretty color, which also made him laugh! That is when I decided that I would put it on the wall in the front porch.

It had crossed my mind briefly when I was picking out the color of the lettering, but I really thought it would look cute on the door. Now that it is up, I think I should just pretend that it was planned for the porch all along...it looks amazing. The white vinyl matches the trim perfectly, and looks great against the jade wall.

I am planning on adding a few other things to this wall. I think that a grouping of small items will look nice. I have my eyes on this key hook from Target (and everything else in the Young House Love collection), and I thought that a white frame would look great with it.

In other news, we have started some bathroom renovation projects! Dane came in the house the other day with a sawzall and said, "I am going to cut a whole in the bathroom wall." I was pretty darn excited!

I love buying fabric. It is kind of becoming a problem...I have a pretty large stock pile of fabric that I "had to have", and I haven't found a use for it yet. However, that hasn't stopped me from looking for more fun fabrics to buy for future projects.
I recently found Spoonflower, a website that has tons of great fabric...you can even design your own! I have been trying to dream up some projects for some of my favorite fabrics. Anyone need a baby blanket covered in whales?!

Here are a few of the fabrics that I am smitten with!

Are you in love yet?!

There are just so many options! If you come over to my house and find it full of colorful throw pillows, don't be surprised!

You can find a couple of my sewing projects here, here, and here.

Gosh...I haven't written a post in FOREVER! The weather has been so nice, and I have been busy running, taking pictures, cleaning, and planting watering tulips. (It absolutely made my day to see these blooms!) Plus, Dane and I have been working on some fun projects that I plan to share very soon!

Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather!
