Favorite Notions

I love pretty containers. Lately, my new obsession is needle books & cases. Here some tasty ones I found this week!
These are made by jnoriginals. Way cute!

This is something different, this is a wonderful little wooden needle case. These are made by thesmallobject .Or maybe you would like something more dainty and sophisticated. Like this lovely needle book that showcases intricate ribbon embroidery on the front.I love this sweet book made by TangleWitDesigns.

I also found these! Aren't they yummy?

These are designed by PaperFish.

Lastly, I adore this pretty pin book! This is made by LookHappy as part of a 'Cases with Faces' series!

Fairies Abound

Phoebe turned 4 this week and I threw a Fairie Hallow party for her. We invited 3 friends to come frolic and play. There was lots of tulle, glitter, fresh flowers, fairie houses and fun food everywhere.
We transformed our home with LOTS of lights, tulle and flowers. Overall, it had a very magical feel to it and the little girls loved it!

I created 3 Fairie Homes and they were darling. I used twinkle lights and battery operated tea lights to make them glow. Our garden cherub above is holding the gummy worms for the little fairies to snack on.

Looking ahead to Christmas....

I recently came across a great tutorial from Gingerbread Snowflake, on an idea for Advent. Every year, I always have grand plans for that part of the holiday season, but not nearly the amount of time I would like to spend on it. This year, I found some adorable pinata inspired ornaments that would be perfect for my kids during the holidays. I am going to get my supplies and make these later this week, when it is 109 degrees outside.

Summer sewing....

I recently came across a great, easy tutorial from Anna Maria Horner. I used it to make an adorable library tote for the kids summer reading selections. She used some of her fabulous dish towels, I used 2 fat quarters of fabric I brought back from my Sis Boom workshop. My girls LOVE it and and have all asked for bags for various summer activities.

Hannah and Isabel could actually make theirs themselves (with a little help from me).

Oh my goodness, I think I am in love!

I recently found these darling dolls on etsy! They are Matroyska rattles! The seller, Ollierose, is out of Australia and her stuff is completely yummy! Will need to order at least one, maybe two of these.
