One of my favorite blog posts!

If you've got a five year old in the house (or even younger), this post just might resonate with you. Alice at Finslippy is a great writer and seems to be a great mom, as well. I think my little guy and Henry would get along swell! They both seem to enjoy Lego and all things Star Wars (and probably Indiana Jones.) I read this when my son was four in anticipation of great things to come. This is definitely a laugh out loud read. Enjoy the post and your precious darling child.

I can personalize the cover and add my own recipes or those that I have earmarked at I'll let you know when I create my own!

Paper Houses

How cute are these printable paper houses/store fronts? I found this on Design Freebies and I can't wait to make these with my friend Lynn Dee's girls! I love hanging out with kids; you get to do all kinds of fun things we didn't do as kids.

Wall Art

Painted Pieced Woodwork | Pottery Barn

Okay, here is something that I have been keeping my eye on for the last couple of weeks. I think this wall art would look great in the space between my living room and informal dining area. It perfectly complements the new kitchen tile work my husband was so kind to put up. Now, if I could just get past that price point...
