A sweet little Easter arrangement – using mini daffodils and vintage millinery flowers placed in a vintage egg cup. One at each place setting would be so sweet for Easter.

This paper mobile is a simple project for the nursery – cut pretty-colored card stock into strips (about 1 x 5 inches or so), and run them through a sewing machine. Bend a piece of wire into an inverted ‘v’ (curl the ends of the wire for a more finished look), attach the paper strips, and hang from the ceiling. This was perfect over our changing table – the paper spins and twirls in the air, giving baby something to stare at while you get the job done!
We moved into our house 2 years ago, and I’ve hated the bedroom light the minute I saw it. Since replacing the entire fixture is not in the budget right now, I wanted to see if I could cover it with a paper shade. It was very simple to do – I trimmed a few inches off the top of the paper shade(using scissors on the paper and wire cutters on the wire), then staple-gunned it to the ceiling – and now I don’t know why it took me two years to do it!
My new go-to baby shower gift – a stack of our favorite books. Some are classic (Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown), some are cute (Red Hat, Green Hat by Sandra Boynton), and some are special because they’re local (I Live in Brooklyn by Mari Takabayashi).
What could be better to receive than baby’s first books tied up with pretty ribbon?
Remember that black and white poster I’d made for $4.00? Well, recently we celebrated my in-laws’ birthdays. For the party, I blew up an old photo (love those glasses, Carole!), and spelled out HAPPY BIRTHDAY in pre-made letters from Staples. A few bits of confetti and some party hats glued on completed the look. I’d like to think all the guests had a good chuckle as they walked in the front door.
Making this was so easy and fun, I fully intend on making one for every birthday and special occasion.
