want some dolls with your coffee?

Thumbnail image for want some dolls with your coffee?

Coffee tables can be anything from boring, too big, too small, painful corners, great storage, running all the way to unusual. But for families, coffee tables become even more: game time, train table, Lego central, movie night meals, etc. etc. But I’d never considered using one as a dollhouse before. Designed by Ulyanov Architects, this beauty of […]

let’s all get out our animal masks

Thumbnail image for let’s all get out our animal masks

They may not have any eye holes, or ribbon ties, or anything else that would make them actually wearable. But Abigail Brown’s paper mache masks are still some of my favorite masks ever. They’re just so well-formed in a totally not-quite-real way. And you can own your own to hang on every wall in your house. Personally, if I […]

rest your weary head right here

Keeping Birdie from melting down is feeling like a full-time job this summer. Between the lack of routine, warm weather, and random summer indulgences (like popsicles and a trip to the fair), she’s begun to think every day is a big fat adventure waiting to happen. Throw in the fact that she could probably still […]

go ahead, let them color on your walls

Thumbnail image for go ahead, let them color on your walls

The first time I saw coloring page wallpaper, I nearly fell out of my chair. Forget the kids’ room, I wanted the chance to color my own masterpiece anywhere in my home. I still feel that way – especially with some of the floral options from Spoonflower. Spoonflower is known for it’s custom prints of […]

DIY: crystal gem watercolor paintings for kids

Thumbnail image for DIY: crystal gem watercolor paintings for kids

Little girls – and big girls too – love shiny sparkly things. My daughter is no exception. If it sparkles and glistens in the sun, she’s ready to hoard it! In fact, she already has 3 different (small) treasure chests, and would happily gather several more to hold her collections of crystals, jewels, and rocks. […]

I love this craft!! OMG…we have been making these flags for days. This is one of those crafts that will stay out on the table for a long time because it’s so enjoyable and simple, and it sparks up so many interesting, worldly conversations. We’ve talked about everything from the way a flag came to […]

This post is made possible with the generous support of vine.com. Thanks Vine! I am itching for summer. Itching for it in a way that’s hard to describe unless you’ve been through an endless 7 month long winter. It’s been a cold cold spring, and everything around here is just now, just barely, blossoming. So […]

wrapping up your walls

We’re planning to move. I say “planning” because there are one too many projects left on this house to actually say that we “are” moving. There are lots of little air quotes all over the place. But I do a lot of house hunting, and I have a dream list of things I want in […]

what shall we play today?

That’s what Collette Bream asks across the top of her Etsy shop, and it sums things up perfectly. I know around this house that question is asked many. many. many. times during the day. Her shop doesn’t give any kind of straightforward answer either. Instead, it feels like I’ve stepped into a perfectly curated little […]
