Happy 7th Birthday!

This wild, crazy, energetic, smart, silly, passionate little boy turns 7 today! He will forever be my baby. The youngest of three boys, he makes me complete as a mom. I can't imagine one day of life without him. He makes me melt, drives me crazy and keeps me laughing. He loves fishing, playing with his cousins, baseball, helping his Grandpop on the farm, watching fishing shows, searching for critters...frogs, crabs, worms, eating chicken salad sandwiches, cotton candy ice cream from Sundaes. He loves life and wakes up every day ready to "do something". He doesn't sit still for long. He goes 'til he drops. Not a moment is wasted in his day.

I love this kid so much and I'm so happy to be celebrating 7 years of Chase.

Happy birthday kiddo!!!!!!!! We love you.

Crushes and Inspiration

Hi friends. Hope everyone is well and enjoying the summer. It's been sooo hot here in New Jersey! We had a huge rain storm this morning so hopefully we will cool off a bit. 

I haven't done an inspirational post in a while so I thought I would take some time today and do one for you! Hope this inspires you to create, enjoy, cook, relax, decorate...a spark to get the creative juices flowing.

I am crushing on this shawl. The colors, the construction, love it all.

I've been thinking about this shawl since I saw it in person at Vogue Live NYC on Kate in the Green Mountain Spinnery booth. It's the Love & Darkness shawl. I am really enjoying knitting the Sylvia McFadden sweater, Lovable and this is a similar looking lace. I'm thinking it could be my second Rhinebeck knit.

And then there's this shawl....SO PRETTY! Boho Style Mosaic Shawl
Knitted in worsted wool, this would be so cozy on a cold night. It also reminds me of couches we had as a kid. They were in the basement and so uncomfortable but I loved them!

Some cute little hats would be fun to knit up for the farm store holiday shopping.
I like these.

I'm liking these pretty embroidered pillowcases. Would be fun to make my own.

These look yummy and healthy and an easy weeknight meal.

Seashell with Sharpies: Purple Debbie, this made me think of you.

On that same note...cute painted rocks. Easy and free craft. These would make cute little paperweights or decorations.

Embroidered Map artwork as part of your trip memories! Cute idea.

Hope some of these inspired you to create something :)

Have a great weekend!
