I love decorating with old books and am always on the lookout for them...look at what I found at the public library the other day...free books!
I always am on the lookout for an interesting title and coloring. Perhaps something I can change out seasonally. But, what if they have a title I don't want to display?
I wish I had graphic design skills...but some days I can barely get Microsoft Word to work right...thankfully there are much more skilled people than me sharing what they know! Here's what I did in just a couple minutes! Think of the possibilities...stickers...tags...stationary... Go here to make your own! Just do a search for your name in the top right corner...even if they don't have your name (they didn't have Ella) I was still able to "suggest" a name.
The "wing walls" on our front steps. Just the right height to sit on! The porch is still waiting for the rest of its "pretties"...the posts, railings and lights!

I made a couple different cupcakes...funfetti cupcakes for my brother-in-law who also received his Masters the same weekend...gluten-free chocolate cupcakes for my brother...and lollipop flower cupcakes for the kids. I hit up the local "sweets" shop for my cupcake decorations. The "tray" is part of an old game that I picked up at a garage sale.
And Sophia was the perfect little lady...never touching that tempting treat in front of her.....
HA! Fooled you....
A little child sized hutch I picked up at a garage sale (for $7.50!) This will be transformed into a little kitchen/pantry for her new bedroom. Stocked with everything a kitchen needs...and hopefully lots of felt food!
If for some reason the above doesn't happen there's always this little dollhouse from Pottery Barn Kids!
