via PipiPhotography - pretty pretty print!

I've decided that daffodils are the happiest flower.  I used to think it was sunflowers - with their big fancy faces and brilliantly outstretched petals.  Yet - after a winter of gray skies and snow covered landscapes, once these little yellow daffodils started showing their brilliance my heart started soaring.  SPRING IS SO CLOSE!  Even though the grass hasn't sprouted yet, and the trees are still cold and brown, the daffodils have fought their way through the soil to bring some sunshine to my walk to work. 

Oh I do love them. 

Happy Easter - hope you have a bouquet of these somewhere in your house today.

raw art letter press

There is still a blank wall in the baby's room.  It's killing me. 

I'm currently fantasizing about the possibility of one of these prints  by Raw Art Letter Press.  They are so simple and divine.  Of course, if I got one for Clara's room, it would have to be yellow.  It would just have to be.

Aren't these delightful? There is something about them that makes me smile.

Bless you Jo for guiding me towards the culinary genius who figured out how to create homemade Girl Scout Samoas at Siriously Delicious.  Not that I will have time/patience to attempt these for's just blissful to know that the possibility is there.

ugly chair = love

So.  I had an experience in one of those hideous gliding baby chairs at the breast-feeding center of our local mall (it's a gorgeous space for mothers who want to nurse their little ones...seriously...gorgeous space!).  I have hated the look of those chairs from the get-go and refused to entertain the thought of buying one for our home.  (please don't be offended if you have one of these in your home!)  I wanted to buy a pretty gliding chair...with slick lines...something we could use as real furniture once our baby wasn't a baby any more. 

But...those ugly gliders are sooo comfortable.  And nursing in it was a dream.  We couldn't come close to purchasing my dream gliders (here or here).  The ugly glider is somewhat of a steal in comparison. 

I can't wait to get my amazingly comfy ugly chair!
