Hey!! It's time for another weekend wrap-up ( after not having a post in forever ).
This past weekend was busy as usual but it's always a blessing to do things you love!
Saturday I had the chance to participate in an Easter boutique with friends & it was so fun! The kids took pictures with the Easter bunny ( Dex did not cry, what! ) and we had lots of shoppers & champagne!
I also had the chance to shop with some cool vendors, like Guy Blanco. Check his site out and you'll find some really cute things like this skull ring! Perfect for stacking. I love mine.
I wanted to let you know that our 'BE GOLD' print is on sale over at PS- I ADORE YOU for a special price! You'll have to act fast though , there are only 3 days left to get one at the special price. Click the link below ...
So, we finally started a gallery wall in Declan's room. I know, 14 months after he was born but better late than never! He had a blank wall opposite his crib and I had to make some time to at least start a project.
This is how the wall looked before:
Very bare. I placed a couple of canvas chalkboards I used for his first birthday to add something but as you can see it looks totally wonky. The wall is a bit too long for a only a couple of things so I set out to make a gallery wall.
Here is how the space looks now. I want to add a couple of more items, but I like the way it's turning out.
Here is another angle including his rocking chair ( totally came in handy when Dex was itty bitty)
I am always on the search for trendy, out of the box & new items. I enjoy purchasing things from small shops or from moms who are starting out with a business. Instagram & Etsy have really lead me to some pretty cool shops and I wanted to share a few of new favorites.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may know about my love of bandana bibs for Declan. Lately he's been growing out of his infant bibs, so I have been on the lookout for toddler sizes. I came across this shop on Etsy: Half Pint - How adorable are these!
This bracelet from the Etsy shop Capucinne isdainty, trendy & goes with everything!
These Business Cards from Swell and Grand are too cute! I think I will be purchasing them soon!
And last but certainly not least, are these adorable post cards from Pixels and Playbooks. I actually purchased these a while back and in my next post I'll show you how I used them.
COOKING My hubby does all the cooking for dinner, I mainly Pin everything I like haha! I do cook lots of baby food though SIPPING Lots of Coffee & Diet Coke.
