gathered with my daughters...
simply the perfect shades of rich browns and earthy textures...
gently nodding a "hello" to the season fast approaching...
just a little hint of fall...
and I do believe I'm ready after this summer's heat!
tell me- are you?
Have a happy day!

One of my absolute favorites!- not just for their incredible comfort...
but mostly for their incredible mission!
"One for One"
With every pair you purchase,
TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need.
makes buying a new pair of shoes even more special...
( I LOVE these wedges- being a bit vertically challenged-
but I'm also dreaming of these too! )
what a wonderful (fun!) way to help make a precious child's
life a little more lovely...
indeed, a lovely little step in the right direction!
p.s.I'm linking to my sweet friend Heather's "life made lovely" Monday!

just a little something I created for the new house...
using flour-sack towels,
with a little stitching and embroidery too!
I simply cut my shapes *stars*,
stitched around the edges- leaving a little fabric on the outside to fray when washed,
and then embroidered the words...
which just happen to be the name of our new home-to-be!
I'm so excited to hang (and use!) them...
in the "Triple Star Farms" farmhouse!
Have a wonderful weekend!

"Mama cut out pictures of houses for years,
from Better Homes and Gardens magazine,
plans were drawn and concrete poured,
nail by nail and board by board,
Daddy gave life to Mama's dream."
lyrics by: Miranda Lambert from "House That Built Me"
Our hope for our children...
That this house becomes more than a memory for them...
that it will be a place where they can dream & play...
a place they can always "come home" ...
a place filled with tender love and care ...
"board by board".
Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

we fix things...
patch things ...
make things all-better-now...
whether it be a hole in
or a broken hearted little spirit...
we take those holes and patch them ...
with great attention to detail...
we help make things become all-better-now-
'cause that's what moms do!
Have a happy day!
