Our House

While it is not finished it has come a long way! Wanted to share the excitement with you. John has been painting our house (when it is not raining) and I am SO excited about the new colors!

Here is the before:
And here is the after:

There is still stuff to do but I am so happy with the results of the outside transformation!

I hope to post pictures of the inside in the coming weeks as I continue my spring cleaning and prep for the kids to be home with me all summer!

Have something exciting to share about your house? Please share it with me...I love looking at houses and decorations. Post a link to your post on "Our House" so we can see what you are up to!

It's her birthday! Happy Happy Birthday to you mom! I know it won't be a fun day because you are having a colonoscopy but I pray that it is the beginning of a fun year for you. I love you and am so thankful to have you in my life. You are a beautiful, strong, smart, loving woman and I am blessed to call you mom!

Jorja's first Pillowcase dress

Well it is really a first for both of us. It was my first pillowcase dress to make and her first pillowcase dress to wear! I have been wanting to make on of these for a while now. My dear friend Tamara shared the idea with me and I finally decided to sit down and give it a try! It was pretty easy. And I have lots of ideas how to improve the next one! These pillowcase dressed are really cute with antique pillowcases - so keep you eyes out for some unique old pillowcases that will transform into cute dresses for your little girl. Hope to have more of these to show - summer is almost here and it is the perfect time for a pillowcase dress!

The tutorial I used for the pillowcase dress can be found here
