whimsy wednesday {kushkush}

A while back I blogged about this:
These adorable little plush foxes....well sweet Emily of Kush Kush saw the post, then proceeded to read a bit more about us and found out we were adopting and wrote to see if she could sent Mr. Mini Fox to Ivey!!! Are you kidding me? Could that be any sweeter? I am constantly amazed at the love and support we are getting for our little Ivey. I feel so lucky! Emily I thank you for your lovely gift - Ivey will CHERISH it :)
Here are a few more things from her shop - I might need this little plush fox - he is furry on the back - EEEK! LOVE!

Inspiration Workshop {familyroom}

Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!

This weeks Gussy Sews prompt was family rooms. Luckily our house had just been cleaned for our homestudy so I took a few photos of our family room. It is finally getting to be just how I like it, found furniture I love, in colors I adore - and the best part is my sweet little family loves it!

here is a good view of the whole space - this is a fill in rug I got for cheap at target since Olive had chewed holes in our last one. So I am still on the hunt for the perfect "dog friendly" rug for this space.
probably my favorite piece in the room - our lamp. We found this at a vintage shop in Memphis and fell in love immediately.
this chair was an awesome find at a local resale shop here in Chattanooga. And the beautiful afghan was made by my grandmother. I cherish it.....

Whimsy Wednesday {marisolspoon}



I had always seen Marisol Spoon online and was so excited to get to see them in person at last weeks Indie Craft Parade. I first just introduced myself and wanted to tell them how much I loved their work, then I looked to my right and saw something that brought tears to my eyes - the above piece. A beautiful girl who reminds me of what I think Ivey will look like.....with a butterfly on her shoulder (which represents my dear friend I lost last year Laura). I had to have it. The piece also was framed with a gorgeous hand carved woodland frame with a bunny, fox, owl and deer. It was meant to be.
Here is the piece framed - I can't capture how gorgeous the frame is. But I do know how thankful I am for this piece.....and for meeting new friends Lauren & Jason
