Custom Owls {handmade wares}

I've been busy with custom orders recently and I love it! Here's some custom owls I finished up this weekend.






I'm going to the big city {Wilmington, ha!} to see my little sis from Chi Omega today and one of these is for her! I haven't seen her in 3 years because she lives on the West Coast and I'm here on the East Coast. So excited about our mini-reunion!


Happy Monday y'all!

pillows ...for my house! woot -woot! {handmade wares}

I actually took the time to make pillows for my own house this weekend! What a concept, right? Y'all know how it is, we just stay so busy that our own houses get neglected.

This are in my dining room. Love the color combo:)

These are in one of the guest rooms. The walls are yellow and the bedding is green, turq, and yellow. The pillows will be for the bed of course, but it is not made today. oops.

These are in the other guest room. We've got two twin beds in here and the colors are grey, white, and yellow. I decided to add a pop of pink - love it!

And lastly my favorites! In my living room:) The whale on the big pillow actually started as an Etsy listing, but I love it so much that it found its home in my Mitchell Gold chair!

Which is your favorite?

Puff Flower Pillow {handmade wares}

Happy Monday Y'all! We had a great relaxing weekend here even though the weather was terrible! We got teased with 2 weeks of gorgeous 70+ degree temps only to be knocked by down again with rain and clouds. It kept the hubs & I productive though! I've got lots of great stuff in store, we've got a clean garage, and we had delicious meals Saturday and Sunday {steak burritos & spaghetti!}

Today I'm sharing one of my favorite pillows with you - the Puff Flower Pillow. This one is pink, navy, and yellow {one of my favorite color combos!}

The puff is made by cutting a circle {rather large, I use my biscuit bowl as a guide} and hand stitching around the edge to gather the ends into the center. This one is finished off with a vintage square yellow button.

Love the detail! I use envelope closures on all my pillows because I like that they are easy to switch out with the seasons.

handmade baby gifts {handmade wares}

One of my hubby's friends recently had a little girl so I whipped up some gifts for her. Everyone loves my name signs so I created one for little Sunny -


Her mom decorated her nursery will owls, so it was an easy choice! I like to do a fabric background with paper cut-outs and mod-podge finish. Of course for the little girls, I have to add a little glitter!

I also covered a shoe box in this gorgeous yellow & pink fabric and filled it with onesies since I've heard you can never have too many! The shoe box needed a little personalization, so I added the baby's initials to the top in buttons. I love the way it turned out!


I have many more baby gifts to make this year! It is so much fun:) What do y'all like to give for baby showers/new baby gifts??!?
