right now.

 something just struck me.  the light was hitting the kitchen and windows just right.  filling the house with the beautiful early morning golden sun.  and i wanted to remember it all as it was.  no cleaning up first or making things just so...i wanted to remember everything the way it was right now.  
 our landing zone just inside the back door...featuring my anniversary gift and hoho in the background.
 the view from the kitchen. my new chairs make me smile.
 i love this spot.  this sunshine.  those curtains.
 the preferred method for watching TV.  in his snowpants.  aka "fireman suit".  that he has worn on top of his clothing for more days than i can count.  we haven't had snow for weeks.
 my station.  my pile of ironing in the corner.  my new sewing machine.  i never told you that i took back my other new one and upgraded again to the viking sapphire 835.  i just wasn't gelling with the other one.   
 my favorite photo collages of the boys that i do every year.  reminds me that a year goes by in a heartbeat.  way too fast.  i have a four year old and a nearly two year old.  crazy.

my minimal valentines day decor.  pompom fringe and vintage valentines. 

back to cleaning.  happy friday!

The snow pants rock, how cute! I love your little nook with all the coffee cups and sarcasm sign. That blue organizer is so cool, wherever did you find it? Love your purse too!

Funny and vibrant home, love it!

I stumbled upon your blog, and just love it! I noticed you mentioned that you do a collage of your boys every year. Have you posted a blog about this? If so, what is the link? I think that is an awesome idea! Thanks! Melanie

how do you like the Sapphire? I have been considering getting that machine. I do a lot of quilting with my machine now. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

No wonder you stopped and took pictures! Your kitchen looked so cheery and happy. I also love the shelves and the adorable arrangement of photos.

I know this sounds ridiculous...but here goes. I am in love with the blue organizer system you have on top of your counter for your back door drop area. My island and I fight often because it is often a landing zone for EVERYTHING and looks like a mess everyday of the week...can I be nosey and ask if you made that? I have been searching on etsy for a cool vintage junky piece and had no luck!

Thanks for any help!
