{new loves}

i am so into leggings right now, so i love this little outfit from anthro...a cute sweater and a pair of leggings!
and here is an outfit that i would love for sadie from janie & jack...

remember my 5 pieces of scrapbook paper? i used them to make letters for the nursery...i got some mdf letters at hobby lobby for $10 and the paper i wanted. i painted the edges of the letters pale pink and then mod podged the sb paper to the letters, let them dry and cut the paper around the letters out. then i used a piece of sandpaper to sand off the edges where the extra paper was. i thought it turned out so pretty! (i learned that technique for doing letters in a donna downey scrapbook class that susanne and i took a few years ago)
i'm going to attach some ribbon to the back of each letter and hang it like a banner above her crib!

and look at all these clothes and shoes! sarah jones gave me a bunch of her little girl kate's clothes that she has already outgrown...some things haven't even been worn!

so i'm trying to organize everything by size and put it up in her closet and dresser...and this is an organizational idea i got from ali edwards' blog. she bought a kitchen storage shelf at target and put baskets in it to store her daughter's things, so i did the same thing for sadie. i got the silver shelf at target and the white baskets at ikea. i've put different things in each basket like, shoes, hats, socks and leggings, and headbands and bows. i think it will work out really well for her closet!

are you planning to watch dcc making the team which starts this saturday night on cmt? i LOVE this's so texas! check it out! and have a fantastic weekend!


  1. oh i love the letters and the paper you chose! so cute.
    i also love the shelving idea from ali~i want to do that too.
    i cannot believe all those clothes from kate! you know you'll have some cute outfits coming your way from her (maybe you'll eventually get that tiny louis v. from her!)
    also love that rug in sadie's room~where did you get that?

  2. Those ruched leggings are a gem! Love! Sadie's letter look adorable! And isn't it great to get wonderful clothing from another? When you have them put away, folded, and hung...I bet you look at them all so many times. Baby clothes are way too cute and fun! :)

  3. The letters turned out perfect! I love the papers you chose. Those leggings are adorable, too!
