This morning I saw some paintings by Leah Giberson on Apartment Therapy. I was totally blown away. You can feel the heat in them. The colors are so crisp. They are photo realistic but the paint has texture. I love them! Seeing work like this makes me want to pick up the brush again.

She has an Etsy shop where you can pick up limited edition prints. She also has a blog

Strollin, strollin, strollin

Kids love to imitate and I basically guarantee that there will come a time when your child will want to push a stroller. Hazel’s stroller goes out for walks with us, it folds and easily fits under our stroller when she gets tired and needs to ride. It gets run up and down the hallway and acts as an impromptu high chair for dolls & animals. Even though we spent under $10 on it, it seems to never fall apart. There are toy strollers on the market that fit every style and budget from vintage prams to ultra modern. Here are just a few.

Helping the Gulf Coast

Watching what's happening on the Gulf is just sickening. I didn't know what we could do about it and then I saw Etsy's Help the Gulf Coast shop and knew we should add one of our items. Check out our Heron. 50% of proceeds will go to Oxfam America and 50% to the National Audubon Society. Here's your chance to help and to get some great work.

Featured on Ohdeedoh

Yesterday we were lucky enough to have our backyard featured on Ohdeedoh. It was hard to choose photos of our backyard that really highlighted it but I think the post came out great.
