DIY--Recycled Materials Beach Bag

With a week long trip to the beach just around the corner, I've been looking for some ideas on making a cute beach bag. I can never really find what I like (at the right price) so I've really been contemplating  making my own. While I'm not a good sewer, I saw this really cute idea and pattern that I thought I may actually be able to pull off. I wanted to share it with you in case you too, are in need of a super cute, custom beach bag. The pattern and instructions can be found here, courtesy of Found In The Ali Blog. Enjoy!

Color Inspiration--Fresh Squeezed ORANGE

As with each new season, the arrival of Summer gives us all the chance to add something new to our interiors. I really like the use of bold color and with ORANGE being my favorite, I just had to share this awesome room inspiration.

Some people would be nervous about using orange in a room, but remember that you don't have to paint the walls orange (although I did in my dining room). Why not use it as a quick pick-me-up for your room by introducing it in throw pillows or painted side tables, such as in this room. How refreshing is this room? Just as refreshing as a glass of orange juice. Go, decorate and be BOLD!

Meet Edwin

The boys, especially Jackson, have been asking begging for a kitty for a very long time. So long, that the name of the kitty comes from a cartoon they really never watch anymore (unlike a little over a year ago when that's the ONLY cartoon they would sit still for). So, we're trying out this kitty--meet Edwin. We adopted him from a friend and are trying him out for a week. If they boys don't keep up their end of the deal, he goes back. He's on "kitty loan", I told them. Wish us (and our lab) luck!
