Carey, Lish and I each made a different version of a table runner and tray set for our homes thanks to Meijer. Wanna see all three and how we did them? C’mon over to HandmadeDetroit.com!
Della is ten months old now, and having a ball. She’s walking everywhere she can with a little help from her push cart, the furniture, or anyone that will hold her hands. She now says mama and dada, and loves playing with Roy, no matter what he is doing. They have a lot of fun playing with her gum ball machine and his kitchen & play food, and Roy loves making her picnics of felt sandwiches and birthday cake.
Lots and lots of the Olympics. I’m so sad they are over and now we have to wait another 4 years! Weren’t Meryl Davis and Charlie White incredible? The opening and closing ceremonies were gorgeous too – I was in awe!
Potty Train in a Weekend. Not very exciting, but it is because I’ll hopefully be changing half the diapers I used to very soon!
And other stuff I’ve been loving lately:
We finally started an email list for the Reware Shop! If you want to be emailed of new sales and new products on the site, sign up right on the side bar over there —————————————————————->
Jonathan Adler collaboration with TOMS. I just can’t decide, I need them all!
My poor 7 inch case. After nearly 20 years of being in my possession, it was exceptionally trashed. Probably because for the past two years we’ve used it as a doorstop in our bedroom.
But I still loved it. I knew I could save it. It might be some major surgery, but it could be done.
First came the duct tape to the inside of the box. Really, sometimes repairs just need lots of duct tape.
I get asked a lot how much I buy for myself while I shop for the website, and sometimes I confess…it’s a lot. I thought it’d be fun to show off some of the finds we save for ourselves in a new blog post! Here we go with the first “What We Kept”…
A whole bunch of new winter skirts, dresses, sweaters and sweatshirts in the shop this week! Get on over here and check them out!
Despite our travel difficulties and our getting majorly sick, we had a really nice first couple of days of our vacation in South Carolina visiting our dear friends. We ran, shopped, explored, ate some awesome BBQ and duck fat fries, skateboarded, celebrated and relaxed in the sunshine.
This past month was a very busy one for Della! She got her first two teeth, began crawling, said her first word – Mama, and is eating table food with the family now. She loves walking with some hand-holding help, pulling mountains of books out of our bookshelf, and dancing in her high chair while she eats. She is just incredibly happy right now, despite being sick quite a lot the past few weeks.
