leaf rubbings


It seems that we are always wracking our brains for clever things to entertain our kids. The best activities are, of course, the ones that are literally right under our noses: One day after school my daughter and I went for a walk in the park and very instinctively started collecting leaves. When we got home I showed her how to make leaf rubbings, which I had all but forgotten about with my boys. It kept her busy for about an hour!


tassel pillowcases


The house we rented for our vacation was modern and beautiful. The bedrooms were all made up with white linens but often had one small flourish that made them very special. These tassel pillowcases were my favorite. Maybe one day I will try to make my own using this how to for making tassels.
