Ah, remodeling.

comments: 187















Oh, it's loud. And messy. It will be worth it, I know. But right now the house is a total mess. Because everything that was in the guest room is now in the other rooms. And the other rooms were full (at least, they were as full as I like them to be). Now they're fuller. One more week and it will be done. It's looking good. I know we'll be happy. But I won't deny that I will be THRILLED when it's finished, in part just because it's finished!

I baked muffins and then froze a bunch of them for my breakfasts. It's amazing that the thawed muffins taste pretty much every bit as good as they did the first day. These are blueberry streusel muffins. They are delicious. Yum. Saved me this week, seriously. They and my little milk frother thing, for tea lattes. I've been quite happily fed.

So many bunnerses! I love them. Possibly more than anything I've ever made. Yes, we will be doing kits! Almost everything is ordered and on its way. I'm hoping the kits will be finished a couple of weeks before Easter, but Easter falls on March 31 this year. That's early. So I can't promise, but we'll definitely try. The bunners above is not wearing Liberty, but the kits will have Liberty. We're thinking you'll have ten different dress fabrics to choose from! Because I couldn't possibly have picked just one. You know how bunnerses multiply. (And yes, there will be yarn included for the capelet, and the felt and pattern for boots, etc.) I'll keep you posted, and thank you so much for your enthusiasm! That made me very, very happy. Thank you.

I love all my little girls, furry and non-furry, so.


Love, love, love the bunnies. And your little Amelia is pretty precious. I am loving the smiles you're showing us these days. So sweet.

The shoes on the bunsers are also what is so cute about them - love those. Will directions be included in the kit for them as well?
Your pictures always evoke warmth, I love seeing glimpses into your world!

The bunners are so boho chic! Liberty print dresses and boots like Doc Martens! Will there be a little cardi pattern too? Oh no---I feel another obsession coming on!

Amelia just gets cuter by the day! Can't wait to see the new remodel! :)

That baby is beautiful. And That Hair!

Amelia's hair is the best!

Every time I see one of those bunnies I become more and more convinced that I am going to have to order some! Because they are amazing.

In my dreams we can all hang out with our nap hair and drink tea and play ukulele songs for each other. xoxo

A beautiful happy family. How lovely you all found each other. Your photos always make me smile. Good things happen to good people. Enjoy your darling girls and your lovely man.

Baby, bunners, muffins, Clover, and the ukulele?
Sweet delights... this is one delightful treasure post.
Happy Weekending, and thanks for loveliness.

Oh look at Amelia sitting there like a big girl! So sweet! She is going to love her room when she gets in there! I can hardly wait to see what you do with it. Did you decide on the wallpaper? It'll look cute I'm sure.

Oh, thank you thank you for the bunnies! I can't wait. Amelia is just precious, I'm so so happy for you all. Clover Meadow is just the best big sis.

The bunnies are ever so sweet in their Liberty frocks! I must ask about the Bee, she seems to be absent lately, hope she is fine!

What brand/description is your milk frothier?

So excited for a bunny kit!! Amelia had cute, crazy hair just like my little sis did. Love it! I think she looks like Andy, hair not included.:)

As always, just adorable pictures of Amelia. I love the one of her being serenaded by Andy. Can't wait for the bunny kits, they are so sweet. Your muffins sound yummy. I usually don't have any left over to freeze! Happy Weekend - maybe a respite from the building noise?

That beautiful smile! And, I can't believe Amelia is already sitting up. Wow, time flies. Thanks for pictures of the always darling Clover Meadow.

Amelia is the sweetest, happiest baby!! Love your bunnies, too! I hope you make a kit of them!

Just finished the Ollalieberry Ice Cream Quilt. I've been making quilts for years but NEVER have I followed a tutorial and MAN does this one look better than the last ones. I did a crib size and am looking forward to doing a "Blueberry" one for boys. ; )
I am SO thankful for you. You make things easy, fun and filled with warmth.
Good luck with the rest of the remodel and the bunners.
Thank you for everything and please never stop blogging and making things.

The pictures of Baby Amelia just make me so, so happy! They also make me feel a little less anxious about the little one that I will have in my own lap here in just a few short weeks.

She seems like the most laid back baby...I just want to cuddle her little cheeks! :)
