Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Personalized Plant Pots

Monday, April 4th, 2016

Happy Monday!

We hope you all had a fantastic weekend, we really felt spring for the first time this year and are excited for all the season has to offer.

We shared this Mother’s Day gift idea on Lil Luna a few years ago, but still think it’s pretty fab if you’re looking for a homemade gift idea for your mum, (or anyone really) be sure to keep it in mind!

We just love the spring feel, and homemade touch!

You Will Need:

Terra-cotta Plant Pot

Puff Paint


How To:

Simply free-hand a design (like the dots below), or sketch a design with a pencil and go over it with the paint (like the monogram above).

Just make sure you have fun, and don’t think too hard about the process. Simple is almost always best.

Once your design is finished, just let it set for about four hours, and then you’re ready to add the plants.

It was fun to decorate a few different sized pots, as they look great grouped together. Maybe having each child decorate one and create a whole garden would be sweet.

Adding a little ‘homemade’ says “I love you” more than anything.

Do you agree?

The Sweetest Easter Gifts for your little lady

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

While browsing Hape toys the other day (they are some of our very favorites) we were inspired by their fun pop of pastel colors and decided we needed to do a gift round up just in case you guys were looking to spoil your little one this spring.

A day on the Farm book (my girlies very favorite right now, thanks to Bri!). | 5. Bunnie Pull-A-Long toy (eeekk, just too cute). | 6. Floral Arrangement Playset.

We’re dying over these beautiful colors and love that our little ones are finally saying “yay-ow” (yellow), and “ink” (pink) while at play. Too cute all around!

We are planning to fill ours with festive marshmallows and a few favorite chocolaty treats, but these would be perfect for any gift or favor this time of year.

We added a white carnation for a little extra and paired it with a pastel napkin for a crazy easy Easter place setting.

Worth the Spurge: Bunnies by the Bay Dream Coats

Thursday, December 31st, 2015

Even though Christmas season is almost officially over, we’d like to share one of our favorite gifts ever!

When I was pregnant with the girlies, we had a hard time not buying everything in sight, but when my mum came across these dream coats we fell in LOVE!

“Once within this dreamy coat, Danced a dainty lass. Remembering all the glad dreams, To her daughter, the coat will pass.”

Sure the soft coat is truly dreamyyyy, and the bunny-eared hat is to die for. Oh and lets not forget the bunny hand muff! But what really got me was the embroidered message inside the coat:

“Once within this dreamy coat, Danced a dainty lass. Remembering all the glad dreams, To her daughter, the coat will pass.”

It may of been the pregnancy hormones, but I teared up!!!

My ladies wore theirs all last winter and was pleasantly surprised when we pulled them out this fall that they still fit! (all but the hat).

Now they are more aware of how soft and cuddly these coats are, and I often find them with their faces snuggled into their arms.

I can’t wait to enjoy these coats for just a few more months, but look forward to packing them back in their keepsake boxes ready one day for their little ones.

If your looking for a special gift, this one is a winner and we had to share Click HERE, to see!
