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

DIY Felted Baby Mobile

03.03.2016 by Emily |

We didn’t realize how much babies love mobiles until the girls arrived.
Now we know better!
We are getting all ready for Em’s baby boy and made our own version to hang above his changing table.

To make this mobile we used 30 felted balls, the inner part of a 12″ embroidery hoop (HERE) and basic white string. We bought the felt balls locally, but THIS Etsy store has a great selection at a great price.

We strung each ball with a needle and thread and tied each strand to the hoop.

This took about 15 minutes and we know baby boy will love staring up at it.

Wouldn’t this make the cutest present to give at a baby shower?

Gluten-Free Raspberry Crumb Bars

02.26.2016 by sarah and emily |

We miss our jammy traditional English desserts so we whipped up a new concoction with ingredients we always have in the pantry.

INGREDIENTS

2 c gluten free flour (we used Pamela’s HERE)
3/4 c gluten free oats
1/2 c butter
1/2 c brown sugar
1 egg1/2 c favorite jam
1.5 tsp dried rosemary

DIRECTIONS

Stir together softened butter, brown sugar, flour, rosemary, oats and egg until mixture looks like crumbs. The amount of flour can change based on which gluten free flour you’re using. If mixture is too sticky and won’t crumb, just add a tbsp of flour at a time until it will.

Use half of the mixture to press into a greased baking dish (we used a 13×9) and cook at 350 for about 15 minutes until golden brown.

Spread jam over cooked base and top with remaining crumb mixture and cook for 15-20 mins until golden brown again.

Refrigerate for 2 hours to set before slicing and serving.
