Handmade Trash

My father-in-law, Leon is a darling man. His grandfathering skills are top-rate and the boys just adore him. On each of the boys first birthdays, their grandpa makes them a handmade wood rocking horse. The horse is an exact replica of a rocking horse from his own childhood.

With four boys, we now have 4 rocking horses in our home. Each is labeled with their own name. You can guarantee these beauties will be passed down to another generation.

I found this handmade wood chest at Goodwill on $1.00 day. I dropped it off at Kelly's and her daughter Emily kindly offered to carry it in. Kelly will turn this trash to treasure for sure.

The handmade touches Kelly has put in baby girl’s room remind me of cotton candy and pink lollipops. I can't believe I finally get a pink room!

From refinished furniture (click here, here and here to see what I'm talking about) to handmade d├ęcor, the nursery is sure to impress. Her and her Mr. Right have been painting all weekend. Kelly’s certain we can finish before the baby comes, but by the way these contractions keep feeling, I’m not to sure about that (wishful thinking).

Together, they primed and painted the brick wall in no time. By the way, notice the plate of cookies on the dresser. Cooking is where I make up for my lack of craftiness. I make a wicked homemade oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookie and we munched on them all day.

Reef and Mayer loved having them over.

These little boys played a day-long game of hide-n-seek in the closet.

I couldn't believe how long they stayed in there. Mayer didn't like it when I suggested he come out.

Sometimes the suspense of hide-n-seek is enough to keep it fun.

I’ve been pulling out goodies from the baby shower and wanted to showcase some of the homemade goodies.

I can’t wait to enjoy these gifts with baby Eden. Thank you to my sweet friends. I’m scheduled to be induced next Monday. It’s almost time.
