I'm working on a pillow to give my husband for Valentines Day (which he's already seen me working on). It has sort of become a humorous gift tradition for me to give him a pillow each V-day. Two years ago I gave him a pillow that said "Valentine" in felt letters. I loved it. He thought it was nice but saw through it...he knew it was really was a gift for myself (after all it was pink and not really something he would do much with). We got a good laugh out of it this year and now I think I'll make it a "gag" gift tradition. (Don't worry, I have something else up my sleeve for him).
there's always room in the world for one more softie right? i couldn't resist. i might only have boys but I have always wanted to make dolls. I have lots of little nieces however that are going to love their v-day treat from auntie mer.
Little A has his third birthday coming up in March and I have my eye on this Pirate Supply Kit, by Miss Natalie. So cute.and how about this adorable Growth Chart kit? My boys are growing like weeds. What a great way to keep up.
For a glorious brief week it was cold enough here in Southern California to cuddle up in a cozy quilt. I love quilts and I've just started to get my feet wet in the making of them. My little A is turning 3 this year and I want to make him a quilt that will fit a twin bed. Friend and fabulous painter/photographer, Jordan Daines, made the most darling little baby quilt. I love the pattern she came up with. I'm also head over heals for my friend Katie's simple modern quilt she made in only 24hrs! wow. These others are ones I've found while perusing the net and love them. I really want to make the zig zag one for myself.

I'm a sucker for attractive organization and am slightly obsessed with labels so when I saw these fantastic Matthew Mead creations in the latest Country Home I was more than smitten. So pretty. I would want to bake everyday if my pantry looked likes this. Download the labels for yourself here.
