Happy spring Friday!
I actually mowed my lawn for the first time yesterday! While I’m not super stoked that the duty is officially a weekly thing again, I was excited with the anticipation of warmer temps and more sunny days! So, I’ll take it.
I have been bike riding daily which has been amazing! However my DIY last week was continuing to work on the guest room project, (I share early project peeks on Instagram Stories HERE if you care to follow along) AND collecting a new curbside found toy for the room I’ll be making over next week! And this is why my projects take forever. I keep adding stuff… can you relate?

How to grain sack your own pillows
I also did a DIY, sharing my secrets on how I achieve an authentic grain sack look with easy found supplies.
I personally am smitten with this ‘look’. It’s got a timeless vintage-feel and I’m loving how I can finally customize my own grain sacks with my stuff! (neutrals all the way please).
And I must say, everything lately is looking ‘spring’, including these lovely highlights from last week’s party…
