Retro Birdhouse

I've been thinking about creating a birdhouse pattern for a few days now and this morning I got right down to it! Complete with faux woodgrain and kitschy floral wallpaper, with birdhouse pattern I made intended for making aprons.

Anniversary in MKE

With our Anniversary falling on a Tuesday, we decided to make a special little trip last Sunday to MKE. We visited Johnny's ole neighborhood and hopped around a few places on Brady Street. We had a great time stopping at a few great places like The Hi Hat Lounge/The Garage & The Nomad
We had a few IPAs and walked a little around the city. We snacked on Reuben Rolls at Hooligans and headed to the historic and gorgeous Oriental Theater for our main attraction. We saw "Where To Invade Next" with an extremely over sized soda & popcorn. It was nearly impossible to capture the beauty of the theater with my camera, but the floor in the bathroom was so cute! We headed home in time to get the boys to bed and get ready for Monday. It was a great date and a memorable occasion. It felt so great to be in the city again.

Spring Blossom

I've caught a spring bug! Although we have a few more months of winter in Wisconsin, I'm ready for color again! The weather in the Midwest is similar to the weather in Scandinavian countries and I am finally understanding why colorful bright flowers are so popular in their design. 
I love the way this pattern turned out!
