welcome home.

My darling husband and I purchased our first house almost two years ago. It’s a 1940’s, New England Colonial-style house that came with creaky stairs, chipped paint and scratched hardwood floors – all of which we absolutely love! We have my been working diligently on making it our home and remodeled the kitchen last summer. In doing so, we exposed this awesome brick chimney. You might recognize it from some of our merchandise photos. Over the last year I collected some goodies that coordinate perfectly with the red brick. …and this is what welcomes you into our home!

Knit Together

One of my clients gave a gift certificate for Knit Together, a lovely little yarn shop here in Des Moines. I finally had a chance to go out and spend it. Of course, I took Leslie for moral support!

Here's my loot:
Baby is going to have the softest hats and mittens and pods! :)
