Wishing all the moms a Happy Mother’s Day!


  1. Lots of great projects to check out! I think I need to add pom poms to my bike basket. How fun is that! We all need a touch of whimsy. Love that. Have a very Happy Mother’s Day Kate!

  2. All of these projects are very cute! I’m definitely bookmarking this post and checking all of them out, and possibly trying one or two of them. :)

  3. I loved looking at all the ORC link ups. Such great talent out there! The only thing that bothered me, was all the close up pictures and over accessorizing for the shots. Sometimes less is more. It was evident with all the accessories on the tables and the pillow overload, no one would be really living in the room as shot. Autumn was one of the my favorites, and one of the few that didn’t over accessorize, so I see why you chose to use her room :)
