Beverage Jars

I've been considering buying a beverage jar for awhile now. I got an email from Sur la Table today advertising their beverage jars at 20% off. So I popped onto their website and saw the jars pictured above. I think the Beehive jar is adorable!

So then I decided to look around a bit and see what else is out there...

PotteryBarn has some great options. The jar pictured above is acrylic which would be great for outdoors, especially if children are involved!

Another one of my favorites from PotteryBarn is the Mason Jar collection.

You can round out the beverage dispenser and mugs with these hanging Mason Jar Lanterns. How fun would that be for an outdoor dinner party?!

Now all we need in Seattle is a little Summer weather....

My most FAVORITE thing

My favorite 'thing' in the whole world is turning 3 tomorrow.

This little guy brings me more joy than I ever thought possible. He makes me laugh every day. He is funny, sweet, caring, sensitive, loving, and happy. I just can't say enough about him. I love that he is mine, I love being his momma. And I love that I get to share this experience with his wonderful daddy.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Cameron. I love you to the moon....and back.

Pillow Talk

I'm on a throw pillow kick lately. I'm searching high and low for the perfect throw pillows....not with any particular place to put them; I'm just enjoying the search. ;)

I came across this page in the March 2010 issue of Real Simple and have been drooling over it since.

I think my favorite is the one on the top right; 'Shaggy Cotton Pillow' by CB2.

But, since I'm trying to stay on a bit of a budget, I decided to make a few pillow covers of my own for my living room sofa. I bought this material ages ago, and just recently got around to pulling the sewing machine out and making them.

The lighting isn't great in this photo and doesn't really do them justice...I'll be back with better photos and instructions on how I did it soon!

Hope you're having a great week!
