Another Pair of Shoes

I made another pair of shoes today.  I'm not totally sure why I used this pattern.  I have done some really cute ones using this pattern but It takes me so much longer.  They didn't really turn out exactly how I had pictured them when I picked out the fabric today,  but they are okay.

Tire Playgrounds

I have been looking for something fun for our back yard that Little Boy could play with, namely swing sets.  All I could find in my price range would be two swings and a see saw.  Yip.  I want much more than that.  It got me thinking back to my elementary school play ground when I was a kid and it was full of tires to play on.  So this is what I'm thinking, and the Husband is down with the idea too which is excellent.

Little Boy's Bedroom

I love my Little Guy's bedroom.  I have been adding stuff here and there all year.  I still have big plans for it but I really like how it has come along.  He is really starting to like it too.  I have all of his toys in bins on the floor so they are easy for him to get out and play with and to put them back.

I got this tool bench at a thrift store especially for children's stuff called Kid to Kid  for $30. As soon as I saw it I had to have it!  Later I found the little tool bench at DI ( Utah's Good Will) for $4 dollars.  The best part was that the other tool bench came with so many tools and A lot of them are compatible with this little bench!

This of course is a pretty old chair but it is comfortable enough and fits well.  Little boy likes to play on it and we read books here.  And it is nice to have a place to sit in the middle of the night when he is crying.  I just dressed it up with a red pillow and a car blanket.
I really like how this book shelf turned out!  Read more about it here.

This was an old Magnadoodle I had growing up.  I love having it on the wall and my little boy loves when I get it down for him to play with it.  The Air plane I got at DI for a couple of dollars.

I see these little flag banners all over now.  It was really fun to make.  I'm planning on making a couple more to add to this one.

I love having all of his toys in bins.  They look it make the room look clean and organized but still very welcoming.

I love this changing table.  We got it at a yard sale for $10 when I was pregnant.  It is the perfect height.  Little boy still fits on it but sometimes I wonder if we should move it out of the room, but then I see all of the storage it has underneath and I decided to keep it in here.

These are just some little details around his room.  I still have a tiny ladder and some little construction cones the need to be put up somewhere.

Kids rooms are so fun to decorate!
