So, I just skipped a week of blogging. I was out of town for the awesome — and amazingly overwhelming — National Needlearts Association conference in Columbus, Ohio, which was so much fun and just a really lovely city.
I’m still trying to get back into my stride, which is doubly hard since the girl has swimming lessons this week and next a good 30 miles away from home, which just throws off the whole schedule. But she’s progressing nicely this year, so it’s worth it. And I get to lounge poolside for 30 minutes or so a day, which is really nice.
It’s the beginning of a new month, which means one of our co-hosts has the top picks from last month’s posts. This time it’s Peakle Pie, so go visit her site to learn all about our favorites for the month and learn a little bit more about the family behind the site.
You’ll have to click over to get the full list, but our favorite post of the month was the Vintage Chicken Feeder Planter from New House New Home. So cute!
I’m a sucker for peg dolls, and the girl loves butterflies, so I really like these monarch butterfly peg dolls from Rhythms of Play. If you don’t happen to have monarch bodies lying around, you could also cut butterfly wing shapes out of construction paper and have your child decorate them like real or imagined butterflies.
Whole Food Home made a great take on Nutella that’s really more accurately almond butter, but either way it looks like a delicious treat without all of the sugar and other stuff that’s in the storebought version.
And I know I’ve shared with you before about DIY inventor’s boxes and tinkering kits, and Little Worlds shared some more information about what exactly is in their inventor’s box and how it is used. We love playing with random parts and putting things together in interesting new ways, and this post has some great ideas.
