Girl Crush

Last week was a crazy week I think I might be behind in just about anything a person can be behind in . . . but this weekend we were able to not only catch up but make some serious backyard progress. :) I will have photos to share tomorrow! I am so excited to share. Our backyard project was one of those projects that you plan out . . . and you think it will look great, but it turns out to be so much better than you thought. I love those projects.

Now on to the girl crush part of my post. If you caught last weeks post you would have seen our new Sophie Conran measuring cups and spoons and I told you about our new dishes . . . but it seems like my new girl crush with Sophie Conran doesn't stop at dishes I picked up this adorable little bird feeder and brought it home . . . it wasn't until I read the tag (at home) that I realized my new BFF ;) Sophie designed it. Too funny.
I found my bird feeder at Chapters . . . $34.50 with 50% off so I paid just over $17.
I love that the little teal tray pulls out for easy cleaning,
and I LOVE how the white pops against the green from the cedars and maple trees.
It's definitely something that can be DIY'd. We chose not to, I am working on a post about our DIY philosophy . . . but in a nut shell it basically comes down to time vs. savings/payoff. (I will definitely go into more detail in my post . . . it seems to be a question we get asked a lot).

So there, I've opened up about my new girl crush. I am also working on a post about Simplicity , and I'll share my new dishes and some of my thoughts and feelings on simplicity. I don't know if it's because we're hoping to add a baby to our life soon . . . or if I'm getting older, but the urge to simplify is stronger than ever.

Make sure to pop back tomorrow, I'll have some of our first outdoor photos of the season as well as all of the big changes in the backyard!

  3. I love that feeder. I haven't come across it before and just found it in the UK so result. I agree with you - I couldn't make it for the cost so would just rather buy it. I also collect Sophie Conran for Portmeirion crockery and love it. So simple - I collect it in the off white. My mother has the same ones in sludgey green which are gorgeous but I think they are discontinued now, sadly :)

  8. So cute! It goes so well with your yard! I hear you on the DIY vs. Ready-made. Sometimes a product is better than what you can DIY for the same (or not much more) in cost. I don't mind paying for convenience. I still like the creativity behind DIY though, its just not often worth it to *me*.

  9. I am a fairly new reader, but I love your blog. And I couldn't agree more about simplicity. I don't know what it is but the older I get the more I want things to be simple. I have recently been purging my home of unnecessary stuff, clutter, and anything we just aren't using and shouldn't keep. Less really is more. Except maybe when it comes to shoes....=)

  10. Super cute! I love the simplicity of it, and the little pop of aqua. As you know I am all about simplifying things. I am still paring things down.
