Burlap Bunting

A big thank you to all for the kind words and thoughtful promises of prayer
for this pregnancy and our family.

As many of you now know, we miscarried identical twins at 11 weeks back in March, and it was a very difficult time for us. We were told we would more than likely need to undergo fertility treatments to conceive again as I was having a few problems, but praise the Lord, He had a better plan.

We are praying for a healthy happy baby come this January.

I am admittedly very behind on blogging and have hundreds of pictures to sort through, but sometimes taking a break and taking care of oneself does, and should, take priority. Pregnancy in my 20's versus my 30's  has been a different ballgame. But, at 15 weeks now, I feel more and more like my old self everyday.

Thanks again for those of you who still check in on us from time to time. : )

Today was a rainy day here in Detroit, so while Harbor occupied himself with blocks and dump trucks, I made a quick and easy burlap bunting.

I hung it upstairs at the top of our landing above a mirror that needed a little something extra.

Bulap is a really fun trend right now-
and for less than $3.00 a yard, you can really afford to create something fun!
: )


  1. Great bunting! I haven't bought any burlap yet, but want to so I can try some projects I've been seeing on Pinterest.

    So happy to hear you're doing well!


  2. I'm delurking...I've been checking and was worried, praying that things were going well!! So glad to hear your news.

  4. I love it! So glad things are going well and you are feeling good!

  5. I'm so glad that things are going well. My husband, son, and I were in Cleveland on Friday. We went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It was fun! I thought of you while enjoying the view of Lake Erie. I think that you are lucky to live near it. I live in Sinking Spring, OH.....about 250 miles south of it. So, it's a treat to visit once in a while.

    BTW, my daughter is expecting her 2nd child, a girl, on Oct. 25. She is 28 weeks. I found your blog through Kelly's Korner when Kelly, my daughter, Ashley, and you were all expecting your 1st babies. I love seeing pictures of the little ones and am thrilled with more on the way! God bless!

  6. So glad things are going well for you!! I have been lurking through your older posts and am wondering where you get your shirts? They always look Comfortable yet professional. I am looking for things to add to my teaching wardrobe. Any suggestions on great pieces would be great!!!!

  7. You are so creative! I love it!
