I know I shared my fun score at HomeGoods last week, but I didn’t show you all this fun little crate I found too. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but it just jumped in my cart and stared at me with sad puppy dog eyes begging me to take it home…well, you know, if it had eyes. Sometimes you just see something and you know it belongs in your house even if you have no idea where, right?
I also wanted to share a fabulous new magazine with you all – Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll. A subscription would make the perfect gift for mother’s day (hint, hint Mr.)…
And I’m not just saying it’s my new favorite magazine because some of my most favorite bloggers are contributors, or because little ole me won the DIY challenge and you can find me in the first issue (although I’m totally geeked about it!).
Nope, it’s because it is filled with page after page of beautiful images, ideas, and recipes. Seriously, the photos are gorgeous – I promise just looking at them will make you happy.
Jennifer Carroll, the creative genius behind the magazine is incredibly sweet and totally talented, so I know you will want to check out her beautiful blog as well as subscribe to the magazine. Bonus they are having a “Treat Yourself” Mother’s Day special right now with single issues for your computer or iPad for $4.99 ($1 off the regular price)!
Oh and PS, I’m getting all tech savvy now that I have a snappy new smart phone (we won’t speak of the huge cracked screen my fancy new phone is currently sporting thanks to a certain overenthusiastic toddler I know) and I joined instagram! So if you would like to see some behind the scenes shenanigans here at The Lily Pad Cottage (cute kids pics, Buddy Cuddles the dog updates, and project sneak peeks) you can now follow me here. :)
