The Seven Myths of Home Decor BUSTED !

Hello there, Is winter over yet? I am so ready for spring!!
If you follow me on Pinterest, I would like to apologize for bombarding your feed with home décor ideas. Every spring I move furniture around, go crazy with DIY projects
and I blame it all on Pinterest!
 I think Spring is the perfect time to move things around in your home, reorganize, give it a new fresh look but without breaking the bank!
  I came across this fun and useful graphic on yorkshirelinen.com and thought to share it with you.
 
You are welcome!;)

Hello 2014 and some news.

via

 

So here we are. A bran new year. I read some were on Pinterest that the new year it's like  the beginning of a new book ( tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book, write a good one).
 I like how that sounds, a fresh start, although you don't have to wait for 1 January or Monday to have a fresh new start.
 Anyway, I don't have a New Years resolution to share with you, I tried a few times and forgot about my list two weeks later. 
Bu I do want to wish you all a Happy New Year filled with lots of great memories, tears of joy and tummy aches from to much   laughter !
 
Now on to the news:
 
 
This year we got the best Christmas present we could wish for !We are expecting baby number 3!
We are very exited, it's something we planned but we are surprized it happened after only two months of trying to conceive.
It's going to be a summer baby!
As far as the pregnancy go's, it's the worst one so far. Really, really bad ! I hope it go's away soon and my energy comes back!

Are you in college or know someone in college? Did you know you can RENT your texbooks?/ Operation Smile

Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives.
Did you know that every three minutes a child is born with a cleft? — often unable to eat, speak, socialise or smile. In some places these children are shunned and rejected.
 And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a normal life!

Here is one of many touching stories :



Abandoned by both her parents, Maria Eulália Cabralda Costa faced incomprehensible pain during her first five years of life in Brazil.
She was born with a cleft lip that scarred her beautiful features. Her parents separated when she was just a baby, and her father chose two of her siblings to live with him. Her mother chose two others. Neither of them wanted Maria, a beautiful little girl with huge eyes that reflect her emotions.
When Maria’s parents left her, the city’s Child Protection Council called her grandmother, who chose to raise her small granddaughter.
As Maria grew older, she begged her grandmother to allow her to skip school. Her classmates taunted and tormented her, yelling, “You are crippled. Stay away from me.” Maria was too embarrassed to even play with children in her neighbourhood. If she ventured from her home, she covered her mouth with her hands.
Maria’s grandmother was determined to find help for her granddaughter. She first approached the mayor of her city, who was also a doctor. Eventually, a government official directed her to Operation Smile.
When she arrived at the medical mission in Fortaleza, 5-year-old Maria immediately captured the hearts of all the medical volunteers. After her surgery, she was bursting with laughter and smiles.
“I’m so very happy,” said her grandmother. “She plays, runs, talks. She is completely different. Everything has changed for the best. She is not ashamed anymore. Now, she is always looking at herself in the mirror. She always says that she is beautiful, that she is gorgeous. It was everything we have ever wanted.”


Here is how you can help and benefit from it as well...,

Girls Wear.

I have a confession to make. This mama loves fashion.
 ( not a big surprize to some of you).
 Not crazy in love about it , but I like to be creative and resourceful when it comes to clothing.
Here comes in my passion for thrifting and DIY.
Having two girls doesn't help my husband very much.
 I sometimes most of the time put the girls outfit together and at the last minute I throw something on and out the door we go. So, on  that note, I thought I'll share some outfits ideas for ....my girls.
Oh well...that's what happens when you become a mother. You put your kids first. 
Now, some of these are quite pricey so just feel inspired  by them, that is what I tell myself every time I go crazy on Pinterest. 
I don't know about where you live but in England the weather is bleah most of the time. So the outfit selection is mostly for a colder season. I know it's summer in Australia now...not at all jealous. 
 
Enjoy.

On my heart...

 
 
It's late in the night, but I want to write this down now as it's fresh in my memory.
Every night we sit together  as a family and we come before the Lord in prayer.
I love hearing my little girls sweet voices thanking the Lord for their day, things like: thank you God that mummy played with me, or that daddy tickled me and we lough so hard,  little things  that are high lights of their day.
Tonight Emma prayed : Thank you God that I have a mummy and a daddy and a sister, and hank you for everything you created and that you painted the flowers so beautifully.
Oh, my heart! 
 I was reminded trough a child of the things we sometimes take for granted.
