Adding a Little Color to Our Lives

I love our living room. It’s where we all, for lack of a better word, live.Ahh, all balanced again.

The kids build forts,
Hanging at home :)

and dance,
Little Miss Princess

and play swashbuckling pirates.
Silly Faces

Recently I decided that our house needed a little more color in them to match the ever growing characters of the little inhabitants in our lives.

It all started with the big granny square.

Which totally needed a pillow.
Chair full of color.

Oh, did I say A pillow? I meant lots of pillows. (Which took me MONTHS to crochet, but I totally did it!)
My favorite crochet project so far. Pillows!

It’s been quite a colorful week in our house.

I was in the basement getting out bigger clothes for Marcus (ahem 12-18 month sized) and found this lovely sweater for Molly in my hand-me-down bin.
Lovely Before...

Upon closer inspection, I saw that it needed a button.
Missing a button.

Which got me to thinking…
All sewn on.

Molly loved it. She immediately started to dance,
She loves it so much, she dances.

and dance (check out that pillow, it’s totally setting the dancing mood),
and dances.

I think all the color in our lives inspired a little shimmy,
and adds a shimmy.

and a boogie.
