The sun,–the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man–burst upon the crowded city in clear and radiant glory. Through costly-coloured glass and paper-mended window, through cathedral dome and rotten crevice, it shed its equal ray.

I love anything that has to do with D.I.Y. And I’m excited to finish some projects today.
I found this little rocking horse on “Junk Day”. In the beginning of spring everyone puts out their unwanted furniture etc. and I found a couple of awesome things (Just excuse my dumpster diving tendencies.) I am pretty sure I looked kinda crazy out there in the rain dragging peoples unwanted furniture into my s.u.v. 😉 It was so much fun!!
This rocking horse used to be brown with white twin hair and I just washed it down took the twin out and started painting. Its handles and foot stirrups were broken so I only had to buy some new dowel rods.
this project only cost me 10 dollars.
The first thing the Zoey did when she saw the rocking horse was begin to coo to it. She loves all animals and even if they are stuffed, made out of wood, or real. She cuddles and talks to them it is the sweetest thing.
I’m painting it cream with Grey accents. And for the mane and tale I’m going to cut different patterned peices of fabric into strips.
Can’t wait for the finish product.
# 1,890 reason Why being a mom to a toddler and infant is extremly rad! Everything is a new experience .
Like Spending your first summer in the Midwest west with aunts and uncles and cousins and a bunch of new friends.
And learning how to share with your baby sister who is now big enough to crawl over and try to steal your toys.
Summer is finally here and it’s been such a blast to be able to hop over to one of siblings places and spend time with them.
Life brings so many changes and they all come so quickly even when you’re expecting them. So I cherish these days I get to spend with family and the time my girls have getting spoiled by their aunts and uncles. And like my girls so often remind me. Every new and old experience is awesome. Even watching frozen a bazillion times. 😉
