What's Making Me Happy :: 166



Happy Friday friends! The weekend is almost here and the temperatures are above 50 so we're all basically in flip flops already in anticipation of Spring. I'm hoping to spend as much time outside as possible planning some big landscaping changes for the upcoming seasons and am SUPER pumped about it. In the meantime, here are a few things that made me happy this week:

Feeling super fortunate that both Eric and I were able to get our COVID test last week. YAY SCIENCE!!!

Eric bought me an AMAZING loom and weaving class from The Crafters Box/Sunwoven Studios and I've been a weaving field ever since. I just finished the weaving above and am trying to decide on the best place in our home to place it.

I found the @allsaintshouse through The Gold Hive blog (as I do most things) and am OBSESSED. Ever since we stayed in a renovated church Airbnb for Emilie's bachelorette, I've always kept an eye out for old churches for sale and this gothic church turned beautiful home has given me major house envy.

Every year around the end of February/mid-March things in Missouri start to look and feel like Spring and Eric and I get the outdoor gardening itch… but being Missouri, its tricksy to actually get outside and plant ANYTHING for fear of frosts and late season snow. We’ve got big plans for our backyard and gardens this year so we’ve been drawing and plotting away until it’s time to get out the shovels and rakes. In the meantime, we stumbled upon an ABSOLUTE GEM of a TV show that warms our gardeners hearts called Gardeners World. It’s British and so lovely, and there are about 50 seasons if you want to go wild. I highly recommend checking it out (and joining me in my ultimate wish of a walled garden). If you’re looking for something on this side of the pond, we also love the Urban Farmstead you tube channel, Kyle is so thorough and his backyard is major inspiration!

 Speaking of gardening, Eric bought me this pair of gardening overall shorts and Y’ALL. They are so amazing and comfortable and stretchy. I bought them in green but am kinda kicking myself for not getting the fun veggie print… I’ll bet it’s also in my wardrobe before the end of summer.

 Completely obsessed with Ashley’s custom plate rack in her equally enviable kitchen remodel. I’ve loved following Ashley throughout all of her home projects because she’s so thorough and makes me feel like I can do anything with enough research.

 Harper is crawling, pushing himself to seated, and even pulled himself up to standing (those last two BOTH happened on Wednesday… we’ve been busy in the Krug house)! He’s also obsessed with putting things in his mouth, trying to pull on electric cords (computer cords really intrigue him) and untying your shoelaces. I’m trying to decide if I’m going to just buy a pre-made busy board (this one, this one, and this one are all saved on Etsy) or if I want to try and take a stab at making my own. This site has a great tutorial and the board is so cute!

 This lemon hack is a GAMECHANGER.

 Have you also been obsessed with reading about the last lost tourist – the story of a German man in the 1970’s who thought he’d landed in San Francisco when he actually was in Maine?
