Glass Fusing with the Boys

Over the summer I had bought a Groupon for a glass making place called Make It Glass and while we didn't get a chance to use it during the summer we headed out there with the boys last week before the Groupon expired. I'm glad we did.. it was such an interesting experience. 




Both boys glued and layered their little pieces of colorful glass. Once finished we learned about the different temperatures the glass pieces are fused together at. Now while my brain has forgotten the temps I can surely say there was the option of high and medium.. lol.

High results in a smooth finish while medium it more textured. So we went with a smooth finish on H's piece and a textured finish for D's piece.

        
 The before and after of H's creation!

And up on the wall in his room as a switch plate.

A Clean Slate

Hope you all had a great holiday.. we spent most of our time at home relaxing and catching up on some much needed rest and home time. We did go out Thanksgiving morning to watch Coco in the theater.. great movie.. we really liked it.

Last week I shared with you our new patio well while we were having the back ripped out and since we already had all the machinery we thought we get the front of the house too. 



The landscaping we inherited with the house was taking over the entire front yard.. all the bushes blocked our view and maintaining all the overgrown was tiresome.. we also had no direct walkway from the door to the street.. except for going all the way down the driveway.. so we found that we along with delivery people, guests.. all usually just ended up walking through the grass and around all the plants. Not something we loved.. so..


We got it all pulled out to start with a clean slate.

Shroom Climbing - The season was autumn, the spot, Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire. It is a 35 mile long scenic route through the White Mountains. Along the stunningly scenic route there are no gas stations, no eateries just pure nature. Scattered along the route are parking areas, view points and hiking trails. On one of our many hikes through the White Mountain I came across this gorgeous growth of mushrooms at the foot of a tree. I was mesmerized.

Brand New Patio

This post is a bit over due.. more like a year over due.. I kept putting it off because I never thought I had pictures good enough to do the space justice. But I think it's about time..







Well there is the before.. everything was over grown, the wood rotting, wobbly bricks.. it was a large space but just not very welcoming. 

We went back and forth between building a deck or a patio and in the end decided to go with a patio.

And so the work of ripping out the old and laying down a new one began..




and then comes the hard part of picking out the stone.. 






And then we were all done.. or so you'd think. We then began our search for patio furniture.


We went with a brown rectangular wicker table and coral metal chairs for the pop of color.


some comfy chairs  


and once the nights got longer and cooler we moved the table and chairs to the shed and the fire pit came out

Shiny Black Balls - With all the grandiose and all old French architecture in the Versailles this modern installation stood out and attracted everyone attention. A sea of black balls on metal wires covering one section of the garden swaying in the light autumn breeze.

hey guys.. here we are in November.. as the year winds down I have been obsessed with winter cleaning.. I have taken it upon myself to wash the walls.. my mother's friend had this brilliant idea to use a Swiffer to wash the walls and I am loving it.. every weekend I pick a room and Swiffer away.. and when I see those little smudging toddler finger prints vanish it fills me with joy.. 

This is something I do all year around but with holiday shopping around the corner I have been doing it more often.. going through the house and finding things we have no need for and selling them on ebay. Also gives me great joy.. 

We have a little getaway planned around Christmas time.. and an even more exciting trip is being planned for spring break.. yay! 


Speaking of jobs.. I am venturing into family portraits.. I had my first shoot yesterday, it is a change working with people after years of taking photographs of inanimate objects.. but I am looking forward to trying out new things.

Personalized Photo Memory Game

Just want to preface the post with *this is not a sponsored post* I genuinely love this item.. love it so much I bought my second set a few months ago.

I  am raving about the Pinhole Press Memory Game. When D was turning 4 I saw it on Cup of Jo and she was offering a promo code so I bought one for him as a present. We don't have family close by so I wanted the photographs to be of D with various members of our family. We D got a little older we realized the set of 24 cards just aren't enough.. and with H turning four in a few months I just ordered a set for him too.. a game of 48 makes it much more fun and challenging. Plus the boys and I love reminiscing over the old adorable photos. 








This makes such a great and memorable present for the kids, for yourself.. a wonderful keepsake, something to treasure forever.
