Parade of Fabrics - 10 Floral Fabrics for Under $10 a Yard

Floral fabric fabrics are really great for softening up a space & adding a feminine touch.  I especially love to use them on pillows & window treatments.  I rounded up 10 floral fabrics for under $10 a yard.  There are a ton of gorgeous floral fabrics out there, but finding them for under $10 a yard was a little tricky!
(Talk about pattern overload with all the fabrics being shown together...haha!!)

Fairy Wings For Toddlers

Sorry design post this week. It's my daughters birthday party this Saturday.  I have been a busy girl making fairy wings for her & all her little friends.  They have turned out pretty cute so far:)  I still have more to make:)
Wish me luck! I'm going to need all the luck I can get with ten little 3 & 4 year olds running around!   (Why did we invite so many kids?  I don't know! Haha!!)

My Favorite Way to Hide Toys in My Family Room

We were is desperate need of something to hide toys in our family room.  In addition, I really needed something to go along the back our loveseat.  Below, is basically the view you get when you walk into our home.  I didn't want people to walk in & the first thing they see is the bare back of our loveseat.
One day, I was meandering around TJ Maxx & spotted this cute storage ottoman.  Right away, I knew it needed to come home with me!

It has proved to be a fantastic purchase for us!  My kids can easily get toys in & out of it.  It is also a very convenient place to sit & put your shoes on before heading out the door.  In addition, it can easily be moved around to the main sitting area if extra seating is ever needed. You KNOW you have made a good purchase when your husband has said TWICE, "Melissa, buying that ottoman was a really good idea." 
Need some other ideas on how to hide toys?   Cute baskets/boxes, wall pockets (for books), & cubby bookcases …
