This past weekend, the Army sent me to a volunteer conference in my state's capital. While I learned a great deal, I just wasn't used to being away from my family! It was so wonderful to get home Sunday evening and resume our tradition of watching Mad Men after the kiddos went to bed. Of course, it's good for everyone to experience new things and network with new people every now and then, but these past few years, I've found that I'm most content hanging out at home with the people I love!

It's no secret that I adore the work of Rebecca Harkin from Chirp and Bloom. After all, her robin applique coin purse is on the cover of this month's Simply Handmade! Each piece Rebecca creates is timeless, yet quaint. Her stitches are impeccable and she never strays from her trademark style.
As I browsed through her shop this morning, I knew I had to share this with you. Isn't is the most adorable thing you've ever seen? I'd love to have one for my little girl to wear this summer! The yoke onesie and ruffled bloomers are available in other vintage prints, too! Click on the photos above to visit Chirp and Bloom, yourself.
I thought I'd post a little sneak peek of the decorations I made for the Winter Wonderland-themed Army Christmas party, which is tomorrow. (It absolutely snuck up on me; I had to have clothes and shoes over-nighted!) Everything is comprised of tulle and satin in shades of blues and silver. Gorgeous!
