A Scrambled Mash-up of Ordinary Everyday Things

Sometimes I remember to stop and appreciate all of the lovely ordinary everyday things that make our home feel like... home.

Things like this navy and white striped tea towel...

...and when you have two, why not create a coordinating centrepiece?

Be sure to use things that make you smile.

This little Springtime birdie flies on wings made of jewels...

A spiral shell provokes thoughts of Summer days ahead...

Who doesn't need more sunny Summer thoughts?  Let's pile on those shells!

Our home would not be complete without the antics of our "puppy dog", Roxy.
I was trying to snap some photos of our apartment for our landlord to use in an ad for new tenants.
{I just realized that the closing date for our new house is exactly 3 weeks away!}
Well, Roxy decided that her presence would add to the scene.

I'm so grateful that she's so good with Oliver.
He loves to climb all over her {giggling the whole time} and she'll just lie there.
And she'll patiently wait for crumbs to fall at snack time.

Another of my favourite ordinary everyday things is breakfast time with Oliver.
Most days, I have oatmeal with walnuts and cranberries {I put them on everything}.
And believe me, the hot oatmeal is just the right temperature to melt chocolate chips.

And what does Oliver order up for breakfast?  Scrambled eggs, of course!


Thanks for stopping by.
