Hi, I'm Angela! I am a mother, daughter, wife, middle school teacher, and Sunday School teacher. I love all things farmhouse, galvanized metal, chippy paint, and raw wood. I am a sucker for a good DIY and I will never get tired of poking around in antique shops. Find what makes you happy and enjoy it as often as you can!
March is Women’s History Month. There are many amazing children’s books available about fantastic females who have contributed to history in some way. As a mother of little girls, it’s important to me to make sure they know about women who have made significant accomplishments throughout history. It’s important to empower our girls and teach them that there are no limits to what they can accomplish. Please comment below if you have any other great books you’d like to share!
Women can be anything and do anything! We love this book, because it features female scientists, female astronauts, and even politicians. Plus. it’s written for a younger audience, so it’s appropriate for my five year old.
This is a slightly “older” version of the “Dream Big, Little One” book. From Marian Anderson to Katherine Johnson, this book talks about extraordinary women around the world. My oldest child has learned so much about women she’d never even heard of (and so have I).
I have wanted to read I am Malala with my daughter so bad, but at age 10, I wasn’t sure she was quite ready for the young reader’s edition. This book is for a slightly younger crowd and is much more age appropriate for her.
How about a women’s history coloring book? I have recently ordered this and can’t wait to share it with my girls.
What are your favorite books about women’s history to read with your children?
Spring is right around the corner…but if the groundhog can be believed, spring will come early this year. The recent warm temperatures have made me wish more and more for spring. Currently, my home is still decorated for winter, so I’m anxious to put up the snowmen and bring out the florals! While Hobby Lobby and some of the other craft stores have beautiful decor options, sometimes they’re a bit hard on your wallet. Enter Dollar General: cheap, but cute spring decor.
These cute little succulent pots are only $2! I am definitely going to snatch some of those up.
If you don’t like those, here is another option. These square “concrete” succulents are adorable. I may buy a few of those, too.
You could use this to put ice and drinks in for a party or cookout, or you could plant flowers in it. Put it in your laundry room and use it to corral your detergent containers. So many possibilities.
These little bud vases remind me of Rae Dunn. They’re cute and they’re colorful. I love them!
You know how much I love signs and quotes. I’d love to get this and put it in my daughter’s rooms. Isn’t it cute?
This isn’t necessarily a spring decor item, but I do love it. Dollar General always has some cute coffee mugs.
What cute, but cheap spring decor are you jonesin’ for?
The temperatures are still a little cool around here to start setting out spring flowers, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t started thinking about what I want to plant.
I’ve recently happened upon all sorts of neat ideas for turning things into unique planters. Recycling unwanted household items by filling them with beautiful flowers is a win-win situation, in my opinion.
My grandpa gave me this cute old chair. It had a metal slat seat in it. I took the seat out and popped a planter into it. Doesn’t it look cute with this fern in it?
I want an old washtub so I can do this! Wouldn’t that be cute?
This toolbox planter is absolutely adorable.
I need a carriage now so I can plant flowers in it.
I have never thought about planting anything in a flour sifter but this is pretty cute!
I hope you all have a great week! Join us on Friday for our spring home tour.
Good Friday morning to you! I hope you are all well and healthy. At this time, many of us are planning our yearly spring cleaning projects and trying to find more efficient ways to do our regular cleaning.
If you know me at all, you know how much I love making lists, especially if it’s a checklist. This week, I thought I’d share two of my printable checklists with you.
There are certain cleaning chores I like to complete each week, but sometimes we get busy and I need a visual to help me remember what I’ve finished.
