For safety reasons, we've decided to carpet the stairs. I wasn't expecting to love the look, softness, and reduced stair creakiness so much!
Behold, my new stairs!
They really brighten up the space!
Also, I might have told you (or even posted photos already? Who can remember...) about Maggie's new jammie-jeans that I made her for school. Well, here's a front/side view. You can see the pocket and side-seam detailing. Note that they're also hemmed with yellow thread, and that there's a mock "fly" in the front.
And here's the back. Faux pockets! She loves them. Everyone loves them! Sweatpants that look like jeans, it's utterly brilliant. I want some!
Desiree is the chronically sleep-deprived, compensatorily over-caffeinated, word-fabricating mother of two sweet girls and two hairy dogs. She figured that if she can't remember what happened yesterday, she'd never remember much of her little ones' childhoods, so she started this blog, finally, in 2008. Enjoy!
