little bits of now

 I think that my favorite part of our new teepee is finding this little one fast asleep inside. The lantern I put in the top makes it the biggest draw for my camera during these dark winter evenings. It's like a giant lamp in the living room. I think my goal for next winter is to introduce many more lamps and lanterns into the house. The difference it makes in the light around here is incredible.



Have you heard of Thredup? It's an online consignment store. You put in your sizes and then you can search by category, color, brand, whatever... and the best part... if there is anything you don't like you can send it back free of charge. I'm a pretty big fan. The box above is actually a few things I didn't like all packaged up and ready to return. If you want to check it out... you can use this link: http://www.thredup.com/r/RORJSN and get $10 off your first purchase. 

We finally found the perfect hutch for our bunny friend.
The one we were using was borrowed and needs to be returned soon. The new one that I found is actually a very small chicken coop. It is perfect for a littler box trained bunny though! It was on sale... it's cute... and it provides a ton of room for the little guy to run around (and seek shelter). We still bring him in the house often, but now if we have a really busy day... I don't feel terribly guilty if we aren't able to get him out.



A few weeks ago the girls built some fairy houses in our flower gardens, and they are so excited watching all of the crocuses pop up perfectly around their little creations.


I planted these flowers last spring and they are my new favorites. It is called hellebore. I am planning to plant more this spring. Their leaves are really incredible looking and stay green and growing year round. Then they sprout these gorgeous flowers at the end of winter.
Spring planting...
now that is something to get excited about.

What a cozy spot to curl up. The hutch is beautiful, such a lucky bunny. I agree, spring planting is on my mind here, and soon my hands will be in the dirt again...I can't wait!

I *love* thread up, it's a bit addicting! I just sent in my first bag of clothes, hoping for some good credit. :) I love the hutch! It's perfect. Hope you guys are getting some sun down there too - it's hard not to want to run out and do it all right away when the rain stops! I keep having to remind myself it's still February!
