welcome


Welcome to my new favorite little spot of my home :)
For my birthday, my sister built me this amazing tee-pee from Rachel Denbow's tutorial.

She originally built it for my craft space, but because it's soooo big...we moved it out to the living room :)

We love it sooo much we are even considering getting rid of our table and chairs so that the tee-pee has more space to look cute.

My cute friend Katherine, sent me an amazing package full of goodies which included the vintage fabric I used to make my sweet bunting for the entrance. I feel like it is a little "welcome" banner for any visitors.
The inside of my tee-pee is filled with all of my most favorite quilts and afghans. There are also instax pictures of my favorite friends hanging about too.


Tonight, I am going to make a mobile of some kind to hang from the cieling :)
All in all, it was the perfect gift. I am in love with it, Adam is in love with it, Catalina is so in love with it that she slept in it last night :)

It's perfect!
Thank you Nicole for being the best sister ever.
