That looks awesome! I found you through Jessica Kettle, and I have to be honest, I'm a lurker. Anyway- I love it! Where did you find a class for upholstery? I would really love to do that!

I'm always amazed at the photos of your Simone sitting calmly in your meticulous house. I have two toddler boys their age and I can hardly keep them from tearing my house down. See those shiny glass Christmas balls over there? Those would have been the first thing destroyed! I tell myself that it's because they're boys, but if you have a trick, PLEASE let me know! P.S. I don't want to creep you out. I discovered you and your sister's blog through Etsy and am always fascinated by your precious photos and daughter's antics.
