Lilly has a new favorite kids brand! I love when we find both cute and classic clothing for kids that isn’t mass produced! And Hadley Girl is all that, plus comfortable so Lilly loves wearing it!

Hello Hadley started out as a bow company (I bet many of you have seen them before). Lilly has some of their striped and floral scrunchies and even I love borrowing them! They’re based in Colorado and the line was started by a mom who wanted cute accessories for her kids to play in. This year they extended their collection to clothing and it’s just sooo cute! Lilly’s favorite dress of all is this stripe peony everyday dress. It’s so cute on! Here are more of our favorites from the collection!

Today I’m so excited to introduce you all to my amazingly talented friends’ new project – Lil Bit Lit! It’s a new type of children’s publishing house founded by these three beauties – Jenny DiBenedetto, Molly Fienning, and Raven Roxanne.

Their mission is to create beautiful, art-forward story books – written and illustrated by awesome Southern artists. They’re first story book, A Raven’s Nest, is a tale of a young girl named Raven and her mischievous dog Willie. Expect to see whimsical, abstract nests and a lot of color by Charleston artist, Raven Roxanne.

 

 

But A Raven’s Nest needs our support! I just purchased my advance copy through their Lil Bit Lit Kickstarter! I hope you’ll purchase your copy, too! And you HAVE to watch the video the girls made – it’s beautiful. Check it out right here!

I’m so excited to partner with Framebridge for Mother’s Day! They’ve been my go to for framing for the last 2 years! They’re website is really easy and fun to use (not to mention gorgeous!). And their custom framing is beautiful and high quality! With Mother’s Day less than a month away Framebridge is the perfect destination for special, one of a kind gifts.

 

 

Some of my most favorite art pieces in our home were made by my kids. These pieces deserve to be framed! And it makes Lilly and Fletcher so happy to see their art hung on the wall. Framed kids art makes for the best Mother’s Day gift, don’t you think?

 

 

There are two easy ways you can frame – 1) Upload a photo from your computer, phone, or instagram feed for Framebridge to custom frame or 2) Mail in your original art and objects for Framebridge to custom frame. They provide free, prepaid packaging!

 

 

Framebridge has a lot of handmade frame options to choose from. Just upload an image of the piece you want framed and you can see it in all of the frame options!

 

 

I actually find this tool kind of addicting. I love plugging in different pictures and seeing how they look in different frames. I love how this abstract by Fletcher turned out in the Marin Frame.

 

 

We spruced up our library area with some new pieces, too.

 

 

Lilly made this self portrait with her pastels and I framed it in the Stella frame using a personalized mat saying “Lilly (age 8)”. Loving this new personalizing feature they’re offering.

 

 

And this family photo was printed from my instagram feed! It’s actually of a Mother’s Day past and is so special to me. It’s in the Henry frame.

 

 

Live life. Frame more. – Framebridge’s motto, and I like it. A few dates to note – Mother’s Day mail in orders deadline is April 22, the digital upload deadline is May 6th! You can start framing right here!

Happy International Women’s Day! As mother, wife, and friend it means so much to me to see women celebrated and lifted. I know I just shared these photos last week in Lilly’s Bedroom Reveal post but I want to share these three again today to highlight one of the best books Lilly and I have ever read (and we’ve read a lot!).

 

 

Bedtime Stories for Rebel Girls is comprised of 100 stories about the lives of 100 extraordinary women from the past and present. All beautifully illustrated by 60 amazingly talented female artists from around the world. This book is so good that I think every girl should own it. We are getting the sequel  edition, Bedtime Stories for Rebel Girls 2, for Lilly for Easter.

 

 

“Adventure is worthwhile in itself” – Amelia Earhart. Check out the Rebel Girls books right here :)

I am REALLY happy to share these pictures of Lilly’s bedroom makeover with Annie Selke. It was high time for a fresh look in here. When I asked Lilly if she would like to make over her room she gave me one of these…

 

 

Duh, Mom. Annie Selke was the perfect partner for this project because we already know and love the brand. I used a lot of AS products at Coral House! They hold up well and are easy to care for, so they’re great for a kid’s room.

 

 

It’s obvious that Lilly loves her “new” room. The bedding is SO soft. Like, so soft that I barely want to get up after bedtime stories. We knew we wanted to lighten up her room so I chose the Stone Washed Linen White Duvet Cover for her bed. It feel cozy and luxurious, and it’s machine washable and can be thrown in the dryer, too.

 

 

The Trio Coral Sheet Set is 400 thread count and has a clean but bright look. Super comfy, too. These are her new favorite sheets that she wants on her bed at all times.

 

 

Naturally Lilly wanted some more pink in her room, so the Stone Washed Linen Coral Shams were the perfect accent to pull together the linen duvet and coral edged sheets. And the Laundered Linen Coral Decorative Pillow gives a nice seamless look (plus it makes for a great body pillow).

 

 

The Citrus Shimmer Velvet Decorative Pillows pull in the green stripe of the rug. That Annie Selke makes it easy to mix & match ;)

 

 

Here’s a close up of the Josie Ticking Woven Cotton Rug. If it looks familiar, we have it at Coral House, too!

 

 

Annie Selke sent along their Odette Ostrich and it’s a big hit with Lilly!

 

 

The Washed Linen White Window Panels brighten up the room a ton and make the small space feel larger.

 

 

We love Lilly’s new room, it’s the perfect space for her to play and dream.
