Just dropping by to show off our front garden’s insane growth over the last six weeks. It’s hard to believe that it was covered under multiple inches of snow until just a few months ago! We inherited all of the large hostas with the house and added 2 small ones of different varieties. The crepe myrtle (aka Pride of India) is very late to the party again this year, but it’s finally starting to fill out. Oh and we replaced the pokey shrubs under the windows with some gorgeous holly I found at Costco for a steal.
Click below to see a fun little time-lapse video of the hosta / periwinkle / crepe myrtle growth since the end of April.

Bet you didn’t expect to hear anything from me any time soon! It’s been so quiet here at This Sarah Loves. Luckily, that doesn’t mean that we haven’t been doing anything around the house – in fact I’m really far... Continue reading →
We (like most of you) make regular little updates around the house. Sometimes I feel like we’re not making enough progress on the big things, so every few weeks I plan on sharing some of the little updates that make... Continue reading →
Finally, a post that’s NOT about sewing! Aren’t you excited?! Ever since we assembled the Karlstad, we knew we needed a new coffee table. A couple of weeks ago we sold the coffee table on Craigslist to give us the... Continue reading →
I feel like this rag quilt allowed me to step out of my comfort zone a little. I love the combination of the fun and whimsical owl print with the floral teal. I paired it with purple gingham and a... Continue reading →
This is the other blanket we’re making for the twin baby girls. I wanted fabric that had a similar feel, without being a complete copy of the Spring Kittens blanket. Even though I LOVE the completed blanket, when I look... Continue reading →
