Minimalism & The Playroom by Autumn from @autumnsjoys

Minimalism & The Playroom by Autumn from @autumnsjoys

Fewer, better toys are actually better for our children. Let me explain why. Minimalism, defined as a style or technique that is characterized by sparseness or simplicity. Between two kids, birthdays, holidays and four sets of grandparents, my playroom was anything but simple. In fact, it was so full of clutter and toys that my children simply wouldn’t play with anything. They would dump things out of baskets, but not take the time to play with what they’d just scattered on the floor! Something had to change. I began doing some research, with the aim to bring the concept of...

herbal bath tea for kids

herbal bath tea for kids

I love seeing a gorgeous flower bath on Instagram, don't you? They look so pretty and relaxing! While I am sure the experience is fun, I know for a fact that the clean up is not! But there are so many benefits to soaking in the tub with herbs and flowers. Did you know that taking a bath, steeping like tea, can be extremely good for your skin, hair, nails, and can even act as aromatherapy for your mind and spirit. Herbs are wonderful things! I have been making bath teas for years now, and every time we get ready...

easy veggie banner DIY - kay haupt

Hello, friends! I am so excited to share this super simple DIY with you. I started making these veggie banners last spring and was actually selling them through my shop, Under A Tin Roof. It was an awesome idea, and I loved the interest that they got, but I realized pretty quickly that although they were really easy to make, I just couldn't keep up with making them all by hand! At least not as quickly as I found satisfactory. And while I could have sewn them with a machine, I just could not give up the cute look that happens...

is the owlet a baby necessity?

is the owlet a baby necessity?

I'm sure you've heard about the Owlet baby monitor/smart sock, but is it really worth it? We've been using the Owlet for almost three months now, I'd say it's worth every penny. Pretty sure every parents' worst fear is SIDS, it's just a scary, tragic thing that happens for no reason and us as parents feel like we have no control. Sure we can practice safe sleeping the best we know how but it is still not a guarantee. How many first time parents wake multiple times a night just to check to see if their baby is breathing? I'd...
