Finds 'n' Fancies

granny squares

With just two and half weeks till my baby girl's due date, I'm officially nesting. Funnily enough, a very small, yet incredibly loud bird has chosen this week to begin building a nest under the safety of our front porch. My design sensibilities have clearly been affected by the phenomenon. I hope you find the following items as cozy and homey as I!

Here's hoping the birds 'round your house don't rise as early and enthusiastically as the ones 'round mine! --Katie :D


  1. I absolutely LOVE this, Katie! Your picks are fabulous and they look so great together! Plus, "granny squares" made me laugh.

  2. I love all your picks, Katie! And your story about your noisy nest builder is perfect. That bird must know her brood will be safe with another sweet mother-to-be nearby!

  3. Great picks! I love granny squares. I have a couple of crocheted afghans from my mom and husband's grandmother.

  4. Lovely picks..glad that the mama birds are gathering..

  5. Simply beautiful... all of them!

  6. How in the WORLD did I miss this post.....?!?! I LOVE Granny squares....just LOVE them, and they fit right in with the "nesting", cozy, Mom to be really soon idea. All the best Katie...sending you positive energy that your little girl will be here safe and sound soon, and you can wrap her in beautiful Granny Squares and birdsong!
