Quilts by Natalie Aerin

My baby quilt shop is officially open! I hope you'll hop over and take a look if you're shopping for a baby gift. I did my best to put together fabrics that are cheerful and fun, and I tried to keep things modern with the colorblock design. The quilts are generously sized at 36x48 inches, so hopefully, they can stick around when a baby becomes a toddler and even a little kid. The quilts are all limited edition based on fabric availability, so I'll be adding new designs to the shop as time goes on. I've had so much fun creating each quilt. I truly hope you like them!

New Ventures and Adventures

As you may have noticed, it's been quite awhile since this blog has been updated. It unfortunately fell by the wayside in the midst of settling into Savannah, freelance writing and househunting. We closed on our first home yesterday!!!

Also, my creative energies have been focused elsewhere. I'm launching an Etsy shop! Once Harrison was born, I just couldn't stop myself from buying fabric and designing baby quilts. It became a bit of a hobby, so I've decided to see if it can be something more. With the help of my mom, I've created 8 designs (a few of which are pictured above), and the shop should be up next week! I'm excited to take the leap and try something new. Hopefully, blogging will resurface in some form, but for now, you can find me on Instagram.

Speaking of Instagram, I have a little quilt contest happening over there if you want to check it out!

Hanging Out

We're still searching for a home in Savannah, but I'm already thinking about lounging in one of these hammocks with a tall glass of lemonade. Hopefully, we'll find a place for it soon.

L.A. Vacation Family Photos

During our California trip, we stayed in a charming rental home in Los Angeles with the loveliest enclosed patios full of succulents and citrus trees. My dear friend Amy of Reams Photo paid us a visit from San Diego and did an impromptu family photo shoot for us one afternoon because the setting and light were just too pretty to pass up. I love how she captured this moment in time for our family. These are a few of my favorites.

D is for Dog

This canine alphabet poster would make a fun addition to a gallery wall or be a great gift for a dog show enthusiast like myself. I'm happy to see my favorite Old English Sheepdog represented, and I'm always impressed when those tricky Q, X and Z categories can be filled.

Thoughts of the Week

Spiked lemonade all summer long.

I've always dreamed about living in some sort of repurposed space. This home in an 1850s church is amazing.

Who'd have thought Band-Aids could be so stinkin' cute?

Give me all the donuts please.

Also, all the donut waffles.

Ready to start my pool float collection.

I'm hairstyle-impaired, but this one seems doable.

Love this cute and classic front porch!

I hope you have a fun weekend planned! We'll be continuing our house hunt and celebrating my brother's birthday. Life still feels chaotic at the moment, which is why posts here have been so sporadic. I hope to find a routine again soon, and I hope you can forgive me. This Clickhole article comes to mind. ;) Happy Friday, friends!

We Made It

We made it to Savannah! I think packing and moving top my list of least favorite activities, but we pushed through with the help of my mom -- we desperately needed an extra set of hands to seal boxes and hold baby. Now we're settling in, searching for a home and enjoying being so close to family. I'm excited about our life in the lowcountry and seeing what unfolds next.
