Naptime Diaries | La La Lovely Blog

Happy Friday, lovelies.

Fridays are always great for sharing a favorite!

And, this week, pretty art is my favorite.  This gorgeous, colorful, piece is by Naptime Diaries.  Honestly, I’ve been a Naptime Diaries fan for awhile now, following them on Instagram and keeping up with their work, which is both gorgeous and meaningful.

It’s funny how some things feel like they will never change.  Seasons that seem like they will never end.

Winter.  Winter.  Winter.

Hot summer.  Hot summer.  Hot summer.

And then, one unexpected day something shifts.  Like a shadow.  A flower blooms.  A leaf falls to the ground, and you wonder when exactly it turned from green to yellow.  Suddenly, the scorching summer is but a shadow.  Yesterday doesn’t turn into today.  Yesterday, just turns . . .

What can I do that could make any kind of difference?

Book Bin #DIY

I’ve rounded up 3 darling DIYs that have caught my eye, recently.  Honestly, I’m not really even sure if one qualifies as DIY because it only requires paper and scissors, but it’s an idea I really wanted to share and one I’m going to try in my home.

But, first things first . . .

When I first saw this book bin I wondered where I could buy it.  And, lo and behold someone made it!  I’m always amazed when people make such gorgeous DIY pieces.  This lined mid-century book bin was made by This Little Street.  I’m so glad I happened upon this blog because it’s super bright and cheery and filled to the brim with darling DIYs

Next, could be called a DIY or also known as an . . .
