Fairy Garden Containers

I have been wanting to create a Fairy Garden with the kids for ages!
We finally put one together and created a video to share just how easy it actually is!
I found all of the fairy pieces and wooden disks at Michael’s during one of their huge sales.
I HIGHLY recommend you keep an eye out for the sales…I’m pretty sure they were all 65% off that day!
Hobby Lobby also has a fairy garden section near floral that goes on sale.
The Containers are from Walmart and are their Better Homes and Gardens line.
I bought two and already had one. Grab some dirt and flowers and you are all set!

For our flowers I chose all sun loving plants! I knew that these
would be in the front of the house…and needed to be able to take the heat!
The girls are in charge of watering and tending to their little fairy garden.

Like I mention in the video, you just drill some holes in to the bottom of your containers to help with drainage.
That’s really the only tough part of the project. If you use containers that are made for planters, and already
have holes, than you can get started on the planting and decorating a lot quicker!
I’ve seen pretty ones done in big barrel containers!

I’m obsessed with Magnolia Silos and their Fairy Gardens there.
They had containers for their gardens and lots of metal bins in their outdoor decor
so I just made them work together!
You could easily just do this in the ground around flowers you have, but we only have
potted plants around our house right now.
I like that we can move it around though!

The kids have been loving how the project turned out
and keep checking on their little fairy gardens.
We hope you give it a try!

New Favorite Pair of Born Shoes!

When shoe shopping, I’m needing comfortable but cute these days!
Today I teamed up with Born to share another style of theirs
that I love— both for me and my hubby!
My favorite wedges are Born shoes and I’ve shared them before because I’m obsessed!
I won’t buy another brand when it comes to wedges for me! If you’ve been wanting shoes
that you can comfortably wear, wrangle kids in, and are still pretty, these are for you.
You can find your own pairs at Dillards!

Ben was excited to get in on the shoe action.
His shoe is the ALLAN in color, Ebano
I think he looks so cute, but I’m biased.
They are a great shoe style to have!

The style I’m wearing is the HENNING in white.
They are SO cute and comfortable! I could do a light jog in these babies. If I wanted too. haha.
Or…like if I had to chase Asher in the back of church..these are good for that. ;)
The rubber sole helps grip to the ground more than a traditional leather bottom and makes it easier to move.
I’m in a season of motherhood exhaustion. with baby bumping and four big kids to take care of,
but I still want to feel pretty and enjoy dressing up!

When I look at the sandals I see that there is a unique stitching around the toe up to the heel that is sewn by hand.
This hand sewn construction technique is unique to Born and allows the shoe to flex and move with the foot for a natural feel!
Glue isn’t what keeps the bottoms of these shoes together, but carefully placed stitches.
This means the shoe will be way more flexible, and last much longer than shoes that have been glued together.
This is why my shoes that I’ve gotten from them over the years are still holding up great!
These shoes can keep up with your  busy schedule… whether your running errands,
chasing kids or enjoying a night out with your girlfriends!
Born is the shoe you can rely on from 7AM to 9PM.
When I go to pack for trips, I always bring my Born shoes.
And when I know I’m going to be out with the kids but still want a pretty wedge…
I always go for my Born shoes!athomewithnatalie-born shoes3
Today’s post was sponsored by Born, but as always, thoughts are my own.
I genuinely love these shoes and hope you guys try them!

Easter 2017

I captured some Easter 2017 memories and finally got a chance to put together a video!
Sharing our traditions and family time from the day.
We always love looking back at the Holidays as the kids get older and remembering the fun.
Jesus is Risen! Alleluia Alleluia!
With me being nauseas/tired still, we stayed home and had some fun family time.
Played, ate a lot and went to Mass in the evening at our Parish.
Sorry it’s kind of bumpy, was trying to get each kid’s reaction but was all over the place!
Hope you had a wonderful Easter with people you love!
