We stopped in at Ball and Buck’s new location, cooked Tex-Mex for our neighbors, and were amazed by the selection at Mahoney’s Garden Center.

This week’s Field Guide is all about felt.

Felt has a tendency to be a little crafty which makes it an ideal material for, well, children’s crafts. It doesn’t have to be just for kids, though some of the objects I picked (like the cute sheep garland) would be great in a nursery. Felt can be pliable or rigid which lends itself to many unusual uses like litter boxes, vases, and lampshades. If you do it right, it has the potential to be really modern. Here are just a few ways it could work in your home.

We didn’t do much this week, unless you count taxes and locking ourselves out of our apartment. Good fun, right? We did make it out to IKEA, which was great! Bought a new light fixture for the living room, some venetian blinds for the back door, and a couple of extras because you know we just couldn’t resist.
