Friday's Dose of Delight {No. 12} Inspirational Wall Art & Keeping Little Girl's Smart

Happy Friday everyone! I’ve been a little bummed this week seeing all the “Back to School” sales and events.  Not that I don’t love a good sale I am just a little saddened by the fact that summer is winding down and I seriously feel like it hasn’t even started.  The good thing is it’s Friday and that means it is time for another week of Dose of Delight; a mini round-up of newly discovered and delightful things!

You are Loved Sign

If I had a penny for every bare wall in my house I’d be rich. Well, not really because there aren’t that many walls in my house to begin with but you get the point. I have ALOT of bare walls. I am always on the look out for that perfect piece of décor for my home and if it happens to be unique and handmade, well then all the better!  I am completely inspired by this “You are Loved” sign created by Laura over at the Corner House blog.  The wall decor is made out of wood fence boards and paint.  Here’s the only issue I see with this project;  knowing little ol’ indecisive me I’ll take FOREVER to figure out what saying I want to put on it.

How to Talk to Little Girls

There’s a great article called “How to Talk to Little Girls” by Lisa Bloom over at the Huffington Post. Lisa raises some good points on how our culture tends to use looks as an icebreaker when speaking with little girls.  Case in point; the other night we walked by my four-year-old neighbor’s lemonade stand and the first thing I noted to her was how cute her lemon adorned dress looked on her {I mean it was darling after all!} Perhaps, I should have complimented her entrepreneurship skills first. None the less, it’s a thought provoking article, so go check it out here!

Hope you have a delightful weekend!

The Makeup Junkie is back on Monday!

I loved that article on how to talk to little girls. It's like second nature to compliment them - they are always so cute! I've been trying that with Caroline & we've had some funny conversations about what she's reading :)

I like that You Are Loved sign! Unfortunately we don't have very many bare walls in our house - I always find something I want to hang up!

I'd love to hear from you!
