Hello friends! It’s Friday and I’m linking up with Jeannett over at Life Rearranged to share cell phone pics from the last week {or two!}. Blog your cell phone pics and link up with us!The chair above is from an article in Anthology magazine. Isn’t it adorable? If I found a great, old chair with good upholstery, it would be so fun to paint the wood turquoise to give it more personality.

I snapped this picture while walking through the market in Khon Kaen, Thailand. I miss our friends so much!

Yum. Spring rolls at the mall in Thailand. And the sticky rice with mango? Loooove.

Our long flight home {30 hours of travel each way} included some very puffy clouds–and also about 5 movies, lots of snacks and very little sleep.

It was wonderful to be home and be with the boys again. My energy level was pretty low–so the first couple days included a lot of snuggling and laying around.

We were watching Peter Pan a few evenings ago, and David sat next to Matthias and put his hand on his leg. Their relationship is different than most brothers, but sometimes I see a real connection, and it makes my heart full.

One of my favorite chores is dishes. I love how I can take something messy and in 10 minutes make it sparkle.

Erika, one of our longest employees, and a friend, made these seriously cute cupcakes on Valentine’s day. Some had ‘XO’ and some said ‘love’ in cursive. Adorable!

Also on valentine’s day, I walked down an alley and saw chalk hearts on a brick wall–which made me smile.

The trees are starting to blossom. It’s early and we’ve had a very warm winter. I love the tiny pink flowers.

I think bath time is one of David’s favorite things to do. He laughs and splashes and goes crazy.

Do you instagram? This weekend take a pic of your favorite piece from Lisa Leonard Designs on instagram and be entered to win a $100 gift card. Make sure to use hashtag #mylisaleonard. So fun!

We are headed to Fresno to visit family and friends this weekend. I am hoping to get some good rest and put jet lag behind me. And next week is Blissdom! So I’ll be prepping for that as well. I’m bringing lots of fun, new things to the handmade market–so if you’re coming, please find me and say hi!

What are your plans for this weekend?

    Have a great trip to Fresno! This week’s lesson learned had to do with me turning into ogre-mom. Oh well, it happens to the best of us I guess. Here’s my Hello’s and Goodbye’s. Please tell me even you’ve been ogre-mom on occasion?

    I’m sad that this contest is only open to people with instagram. I have an android phone and it’s not available to me.

      hi Lisa- I really enjoy your designs and have quite a few of them. Please dont take this the wrong way but….. I do have to tell you something. Female (momma) deer do not have antlers! Only the males do.
      My huisband is a big hunter and I have learned alot about animals from him 😉 Maybe your sweet necklace could be a dad and child? Have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

  12. Obsessed with Instagram and actually just started following you {still learning the ropes}! Yay! Now that I am home, grabbing my heartstrings necklace and snapping a photo pronto!
    Love seeing little glimpses into other people’s lives and then using InstaFriday to explain it just a little {or in my case A LOT more – guess I am long winded}!
    Happy Friday!

    Lisa,

    I’ve been following your blog for a couple of years now and have loved reading about your life.

    It’s awesome that you just got to visit thailand, our family is moving there in a couple of weeks. AND we live in Fresno. Small world! Well, if you go to the Well – North campus this Sunday you will see us, come over and say hi!
