Modern DIY Sculptural Wind Chime

DIY sculptural wind chime by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of sugar and cloth

Patio season is upon us. Woo!! And that means it’s time to crawl out of Winter hibernation and set up our balconies + backyards for some outdoor R&R.  Just recently I, Erin, was at an outdoor wedding where the couple decorated the altar with a collection of wind chimes, which quietly chirped away in the background during the ceremony.  It was unique and charming, and inspired me to make some wind chimes for my own patio yard this year.

Little Sugar & Cloth: Gwen’s Newborn Photos

Gwen's newborn photos, Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth

How is my baby already four months old already?! Isn’t it crazy how quickly they change when they’re this young? I feel like sometimes I wake up in the morning to a totally different baby girl and it’s very bittersweet.

I love getting to see her personality shining through but I want time to stand still too! Jared and I were talking about how much she’s changed already as we were thumbing through the 5,000,000 photos that we have of her on our phones,

My Favorite Baby Products We Registered For by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth

If I’ve learned one thing from parenting in general, it’s that what works for one baby, doesn’t work for every baby. Like life, babies are like little boxes of crying, pooping, and laughing chocolate and that you never know what you’re going to get.

That said, there are few key things that we love and use all the time that you might love too! So I’m sharing my favorite baby products to register for in case you want to add some of them to your arsenal.
