You know-- I try and I try, but sometimes it seems that I just don't do any good in the world. Not any good at all!" #somuchgood #yearofavery #shereallytalkslikethis 5d

daniellebwilson After a few days wrangling these two at Legoland, this day was just what we needed. Taking trips alone with them can be tricky, but it's better than not going at all. You know? Plus I feel lucky that we have the freedom to leave town whenever we want! 1w

  •   daniellebwilson It wasn't hot but it was really nice and sunny. Avery got fully into the ocean. I managed to get a wicked sunburn even though I was pretty covered. 1w
  •   oxenoxen Oh man. Took nellie to the beach solo one day and got the worst burn of my life. Never trust a 2 year old to apply your sunscreen. Didn't think ahead or wear a shirt. Still a fun day though. 1w

daniellebwilson It's hard to believe this baby girl is almost 7! This bonnet pattern is almost that old too. It's available in my embarrassingly neglected Etsy shop. It's an oldie but goody. Link in profile. #easter #bonnet #pattern 4w

daniellebwilson Happy Spring! Boy oh boy I'm ready for some fresh newness. Trying to focus on pretty piles so as to not be overwhelmed by the surrounding chaos (literally & metaphorically). One thing at a time right? #welcomespring! #clichestackofbooks 4w
  •   anniekblake @simplyradiant Larry needs that gnomes book. 4w
  •   oxenoxen What's that fabric? Curtains? I just started reading a book called the act of tidyness. So far she says throw out everything that doesn't bring you joy. So I'm starting there :) let you know if it's any good. 4w
  •   momsstuffsalve That vase!!!! Also #yougotthis 4w
  •   daniellebwilson @oxenoxen oh it's canvas I painted and hung up to see if I want to paint my wall black. I don't. It going dark green. I read that book too! We'll sort of. I read the kindle 15 min summary of it. Haha. But I got the throw stuff away if it doesn't make you happy gist. And that you should not mate your socks but rather fold them together or they will be sad. 4w

daniellebwilson Authenticity // I've been thinking about this a lot lately-- what it means to me, how I can be more of it, how I'm too old to bother with anything else, how rare and special the people who possess it are and how I need to nurture and appreciate those relationships that are steady and true. // This is my friend Anne. I'm lucky to call her friend. She is authentic. She's also stylish, and a great writer. I'm so happy she is getting back into sharing her thoughts and ideas on her newly revamped blog. You can find her @annecropper. :@taylorcropper 1mon
  •   annecropper Oh my stars, Danielle! What an unexpected and loving post! I am so humbled by this because I think maintaining authenticity is one of the hardest challenges in the blog/creative sharing world because you follow so many talented people and think 'I should be more like her' or 'I should do more posts like that.' But it's really the sharing of what is truly representative of US that makes this whole process and community so rich and worthwhile. (Longest run on sentence of all time.) I love you!!!!! 1mon
  •   ldjhall4 I like both of you ladies. @daniellebwilson and @annecropper 1mon
  •   lorenbarrus I'm too old to bother with anything else as well. Also with shaving all that hair that grows out of my ears. Just too too old. Also I love Anne. 1mon
  •   annecropper @lorenbarrus and 1mon
  •   annecropper @momsstuffsalve right back atcha. 1mon

daniellebwilson Sick day. // After reading the reminders on my phone, my 6 year-old said indignantly, "Mom! You never remember to give me my vitamins. You know-- you're not being very responsible about my health!" #mouthsofbabes #yearofavery #morninghair 1mon
  •   kathrynbutler Also Avery quotes always brighten my day. 1mon
  •   stacyhartsew Ha! 1mon
  •   oxenoxen I think the clear solution is putting the reminder on Avery's iPad . 1mon
  •   daniellebwilson @oxenoxen good call. Except it's been restricted heavily b 1mon
  •   ringosgirl Lol oh Avery! I just love her!! I'm reading this to Ringo and we are cracking up! he says in response "I'll be better, no sugar...ever," (lol of course we were just dealing with a very opinionated 13yo a few minutes ago, so he's quite sarcastic tonight ) 1mon
  •   mama_longtalski Haha! She's the cutest 1mon
  •   daniellebwilson @ringosgirl your comment made me so happy! Thanks for that! 1mon

daniellebwilson It seems like a good day to share this 4th dress I made for @milk_magazine "Little Birds" editorial with @houselarsbuilt & @chauntevaughn. I painted 5 yards of 55" silk with different shades of green and blue dyes to create these color variations and depth. The incredibly striking Sydney (@jenyfurb) was perfect in this peacock look. I might have forgotten she was only 11 when I gave her a bare shoulder, but I was only thinking about the lines of the dress! But now I'm scheming ways to remake it into something for myself. : @chauntevaughn 1mon

daniellebwilson Happy Pie Day! (Pi Day?) This is one holiday I can really get behind, but we won't be having pie this year. We are trying to figure out some allergy stuff so it's easier not to, but you can bet I'll be sneaking peeks at all of your pies, and longingly remembering this one. #pieday #piday 1mon

daniellebwilson I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who took the time to offer kind words and support about this Little Birds Project for @milk_magazine. I know some of you do this kind of stuff-- or put yourselves out there all the time, but I was legitimately sick to my stomach with nervousness when the editorial was posted! Despite my irrational nerves, I love making things and it makes me so happy to share and contribute something beautiful into this creative community. So thanks for welcoming my work. With @houselarsbuilt and @chauntevaughn of course. This is exquisite Isabelle as our swan. Fun fact: I scrapped the original top for this look and made this one the morning of the shoot. It was a make it work moment! I know you're not supposed to post too much if you want to be good at IG, but I've never claimed to be good at it. So I'll probably keep posting. I'm excited to share some of the methods I used to make all these! Happy Friday! Now back to my laundry. 1mon

daniellebwilson I can't help myself. Here's another shot of a dress I made for @milk_magazine shoot with @chauntevaughn & @houselarsbuilt. This is @courtneysnowden own darling Blythe as our Gray Parrot. The editorial is called "Little Birds" and each dress is inspired by a bird. For this dress I dyed and ruffled 6 different cottons and silks. Photo by @chauntevaughn. 1mon

daniellebwilson I'm so excited to finally be able to share these dresses I made for a collaboration with @houselarsbuilt and @chauntevaughn for @milk_magazine. I have a new website in my profile with links to everything and more photos. Such a labor of love creating these, and a true joy to work with these women and their incredible teams! Can't wait to share more about the whole process! And thank you to our gorgeous model Swayzie King @jasonkiley! 1mon
