Freezing Time And Putting It On Display

I cleaned out Leyna’s closet last week in an effort to figure out what I do and don’t have for the next baby. As I pulled out little storage boxes and bags overflowing with tiny onesies, I began finding artifacts that lead me through wormholes, to little glimpses of what it was like to have a newborn baby Kendall or Leyna. It’s strange how a tiny t-shirt with snaps in the crotch can do that.

One of my favorite onesies from Kendall’s infancy had a tear where the snaps should go. I was sad I couldn’t hold onto it for the next baby, and I couldn’t bring myself to throw it in the trash.

So I cut out the front, and I framed it.

And then I got my inspiration for this month’s Decor & Cool Spaces post on the Red Barn Blog. Head on over there to check it out.
