danamadeit I dyed one egg and the kids did the rest (and Clara took a nap. Yay!) #happyholigram 1d
  •   1sassyhousewife I made exactly one egg and when the kids ran out they re-dyed mine. :/ 1d
  •   keytopictures Oooh! So pretty! 1d
  •   sarajonespaske I made two. The kids thought my half and half with a stripe around the middle eggs were amazing. More like too lazy to make sure the two colors didn't overlap. They each begged to keep one, and they also want to save them forever :) #stinkyfridgeinmyfuture 1d
  •   sachiaw I love the colors of this fancy schmamcy ombré egg. 1d
  •   karihobson_ I tried doing that today, but it did NOT work out! 1d
  •   danamadeit Hahaha I love your girls...stinky fridge and all @sarajonespaske 1d
  •   nicole_elsabags Pretty 1d
  •   norcalval And it's such a pretty egg... :) 16h

danamadeit Lucy and I spied these on the side of the road and had to make an iPhone stop. #Poppies! #poppieswillputthemtosleep #texas #spring #texasforever 1w
  •   danamadeit Haha yes! Same @browniefam5 1w
  •   1onnbar Isn't there a poppy festival in Georgetown sometime soon? I love the wild flowers that just spring up on the sides if the roads here in Texas. 1w
  •   maresevanderzant What a great pic! 1w
  •   sweetunwrappinglife This is so beautiful! 1w
  •   jennaloudesigns Giving me spring fever for sure 1w
  •   mscott07 Where was this? 6d
  •   danamadeit It's on the road that takes you to San Gabriel Park… when you're on Austin Ave, when you turn at the Papa John's and you sort of go down into the street with some houses… It's one of those houses and the poppies are in their front yard. I asked the homeowner if I could take photos and he was really nice. It's such a beautiful patch of flowers! @mscott07 @brandilynferguson 6d
  •   stephmonroe I love stopping to smell (or dance among) the flowers! 4d

danamadeit Thank you for color input on the front porch furniture the other day! I love your ideas about blue....esp navy blue. And now I need help picking oilcloth for the kitchen chairs! Head over to MADE to see all the choices and to weigh-in. It's clear so far that sunflowers are losing....even though they feel like a modern take on the kitchy floral, to me. So this is why your input is helpful! Thank you danamadeit.com #lookoutlane 1w
  •   ashleyrufty Yellow plaid 1w
  •   michelledupuis Who wants to recover chairs in fabric they don't love just because it needs to be done? Go with the one that makes you happy! It will make a tedious job go faster...and I'm sure you'll make them look fabulous! 1w
  •   aperpil Little yellow stripes 1w
  •   deliaespinosa Agree with michelle...use the flowers cayse theu will make you happy!!!!! Thats the unic point!!!! 1w
  •   sarahvsbusybugs I love the sunflowers, I say go for it. Or mix the sunflowers and the cornflower yellow. 1w
  •   hsacam @danamadeit you could always mix them? Maybe sunflowers on back panel and stripes on side and front or vice versa? Can't wait to see what you choose! Go with your gut and pick whatever makes YOU smile the most! 1w
  •   halogenape Use the sunflowers! All of the other choices are boring in comparison! They are perfect. 1w
  •   analaragonzalez I love the stripes. Kisses from Spain. 1w

danamadeit Here's a slice of Texas life for you. This is what it looks like in April driving down the freeway, city streets, neighborhoods, to school....the Bluebonnets are seriously everywhere! It's a sea of periwinkle blue and just so gorgeous! Sorry I don't have a fun Texas song playing, like Lyle Lovett's "Abilene"....instead you get background noises from Rapunzel. For any Austin locals, this is on the 130 toll road just before the airport. I've never seen hills so packed!...I wanted to scoop them up like candy. #texas #bluebonnets #texasbluebonnets #texasforever #austin 2w

danamadeit And this is the front porch furniture I bought at the antique shop also, which I love! And it fits so perfectly in this space!....but it needs to be painted. The door is green, so....orangey/red like the flower vase? Or yellow like the basket? Or something else?? #lookoutlane 2w

danamadeit Whenever Owen has free time at school he loves to draw from the "learn to draw" books. And the pictures he brings home are pretty good! ...so I asked if he was tracing the pictures and he said no that he just looks at it and tries to draw it the same. So today he showed me the book at school of this muscle man and I love it! I actually like his version better!...with the angry eyebrows....and battle with Luke...and the tiny mouse on the ground saying "scweek". And I'll pretend I didn't hear him whisper to Lucy, "see that brown stuff? He's farting". Ugh. Boy life has begun. #owenwankenobi 2w
  •   laurapwood Awesome! Farts out of his armpits, too!?! 2w
  •   kpwine22 He's way talented! Takes after his mama!:) 2w
  •   christieblair1 Haha the farting part is hilarious! :) 2w
  •   mdbug This made me chuckle- thanks for sharing! 2w
  •   skippee Lol~ his drawing is awesome! 2w
  •   karissmith This is the best. Quite a good little drawer! 2w
  •   ojnopulp Hahaha yesss the story behind it! (Love how the 'brown stuff' is coming out of his pits too hahaha) 2w
  •   deliacreates Hahaha. Boys. 1w

danamadeit This is the moment I've been waiting for since the first day we decided to build a home! A crackling fire! I said to Casey in our first design meeting, I really want a fireplace...a fireplace that burns real wood. And everyone in the room thought I was crazy. "Oh you don't want that mess. You want gas logs." But I knew from childhood how much I loved a real fire burning in the house. So we both compromised and got one that runs on wood or gas. And today we fired it up!....with wood. Mmmm. It was nice of the flames to match our decor #lookoutlane 2w
  •   ojnopulp Soooo good!! And so pretty! We lovvve our real wood burning fireplace!! Well it's actually supposed to be a coal burning stove but we use it with wood :) (can't stay in 1911 forever haha) 2w
  •   mrsmann yes!! the best! 2w
  •   paulalaird We have a gas or wood fireplace and I love it! Yours is beautiful! 2w
  •   marksuman I wish our fireplace burned wood. 2w
  •   kammoz Good win on that fight 2w
  •   atxlisap Love this. And I loved your updated house blog! You built a beautiful home! Can't wait for your next blogs. 2w
  •   chrisallowitz Tots cute, Eden 2w
  •   gussied We use real logs too! I grew up with gas, but real wood is so much better! 2w

danamadeit A thunderstorm just blew through and washed away a truckload of dirt from our newly prepped landscaping. Boo. But on the bright side Clara's little head frames perfectly with our kitchen faucet. #lookoutlane 2w

danamadeit When visitors come to town it's only proper to take them to Rudy's....and Grandma and Grandpa Willard are here from Utah....and yesterday was his 70th birthday....so BBQ and creamed corn it was! #texas #bbq #rudys #austin 2w
  •   danamadeit Yea they moved to Farmington @erikisakson 2w
  •   danamadeit Casey loves salt lick. And I think it's good but I like the style of Rudy's so much more....casual, pick and choose, kid friendly picnic tables @karihobson_ 2w
  •   dianeherbert Happy birthday Parry! 2w
  •   vonfrinkenhagentheshop @karihobson_ @danamadeit This native Texan and BBQ disliker (yes, you read that right), loves Salt Lick because of the sauce. The only place I have been where BBQ sauce doesn't taste like BBQ sauce! Which is the part of BBQ I don't like. I'm sure I should be extradited from Texas or something. 2w
  •   marksuman Yay Rudy's. I've been to Austin three times. And I've been to Rudy's three times. Coincidence? Noooope! 2w
  •   leafytreetop I love Rudy's. One of Texas's little wonders. 2w
  •   danamadeit I hope you're not sick of it 😎 @marksuman 2w

danamadeit There's a new house post on MADE! talking all about the tile in our house...like the green Energy shower in the Master bath. It makes me smile every day. So come check out the rest of the rooms and get the details on our faux wood tile floors...because I swore I'd never have tile floors, and yet I love them danamadeit.com #lookoutlane 2w

danamadeit ....and for some reason the low budg menu design makes the food taste better. Of course the artist in me wants to repaint and make it look nice but that would ruin the charm. #dallas #texas #tacos 2w
