Little Thrills (Ironing Board Cover)

Hi everyone!  Did you have a good weekend?  I got to spend time with just me and my favorite little guy since my husband was out of town.  It was awesome!  He’s at that absolutely DELIGHTFUL age right now where we talk and play and I just enjoy him so much!

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know that “little thrills” are small, inexpensive items in our lives that just make us happy.  My little thrill today comes in the form of an ironing board cover- who knew they could be so cute?!  

I’ve been keeping an eye out at all the regular retail shops, but couldn’t find one I really liked.  So I did a google search and found an adorable etsy shop called City Chic Country Mouse that makes them.

I ordered the aqua and coral floral cover below ($24). Isn’t it darling?!

And look, she even makes a coordinating apron with polka dots.  

Let's be friends!

Yep, an ironing board cover is my latest little thrill!  Is it silly that I hated ironing before because our old cover was so icky, but now, I’m happy to pull out the ironing board??

    Little thrills is all that matters! And this cover is just so pretty, I wouldn't mind getting it myself if it helps me tackle my mountain of clothes to iron!
    PS. Your little guy is SO CUTE! 🙂

    So adorable! Thanks for the tip on where to get cute ironing board covers. I'm not a fan of ironing either, and I'm not sure that a cover could fix that… unless of course the cover also came with a bottle of red wine 😉

    That is so darling. . . but that James. Ugh. He is precious. I think I may have to treat myself to a new ironing board. We are all about the little things over here as well.

    Hey, it's really cute! So, you have to be able to appreciate and find joy in the small stuff. Even an ironing board cover.

    That first picture is so precious…such the rockstar!!! Love the ironing board cover. We were in your neck of the woods this past weekend for Parent's Weekend. We had a great time despite Baylor's loss to TCU! UGH!!

    James is so adorable! What a cutie in that hat! I bet you did have a fun weekend with him. Love your new ironing board cover. I'm all about the little things, too. They're the best. Hope you have a great week Megan.

    I think you should totally 1950's-housewife-it-up and get the apron to wear while you're ironing 😉

    p.s. Just wanted to be sure you got my note last night with the new recipe…let me know if not and I can re-send.

    Please tell us about your framed buttons! Did you make it? Love it and James is adorable!

    Well, really, who wouldn't want to hang out with that cutie!

    Cute, cute, cute! I'm for anything that makes ironing more fun or at least less awful…! I would opt for the apron, too. I adore aprons!

    I was just thinking our ironing board cover needed to be replaced! Thanks!!!
