Crush of the Week

Happy Friday! Thank you all for your sweet birthday wishes yesterday. I had a lovely day and it was fun getting messages from all of you. :) It’s time for our regular Friday Feature, the Crush of the week. If you missed last week’s feature, it was the sweet blog,…

Ribbon Flower T-Shirt

I was at Target last week and snapped this photo with my handy dandy phone spy camera. Cute huh? I thought so too. I also thought I could make it just as cute. And pinker. Because, if you can, why wouldn’t you? :) Here’s mine: (I’m finding I’m fairly self-conscious…

Polkadot Potholder

Here is the second portion of the Polkadots, Pompoms and Potholder post. Whew. That’s a lot of “p”s. If you like to see the tutorial for the Apron, click here. So on to the potholder tutorial. Sorry about the lack of photos in these steps. I finished this up last…

Polkadots, Pompoms, and a Potholder. Oh my.

I’ve been lovin the little half aprons they have at Anthropologie. Check this one out, and this one. Don’t you love the scallops? Here’s my version, along with my matchy matchy potholder: (you can’t tell from this picture but the apron has a white waistband) What do you think? I’m…

Bead and Bow Necklace

In your bloggy travels have you run across Disney and her fabulous blog Ruffles and Stuff? If not, I highly recommend spending some time looking through her site. I totally want to be her when I grow up. Oh wait – too late for that. I ‘m way older than…

Bon Appetit! Embroidered Dishtowel

Have you looked at the dishtowels at Anthropologie? They’re fairly yummy. Sweet little birds and flowers embroidered on cute patterned dishtowels, all for the low low prices of $18 – $24. hmmm. maybe not. So .  .  what to do? Make my own! :) What do you think? I looove…

A Good Reminder

This week we had a nice short little California shower (the best kind of shower – one that doesn’t last very long haha), so I broke out the camera to take some shots of the pretty rain-soaked flowers. I snapped a shot of this little sweetie: Isn’t she pretty? It…

Easy Peachy Cinnamon Rolls

My good friend Becky (her family is visiting for the week :)) and I made Easy Peachy Cinammon Rolls for breakfast. We wanted to try and find a cinnamon roll recipe that wouldn’t take forever in the morning, so we decided to try something with canned biscuits. They turned out…

My First Post!

Well, I’m very excited, my first post. I have been soo inspired by all the creative things people come up with. So I thought I’d start my blog off with some photos of things I’ve made, along with the links to the blogs if I can find them. I’m looking…
