paris bleus

18 Aug

I am managing my friend’s Etsy shop during a busy time for her and these three pendants she made sort of struck me that I had to put them in a combo offering.  I think they would be just lovely layered as necklaces or even as charms on a bracelet.

I am the ultimate Francophile but seeing this pretty trio made me a little misty for a stroll through les Tuilleries.  I need to get to France…bad!

The dish comes from here.  Merci!


yarn over

28 Jul

maybe you recall I mentioned something about crochet…and me trying to learn.  It still is a work in progress…most of the time I do not know where I’m going with this…like my life!     But, I’ll keep moving forward and yarn over as with everything.  (especially as I committed and bought 8 skeins of Lion Brand Cupcake yarn)

hi ho

12 Jul

…off to work I go!  At least that is what it has felt like for the last two weeks.  I have worked everyday without exception and when I go home I work more.  The realities of owning your own business *pinches self*

Here is what I did squeeze out for myself in my minuscule personal time:

This adorable Market Bag from Posie Gets Cozy.  It’s my first real attempt at sewing anything…let alone from a pattern.  I hand cross stitched the initial on the front pocket.  C was very impressed and immediately brought it to one of our friends that sews professionally and she laughed at it…laughed.  I still love it…she did think my cross stitch was machined…so, at least I can do that respectfully!

Our little nestlings left the nest yesterday.  That was quick…I was hoping we could enjoy them a little longer.  At least the mail lady will be pleased that mama won’t screech at her delivering the mail any longer.

And on my day off today (working I tell you!)…this is what I’ve been doing.  Loading all these neat mosaics my friend does and sells at the shop on our main website.  Have you seen it yet?  You should, we are really the most fantastic store you’ve never heard about…I swear, no bias in that statement…whatsoever!  Har har.

something’s getting done…finally.  More later.

le weekend

3 Jul

I saw this sexy little felt pillow in my inbox days ago and I want it…bad.  I think I may have just enough felt in pink and I’d like to make it my weekend project.

It doesn’t seem too hard…might be the perfect weekend project for the vegetarian sitting out everyone’s Fourth of July BBQ!  Here’s the how-to link with all the deets.

This project is featured from a great book with even more easy projects:  Felt Furnishings: 25 Accessories for Contemporary Homes
