I know I am posting twice in one day! I found some time today to take pics of a few skirts that I have just added to my etsy shop as well as some new clips! I will hopefulluy be updating that a little more often! :)

What a weekend....

Wow we had an amazing weekend... some beautiful weather and one BIG scare! The storm that went thru Minnesota ect. just missed us! The tornado sirens went off and I have to tell you I am scared to death of storms.. so that made for a very interesting weekend! Luckily we were fine, just some heavy rains and scary lightning and thunder!
Are weekend was spent with my inlaws and the kids had soooo much fun, playing, fishing, swimming ect. We all came home with lil' colds and sore throats but are in the mend! I hope you all had a safe and happy weekend!
I stopped at a antique store that I really like an got some amazing finds I will share those later! ;)

I love spring!

Every spring I am reminded of how much I love it! Look at the beautiful trees right in my back yard! We have one in the front that blooms in fuscia colors as well in the fall! That is one of the biggest reasons we bought our house. We are lucky to live in the city and have so many beautiful mature trees on our lot!

Have a great weekend!

*Love* * Earth * *Be Free* ....

Here is the little project I have been working on. I have been collecting vintage frames,vintage images and the last but not least was the incredible paper that I found at Anthologie a new *handmade* store in Madison. I love them . I just painted my bathroom and we have a bit of a vintage inspired look with birds so I am thinking I will have to make one up for me! I really love how painting the frames gave them a new look!

I am taking the week to get reorganized, cleaning my sewing room, washing up new fabrics! I have soooo many new ideas brewing.. stay tuned! :)
