I have noticed when shopping- little, fun, printed skirts are so in this spring. So I decided to sew some. 🙂 I have been making them as fast as I can. If you use a coupon at Joanns, it only takes a half yard to make a skirt and so you can pick out pretty hip fabrics and make a whole skirt for $3-4 a pop.
Trimming them and lining with pretty trim (especially if it`s vintage) is the most fun part of all.
Elle pretend reading to a few little friends.
Another skirt I made, for Elle. This fabric I had bought to make a pillow for the living room. Yeah, the print was way too gaudy for my living room… so I made a fetching skirt for a 4 year old.
Flowers from my dear husband.
Fun making healthy cookies for my girls. My husband thinks my healthy cookies are for the birds. Literally.
This is a special plate from my aunt Ada, it was one of the things she gave me on my birthday. Sadly, the other day it shattered when it got hot on my gas burner. I was happy I had a picture of it anyway.
Another skirt I made for Elle. Can you tell I was channeling/watching Sound of Music when I made this one? It`s a little old school, maybe a little too old school, I haven`t fully decided yet.
I wish I had pictures of more of the skirts- maybe later.
Laila loves her blonde hair.
The other day I heard her tell her dolls,
“They LOVE me so much. They love me because of my blonde hair…”
And if we ever see anyone with hair the color of hers,
“Look. She has BLONDE HAIR, like me.”
G and I went on a date the other night. I had out outfits laid out ahead of time. Later, tssk, we caught them man-handling each other.
I’m working on a post about the small details in decor. Maybe I’ll post it later today. Who really knows?
