Sewing Projects

 I've been meaning to do some sewing again,
and finding new patterns always makes me
itch to get going. 
The pattern above I found on Ebay,
I've already made a muslin,
now I just have to pick out the fabric I want to use
and start cutting!
The pattern below I found at the thrift,
would be so cute with some mod fabric!

 But first I decided to fix this vintage skirt
I found at the thrift some time ago.
It needs taking in and a zipper, and 
probably shortening!
Update coming soon!
Bye for now!

Signs of Spring

 Spring is finally here, 
and I know this because I'm seeing more of the bunnies!
And we have had our first sighting of Mr and Mrs Duck
who show up every year at this time.
 Cute couple don't you think?
Last week was kind of insane, 
with my girl being sick with a very bad stomach flu.
I'm so happy she's doing better now, 
I have a tendency to worry too much
and fear the worst,
and I'm thankful when the worst doesn't happen.
Bye for now!

Almost Wordless Wednesday

My dear daughter has been sick, poor thing,
so blogging is hard.
But we did get some cookies made before that.
Bye for now!

Flower Show part 2

 These first two shots my daughter took with her camera,
she is a great photographer! 
Me and hubby below.
 Then I took one of her.
 She also took this great shot of 
stained glass in one of the skyways.

 We were wondering around the skyways 
from building to building.
The ceiling here was so pretty!
 And this is a Wells Fargo Bank,
love this art deco interior!
 Later we went to Barnes and Noble,
the downtown one is our favorite!
Bye for now!

Macy's Flower Show




 I'm so happy we made it to the
 flower show at Macy's in downtown Minneapolis.
It was so nice to see and smell the
signs of spring!

 Tulips and daffodils!


 And these adorable little English Daisies
that look like mushrooms from a distance!

 They had great topiaries like this chess piece!

 A lots and lots of color!

They also had huge lanterns hanging over head!
Hope you enjoyed this shot of spring.
Bye for now!

New in My Shop

 I've been so inspired by spring lately,
and it shows in my news pins.
They would be perfect for spring jackets,
and Easter dresses!
Here are two new cute weather house pins,
 one in pink and yellow
and one in blue and yellow.
These are both in my shop now!
Hope you can check them out!
And don't forget to check out my Facebook page
bye for now!

What I Wore for the Flower Show

 The flower show at Macy's in downtown Minneapolis
is a big tradition for our family. 
We see the show, then eat at Leeann Chins,
then head to the Barnes and Noble 
for frapps and people watching.
I will post pix of the show tomorrow!
Here is a vintage maxi skirt found at the thrift
that I shortened.
I just never feel comfortable in a maxi skirt,
even though I love them on other people.
And the jacket I got for $1 at the thrift
because I had a $10 off coupon!
Jacket, skirt and blouse: thrift
Tee and tights: Target
Belt: Dots
Shoes: Dansko
Crochet necklace: made by me
Flower pins: vintage
Bye for now!
