What I Wore


We had absolutely gorgeous weather this weekend, so I grabbed the chance to wear my newest dress from H&M! When I saw this blue and white gingham dress I just had to have it. And since the day was a bit chilly in the morning I layered it over a plain white tee.
Dress: H&M

What I Wore


 The weather on Easter weekend was very spring like with rain, sunshine and a quick thunderstorm. The mornings are still cold, so I had to combine a spring dress with tights and a cardigan.
Dress: H&M

Artwork Update


 Recently I joined a new challenge on Instagram called #the100dayproject, where you get to pick what your challenge is. So I picked 100 days of flowers (#100daysofflowersbyLaurie). I love flowers, but I feel I can always improve my technique. One of my favorite flowers id daffodils, so I combined them with my other favorite, cats!

 Dandilions  are another favorite so I thought I would work them into a surface pattern.


 Snowdrops in a terrarium.



 Cherry blossoms and a bird.


 Bunnies and tulips. The last two are on Society6 if you would like to find great cards and gifts for spring, Mother's Day and birthdays!

What I Wore


 It was just barely warm enough to go without tights on Saturday, so I wore my new skirt and sandals from Target. I wish I had gotten a better shot of the wedge heeled sandals, but here they are on Target's website. And here is the link to the skirt. The blouse is a vintage one I found last spring, but hadn't had a chance to wear yet.
Skirt, sandals and purse: Target
Blouse: vintage
Belt and jacket: thrifted

Artwork Update

 Lately I've been really keeping up with daily sketching and painting, so I have plenty to show you this week! Above is a painting I did for challenge called, "old style toys" and I chose bubble blowing. I love the spring feel to this, so I plan to put this in my Society6 shop soon. It would be great for Easter, Mothers Day or a birthday!


This grouping of lamps was very popular on Instagram and it was fun to do too.



 Naturally, when the challenge is "Pet", I chose to paint a cat!


 This challenge was for "sign", so I decided to try my hand at a vintage neon sign.


And lastly, for "sleeping" the first thing I thought of was, you guessed it, a sleeping cat! I'm so predictable!

What I Wore


The weather is really starting to feel like spring! It got up to the 60's on Saturday, so it was time to break out my jean jacket! I've been adding some patches as you can see below, that I found at H&M. I love how they looked!
I sure hope that the warm weather continues!
Skirt and patches: H&M
Top: F21
Tights and boots: Target
Denim jacket: thrifted







This doesn't happen often, but I got feline photobombed!
