It must be spring! Yesterday I was absolutely ruthless with a big old fashioned closet cleanout. I’m down to the bare essentials now. I want to start curating & sewing some classic pieces to really up the ante on my wardrobe situation. Colette has been doing a series on the blog called wardrobe architect. Where itContinue reading “Wardrobe Inspiration: Skirts & Tops”
Ever since Polaroid stopped making 600 film, I’ve been sad. I mean yes, I’m aware the impossible project is a thing. Really though, 600 film was almost price prohibitive when it only cost a dollar a picture, no way can I justify two or three for regular use. But the fuji instax mini saves theContinue reading “Instax Mini 8 Review”
So one of mine and Brian’s New Years goals is to do new things we haven’t done (or not in a long time) at least twice a month. I’m going to blog about a few of them. I know that when your in a long term relationship it can be hard to come up withContinue reading “Date Night : Hockey Game & New Sofa”

Well after having like a million pink paint swatches up on the wall for oh all of ten or so months, I decided it just wasn’t working. So we went in an entirelyContinue reading “Oh Starry Sky”
Sorry for the radio silence. I’ve been fitting a few last minute summer trips into my schedule and the blog has definitely suffered. Sorry, not sorry though. I’ve been having a blast. But I’ll be back to my regularly blog fodder soon! I have my sew bossy dress to sew after all!
Things were feeling a bit stale over her design wise. I decided to freshen up the look a bit! It’s so much cleaner, love it!
The internet is amazing. I’ve known for awhile that my Grandfather was interviewed in a LIFE magazine. It was the “one with Ms. Monroe on the cover”, which didn’t really help narrow it down. I did try to find it if I was at antique mall or somewhere else that sold old LIFE magazines. IContinue reading “A Little Family History”
This was a pretty awesomely simple sew! There’s no zippers or others closures, it’s an over the head kind of affair. The shape is simple a fairly loose. I was afraid it would swallow me up, and look too mumu-ish. I don’t think that’s the case though. It’s really super comfy as well, which makesContinue reading “Hazel complete!”
