The beauty of pink flowers...


I do love pretty flowers, especially pink ones. My husband brought me these just because. Aren’t they lovely?


Wishing all of you a lovely day...

More sewing projects...



As I mentioned earlier, I have been taking sewing classes to learn to sew. Our latest projects were a tote bag and a pair of pajama bottoms. I’m happy to say both of mine turned out really cute. The tote, above, has a pretty interior (impossible to take photos of), with a white and gray polka dot lining and pockets made out of the same Parisian fabric used on the outside.



The pajama bottoms turned out a bit large, but cute nonetheless. The pocket on the back even lined up nicely. All in all, I am learning a lot and really enjoying it.
Wishing all of you a lovely day...

A day for love...


Today is a day for love. I am in California for a wedding today between two lovely people. What’s more appropriate to celebrate that than a gorgeous red rose?
Wishing all of you a day of love...

Room inspiration...


Isn’t this room lovely? I adore the pink chairs in front of the fireplace and the pink wallpaper is divine. Just a bit of inspiration for your week.

The beauty of learning to sew...



Learning to sew has been one of those things on my to-do list for quite awhile now. It took me more than a year to get into a class, such is the waiting list where I live. But I finally did and I am loving it.
Our first project was to sew a pair of placemats and a pair of napkins. You can see mine here. While there are plenty of things wrong with them, they turned out pretty well for being the first things I have ever sewn, don’t you think? We have been working on other projects, too; I’ll show you those in another post.


Wishing all of you a lovely day...
