{Amy Butler love}

Happy (freezing cold, gray skies) Sunday to you:)
I am sitting here enjoying a simple breakfast of oatmeal with blackberries, cinnamon and hazelnuts and a nice hot cup of joe!
What are you up to this Sunday morning?!?!?

Spring is now less than 50 days away!!!
In anticipation of Spring, I decided to treat myself to a little pot of daffodils and they definitely make me soooo happy~
Their blossoms are just so cute and happy!

Now...on to
Amy Butler....
you must know by now how much I love her!!
Just check out her styling....
Vintage feeling...but still super simple.Plus....I know you can probably figure that I also LOVE the colors in her fabrics!! So charming...

Now I wish I were a much better sewer....because this is what I'd make~

Love that shirt!
Or I could make an apron....but who am I kidding...I doubt I would ever actually use it!
Here's my take on Amy Butler styling......
{wish I would have picked up the cord underneath the buffet...but owell}

That is just a piece of fabric that I tied on myself this morning!! But I am going to make that dress out of it.....as soon as I get up the nerve to try:) I usually stick to pillows...but I am determined to try:)

Ok...NOW...I am getting ready to break out my sewing machine! So stay tuned b/c I have a lot of projects up my sleeve!!!!!!!

Do you sew?!?!?!?
If you do.....could you give me few pointers on how to sew a dress without a pattern?!?!?

  1. Pretty creative staging there with that fabulous dress, that's not even a dress (yet)! Sewing on buttons is pretty much all the sewing I do! I sometimes wish I had a sewing machine though..., to make pillows.

    Happy Sunday.

  2. I like the way you combine photographs with narrative. I like your photos, the subtlety of your colors. I haven't visited in a while, it was nice to come back.

  3. I just saw the daffodils and have to say I bought myself a mini pot of daffodils two weeks ago to remind me that spring is coming! Just gotta press the follow button after this post :-)

  4. Look at you...cute as a button.

    sewing is like driving...stay between the lines. As far as creating a pattern...just make a sack with two seams up the side...then play with it...nip it in where you need to.

    eh....don't listen to me.

  5. Maya....thanks!! I always appreciate your positive comments:)Pillows are super easy to make!!! If you ever want to know how...let me know~

    Last Place Finisher....thanks! Glad you came by to say "hello."

    S Enman....yes...you should go buy yourself a pot of daffodils!! I promise they'll make you happy:)

    Lime in the Coconut..awww..
    It's the staying between the lines that I have trouble with:) But I am determined to give it a whirl! Thanks for the advice~

  6. Hello friend
