Jacob Says:


Mama, I want you to make me a treehouse!
Me: Ok, how?
Jacob: With wood, an glue and pancakes!

At the Sonic Drive-thru:
Me: Jacob, do you want a red, or blue or orange slushie?
Jacob: I want a watermelon sh-lu-shee.

Jacob: I'm a genius!

Yes, indeed, baby boy. You are.

Tea Time

The other day, I found a set of plain white dish towels at Ross. I have a strong aversion to microterry towels as I hate the way the fabric catches on my dry skin. So I loved these because they are all cotton!

But I bought them for the fact that I could spruce them up! And now, they are so cute and I am afraid to actually USE them. Because they might get dirty! Or stained!

Hopefully, I can find a couple more sets at Ross to make even more dish towels I can't use!

Check, Please!

I added a few more to my Etsy store today!

I could pop these out like crazy if I could just sit down and sew for a bit! I'm either too busy, too tired or just uninspired to make lately. I need to carve out some time to be creative and play with all my fabrics.

I might have to steal this one for myself, as I am in love with the Heirloom colorway in Amber. Someday, I'll show you the apron I made a month ago with the same fabric. SO CUTE!

Spring into Fall

The little seedling flowers I planted earlier this year are in bloom at the moment. The marigolds have bloomed the most year year, with the pansies and petunias coming in second. The snapdragons never bloomed but at least they are a nice green!

Last weekend, my mom, Jacob and I all got pedicures. I choose the least appropriate color in the salon, but it's Muppet themed so that makes me happy. Fresh Frog of Belair. Kermit would approve.

I'm hoping the mums survive the winter, although I am hoping even more so that I have a new place to live next summer. The times, they are a'changing!
