aroma therapy

It is supposed to be 63 degrees out today. SIXTY-THREE!!!! Which means instead of staying inside and sewing (because it is not the weekend in this house!) in nice warm pajamas and slippers, I will be outside... washing my car!!! My poor Focus doesn't get enough attention.

The "heatwave" (this Floridian? still freakin' cold!) probably also means that I won't be wearing my favorite yellow and gray striped ruffle scarf. I sold one this week and I had just enough to make one more scarf. I've been contemplating listing the last one on my etsy, but I am kind of in love with it. I think I need to keep it for myself!!!

Since it feels a bit like Spring today, I have something new for you. I am a bit obsessed with Patty Young's Sanctuary Collection. So far, I have only ordered two shirtings that have been used for scarves but I am dying to get my hands on the rest of the collection. It is just beautiful and will definitely put you in the mood for some warmer (tropical) weather!!

Here you go:

And you can find the listing here!

Hope you all enjoy your abnormally warm winter days!

scissor runner

My daughter (3yo) didn't want to go to the park today. I've come to the conclusion that she either a) doesn't feel good or b) is always trying to prove me wrong. Probably the latter since she seems to be a-okay!

Since we were staying inside on this incredibly gorgeous Thursday afternoon, we decided to get a little crafty in the form of Valentine's Day. We cut dozens of paper hearts (from scrapbooking paper that I probably should have used by now for an actual SCRAPBOOK, but that can't possibly be at the top of my priority list) and strung ribbon through them to make garland for the fireplace and staircase. We also put some up on the doors around the house. It's very lovey-dovey in here now!! Haley LOVES them and will probably think I'm evil when it comes time to take them down (just like Christmas).

My favorites of them all are pictured below (on the fireplace) -

They match the colors of the living room perfectly.

I have a few things in the works for Miss Bessa that are going to be very exciting coming up! Can't wait to share all of it with you... but it has to wait!

Until then.
