jeanne and the moon.

and speaking of sewing...
i found this lady's sewing projects incredibly inspirational.
unfortunately its all in french, no tutorials, and the books 
are on french amazon, but it is tempting to order one...
i think i still know enough french, with pattern perhaps?

sew lately.

up to any fun sewing projects lately? 
this spring throw was relatively easy...
a few smoothing out difficulties but still happy.
and ps. if you live in phx, sas is full of beautiful thick velvet
ribbon trims perfect for this project. 

 i also picked up some skirt making materials
for post baby wear in a fun stripe and floral. 
for some fun skirt tutorials see here and here.

and then i also realized the blanket was 
also a pretty trusty backdrop for photos.

that time again.

to sit by the pool, sip on popsicles, and soak up the warmth.

some fun ideas for warm weather:
something to sip....
a new fun salad to munch on...
and perhaps a craft to make with the kids...
