Right Now, I'm Loving...

Dried fig slices, made by my friend's mom.

Stamps! Lots and lots of them, purchased at a flea market in New Braunfels.

This skirt, particularly on this gal.


Ashley Goldberg prints.




Also...

  • (Random) This '90's flashback.
  • The weather! Which has been so, so nice the past couple days...such a welcome reprieve from the heat.

This Moment (XV)

This week's "moment", inspired by Soule Mama. In her words,
"{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember."

A Rad(ish) Bag

I went to a fun little applique/tote-making class last Sunday, and here is the resulting bag.



The hand embroidery on the applique was actually not part of the plan, but my sewing machine was acting up at that point (turns out it was probably my fault), so I just started stitching by hand instead, with embroidery thread. My mom actually did the blanket stitch around the radish, as I needed a little instruction with that particular stitch. Everything came together pretty well—I'm so glad I now know how to do a lined tote (thanks Belle)!

These Past Few Weeks, I've Been Loving...

Playing a little catch-up here, on my (not so) weekly "loving" posts....looks like I may need to re-think the whole weekly basis thing! But anyway, some things I've been loving lately...

two super cute bags (courtesy of Belle and Burger and sent off last week to two special young ladies)


vintage phonics cards (a garage sale find)

fresh-squeezed orange juice and fresh-off-the-farm cream, made into ice cream (just the OJ, cream, sugar, and that's it! Yum!)

and pink pearl apples (I'd never seen such a thing!).
