Sometimes you get lucky

I was fully prepared to photograph the gorgeous bouquet of vintage millinery flowers I bought at a yard sale this morning, thinking they were a lucky score. What was really lucky was that Jack wanted to "smell da flowers".
How gorgeous are these photos of my little redheaded boy?

I love that he smells things with his lips instead of his nose right now. He came up to me this morning and put his lips on my arm. When I asked what he was doing he replied, "Smelling you mama." Awwww, insert melting mama here.
I did make one of the June 2007 Martha Stewart Living pillowcase totes this week also. Except, I didn't use a pillowcase, I used a Simply Shabby Chic curtain panel and cut it into the shape of a pillowcase and went from there. It came together in about 25 minutes, and it really is cute and easy.

And I owe a big thank you to Christy for mentioning my blog on Sew Mama Sew . When I received the e-mail from Beth this morning to let me know my blog was mentioned there that totally rocked my world!

  12. I have been eyeing that purse pattern in Living too! It looks so easy and summery. What a great idea to use fabric instead of a pillow case!

  13. I don't think that you can miss with posting a photo of something you thrifted with that lovely red-headed boy of yours!

    I love the bag. I think that Madeline might like one of those ... the instructions aren't online, are they?

    I just got my copy of MSL yesterday and haven't gotten to enjoy it much yet. Can't wait to drop DS off at school on Monday....I think I have a date with MSL and a pillowcase!

    And you're welcome for the mention. I really do like reading your blog. :)

  23. You are my hero for putting the bag together in less than a half hour! I made one yesterday (my FIRST real sewing project!) and it took me all day--but mostly because I had no clue what I was doing and had to keep undoing my mistakes--from not having the machine threaded correctly, breaking the needle once and having to go buy more. Stuff like that. :)

    I think I'll try to make another one and see how fast I can do it now that I've learned a few things.
