Weekend Perk-Me-Up

My sister is younger than me, smarter than me, has fewer children, and is thusly far more conscious creative than I am.  Consequently she finds little gems like these, and then I steal share them.  Thanks, Sis!

Shoe Candy

On the up side, they would go with everything.

These however... might only wear with jeans.  Or not.

These are for when you might want to channel your inner candlestick.

Or, for your urban elf self...

But it's these ones that I wish would come and live in my closet, and on my feet this summer:

Yes please!

However the likely scenario would involve me, with incredibly stylish feet, rushed to the ER after some sort of perilous fall.

These are the more likely scenario, and I love them.

I really, really love them.

You can see more of the awe-inspiring Jeffrey Campbell here.

Funk Folly

Lately every project I've started in the last two weeks has been foiled in some way - it's been quirky!  It started with my "sewing time" babysitter going on vacation - how dare she! ;)  Then, a missing pattern piece, fabric too short by 1/4 yard, no thread in the right (or coordinating) colour, lack of trim to make up a birthday pattern...  And then, when I wore my one finished item on Mother's Day, we were so busy we didn't snap a single photo!  It seems I've picked all the wrong projects to get much done!

No yellow or gray thread.  Fabric is cut though!

So for all the work I've done ironing and tracing pattern pieces, sizing, prepping - I have nothing to show for it. Any suggestions for some instant gratification?

Flu Folly, and Onesie Love

Sorry I have been gone a while - the whole family came down with the stomach flu - again!  From what I hear this has been a pretty common occurrence amongst other young families too.   If that's you, you have my condolences.

Here is a treasure I found for you.  I was going to make it up for the hubby, but he wasn't so keen.

But what's not to love about a men's onsesie?
