When the friend was going to come for lunch last week I bought two little pots of mums. They look so cute in the basket that used to hold all my junk in the bathroom. It still has toothpaste marks on it.
Guess what? I finally moved my sewing! I had fun putting up old Susan Branch calendar pages!
Here's another wonky floor. The young wife who lived in this house just before us was a hair dresser. She operated out of her home and this square in the basement was where she had her sink and all the other hairdresser-ish stuff. I didn't want to be dropping pins on the carpet, so it's just right for my sewing (I have not actually sewn down there yet). I am waiting for the mood to strike and then I shall sew like a whirlwind because the patterns are easy peasy and I'm actually a pretty good seamstress. Just saying.
Here's my old red tablecloth. I have had it for absolutely AGES.
It's perfect for girlie girls like the adorable sweetie pies pictured below.
This morning I drew some birds in my nature journal. MK made me laugh when she said in an email, "How many leaves and pumpkins can one paint?" TRUE! I thought you might like to see my eraser. It smells so school-y.
This morning I was sitting in my study/office that is more spacious now that the sewing is gone but it still needs some sorting. I had this nice warm rice bag on my lap and I thought it looked pretty next to my nightie. I've decided that flannel nightgowns are a good thing and I'm going to sew some flannel pajamas and nighties because there are such cute flannel prints at the fabric store.
Here are some nature journal posts:
