bought a dress for $4 at the thrift store
and made it into a simple skirt.
perfect for summer, light & airy.
i should have taken a before picture,
like melissa from isly does.
she's so cute.

i have so much fabric and a lot of vintage dresses
that i want to refashion, and i think this summer
might be the time to do it!
i have also been going crazy making jewelry
and stalking supplies at stores & online.
i hope i can fit these fun things into my schedule!

maybe if i leave my craft stuff all over the living room, i will use it more often.

introducing jill's amazing baby, lola dee.
isn't she so perfect???
i just had to make lola a headband for being so cute.
she wanted something nautically themed,
so this is what we came up with...

lunch with the ladies.

i was really proud of myself for bringing my camera this day,
since i seem to rarely bring it out anymore just for fun.
that makes me sad. i am going to try to remember it more.

please please please try SUTHA THAI.
it is about 5 minutes away from where we live.
here is the address:
1161 irvine blvd., tustin ca 92780
and don't judge it based on the fact that it's
the tiniest restaurant you've ever been inside!

i am hoping we can go tonight for dinner!

jill, so cute...

sarah, adorable...

and us.


pad thai of course.

orange chicken. forgive us for ordering it at a thai restaurant, it just always seems to hit the spot.

seriously, can you believe how much MANGO they gave us? and how cute they made it???

fabric baskets.

saw these today from purl bee (via cut out + keep) and i think i need to make some!

they would be perfect for storing crafty stuff like fabrics, scraps, ribbons & trims, etc.

here is the tutorial. so cute!

summer picnic with sarah & ben.

awhile back i did a photo shoot with sarah & ben
and i knew it would turn out great because they have awesome style.
we brought a bunch of cool props and they had amazing outfits.
and i couldn't be happier with what we got that day!

watch their sweet slideshow or go to my photography site to see more images.

happy friday!

boots with a purpose.

i LOVE this song and i was so excited to see this AWESOME video released!
i love cowboy stuff.

this post reminds me of the little vintage cowboy diorama/musicbox i used to have.
and all the baby cowboy boots i used to collect.
and my cowboy bbq party 2 years ago...

under my feet.

can't sleep...

so, i am doing some pretend online shopping,
saving images of lovely things i wish i could buy.

why don't we look at some pretty rugs...
i need one for in in front of our big sectional couch,
right under our coffee table.

these first few are from

next we head over to

and we top it off at target.

yikes!!! help me choose!

our bookshelf:

good thing it's expandable!
right now our books are organized by genre/subject (somewhat).

i really want to sort our books by color just for the visual appeal...
but i am worried i won't be able to find something when i need it!

what do you think?
any tips or ideas?

my travel itch surfaces frequently.
i have been wanting to go to india for years!
but for now i will just keep
watching darjeeling limited,
shopping at anthro,
