I want to sew









Something about fabric just draws me in. Being an interior designer fabric is a really important part of all my designs and not only do I love fabric for window treatments but I also love fabric for CLOTHES! Love, love these little creations by katie over at her blog Katie Did. Her patterns are so simple and sweet.
Being able to sew your children's clothes is both practical and personal, but never mind the fact that it saves money....I would wear these clothes myself! This lady is truly talented not only does she find the time to sew these awesome clothes for her kids but she also sews from her own patterns! If you're interested keep checking her blog cuz I heard a little rumor she might have the patterns available to buy this fall!

Love Those Manimals!

So I was looking around at some old blog posts on frolic and I came across these awesome moccasins. I've found myself thinking of fall and the clothes (my favorite season for fashion) even though the summer weather hasn't been great around Boston this year. At least we Bostonian's can usually count on a beautiful fall season! The company is called Manimal and they make all their moccasins by hand. There's just something about the beautiful texture, soft leather, and pops of unexpected color that have me adding these to my fall wish list. Ahhh fall.

A little bit about pots

I want to share with you a bit about pottery. I studied pottery in college as part of my fine arts minor and really enjoyed the art medium. I love all things textural and pottery is just one of the art forms that's full of it! And there really is no other art as organic and earthy as pottery....after all it really is just dirt and water. The artist I want to share with you is one that I met while working the same studio in college. After graduation she went on to found Lily Pottery and has run a successful business since. I haven't been able to get back into pottery since college but once I have some time and space I plan on buying a wheel so I can start creating pots through this wonderful art form once again! In the meantime, I'm enjoying other artists pots.....here's a look at some of Lily's great work.













Head on over to Lily's store and get a little somethin' for yourself!
