I have had this Reed diffuser in my front entryway for almost a year. The liquid is about 1/2 gone and it still smells delicious. This is the longest a reed diffuser has lasted and I'm convinced its the quality. It's from Anthropologie and $32. Sooooooo worth it!! The ones from target last about 30 days before the liquid is gone. Every once and a while I flip the reeds around. Anyway, I just wanted to share 😘 it's called : Capri Blue Reed Diffuser: Volcano. My friend came over today and described it as smelling like candy. #anthropologie
Warning! Long post 🙄 I want to take a poll from my fellow sewers. Who here likes that online fabric stores PRICE their fabrics by the 1/4 yd or 1/2yd? But if you go in the store it's priced by yard...like IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE. So every time I order online I have to calculate for example : if I want 3 yards I enter 6 in the quantity (if it's by 1/2 yard). WHAT.THE.FUDGE man!! Who started this? I get it more for quilting cottons but for dress fabric?? So the reason I'm REALLY FREAKING PISSED is because I ordered that Atelier Brunette fabric in the picture above and thought I was buying 3 yards. But when it came it was 1.5 yds. It was priced at $6 a 1/4 yd!!! My fault for not seeing that this place prices it like this. Thankfully it's 54 so I think I can still get a Melilot shirt from it (even though it shrank 2 after washing). I want to know if you like that the pricing is done this way.
See this kitchen? It might be ours soon! We are in the process of buying this house in Colorado Springs. I hope I didn't just jinx it by talking about it 😳we close in 3 weeks. I've been dreaming of white cabinets for years. YEARS. And I finally get to do that (I'll be painting them myself). So my dilemma is, all white or the lowers another color? Swipe to see examples. Do you have any ideas? Photos you want to send me? Who's done this and has advice? I'll be painting the walls white (not stark but slightly off) and right now I can't change the counters/island counter top but someday I will....and maybe someday I'll have a subway tile backsplash.
My Carolyn pj's are done! I used a navy with white and red flowers voile from #moodfabrics and pearl snaps for the closure. I love them so much!! I've yet to wear them to sleep so I don't know how I'll like sleeping in them. I made them pretty loose in the waist so I think they'll be comfy. The only mods I made on the top was to shorten the sleeves (a lot) so they are more feminine and I raised the rise on the shorts. #closetcasepatterns #carolynpajamas
A Retreat Bag in large. Pattern by Emmaline Bags. This is so cool because it has metal support at the top to keep it open when unzipped (see last photo of me opening and closing it with one hand). It's huge (standard iron for size reference) and not hard to make (actually I made it about a month ago and can't remember if it gave me trouble when making it...) The pattern is free but the metal supports you have to order from her website. #retreatbag #emmalinebags
So sassy. #seamusomalley #annoyingorange #orangefury #orangecat #catwindowseat
This stupid ill-fitting shirt!! It's McCall's 7387 and it looks good on other people but not me. I do see from the photos that it looks better shorter (see last 2 photos where I tuck the tails) but that back pleat pulls in the back and therefore makes the front also lay weird. Maybe I can fix the back? Like take the back panel off and...? Or should I just lose weight?! I should but let's not talk about that. Help! The fabric is a black and white gingham voile I got from fabric. Com (they don't have it anymore) 😭 * I made a size medium. I had made a toile in large and decided to go down a size but maybe I shouldn't have... * * #m7387
A Deer and Doe Melilot shirt made from double gauze (from @missmatatabifabric). I've made this shirt 3 times and still have to read and re read the instructions because they are so minimal. It's the placket that's the problem so I made a mini pattern piece of the hidden placket (photo 4) and stapled it to the booklet. My buttons are slightly too big For the hidden placket so I might change them some day. I made a 44 chest with a 46 hip and it's view B with view A collar. And that last photo is one of those photos that snaps while you're trying figure something out on your phone. * * #ddmelilot #deeranddoe #doublegauze #missmatatabi #kobayashistarrydoublegauze #kobayashi
Guess where we're moving to June 1st ? I think I figured out this will be our 7th move in 16 years (military moves) .. Jon and i have been together since 1992 and have moved 12 times total (13 this coming June). We have, at minimum, 1-2 moves till he retires. Could be more if he stays in past 20😁
It's NOT what it looks like! Or maybe it is🤔. It was the early 90's (crazy times people!). The 2nd photo... I know I had a bra on but it sure doesn't look like it 😝. And the third one is Jon, me, my sister and my brother. Early 90's again. My brother is going through photos and keeps sending me these. None of us look like this anymore!
