Back on the Bike...

Wow... it's been nine months since I've posted a blog. A lot has happened in this time. And no -- I didn't have a baby ;) Where to begin...
1. Divorced after 18 1/2 years of marriage

2. Sent my twins (and last two) to Kindergarten this fall

3. New job that I love (part time grant writer)

4. New home that I love (actually moved twice in two months!)

5. New car that I love (not so big a deal, but still change! :)

It has been quite a ride and the net-net of it all is that I couldn't be happier. I tried to keep up with everyone's blogs while I was absent -- they certainly were a great happy distraction from it all. I had to put my "business" on hold, but hope to get back into creating soon.
Just wanted to say "hi" and that I hope to be reading more blogs, posting more posts, creating new things, and enjoying every single day for the gift that it is.

PS: picture is from very talented artist Janet Hill. Bought this print from her on Etsy -- among others. Love her style...

Very Vintage

I've added some more sweaters recently to Etsy and these are two of my favorites. They both feature vintage trims (the cream colored trim came all the way from Belgium). Cardigans are the perfect topper for spring and summer, so take a look and see if you find one you like.

Just For The Frill of It

I have been oh so absent. I've been MIA. Somebody put out an APB because I just went missing for three weeks.

Things have been a little "busy" here and I've been very preoccupied -- but more to come on that at a later date.

In the meantime, here are some sweet spring aprons that I just listed on Etsy. All made from vintage sheets. Hope they put a little spring in your day -- we are basking in the low 80's here in Colorado. But spring is such a tease here and we probably have a couple more snow storms to go before we can really pull out the swimwear.

Prints Charming

I neglected to mention in my last post how much I loved Maggie Gyllenhaal's look on Oscar night. She looked like a goddess and I think the print is fantastic. Enough Oscar fashion. Until next year... or until my People magazine arrives this Friday.

Oh my how I love the Oscars. I didn't see nearly as many movies this year as I wanted to, and with the Academy adding five more Best Picture Noms, how's a girl supposed to squeeze all that in? But who cares about the flicks -- it's all about the fashion. I personally love this dress Zoe Saldana wore. Then again, traditional just doesn't cut it for me.

I did see "An Education" with Carey Mulligan, and in addition to being a fabulous young actress, her fashion sense is sublime. All award season she has pulled out some amazing and different frocks and this Prada number is no exception. Not sure if I'm digging the heavier shoe tho...

Demi looked gorgeous -- if we could all look like this in our 40's -- I don't care how she got it (surgery, naturally...) she looks amazing.

I'm so glad Sandra Bullock won, because she gives the best acceptance speeches. And her whole look was amazing -- the dress, her sleek hair, bright lips. She looked like a winner.

And finally, SJP -- gotta love her fashion sense. Never safe, never boring. This Chanel dress is so alluring, so different, and perfectly styled with a wristful of bangles and classic hair. Carrie Bradshaw never disappoints.
Did you have a favorite dress?

Spring Fling!

I've been so absent from blogging lately. Some of it has been for "not so fun" reasons.... and some of it is because I have the Spring Fling next weekend! It's an amazing show in Denver and a great way to kick off Spring. I have been putting in some late nights trying to finish up my work, and I have a busy weekend ahead. If you happen to be in the Denver area the weekend of March 13/14, stop by the Phipps Tennis Pavillion (Saturday 12-5, Sunday 11-4) for amazing artisans, items and food. Back to blogging soon!

Still a little bit of winter left...

As much as we are all wishing for spring, there is some winter left (very evident on the East Coast). So for those of you who tend to shy away from color, or just gotta have their basic black, here's a couple of classic cardi's that will help you wrap up the winter season, and will become favorites in your closet. More spring styles to come in my Etsy shop -- big shop today...
