I get so much joy from reading all of your comments and it gives me an opportunity to discover new blogs each and everyday. I find myself so enthrawred and litterally unable to keep up! It’s so exciting to know that there is so much to be discovered each time I sit down to my computer.

My latest find is the delightful Grate Full Day blog. Lindsey stole my heart with her recent post about Anthropologie’s summer Dip Dyed Windows. As most of you know by now I have a thing for Anthropologie, a crush as it were. Their collective genius is endless and this seasons merchandising is no exception. From the Anthropologie’s Facebook Page:

” Each is a joyful tribute to summer color—from pineapple gold and purple basil to crustacean red and saltwater teal. Each, too, is a testament to the passion and drive of our visual team—from scouring thrift stores for fabric scraps to dip-dying and drying, it was quite a process.”



Oh, The Places You’ll Sew!

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! The sun finally came out here in Seattle yesterday and it made for such a perfect weekend day! I have to say that the sun really made me look forward to summer which of course made me think of long weekend trips and vacations. Sadly I don’t think my hubby and I will be taking any trips this summer but a girl can always dream… Which brings me to today’s post; these stitching postcards from Uncommon Goods.

The lovely Halli of Good Wifey sent me a link to these stitching postcards last week. This would be a great personal keepsake to remember the route of a favorite trip or share your adventures with friends. Love the simplicity of this idea and it’s affordable too! Thanks Halli!
